I am very interested in the center channel speaker being natural and full. My Def Tech sounds much better than most center channels that I have heard (mostly friends and in some stores).

My overall plan was Studio 60's CC-590, ADP-590 the sub I was going with a different company on that.

thanks

actually I found an interesting thread about the two right here

Klipsch or Paradigm
I find the Paradigms to be revealing without being cutting and harsh, especially in the higher frequencies. Klipsch's (especially their lower end models) tend to get nasally and brittle when pushed. I can't listen to Klipsch horns very long.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

thanks, I was looking at the RF-7II or RF-82II compared to the Studio 60's. From reading the other forum thread I am worried about dialog as it's always been an important part of a Home Theater setup.

The Studios are superior to the Klipsch RF line, that's for darn sure.

Newest additions to my basement home theater. My vinyl sounds amazing now...huge upgrade over the Atoms I had serving as my mains. The previous owner had them for about a year and gave me a very fair deal.

I should have listened to my dealer and purchased the 390 day one. By the way, I had to get the 390 off of US Audiomart because V7 came out shortly after I purchased V6. You'll be in a similar situation when the new studios hit the market.
I wonder if that should be my next upgrade, getting a center 1 or center 3? I've got CC-190 v5 with Monitor 7's (v6 perhaps) and Atom monitors v5. They told me Monitor 7's were the biggest fronts I could go with a CC-190.

I had the monitor setup before with the CC-390. When I replaced it with Studios, I went to the CC-690. Huge improvement in clarity, and midbass.

Paradigm v.5 speakers: Studio 100s - Fronts, Studio CC-690 - Center , ADP-590s - Surround.
Pardigm V.4 speakers: Studio 20s - Rear Surround, Sub12
Pre/Pro - Yamaha CX-A5000, AMP - Yamaha MX-A5000
TV - Samsung UNDF658000

Thanks, I'm thinking I'll bite the bullet in the next few months and upgrade my CC-190 to a Center 3.

Has anyone tried using both bookshelves as surrounds as well as Paradigm's dedicated surrounds (Surround 1/3 or ADP series)? I've got Atoms for my surrounds in my 5.1 setup and I'm wondering since I need 2 speakers for my bedroom maybe I should take back the Atoms and put Surround 1's or 3's out in my living room. Two Surround 1's are more expensive than two Atoms so it would need to be worth the cost.

Thoughts?

I have S2s for my rear surrounds and ADP3s as my side surrounds.

Given the choice would you rather have 4 ADP3s or 4 S2s for surrounds?

I have S2s and ADP3s. For surround I prefer 4 ADP3s. I don't listen to multichannel music. It sounds weird enough hearing it from a surround speaking, but the ADP3s are not a good speaker for this.

It depends on your preference for multi-channel music and Dolby Atmos surround. The S2's would probably be the better bet in those scenarios. Not sure what Paradigm has up their sleeves for Atmos friendly, wide dispersion monopole surrounds.

Got home late last night from Boston after picking up all the gear except the A2, which is on backorder.

All I was able to get done today was run 8 CAT6 home runs to the rack-mounted switch in the basement, run the wire for the Studio 20's (rears), fill the stands with sand and get the 20's mounted.

Tomorrow I hope to spend all day getting everything else set up.

Here is a picture from last night after getting everything unloaded:



SWMBO didn't realize the cabinet that she wanted, which looked so good in the store (large room), is really too big for our living room - it's 85" long.
