Glad I could help. I hope they will ship it to you

Already posted as a WTB in the classifieds, but looking for a pair of v6 (or v5) atom/mini monitor in black if anyone has a pair in great shape.

I went from MA Silver series to Paradigm 60's and 590 v5 and there was a HUGE difference. I'm still a huge fan of Paradigm after going to JTR Triple 12's. Great sound for music and home theater with the digms. Do it and don't think twice IMO.

Beauties. Had the exact same speakers. I used them for 99% HT and gaming. Not much if any 2 channel so 100's would have gone to waste for me. Enjoy them! Like the tape job of the last speaker for the toe in. I do that too.

LOL Baron. The tape job was for the previous V3's. I haven't done a master set with the new ones yet.

Curious what center channel is a match for these beauties?

The CC-590 is Paradigm's recommended match for the 60's but if you have enough room and can find one I'd get the CC-690.
For break-in just play them at moderate volume for a couple of weeks, maybe less if you listen to them a lot.

Break in tips? Yes, send them to me and it will take about a year to truly break them in properly. I'll even submit progress reports.

I know some people here are/were looking for cc-690 ... there's a piano black one on Audiogon. Came close to pulling the trigger myself, but realistically it's too big for my needs.
