If I were stuck with these choices I would be seeking Tribute. Similar price to prestige and a much better speaker.

NAD M15 /NAD M25 / PSB STRATUS GOLD / PSB STRATUS 6C /DENON AVR 3300/CARVER TFM 45/35 - ANTHEM MCA3 / NAD T163
IMAGE DYNAMICS / INFINITY RS3 / POLK MONITOR 10/ALTEC 501 / INTEGRA 50.3/PARADIGM DSP 3400 / GOLDENEAR AON3 / HK AVI 200

An Observer of many philosophies, a slave to none.

There is one thing I thought was strange about the grille. On the 95F, if you wish to have the tweeter exposed but keep the grille ON, it magnetically clamps to cover the bottom 1/2 inch of the tweeter. Has anyone else seen this on the 95F? On Paradigm's website no part of the tweeter is covered in the images. The salesperson I worked with thought the grilles for the L/R speakers might have gotten mixed up, but he couldn't find the matching second grille.

I couldn't imagine that this would be the issue. Any 95F owners out there?

Basically, are the home junk? If they are not assembled in Canada where are they assembled?
Thoughts?
Also, is there an appreciable difference between the Prestige 75's and the monitor 11's. I'm looking for a cleaner clearer sound.

Have Studio 60v4s and cc690.

What speaker models would go best with those as follows:

1. Atmos up-firing for top of studio 60s
2. In-ceiling height speakers
3. L/R surrounds (on-wall, not in-wall)
4. In-ceiling rear surrounds

Looking to complete an Atmos setup

In or on ceiling overheads for Atmos would give you superior 3D envelopment. Side and rear surrounds just above head level while seated. Look for monopoles, or if you have to, bipoles, but not dipoles.

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

That doesn't sound right. I wouldn't think left or right would matter, but maybe it's upside down if only half the tweeter is exposed? You're right - on the Paradigm website it clearly demonstrates a fully revealed tweeter. My dealer doesn't have the 95, but on the 85 I noticed that tweeter exposed vs. tweeter covered I had to flip the grille 180 degrees on the vertical for the magnets to line up. Thought this was a bit odd.....
