Interested to hear your thoughts. I'm debating between the same setup you just got vs Monitor Audio Gold 300's.

The Gold's are more $ and I'm wondering if it's worth it.

Also curious what color you got. I'm interested in the walnut but it looked a little orange to me at the place I demoed them....
Hahaha

I went with black walnut. I have always been a black speaker guy though.

I'm coming from Energy Connoisseurs so this has been a big improvement. As far as the sound... absolutely incredible so far. I'm just breaking them in and have a music station playing all day so I can get the hours up and really give them a test.

My biggest concern in spending this amount of money was the wow factor. I wanted these to blow away my old speakers and they absolutely do. So crisp and clean. I'll know more once I get to open them up.

As far as pricing... they have a trade in even going on for the month of March. Trade in any set of speakers and you get 20% off. I bought a speaker set in our local classifieds for $15 and traded them in.

The monitors are a nice option as well but for my application (90% movies, 10% music) I thought the paradigms were the better set to accompany my Paradigm in walls & in ceiling speakers.

Yes my dealer gave me the trade in price, but let me keep the speakers I was going to trade in.

Same but they where offering 20% my whole order anyways this just gives them a bit of kickback from Paradigm. I'm waiting for them to arrive but I ordered (in midnight cherry):
2x 85F
1x 55C
2x 15B
2x J-29
2x CI Elite E65-R
Anthem MRX-720

I'm hoping for it to arrive this week, I'm so excited. Upgrading from Monitor 7/CC290 front stage and Atom rear (all V6)

Greetings, Paradigm owners.

I'm looking to get better clarity from my front sound stage, and center channel in particular. I currently have the Andrew Jones Pioneer C22 in the middle, with the BR22s as mains.

A gentleman from craigslist is offering a Paradigm CC-170 and a pair of Titan v4's for $190. He says he bought them about 8 years ago and that he hasn't driven them very hard.

Would the CC-170 provide a lot of vocal clarity? Assuming these are in good shape, would this be a good deal? Thanks for your help.

Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1022-K
Sub: SVS SB12-NSD
Fronts: Pioneer SP-BS22-LR
Center: Pioneer SP-C22
Surrounds: Polk R15
