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: Polk CSi30
Surrounds: Polk R15

Wow that is a great price for the speakers...if they sound good...I had the 190? and Titans V5. IMO the 190 did not have the detail and clarity I wanted and bought the cc290 which is a very good center imo. At that price it seems a deal even if you don't keep the center.

TV: Samsung 60KS8000, Rcvr: Marantz SR5011, Speakers: front/Paradigm Monitor 11v5, center/Paradigm CC-290, surround/Paradigm Atom, sub/Paradigm PDR-100, DVD: Samsung BD-J5700, Remote: Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home

My local dealer, they are authorized and on Paradigms website but because we are a fairly small city they don't stock a lot of the higher end items so I'm waiting for it to come from Paradigm

$190 for those three speakers seems reasonable, IMO. The CC-170 should provide decent vocal clarity but, if it doesn't, replacing it with a gently-used CC-350 or -370 for ~$150 will definitely do the trick.

You may not like the generic crossover. Changing the caps may help. Use a decent quality cap.
SIR.did you just recently asked me(via PM) about my Paradigm collection of the Monitor series a few days ago....????I am going nuts trying to find the member who did..

He or she) commented that his spouse hated the "Black" versions of the Monitor series.

I misstated what I had on hand and after careful inspection.... I have not only the BLACK units... but several 'Mint pairs of the WHITE !!!!

HERE GOES, IN MATCHED SERIAL # PAIRS:

ATOMS V5......WHITE (2PRS)

ATOMS V5........BLACK (1PR)

MiNI MONITORS V5......BLACK (1PR)

TITAN MONITORS V5....BLACK (1PR)

CC-290 V5 ..BLACK (1PR)..CAN BE USED FOR STEREO OR MULTI-CHNL

IF YOU ARE THE PERSON WHO INQUIRED ABOUT THESE SPKRS, PLS BE KIND ENOUGH TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS.

MOREOVER, I RECALL THE INQUIRER, SAYING HIS "WIFE HATED THE PARADIGM "BLACK"...... THE COURTESY OF A RESPONSE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED..... TNX

Well it took you 5 days to respond. How about giving me a little time?

FWIW, it's Spring Break and I was on the road all day yesterday.

Your theatre is very close to the size as mine. I'm 18x16x10.

I just took delivery on the 95F's, 55C, and 25S last week also. Unbelievable!

For my speakers I have the following:

Surrounds - 25S
Rears - SA-35 V.3 (In Wall) https://www.paradigm.com/products-ar...5/page=reviews
Atmos - CI Elite E80-R (in ceiling)https://www.paradigm.com/products-cu.../page=overview

The in ceilings are placed in between my first and second row.

I'm running a 7.2.2 system.

Paradigm Trade Up program going on right now...

Am I reading this right - that you can only get 20% off either - 1 pair of speakers OR 1 center OR 1 sub?

Nope, you can use it for anything. You'd have to "trade in" a center for the center discount, fronts for the front discount, etc but you can literally give any speaker even if not working.
