Well, I'm officially in the Paradigm Club! Went into my local dealer today to get rid of my Parasound C2 and got to talking and listening. Turns out some rich guy just traded in his 6-month old 95F's and 55C in Midnight Cherry for the Persona 9H's so he sold me the set for $4000 cash plus the C2, like new in original boxes! Add tax-free to boot :-)

SWEET! Picking them up in 2 weeks when I have time and they're already broken in. So my Amphion Argon 2's will become my surrounds.

I think that is a tough call, I don't think either is a great match. The discontinued SA series is what's ideal to match with Studios. I think the new in ceilings and in walls are a different design over the Studio series. The Elite and Pro both use the same tweeter which is different than the studio series. The difference between the Elite and Pro is the midrange cone. The elite uses aluminum and a larger voice coil and the Pro uses polypropylene. The studio series has both aluminum and polypropylene in its line up. If you play loud the elite might be worth the extra to get a few extra db out of it, otherwise I am not sure I would spend the difference on the Elite for its slight improvement in sound.

Well. The 3F is definitely better than the 95F. If it is within your budget, go for it. The clarity is incredible.

I found the 85F with a better sub is better than the 95F with a cheaper sub. With good sub or subs, there is no benefit with the 95F. I hope this helps...
