Hi all. I'm back with more questions. My room mate and I have moved to a new city, and we're looking at setting up a new home theater area. I know I want to stick with Paradigms, I'm just not sure whether I want to go with Monitors or Studios. I know new Studios are coming out and I think I'd prefer the design of the older Studio 60s because I believe the new ones have smaller drivers...
so with that in mind, the setups I've been comparing are:
Studio 60 fronts, Studio 20 surrounds, CC-590 center channel.
Monitor 7 fronts, Mini Monitor surrounds, CC-290 center channel.
I already own a CC-290 but I'd be willing to sell it, or relegate it to a different setup somewhere. Either set-up will be paired with an SVS PB-12 Plus, if necessary I'll move up to an Ultra for the Studio series to mesh with.
Main concern is in the amp area. I'm more than likely going to match either setup with a Denon, and was looking at a 2809. I've heard the Studio series and, while I'm confident it will be enough for the Monitors, if I need to upgrade to a 3808 or something like that then I'm not sure if it will be justified, the setup will be basically twice as expensive.
Any thoughts on the issue are appreciated. My worry is that if I don't get the Studios I'll regret it later.
