I still have a pair of a/d/s CM7's. Looking to go with either B+W or Paradigm in the near future. BTW, first post; think this forum is great.

I see a lot of people have Definitive Tech speakers and I was impressed in there ad in S&V magazines. Was thinking of upgrading to HTIB from Definitive Tech but was hesistant to buy their lowest priced HTIB because it could be utter crap. Can somebody recommend me a low expensive yet quality set from Definitive Tech? This is for a bedroom Home Theater so it can't get too loud (other housemates live too). Also, I would be upgrading from my Logitech $250 THX certified 5.1 that I also used for my computers. Hmmm, maybe Definitive Tech is too much of a step up?

Just picked up the following:

Paradigm Titan V.4 front l/r
Paradigm CC-170 V.4 Center
Paradigm Atom V.4 rear
Paradigm PDR-10 V.3 Sub

I got it set up last night and WOW!

10/2 update:

Added a Rotel RSX-1057
Added a NAD T534 DVD player

I really can't believe how the Rotel brings the speakers alive!!! And the NAD at 1080i looks great on our 52" Mitsubishi DLP!

JBL62 - Front L/R - old but good.
Universal Security Instruments - V9002 - Center - older but works.
Bose 141 - Surround L/R - got for free.
Athena AS-P300 - the newest and best.
Harman Kardon AVR-340 - refurb and wonderful.

Thrown together but works.

My dad just got the smallest htib that was offered from Def tech and it sounds excellent. I was kinda jealous of how loud and clear it was for being so small.

I do not have speakers yet. I have 5 ceiling cutouts and want to put in recessed ceiling speakers. This will be for a HT system. I was looking at Mirage Omnicans5's and 6's . Budget is 150-200$ for each plus 300-400$ for sub. Want to power this with MArantz 5500 05 5600. If Ican get a 7500 MArantz for 650$ or less than it will do. Any speaker suggestion s within these parameters much appreciated

I bought a pair of Mirage M760's back in '89. Liked them so much I added two pairs of M260's for surrounds. I still have the 760's, and they still sound as good today as when I bought them.
However, I can't use them right now because of space limitations. I'm building a new house which will have plenty of room, but it won't be ready for about ten months.
So, for now I'm using:
Mirage Omnisat v2 FS left, right.
Mirage Omnisat v2 CC
Mirage S10 sub, but have an S12 on the way.
Mirage Omnisat v2 sats (4, but not using them right now).

Considering that the room is terrible for this, the Omnisats so far sound terrific. When I get set up in the new house, I'll be able to really compare them to the old 760's.
But I may also go with the new OMD 15 that Mirage just announced.
Decisions, decisions..........

Jack

Paradigm center, sub and rears. Not so good KEF fronts. Would like recomendations for new fronts (towers 36 inch high -black gloss, cherry or maple) and center speaker to go with my new Pioneer 1140 plasma. Thanks

For my 1140, I have an Outlaw 1070 running DefTech Mythos 6's L/R and a Mythos 7 center. If the 1140 is as high as it can go on the stand, then the Mythos 7 fits exactly on the stand and under the panel with absolutely no room to spare. The DefTech's are pretty good.

My identical setup except Whafedale Powercube DX12 sub instead of SVS. Rosewood veneer. Lovely sound from beautiful speakers! Are there better. Sure. Any better for the price. Doubtful.

Just noticed...Paradigm studios are really good. See last post about Wharfedales. My top two choices when I was shopping. Either would be really nice.
