I like paradigm the studio 100 s ,cc490, studio 10 or 20 rears. I was going to find focal 836s too listen to. My search is not over yet. I know we are not in the speaker fourm but it has been mentioned. Maybe I can stretch budget for amp/ pre/ pro. What suggestions do you guys have ???? To take me to the next level over say studio 100 s, or focal 836 if I like them or B & W CDM 9. It is funny how this can become a sickness I started at 4 k speaker budget which would be by far the nicest setup I ever had.
