Those fronts should keep you from upgrade-itis for awhile, you are leapfrogging into audiophile territory with those bad boys!
The sub is OK, that would be the thing that I would want to upgrade, but it's definitely "good enough."
Another thing, Paradigm holds their value pretty well, if you do get the urge to upgrade you should be able to sell without taking a loss (depending on your wheeling & dealing today - although I would just pay the $700 and leave smiling if he spent much time hooking them up & verifying that they work).
Do the speakers look like this? http://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....40-version-4-n
Yes, Ron, they look pretty much exactly like those. But they are from 2002, so I would guess V.2 maybe? I forgot to look. I'm sure he would let me bring my 607 over and hook it up, it's just a pain unhooking everything. But maybe it's worth it, huh? Like I said you can't tell these from new, so I doubt there would be any problems with them. I'm thinking on it, but I'm sure I would love them paired up to my 607.
I guess biggest worry is whether I would be happier with this setup or put the money into an HSU/ED sub and a different set of fronts? Cuz the wife would never go for this setup and then another sub upgrade. I'm sure I'd be looking at divorce papers!!
