When I buy my next speaker, it will be one of these 3 brands. I will buy based solely on best performer regardless of price.
I like a speaker that feel like it wraps around you...to me the Paradigms did that.
Bringing the thread back from the dead I see
There should be some thoughts posted about the sigs in here? If not, maybe Warp will chime in. I can say, the Sig line's Be Tweeter is much better than the Studios. As for what speaker fits you out of this group would depend on what you look for in performance(output, bass extension, timbre accuracy, mid range clarity, top end extension, etc)
I can say I did just upgrade my Ascend Towers to the RAAL tweeter(and new crossover). We hope to get the speakers together again soon for another comparison.
