I just heard a pair of Paradigm Atom v7. Jaw drop ! Soundstage, imaging, off axis, highs, mids, LOUDNESS everything outperforms a huge floorstander! That doesn't makes sense at all, how can this be possible? I thought bookshelfs are typically crap? And they suck on highs and mids because they have limited single woofer... but not this one. Totally change my perception of "the more woofers the better" And if Atom is that awesome how would it's bigger floorstander Monitor 11 perform? I heard they have a $799 price tag but made in China. The Canadian's version is $1299. Are they different in sound quality? Now here's my problem. I ordered 2 pairs of E55ti on black friday unfortunately I can't listen to them as I don't live in the US. Speakers will stay in my American's friends house till shipped to my country. How would Paradigm Monitor 11 compare with EMPtek E55ti? Miles apart or just slightly better? I'm thinking should I return the EMPteks. But if E55ti can keep up or at least be on par with the Atom I'll gladly keep them. If you've heard them both brands I would like to know your thoughts. Please share. Yippeee...
