It would help if you can share photos when you get a chance. Here is few screen shots. I did not take in the back. I will do next time.

We're quite similar. From the wall my plasma is mounted to the back wall by the couch is 31 feet. I sit 26ft from the tv and the front presence up high work very well for my room. Give it a try and report your findings. I'll snap some pictures later this evening.

Hmm ok now that I got a little Christmas bonus is the CC-390 worth a 250$ increase in price over the CC-290? Would it be overkill for a couple on Titan monitors or should I just stick with the 290?

Also, what could I use as surrounds (paradigm), any ideas?

Re the Denon, call Electronics Expo to get a better price over the phone than they can publish online, and you might get the 3312 (or at least the 2312) in your price range. The main advantage to the 3312 (since you're not interested in video) is a little more power, and as important, pre-outs, so you can add an outboard amp at some point if you feel you want one.

Do you think it would be worth spending the extra cash for the Anthem MRX 300? How does the Onkyo TX-NR809 match up to the Anthem? I will be running a 5.1 system with Monitor 9's v7, Center 3, Surround 1's, and Epik 300 watt sub. I could spring for the Anthem and wait for some of the other stuff I want to purchase. What do you think?

What do you guys think? Is this a deal to good to pass up?
The deal is from a local friend so NO shipping is involved.
Thanks for your input.....

I upgraded from Studio 100's v3 to W5 v.3 which are close cousins to the S6 v.3. I have really liked the result, can not comment on the price but do like your option.
post #23196 of 30097
I just submitted a classified for posting to sell my Studio 100's if anyone is interested. I replaced them with a set of W5's a while back and am just getting around to listing them.

Not very familiar with Anthem, sorry.

If I was in your position, I'd go with the Anthem without a doubt. Onkyo while I have to admit makes good bang for the buck components does suffer from quality/reliability issues. Anthem makes very good/reliable components. And I've heard only positive feedback regarding Anthems customer service, and the very opposite for Onkyo. They have terrible customer service, especially regarding warranty issues.

The 290 should be right for your application. However, If you plan on purchasing some bigger floorstanders in the future, then I would think about the 390, otherwise the 290 is adequate.

Thanks, I was thinking the same thing too, I just wanted some reassurance

Especially since that extra 250 could go to a pair of real surrounds like the Emotiva ERD-1's

Hopefully the Titans and the Emotiva's blend well, unless there is something in the paradigm line that would fit the Titans better?

They should work out great. Have fun with your new toys and post your thoughts of your addition to the family.
post #23202 of 30097
I'm looking for a set of 5.1 speakers to go with the main TV (50"). Ideally, based on sound and looks I'd go with some Studios. However, the room isn't really set up to accommodate the size or to handle that sound quality in the space. It's very open, long and doesn't lend well to surround placement.

My thought was to go with the new Cinema package to out something that fits the space and sounds good. It is sad that the 200/400 must be wall mounted. Perhaps the 5.1 package, or a 5.0 mix with an SVS or HSU.

The other option would be to look into some of the smaller Monitors. My concern there is that the C1 or Surround 1 would be too large for my setup.

I have not heard either of the new lines, although I have a few stores in the area so going for a listen isn't an issue.

Thoughts/suggestions? Much appreciated.

I have Monitor 9's and a CC-290 paired with ERD-1's and I think they blend very well together. They are excellent surrounds for the price.

OK thanks, I was hoping someone had some experience with paradigms and ERD1s
post #23206 of 30097
Ordered some new paradigms the other day! Studio 60's with cc-590 - got a great deal on some v5 demo units in cherry (color I've been wanting). I used to have some studio 20v3 and sold them them about five years ago to get towers (not paradigms) that I really enjoyed for music, but left me wanting in the HT department. Super excited to get back with some 'digms! Thanks to many who've given me tips and advice the past year as I've researched and thought about this. I'll let you all know how I feel about them after they're set up.

I need some feedback guys. I am looking at buy two paradigm floorstanding speakers and a paradigm center speaker. I could get the Monitor 9's v7 and a center 3 or for the same price I could get the Monitor 11's v6 and a cc-390 for the same price. What do you guys recommend? I will not be able to listen to the v6 versions but I can demo the v7's.

I would go with the v7's. The new tweeter is a nice upgrade.

post #23213 of 30097
If possible audition the 7's with both the center3 and the cc390.
post #23214 of 30097

Do the version 6 and version 7 have the same timbre?

My sales rep has told me no because it is 100% new and different design and components.

in theory i agree that they would not be timbre matched because of so much of a redesign (unlike the v5 to v6 move which was not nearly as drastic). however, practically speaking, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to mix-n-match b/w those series. i've heard them side-by-side in the same room and didn't notice huge differences - certainly would be fine mixing rears and fronts, even w/ five-channel music. however, i'd try to keep fronts/center same series, but still wouldn't be the end of the world to mix them (after all, some similarities would be there given they have similar backgrounds). just my two cents on it.

Does anyone own or have heard the Millenia one 5.1 system? Thinking about replacing my 5.1 Klipsch RF7 system for the bedroom and going for something much smaller.

If you do a search there are a couple different threads on here currently on that model. I dont have the full 5.1 set, but just bought the surrounds and am installing now.
