There is a shop close by that carries Paradigm, so I might give them a listen..
I'm trying to get some opinions before I make the drive to hear them, so I can least focus and narrow it down..
I havn't heard the RVX-42.. How's that stack up to the 51's?
The RVX-42 have a differ sound to them , diffty have to have a sub. the cabinets are plastic & Metal fronts , but I listened to them at my local shop , iactually was thinking on going with a set just for my TV on the sides for reg, viewing , I have a HP Plasma with ditachable speakers on it , they do not sound very good at all , but not wasting the money on them , I dont watch regg, TV anyways LOL, but hey its worth the time to listen to them all , as for the Paradigm , I had a center channel by them like 16 years ago , it was the last one, Not my cup of tea , but alot of pepole love them , so again go listen to them , look on the Klipsch web site and see if you can find a dealer near you , which way do you live from pittsburg? just curious I'm just north of you , up above Williamsport PA. i live on the border of NY Actually pitts like only 2 1/2 hours from me , lolIf you get froggy give me a yell I have three shops up here that sell Klispch , all of them even the Klipsch Horns ,, LOL have a good one , hope i helped you think abit more ,
