This is a 15x18 living room with cathedral ceilings.
I'm leaning towards the Atlantic for the 30day trial with AVS. Also was always a bit of a sucker for anything with THX on it.
Which Paradigm Studios are you considering? The Studio 60 would be the most comparable to the AT 4400's. I personally prefer the sealed AT's to the ported Paradigms, but frankly, you can't go wrong with either one of those speakers. They're both very neutral sounding, (which IMO is a good thing.) Also, with it's higher sensitivity and higher power handling, I would expect more output from the AT speaker. However, I doubt you'll find a dealer that allows a 30-day, in-home trial with a no-hassle return on the Paradigms.
To be fair, you should ask the same question in the Paradigm thread.
