Hi Millenia Owner's
I am currently building a house with a dedicated theater. I am starting from scratch and have not purchased anything at this point. I am having a hard time choosing between Mythos Ten or Millenia 30 (or maybe other brand????).
I know they are both wall mount, but i just like the look of all the speakers being off the ground even if it is a dedicated theater.
I plan to mount my screen to a decorative frame that sticks out from the wall about 5 inches with led lights behind the screen. This will allow the 5 inch or so Mythos Ten or Millenia 30 to be flush with the screen and it should look cool.
Can anyone help me with some guidance or other component selections? I think I like both setups below.
I am planning on going with either of the following.
L/C/R = Paradigm Millenia 30
R = Paradigm Surround 3 or
2 Sub = Paradigm DSP-3100
L/C/R = Definitive Technology Mythos Ten
R = Definitive Technology SR-8080BP
2 Sub = Klipsch SW-110 Subwoofer
Other common components I am thinking of
Receiver = Denon AVRX3000
Projector = Epson PowerLite 3030 3D 3LCD
Screen = Elite Screens ezFrame Series R106WH1 106" 16:9 Projection Screen
Blue Ray = LG BP530 3D
You should definitely demo these speakers in a home theater retailer. My experience is that in general the Paradigm speakers have better sound than the DefTech ones (at least when comparing the Millenia and Mythos lines), but when I made the decision to buy my Millenia 300s it was about 5 years ago, so maybe the DefTech speakers have gotten better. I'm not talking about the rest of the line, just the Mythos or Millenia.
Compare the speaker specs, but notice that DefTech isn't clear about where the -3db point is for the Mythos. I know that my Millenia is around 80Hz, so I got a sub with a 10" driver that is easily able to cover the gap all the way down from the 80Hz point where the Millenias roll off. A bigger sub could have given me more "boom" but it wouldn't have been as clear at the higher end of it's range where it needs to take over for the front speakers.

I will be traveling to NYC soon.When I am there I would like buy MilleniaOne 5.0 speakers.I prefer small speakers because of my living room size..and I love the design of MilleniaOne.
Actually I have cinema 90 ct series but it's time to change and I learned that there is a big difference between them so I decided to upgrade ..I have been looking for a good price for the millenia in NYC over internet but couldn't find it yet..Do you guys know any internet site or store in NYC selling MilleniaOne over good price?
Can I buy it around 1000$?
