I currently have a basic home theater setup: DLP tv, Harman/Kardon 135 receiver, and two lower end Sony front speakers. I'm looking to upgrade my speakers and add a center speaker and sub woofer as well, and I'm leaning towards a set of Paradigm Monitor series 7 or 9 speakers, along with a matching center speaker and sub. My first question is, what are your general thoughts of Paradigm? They seem to get a lot of praise from a vast array of people, and owners of their speakers seem to love them as well. Next, is a sub woofer recommended or will a set of good quality floor speakers (such as Paradigm Monitor) suffice overall? If a sub is recommended, should I still run bass through my floor speakers and sub or strictly through the sub itself? (I've gotten many different opinions here) Finally, the room itself is fairly large, approx. 15x20 with 9 ft. ceilings, and I assume my H/K 135 is a solid enough of a receiver to run a set floor Monitor series speakers. Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated, and thanks in advance for your advice.
