Yeah, from my online research and what was mentioned in above posts, it seems that one of the following are the likely candidates:
- Paradigm SIG-1.5R V.3, or
- CI Elite E80-R or
- CI Pro P80-R
I'm not sure if I really want/need to spend the $$ on the SIG or CI Elite, though. Interesting how Paradigm's web site quotes the prices for each speaker (as opposed to price for a pair of speakers), so cost is double what one would initially assume.
Yeah, given how much I spent on my existing Paradigm Signature speakers (back in 2006), it seems that I should go all out and get the SIG or CI Elite but I don't know if I would really appreciate the difference between them and the CI Pro when watching movies. While I appreciate my existing Signature S8 for front L/R and C5 for center, my existing rears and surrounds (Signature S2 for rears and ADP for surrounds) are probably overkill (but back then, I wanted an exact timbre match and had $$ burning a hole in my pocket... plus it was back in the days when I listened to SACD so rears/surrounds were a higher priority than compared to now. Now, I use my home theater for movies 99% of the time and only 1% of the time for music).
These days, it's not easy to go to an audio store and listen to different speakers and so need to rely on forums to get more info before purchasing these speakers without having heard them.... So, if anyone has the Elite, the SIG or the Pro, I'd like to hear from you.
