This is a duplicate to my post in the general Home Theater forum...I thought I'd post it where those who have apparently "seen the Diva light" reside!
How many people have compared the Diva 2.1 to the Paradigm Studio 20's?
Anyone compare the Diva C3 center to the Paradigm Studio CC center?
I'm trying to decide if the increased price for the Paradigms will be accompanied by an equal increase in performance/quality.
These speakers will be placed in a solid bookshelf at 30" high, with about 16" of depth. My room is 11' x 18'. My receiver is a Denon 3802, and I'm using a Definitive Technology ProSub 100TL on the sub-out. I have about a 70/30 split for music vs movie...
Currently I am using Paradigm Mini-Monitors on the bookshelves, and they seem to be very fatiguing and too-forward (they did however work fantastically as surrounds in my larger room).
I listened extensively to the Studio 100's and posted my opinions somewhere in one of the Diva threads. The short version is when I was auditioning speakers, my favorites came down to the Studio 100's and the B&W 804's in my price range. They were both such good speakers that I finally clicked on the order button for Divas because I couldn't decide. I've never looked back. They sure sound sweet to me, and I saved some money as well.
