Hmmm.... in the market to upgrade and was looking seriously at Monitor 11 v6. Thanks for posting the info on the v7. Looks like a step-up except I am a little disappointed in the new center. The v6 line had 3 centers including the CC-390 with 7 drivers. That's what I was probably going to get, mostly used for movies. With the v7 line, there are only 2 centers and the biggest one has 4 drivers. Bummer! I wonder if this would be a step-down for movies?

FYI: Paradigm has moved away from the "v" designation. Officially the new models are "Series 7," not v7/version 7.

This is going to make me want to jump to the version 7's!!! I just got a version 6 system! Happens with everything!! pisses me off hahahahahaha

It's a shame they dropped the Titan Monitor... I'm a fan of large driver bookshelfs, mainly because they allow for a slightly lower crossover taking some stress off subwoofer amps. The Titan was one of the few mainstream models left with a mid/woofer larger than 6.5".

Pretty cool to see technology from the Studio series trickling down to the Monitors.


No big surprise that they dropped the Titan and the CC-390 mega-center. They must not have sold many of them...


Something else interesting about the new centers...it looks like they're sealed. All the other speakers list "bass reflex", but the centers don't.

Yeah the cc-390 is just way too massive....no one can fit it!!! haha And I dont think they would seal their centers......on the cc-290 paradigm site they dont say "bass reflex" either but they do have "bass reflex" holes in the back as well as their cc-190.

For those of us who can fit it, its sad to see the beast cut out of the new series



In a hypothetical situation, if I found myself upgrading from v6 to Series 7, it would feel like a total downgrade going from a CC-390 to a Center 3.

Anyone want a Paradigm Monitor v.6 5.1 system?? Lol. I'm actually thinking of upgrading to the version 7's if I could sell my current system! I haven't had the v.6 that long. Currently have the Monitor 11's, cc290, adp390's and the dsp3200 which I might just keep. Anyone looking for those I live in Edmonton,Alberta!!


And anyone who has listened to the new version 7's post what you think of them!! Sound wise and everything compared to the v.6's. Thanks.

Not to sound racist or predjudice, because i surely am not.... But the v.7 was lookin pretty good until i saw that they were made in china. I understand that the cabinets and drivers are manufactured by paradigm, but still, i cant get over the fact that they moved final assembly to china. I just prefer American/canadian speakers. I think I'll stick with my v.6 (made in canada)

Have been planning on the Monitor 11's for a while now and expect to get some good pricing now that the Series 7's are out. Couple of questions though, what would you consider to be a good A/V receiver in the $1000 range. Been looking at Anthem, Denon and Onkyo. Usage is 60% music / 40% movies. Sound quality is most important and I often like to listen to my music loud... no, I should say, real loud!
