I've been looking at speakers for several months now and have all but decided on Paradigm Studio v3's. So, I'm talking to my brother-in-law who is a recording engineer and he is saying that I'm wasting my money and should just buy some Genelec reference monitors and a decent sub. I don't for a minute believe that all of you would have missed something like this because they are far cheaper than the paradigms. He is saying that ultimately flat response is flat response, which I have seen argued here to some extent. I have not noticed anywhere here where recording studio type monitors have been used for home HT or Music listening though. Any comments are appreciated.
