    Anyone have any reviews comparing any Definitive Technologies speakers with Paradigms? I'm trying to get an idea of the BP8's Vs. the Monitor Series.

    I think if you mostly are going to use these for movies then I would pick the Def Techs. I have never listened to Paradigms but a they get good reviews. I have a pair of Def Techs with the built-in subs and feel for movies nothing beats them but I dont listen to much music at all. If music is your thing I would audition the Paradims first and then compare them to the Def Techs. If you can find a place that carrys both try to do a side by side comparison.

    No one around here carries both. Paradigms are only available at one store within about 200 miles.

    On another note, I do watch mostly Movies, but want them to be music Capable as well. I'll be mating them up with a SVS PB2-Plus so, I'll be getting the Def Techs with the unpowered subs if I do that.

    I love DefTechs for movies, but Paradigm are also outstanding speakers.

    Here is my advice:

    - Look at how you can place speakers in your room. The DefTechs will shine if you can pull them into the room about ... 3 feet. This allows the bipolar nature of the speakers to work it's magic. If you can tollerate this placement, go for the DefTechs.

    - If you have to position your speakers 1-2 feet from a rear wall, give the Paradigm speakers the nod. They wont be 'crippled' as much by this placement.

    You have a "Coke vs Pepsi" decision with these two. I will perfer one, someone else will perfer the other and both of us will be right. It's a matter of taste and we cannot tell you which will taste better to you.
