Try to get 5 of the same speakers of whatever brand you like, it really makes a difference

Listen to both (if you can find some Swans to listen to) and decide which ones you like better. If you decide to go with Paradigms, I suggest giving a listen to the Studio's, they are tremendously clear and detailed. How come you don't have Martin Logans listed there and how come you want to move out of the Bostons? Posted Image My personal opinion is that the VR-3's are a MUCH better deal than either the Studio 60's or 100's (and I'm currently a Paradigm man). Can you trade up those Bostons at your local B&M?

Can I ask what you don't like about your current speakers? Always curious here....

Mark, Mark, Mark, Mark, Mark........That dissapointed me man. (I am a big Boston fan Posted Image) Please do tell why you want to switch. I had Boston vr965 and they did gey a bit muddy with the lows. I recently traded them up to the vr3's....awsome speaker with nice tight bass. I think my home theater sounds much better now that I have unpowered towers and the LFE relegated to a sub. Paradigm makes great speakers as well but to get into the eqivelent to those Bostons you will need to get into the Studio line. Cabreau and I listened extensively to those models and they are some sweet speakers.
