Hey guys im new to Home Theater Forum but not so new when it comes to audio. I would like to complete my 7.1 system. So far I have the Denon AVR1804 av reciever, Paradigm Legend V.3 fronts and Paradigm Focus rears and/or surrounds. Im not sure if I should stick with Paradigm Performance series to conclude my system based upon reviews I have read on the sub(pdr10/12). I have yet to read a review on the center, but I have read good things on the adp270 dipolar speakers. My question is, should I stick with Paradigm or seek help and advice from fellow audio enthusiasts? I choose to ask for help.

You should stick with the Paradigms for speakers, to achieve tonal balance, but feel free to explore other options on subs (many here will steer you to SVS or HSU).

Just my opinion, of course.

Just finished a speaker search myself. Happy hunting.Posted Image

Don't do the PDR sub line from Paradigm get a Hsu or SVS. For the rest of your speakers the matching Paradigms would be the best choice.
