    Anyone hear this center yet? I just ordered it, I know I should have heard it first but it is my understanding they will sound a little better than the 170 yet not as good as the 370.

    I am wondering now, if I should have went with the 370 instead?

    Here is what I am expecting to have now

    Paradigm Monitor 7

    Paradigm Titans for rears

    Paradigm cc270

    Onkyo595

    I haven't decided on the sub yet. I don't know whether to get the PDR 10 or 12 or jump to the PS1000. The PS1000 may be a bit much for my setup and room. I just don't want to get the PDR series and find out I have to max it out to hear decent bass either.

    Any advice is most appreciated

    I know that the CC-370 will be a perfect match for the Monitor 7's, with same woofers and tweeters. I am not sure about the cc-270. The CC-370 will probably give you a better sound field across the front.

    If I were you I would go with the cc-370. I really like mine, though I am about to upgrade to all Studio series speakers. I really found the cc-170 to be boxey sounding. The cc-370 sounds just right with the monitor series speakers. As such, I have to believe I would be underwhelmed with the 270's performance. Keep in mind, the cc-370 is the matching center for the monitor series. Finally, in my mind, from a HT standpoint, there are two things you shouldn't skimp on : 1. The Subwoofer and 2. the Center Channel.

    Best of luck!

    Hmm maybe I should just not be so cheap and go for the CC370 then. It is another 100 more.

    The CC-270 is not matched to the Monitor Series in Paradigm's line.

    The CC-270 is a brand new model in the _Performance_ Series, which is Paradigm's entry level series. The CC-370 is the only CC that is matched to the Monitor Series.

    The CC-270 uses brand new technology from Paradigm, seen only in their newly redesigned Phantom and Legend speakers.

    Can you expand on the brand new technology?
