    Paradigms definately. DefTechs are great for movies b/c they're better at 'scattering' the sound, which makes for a better movie experience. the Paradigms are much more musical than either of the other two...listen and you'll know what i mean.

    It really depends on what kind of presentation you prefer.

    Generally speaking the Yamaha receiver is going to be a bit more foward, so for my tastes one of the Def Techs, a more laid back speaker than the Paradigms, would be to my liking.

    Of course, demoing each of them with that receiver or one similar and deciding which kind of presentation you prefer would be a good way to go.

    Alot will depend on the room too and where you can place the speakers. One nice thing about bipolars is their wide soundstage. If they can be placed out into the room a bit more, away from the back wall, you will get the greatest benefit with the 2006s. If that is not an option then maybe the Pro Towers would be better.

    And that is only the tip of the iceberg--lots of things to consider. Good luck.

    I have Def Techs, and I would choose the Paradigm's *with* an external sub.

    Or, forget about what you have there, and go for the Def Tech BP-30's *with* an external sub.
