    I'm pretty much new to the whole home theater scene but i'm interested in a HT setup that is around $1500 US. So i've been calling the local audio shops about what is exactly different about the v2's and v3's. I've gotten answers ranging from "tweeters had a minor adjustment" to "changes have been all just cosmetic".

    Can somebody shed some light into this??? I'm considering getting atoms for my front and rear, but if i could push the budget, i'll go for the mini-monitors.

    Hm. I didn't know about that. Thanks for the heads-up. How long ago was it that they upped from V1 to V2? I think it was just a year ago, wasn't it?

    far from microsoft...

    they're only charging $10 canadian dollars more for the new version 3, and if there isn't any compelling difference between the v2's and v3's, i'd go for the v2's since they're now on sale, about $20-30 bucks cheaper.

    well anyway here's a roundup of the information that i've gotten so far :

    Brack (local retailer) = The phantoms and and the legends are the only ones that are getting any worthwhile overhauls. The micros, atoms, and titans just got a minor cosmetic change.

    Hifi 2000 = Tweeters for the performance series will be enhance, but don't expect any significant changes in terms of sound quality.

    Kromer Radio = New design of paradigm logo, purely cosmetic

    Page 82 of the new Sound & Vision has a pic of the new Legend. They look different. . . . well, I can't be sure of that since the old ones couldn't take the grills off. . .

    But at least that's a difference. . . .
