After having the heat fail in my appartment I decided to poke arround and look at AV equipment for a while while I waited for the temp to rise above 50 in my living room. I didn't bring any CDs or DVDs with me, just a quick tour around Best Buy and then back home. Well, you guessed it, I ended up in a demo room at New England Hi-Fi demoing Paradigm speakers. I listed to Monitor 20 and 40s as well as reference studio 20s and 40s. I think overall I liked the Studio 20s the best. Excellent sound stage, very clean sounding mids and highs, very respectable bass. Since now at this point I've already listened to a bunch of speakers with music I don't love and A movie I can't stand I decided to compound my bad habbits and drive 30 minutes to a different store and different listening conditions and audition a bunch of B&W 600 series speakers. The various 600s sounded very good, but I thought they were a bit behind the studio 20s in the highs. I'm strongly leaning towards these speakers, I might also audition Energy C-3s. The only real question mark in my mind are those Rocket RS 250s. I've heard a lot of comparisions between the 750s and other speakers, but has anyone ever done a head to head between the 20s and Rocket 250s? I haven't found one yet.
