    Alright, any thoughts on this little comparison?

    JBL N26
    vs.
    Athena AS-B1
    vs.
    Paradigm Atoms
    vs.
    Anything else in a similar pricerange

    I've previewed the Athenas and JBLs and I think I like the Athenas a little more. I'm going to try and hunt down a Paradigm dealer over the weekend. Any other suggestions or thoughts between those? I'm going to be pairing them with either a Pioneer 812 or 912 and a sony WM500 sub (the new version of the one everyone kept raving about). The key thing is I want them to sound good for music as well as gaming and movies.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well, you've picked some popular contenders that's for sure. It's good that you're going to audition them, so really, I can't recommend anything else. What you choose is your own flavor, and as long as you listen carefully, you should end up with a great setup, IMO.
