I am retired, on a fixed income, and am looking to upgrade my home theater setup for what will probably be the last time. I don't listen to music at home, so the setup will be for 100 percent movies (437 DVD library) - 0 percent music. My current setup features: 5 Energy Take 5 speakers Twin 10" Energy subwoofers (love LFE) (Sony STR-DE830 A/V Receiver) After six months or more of internet research, looking for best quality/value/DEPENDABILITY in the price range I can afford, and some limited auditions, I have pretty much settled on the following 5.1 setup: Paradigm Mini Monitors (front)* Paradigm cc-370 (center)* Paradigm adp-370's (surround)* SVS PB12-NSD/2 Sub (Yamaha RX-V559 A/V Receiver) There are a lot of more expensive speakers - I can't afford them! There are many competitive speakers - I have to go with the best reputation I can find. Instead of telling me what might be (or might not be) better, how about some advice from you guys who actually have some experience with any of the items I've settled on... even opinions, if you can justify them! Good/bad or whatever. Anything there that I may be making a major mistake on? I've read comments that indicate that Paradigm Monitors sound 'flat' and 'laid-back'. Can anyone explain that to me? I've heard the Mini Monitors, and I don't know what they're talking about. Is it real, or is it audiophile-snobbery-talk? Please excuse my long-windedness... Pete * Someone mentioned Paradigm price increases. My understanding for the speakers as listed is $429 US/$399 US/$749 US. Anyone know of MSRP increases beyond that?
