You know, before I ordered my Maggie MMGs in order to take advantage of their in-home trial, I was told several times that if I was primarily an HT guy that I'd be better off sticking with Paradigms. Even my local sales guy (who deals with both brands) said this. Well, I've put over 100 hours on these MMGs since I picked them up a month or so ago, and I have to say that for HT Maggies RULE. I don't know what other people are listening to in order to say this about them. Maybe being an HT guy indicates that I want speakers that just sound good with explosions and special effects.....but that's really not what I like about movies. With that said, however, even with movies that have lots of special effects (e.g. I just watched 'The Day After Tomorrow' prior to posting this) the Maggies are KILLER. When i watch a film I want crystal clear, intelligible, life-like dialogue......I want to be immersed in the soundtrack.....and I want an nice, coherent soundfield. To my ears, the Maggies are not just acceptable in the HT department, I actually prefer them over the Paradigm studios I replaced them with. Last night I put in 'Cast Away' and cranked it up.....I am pretty familiar with this film and the audio track, and the MMGs brought out details that I'd never heard before......it was truly something! Anyway, I was almost deterred from even giving the Maggies a chance because of what I was being told about them and their HT abilities......don't believe it! The sound from these speakers is satisfying in a way that no box speaker has ever been able to do for me.
