Yesterday I just picked up the final pair of speakers to complete the "7" of my future 7.1 system. After a lot of auditioning I went with the Paradigm Monitor 11's as my mains to complement my Paradigm CC-370 and 4 Paradigm Mini Monitors. I choose the Monitor 11's for a couple reasons. First off they sounded better than the Monitor 7's and 9's to me. The 11's had more of fuller sound to me, so I went with them. Also I don't like to run a sub while listening to music, so I thought this was the best option for me. I really liked the Studio 100's but I would have had to upgrade to something better and more expensive than the receiver I have to get the wattage to power those monsters. The store I go to gives you a year to trade in your speakers and they allow you to put that money towards a new set of speakers. So in theory I can always upgrade. Now all I need is a couple of new subs and a new receiver and I'll be good to go! I'm going to spend most of the day trying the break this bad boys in. I also bought a 6 shelf rack from Plateau for my components, no more stacking! Thanks for everybody's advice!
