I bought Yamaha RXV3300 recently. (Most you know where I got this, yes, it was Good-Guys! ) Now, my biggest problem/confusion is what kind of speakers are best for me or for my RXV3300 receiver. I tried Energy Encore and JBL (Studio S36) with Yamaha HTR5660, Harman/Kardon and Marantz. And found that JBL sounds better than Energy. Before I continue any further, I just would like to let you all know that I never owned a hometheater system and do not also have indepth knowledge of it. I recently went and listened to Paradigm speakers. I listened to Paradigm Mini Monitor and Studio 20 at the store. I found Studio 20 sounds a little better or brighter (crisper sound) than Mini Monitor (they both were played w/ Pioneer Elite). But the Studio 20s ($800 a pair) are a bit costlier than Mini Monitors ($360 a pair). If I am really serious and get down to the bargaining, I might get an 8 to 14% discount on both or either of these speaker sets. Do you think Mini Monitor would also sound better/brighter (crisper) with my Yamaha RXV3300? I real would like to see some audiophiles comment on this or suggest me what is best for me. Any kind of help is appreciated. One last thing, I didn't like Klipsh speakers.
