    I'm hoping to buy some main floorstanding speakers soon. I'm on a strict budget. I can not go over $650 for the pair. I have a small list that i'm currently looking at and am looking for other suggestions. Which of the following would be the best choice? I'm going to be using them mainly for home theater and some music; its about a 70-30 split. I also listed the best prices I can currently find for the pair.

    JBL S312 - $500

    Home Theater Direct Level 3 - $429

    Axiom M50Ti - $620

    Paradigm Monitor 7 - $550

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the HTF David!

    Boy those are all good speakers!

    Have you auditioned them yet? If so what are your thoughts?

    My thoughts are that they all have a great reputation and all sound good, maybe you can provide us with your equipment list and we can give you suggestions on matching them up.

    I've heard the JBL's and they do sound nice, however, i'm going to be listening to some Monitor 7's very soon and from what i've been reading they should sound a bit better. We'll see. As for the rest I really don't know how they stack up against those two. I'm looking for some opinions on any of these speakers versus another. Anyone?

    I have owned Paradigm Monitor 7's for three years and really like their sound. I didn't compare them to the speakers you have mentioned, so cannot comment. I really liked the 7's from the first moment I auditioned them.

    Good luck and happy shopping.
