    I just purchased a new HT system and I would like to know your opinion on my purchase. I have a new KDS-R60XBR1 Sony TV

    Surround sound components

    Paradigm 11's Fronts
    Paradigm CC370's Center
    Paradigm Monitor 7's Rears
    Paradigm Subwoofer PDR12

    Receiver Yamaha HTR 5860

    I didn't receive them yet so I can't say how it all sounds.

    I am new at this so please be nice.

    Also please let me know what you think I should have paid for this set-up

    Thanks Guys

    I had that exact 5.0 setup as far as speakers go. IMO, I think you should of went with an internet brand sub(SVS,Hsu), since most give you more performance for your money. Also, I eventually sold off the 7's for some ADP-370's after I found the 7's too distracting being only 4 ft. from my seating position. The dipole speaker(ADP's) really spread out the sound for the better for HT. If you have some distance to place the 7's far away enough from the seating they'll be great. In addition, you might need some small stands to raise the 7's up as well to at least match the height of the 11's if not a little higher as surrounds. And as far as price, you should have haggled for at least 10% off retail buying all those speakers. Oh, and get an SPL meter now to calibrate everything. Those are nitpicks, you'll be pleased I'm sure. Enjoy!
