I love this site. I have connected now w/ my inner nerd. I am almost positive I'm going to run across the border and get some active 20's and maybe an Active CC. I'll probably get a powered sub HSU, PW2200, or an SVS. I have some questions for you HT gurus b/c I'm in college and can't waste this type of money unless it's a longterm investment. BTW the reason the Actives kicked the crap out of the regular reference line was b/c they were so smooth and easy on the ears. The reference 20's were shrill on the highs and I would not have noticed this w/o listening to the actives. I mean I don't honestly think I can matchup equipment better then Paradigm for their own speaker. 1. Paradigm is coming out w/ V3 for the performance line. Does anyone know when they will do this for the reference and active line? 2. Does anyone have any reasons why I should get the Active 40's over the Active 20's if I intend to use a sub for the lowend? Is there any flaw in using a sub for music too? 3. What should be the main factor in a receiver w/ these types of speakers? I'm going cheap on the receiver. I have friends at Sears and Circuit City and will get 1/2 off at each. Spare me the ethics part please. I'll probably get my tv and dvd player through them too. I'm clearly going for the biggest bang for my buck w/o having to steal them. 4. What other speakers should I be looking at in this price range sub 1000? I know about Diva and Norh, but can't audition them and I don't intend to waste money on shipping BOTH ways. 5. Can someone give me the current list prices at Canada for the active and Reference line? Thanks a lot everybody, I have been overflowing w/ these questions for a while. I'm trying to get 2 friends of mine hooked on the Paradigm line, So I can take them w/ me and maybe we'll get a better deal. Next step will be to contact some of those dealers.
