Hey guys, I'm getting the upgrade itch again. Here's my system right now: Paradigm CC270 v3, Mini-Monitors v4 for L/R and Esprits v3 for surrounds. For the sub I have a Paradigm PS1200 v4. Receiver is the Pioneer 1014TX. I've been thinking about upgrading to a CC370 with Monitor 7s up front and moving the Mini Monitors to the rear. Then I'll have a perfectly matched system that should be pretty satisfying for movies and music. However, is this worth doing? I've been told that the entire monitor line sounds more or less the same, the difference being the bass and more SPL. But I already have plenty of bass from the PS1200 so this doesn't seem necessary. I guess for movies I would get more excitment, more effortless room-filling sound, but for music I'm not sure if I would notice much difference. Would I? For a bit more, I can move up to Studio 20s for L/R and this seems like a better long term plan. Maybe I'll play with the 7s for a year and want to upgrade again and I'll end up wasting more money. But then I'll need to get the matching CC470 center and possibly for later, another pair of 20s for surrounds. This sounds expensive and I'll be in system limbo again for a while, where as with the Monitor 7s and 370 I'll feel 'complete' and there is a certain feel-good in that. So my question for those who are familiar with the Paradigm line is this: do the Studio 20s sound significatnly better than the Monitor line? I'm very happy with my mini-monitors for music, but I have never really played with anything higher end. Is it just a subtle improvement or is it an obvious improvement? What about my receiver? The Paradigm site says the Studio 20s are identically efficient as the Mini Monitors but they are a better, bigger speaker and I wonder if my Pioneer 1014TX is good enough for a switch to a Studio line system. Is it? My room is 15x15 (that opens to another room in the rear and has high ceilings) and I do about 70% movies, 30% music but I get more pleasure out of music than movies, so that's important. But only if it makes enough of a difference. Otherwise, I might have lots of fun with the big efficient Monitor 7s to belt out the action soundtracks. Please give input! Keep in mind the money. If I went Monitor 7s with CC370, I am done. If I did Studio 20s, I'd have to get matching center later, then the surrounds as well. But I could always just use the Mini Monitors as surrounds.
