If I am going to get Paradigm speakers, I am currently choosing between Monitor 5 and Monitor 7 speakers as mains. My local HT Paradigm dealer gave me prices on the 5's and the 7's and claimed that the 7's are a better way to go because the stands for the 5's will make them cost the same as the 7's. My problem is this: The 5's are good down to 55Hz (around) whereas the 7's are good to 45Hz (around). The only center that is suitable to match these sets is the CC-370 which uses the same setup as the 5's (ie: down to about 55Hz). My local dealer wasn't able to compare the CC-370 to EITHER main, but I heard the mains side by side crossed over at 60Hz (so they would be on a level playing field) and they don't sound the same. So, in my eyes (ears, whatever) the monitor 5's and 7's aren't timbre matched as Paradigm claims. The only explanation might be that one set was broken in and the otherwas not but I would like a second opinion. I am antsy mainly due to the fact that almost every system that I have heard where the mains didn't match the center (as in, driver wise) there was a definite audible anomaly when listening to anything where the image moves from side to side (car, train, concerts).
