I took a couple of hours this evening and headed down to my local Paradigm dealer to audition some speakers. After listening to several discs on several offerings from B&W, Paradigm and Mirage, I settle on this system: Paradigm Mini Monitors - Front CC370 - Centre Performance Atoms - Rears and a Mirage LF100 8" Sub Price: $1300 + the taxes. Has anyone combined these with a HK525? A musical AVR + Musical speakers = great music and pretty kick ass HT in my book, but I'm looking for other opinions. I also have a question about an 8" sub. It's a compromise between music and movies. I listened to some Paradigm 10 and 12" subs, but they were just WAY too boomy during some Squirrel Nut Zippers tunes (and they're mostly strings and horns). Does anyone have any experience using an 8" sub on the LFE channel? What's the general opinion here? Thanks! Aaron.
