Well, as the post cites, where will you go next? Studion Ref. v.3? Paradigm Signature 8? Some other brand? here's my deal... My room is dedicated to HT, with 85% HT and 15% critical 2 channel listening. I've enjoyed owning my Studio 100's (v.2) for a while now, but believe that improvements I've made upstream would be better realized if I upgraded my mains (and associated other HT speakers). Specifically, I think better/clearer mids and highs can be had with better detail resolution and soundstaging with my stuff (Anthem AVM-20 pre/pro, Parasound 250w x 2 and 220 x 5 amps). Options... 1. Upgrade to v.3 100's. I'm told this brings better mids/highs. Advantages: I could keep my current Studio ADPs for surrounds. I could upgrade to the CC-570 (I have studio CC) and improve the whole front soundstage. Negatives: Much fuss for a small increment of improvement (IMO) 2. Upgrade to Signature 8's. Advantages: Sound great, leapfrog v.3 100's. Negatives: Big cash, would have to replace other Paradigm speakers in my 7.1 rig. 3. Change brands for whole system. I'm seriously considering B&W Nautilus 804's as the beginning of a total re-do. Advantages: Delivers the sonic presence, separation and mids I'm craving for less cash than Paradigm Sigs. Negatives: Total 7.1 Do-over with $$$ involved. I could sell off my whole system to help fund, but a real production to get done. Would probably have to move back to 5.1 for a while to afford the cost. What are other Studio 100 owners thinking these days? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
