    I have a pair of Paradigm Studio 20s as my mains with the Studio CC Center. After living with them for a month, it seems to me that the CC Center is not as clear and detailed as the 20s are. I am seriously considering getting another Studio 20 (shielded) to use as my center. Is there any sonic problems with laying the 20 on its side on top of the TV? Maybe dispersion troubles? Any comments would be appricated.
    Regards, Nick

    None of Paradigm's bookshelf speakers are designed to lay on their side. Dispersion will be affected, as they were designed to image while placed vertically. Since you already have 20s, your best bet would be to stick one up there (with some type of shielding between it and the TV) and see how it does.
