I currently have Paradigm Monitor 7's, no center, no surrounds, no subwoofer. The dealer that I bought them from offers "free" trade-up, where I get full retail value of my speakers when buying a new set, within 1 year of original purchase (150% minimum trade-up, though). I started with Monitor 3's two years ago and then went to the 7's. My question is: what do I upgrade at this point? My tax refund is coming and I still have time to trade-in the 7's... As I see it: Option A - Keep the 7's, buy surrounds (ADP-370) Option B - Keep the 7's, buy a subwoofer (another question arises then, which to buy?) Option C - Trade-in the 7's, get 9's and surrounds (dealer doesn't like this option, but I can talk him into it) Option D - Trade-in the 7's, get 11's (dealers "best bet") If I don't buy Paradigm surrounds I have a pair of cheap speakers that I can use for surrounds, as I have in the past. Not a good solution, but it is better than no surrounds at all. At best a temporary fix. One reason I don't have a center channel and don't intend on getting one is that my receiver (Yamaha 495) doesn't have good posts (its got the old spring clip style) for the center channel or surrounds, whereas the L and R posts accept Bananas/etc... It seems to me that the center channel is going to be at a disadvantage from the start. Thanks for the input!
