I'm thinking about ditching my Paradigm Studio 80s and trying some B&Ws. I haven't had the chance to extensively audition any B&Ws although I've listened to some briefly, so I'm trying to get a feel from fellow HTFers about this. "Sound preference is subjective", "listen for yourself"... yes, I know these things Just trying to see what y'all have to say for now; that's all. If I offload my Paradigm Studio 80s I'd be in the market for some new floorstanding speakers from B&W. The ones in my price range are DM604 S3, CM 4, CDM 7NT, and one that would stretch my wallet to the limit is the CDM 9NT. What are your opinions on this? Would it be more of a lateral move than an upgrade going to the DM604 S3/CM 4 since the MSRP of these and the Studio 80s are roughly the same, or would it even be a downgrade? How about moving "up" to a CDM 7NT or CDM 9NT? It the tonal quality really that much different, and if it is different is it better?
