    Hi,
    I am looking for main speakers for my living room.
    My room size is 8(H)X15(W)X12(L).
    My receiver is Harman/Kardon AVR520.
    My sub is polk audio PSW350.
    My center & surround are polk entry models.

    I use 70% music & 30% home theater.
    I want to choose between polk audio lxi9 (msrp$899) for $615 plus S/H from the internet and paradigm monitor 5 v3 for $550 plus 8.25% tax (~$594 total) from a local dealer.

    They are similar in size and design.

    The price difference is acceptable but I can own one pairs only.

    I audit B&W 602 S3 but it's not magnetic shielded and I am not impressed by the sound.

    Any suggestion for the choice?

    Yung,
    I would have to vote for the Lsi-9's. The sound from these is exceptional!

    I went to a "Demo Night" yesterday at a local A/V shop and had a chance to meet Matt Polk and a few others from Polk Audio. Even though I already own a room full of Lsi's it was nice to be able to go and listen to a true expert explain the reasoning behind the design features of the new LSI line up. I came away with a better understanding of just how much thought went into the Lsi series.
