    Is the latest Anthem digital processor and MCA amp overkill for these speakers? I'm upgrading from a Onkyo Integra DTR-7

    Kevin,

    I work part time at a high-end home theater shop on the weekends. We carry the Paradigm Studio Series. In onr of our rooms that is about 12x16, we have the entire Studio line paired with a Pioneer Elite receiver. We should have the new 59 in soon. Suffice it to say, they are a good match. For those who do not like to deal with calibration disks and DB meters, the elite line comes with a set-up mic that simplifies this process greatly.

    I am sure there are plenty of receivers that will sound great with your speakers. I think the thing to do is talk to a few shops that will let you do an in-home demo of their product(s). That is the only way to really determine if you like the way it all sounds together.......
