    Here's my problem. I am looking to replace my existing 5.1 set-up which currently consists of Infinity Reference 6s, RS Center, & 2000.1s and an older Yamaha DD Receiver(595 I believe). I have narrowed my receiver decision down to:
    • Denon 3802(3 if available)
    • Integra 7.1
    • possibly Sherwood Newcastle 956
    The receiver is the lessor of my worries, but it's the speakers for which I am torn. Speakers options consist of:
    • PSB Image 6Ts, 9c, & 2Bs
    • Paradigm Studio 60s(or 40s),Studio CC, and 20s
    • Diva 4.1s, C3, and 2.1s
    Unfortunately, I have only had the opportunity to demo the Paradigms, but will have a chance to listen to the PSBs in 2 weeks in Boston. The Divas(IMO) look better, but I do not have the chance to demo them since there are no registered(on audioenvy.com) Diva owners in Vermont. It would be tough to shell out the $$ w/o even hearing them. All set-ups will be in the same general price range b/c I only live 2 hours from Montreal and can get either the PSB or Paradigm set-ups much cheaper there. I am getting antsy, and would love to make the change soon. What the heck should I do?

    Just to add another question. Are there any Diva owners up here in VT? I would love to audition the Divas, but would rather not drive 3 hours to hear them. Help, please!

    Are you close enough to the border of any of the surrounding states to be within driving distance?

    I am in Montpelier which is more toward the NH side of VT if that helps.
