I posted on here a few days ago of my desire to upgrade my speakers for my home theatre. Based on various and sundry opinions I found around the 'net...I was quite optimistic on Paradigm Phantoms for my main speakers. I auditioned them today...against Klipsch RF-15's they had at the shop. I felt that the Paradigm's had it over Klipsch in terms of high end response...more crisp and clear. However, the Klipsch absolutely dominated when it came to midrange and bass response...especially midrange. The high end response of the Klipsch was good enough...though...like I said...not at good as the paradigm. Therefore, Klipsch was the clear winner. However, bass response is not a factor as I will be, in all likelihood, upgrading to a SVS 25-31+ sub, from a Audiosource SW10. I also spoke with a rep at SVS today to get his opinons, given my situation, on the 20-39PCI vs. the 25-31+. His overall opinion was that I should probably go with the 25-31+. If I had not read about the reputation of SVS and their objetivity in recommendations...I would have been suspect given the higher cost as he leaned towards the 25-31+ I also grilled him about main speakers and my findings today...he said he likes Klipsch...but give Axiom a look...he was a fan of Axiom. I had heard of Axiom in the past and their excellent reputation. Browsing their website it came down to the M40TI floorstanding or the M22TI. I called for a recommendation from the rep. at Axiom and explained my findings and intentions on subs. and the Klipsch today. His opinion was that the M22TI was the way to go. He felt that it brings out the best of the Paradigm in terms of high end performance as well as the midrange of the Klipsch, though the M22TI does well in the bass dept. as well. Bass is not such an isssue considering the sub. I intend to buy. I KNOW this is from a rep. from the company...but...given the excellent reputation I have discovered about Axiom...I give the Axiom reps opinion a good deal of respect. He was familiar with SVS and had a bias towards the SVS subwoofers as well in terms of performance...he just didnt like their size. SO! Whaddya think of my findings? I liked the Klipsch....but do I go with the Axiom? A lot of reviews found at audioreview.com back up the claims of strong mid and high range performance...which is what I feel i need. If I go with the axiom...which is where I am leaning...i'd go with the VP150 center speaker. If you guys convince me on the Klipsch, I would go with the RC35 center. I just get a bit uneasy about not being able to listen to the Axioms ahead of time....though I know I can always return them. All comments and further suggestions are welcome and highly encouraged. Whaddya think?
