I'm on a mission to find "the best" set of speakers for $1400, maybe $1500. By "the best," I'm not quite sure what I mean. I like warmer, richer-sounding speakers...I recently auditioned some Paradigm Monitor 7's and 3's and liked the color and the laid-back-ness of the sound. The Studio 60's also sounded great, but are out of my price range. I'd be buying 2 floorstanders as the mains, 2 bookshelves for the surrounds, and whatever the corresponding center channel is. I think I'll hold off on a sub for the time being, but my intention is to get a Hsu or an SVS eventually. Anyhow, I've been reading threads here on HTF about Wharfedales, mostly the Diamond series, and they sound like they could be just what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, I do not have any local places that carry Wharfedales, so auditioning them is kinda hard at the moment. How do the pacific's compare to the diamonds? In what aspects are they better/the same/worse? Also, if anybody can compare and contrast them to how the Paradigm's sound, it'd give me something more solid to go off of.
