After all the helpful advice on setting up a family room 7.1 speaker system, I've decided to go with the Paradigm Reference (Studio) Series. I went to an authorized Paradigm dealer - who basically gave me the list price, then took off a percentage (I am purchasing a center, 2 bookshelf (40's) and 4 surrounds from him). Wasn't overly impressed by the discount considering the purchase. Anyone have any useful information in purchasing Paradigm speakers. I understand that purchasing online is basically not an option (voids warranty, possible grey market items, etc). Just looking for advice before giving in to the local dealer. Thanks.
