    We've (Dad and I) finally figured out which way to go with his basement speakers. We've been slowly putting together a system "down at the bar" and were having trouble trying to figure out which speakers to purchase.

    We've decided on the Paradigm Atom speakers. We'll add a subwoofer later, but we think the Atom's will work out fine.....they are small and have received good reviews. They've got to sound better than the cheapo Realistic speakers from his 8 track player!!

    Anyway, where is a good place to purchase these speakers? How much should they cost?

    Thanks for all the help on this forum.....it's helped us out a lot.

    I don't know where you live in Michigan. If you can get over to Windsor, Canada then a great place to buy Paradigm speakers is Live Wire Audio in Windsor.
    There website is www.livewireaudio.com . I have dealt with Bob and he will tell you everything you need to know in regards to getting the Candian tax refunded.

    Definitely get to Canada if you can. I bought 4 Atoms, a CC170 center, and a PDR-10 sub for $995+Tax Canadian from Fairview Hifi in Burlington (near Hamilton). All of the tax is also refundable through Canadian customs. It would have cost me about $800-$850US plus tax for this setup. I probably saved about $300US by taking the 1 hour trip.

    I believe retail for the Atoms is $239-$249/per pair, however, you may want to check out the Titans if you aren't going to be using a sub for a while. While the Atoms are more accurate than the Titan, I felt that the Titans performed better without a sub. I always listen to mine with the sub.

    You will love either one you choose.
