I'm making some progress. I think I have narrowed my search for an HT system (50% music, 50% HT) to B&W, Boston or Paradigm. I've listened to each speaker and they all sound good to me. Unfortunately, my auditioning has not been back-to-back and my acoustic memory seems to be lacking. For now, i'm just concentrating on the front and surround speakers. In addition to the center channel speaker, i'll probably get a subwoofer with each system. The rear surround speakers will be wall mounted about 4' behind the listening area on the side walls. The room is approx 20x20. For B&W, i'm thinking 604S3's as fronts with DM601S3 or DM602S3 as rears. For Boston, i'm thinking VR950 for fronts and Micro 100x as rears (the salesman recommended the Micro 100x). For Paradigm, Studio 60 for fronts and Studio 20 for rears. Has anyone compared these speakers back-to-back? I would appreciate any input that would help me make my decision.
