Will Cinema ADPs work with my Paradigm Monitor speakers?

    I am putting together the following HT setup (90% movie watching)

    My room is 13x23x8.5 (shoe box)

    Front: Paradigm Mini-Monitor
    Center: Paradigm CC370
    Sub: SVS PB-12

    Surrounds: Either Cinema ADP or a pair of Atoms. Both are $200.

    For buget reasons I have to cut something so the surrounds will be it. I would get the ADP-170s but they run $480 and that kills my sub budget.

    Question 1: Has anyone used the Cinema ADPs? like/dislike, One Paradigm dealer told me that it wasnt a good idea to match the Cinema ADP with the Monitor speakers. The other Paradigm dealer told me that it was ok to do that since the new Cinema ADP actually have the monitor based drivers.



    Queston 2: The atom is a bookshelf speaker and I was curious how they sound for surrounds compared to a Dipolar (ie Cinema ADP)

    thanks

    I would go with the atoms over the cinema.

    they will work but they wont match.

    I would think the ADP's should be fine, and the ones I would go with for HT. I would say based on the diffuse sound of a dipole, they would blend in more and not distinguish themselves against the Mini's.
