On order Paradigm Monitor 7 mains & CC -190 center.
Still need to get the rears for 5.1 sound. ? Do I get the ADP-190 or 390 to go with this system. The ADP-390 are big bucks that i would rather not spend. ( will use my old Infinity infadecables for now)
for now)
I wanted to stick with a good speaker NOT made in China!!
Paradigm's are Canada made. ? Any good.
Power by a Onkyo TXSR606 and a Panny DMPBD35K blu ray

Paradigms are awesome speakers. I have the Studio 60s, 20s, CC-590 and the Seismic 12 for my 5.1 setup.:):thumbsup:

The Paradigm Atoms might be a good fit for rear surrounds.

Though it would kinda be a shame for such fine little speakers to be relegated to ambient effects duty.

I also reccomend atoms as surround. For $300 you will have a great set of fully functional surrounds. I use them as surrounds x 4 in my HT setup w/ Titan Monitors and the cc-190. (and a txsr606) - FANTASTIC enjoy!

Paradigm makes awesome speakers. I to would recommend the Atoms for surround and wonder why you didn't get the CC-290 for the center. The difference is astounding and the 290 is a much better match to the Monitor 7's.

I came close to getting some Pardigm's myself but budget requirements kept me away. They are, indeed, AWESOME speakers. I love my Aperions, don't get me wrong, but I would have really liked to have been able to afford the Paradigms!!

They should be in today And I did up grade to the cc-290
I called Paradigm and they said the ADP -190 would be a better match then the Atoms or titans. ???? ( for the rears)

Of course they would recommend those because they are diffuse speakers, bi-pole or di-pole but if you place your speakers correctly as discussed in the speaker placement guide in this forum the Atoms would work exceptionally well.
