I mean if you think about some of the revolutionary speakers like the M1, M3, omni series... the bargin frx series etc... they offered quite good products at very good prices. Also can be said about En...

dumb question guys... so, as "speaker cables" do matter with the exception of the runs to the subwoofer (from what I've been told) I connect both my speakers and the subwoofer to the binding posts on the amp... is that a problem? my speakers don't seem affected, the sonic charastics haven'...

I've always found paradigm's, specifically the studios, to sound very "detailed" but on the bright/sibilent side of neutral however, they are very revelaing and expose your equipment... I've heard Studio 40's V3's off a rega p5 setup with a NAIM setup and it was smooth as silk with a Morda...

HSU's responce was... buy the VTF-15h of course
