I wish I agreed... :P

I foolishly listened to the Paradigm Studio 100's (rrp $4.7k) once I'd put together my budget for the 60's (rrp $3.2k). I was curious as to what the extra $$$ got you. (Un)fortunately the difference was night and day.
I found the extra $$$... :D


Gee thanks !! :blink:

I was thinking of the 60's for my next upgrade.... :P

I have not been able to find that much of a difference once you get over about $500 for a pair.

This is a stir right?!

You have got to be kidding.

Was that the response you were trolling for.

Don't get me wrong though, the 60's kicked some serious arse. So detailed and clean. The 100's just had a very noticeable increase in the amount of meat on the bones, if you know what I mean.

all IMHO



I don't necessarily agree with it but I follow the logic.
More expensive speakers will sound different but its all just sound to me.
The volume control is the only differentiating factor I'm interested in, other than having surround sound.

I just dont rate audio as any where near as important as video. Never bought a CD or music of any description outside of ipods for the gf.

But hey, I spend $20-$30k a year on golf so you all probably think thats a waste of money.

Each to their own.

I was trying to think of a slim Canadian model / actress, and comparing her with Tara Moss. You know, all the right detail in all the right places, just one has a bit more meat on the bones - in a totally good way!! :blink:

Lyle ,

No - I was being fairly honest (that was why I used the IMHO).

I think my HT system sounds great I only spent $500 on the front speakers.

I have listened to 2 friends HT systems that HAVE spent as much on fronts as I have on the entire audio and video of my system and there really isn't much difference.

I realise that this doesn't make me an audiophile - but a good 5.1 movie still shakes the windows and sounds pretty damn good on my system.

shaking windows is not a basis for determining whether it sounds good or not otherwise I would buy from the DSE or HN salesman everytime. as for your two friends, how do you know they have it set up well? What you might be saying is that all 3 sound poor, which is what i suspect.
