Edit: Before I bought the Angstroms I was auditioning the Paradigm's along with B&W's that were about twice the price when you add up the price of the Modular 2's and 10i sub. I was frankly really dissapointed in both sets of speakers. I found them quite bright and harsh. I will admit that I'm really sensitive to the higher frequencies so your experience may be different. Thank god for Silk dome tweekers :)


As for other fantastic Canadian speakers you can look into Totem if you listen to a lot of classical, although they are expensive. By far my favourite Canadian speakers right now are Angstrom (Loud Speakers | Angstrom Loudspeakers). IMO the best price/performance out there right now. Look into the Modular series, the Mod 2's are around $650 and their center channel is only $350. If you email them you can get their 10i sub for around $250 as B stock instead of the full price of $850. This has been the only setup I've heard where the sub this musical. It dissapears completely as do the Mod 2's. All you are left with is the music.
