Paradigm : Models Atom Monitor
225@ @ Natural Sound (Kitchener Ontario)
Teac 2x100 Stereo Receiver was 199$ i Believe, same location
Polk Audio - PSW Series Explosive Performance of Movies and Music
futureshop had a sale on this a few times @ 199 or 225 I think, it has the high pass and low pass pass through as well, so you dont need a fancy amp with sub out and what not, and it sounds amazing ( I wouldnt touch the low end polk stuff however, the PSW line is good)

excellent music setup i have the sub at around 50%, i like acoustic versions of alot of music, but the monitors alone didn't have the kick i wanted in a big office, typically 2.1 is going to give you much better musical performance over any sort of surround sound as well

My System Specs


I have Paradigm Reference Series front and centre speakers, which they don't sell anymore from the look of the website. I have a Paradigm PS1200 Sub and some Pioneer rear channels. I found the Paradigms to sound fine to my ear, and that is what counts in the end. You have to audition speakers using the music that you will listen to, and try and match the source that will drive them to what you will use. I have a Denon AVR-3300 and when I adjust the bass and treble to the way I like it, I am very happy.
