If you are looking at Paradigms in that price range I would look at the Reference series. They do sound better, smoother with more detail and better imaging and the Reference series starts at $800 per pair. If you ar looking at an AVR and don't want to spend the bucks on an NAD, Rotel, or Arcam then your best bet is HK, Marantz, or Denon. They mate well with Paradigm and provide somewhat honest power ratings. The Reference series really mates well with the better electronics and the Monitor series is a good match with HK, Denon, and Marantz. Any of these matchups should provide good sound.
Please advise about the new Definitive Speakers bipolar series, BP7002, BP7004, BP7006. These speakers have the sub woofer inbuilt in the towere speakers, do these function well, as impressive as the separate sub woofer.
Along with this the shopkeper was showing a paradigm center speaker again with power sub woofer inbuilt. I wonder if these function as good as the separate sub woofer.
I saw the AVR-3805 Denon amps. Please advise if the product is good and really the worth they have been asking for. Will this match with the Defenitive speakers
