Thanks to everybody who responded! I only picked the 100's because I want three-way speakers. I am going by a Paradigm dealer today. I am even thinking that maybe the 60's would be enough. With the reviews about the 80's, they all seem to comment on the fact that speaker placement is fussy, and that they REALLY have to be away from the wall. Not an ideal set-up for my room. 14ft X 26ft, with a pool table in the middle.

Pretty close. I am running a Basic M1 with a Basic C1 pre-amp. That combo has served me well for many years with my now dead Acoustic Research speakers. Maxed out every weekend for a decade and a half. IMHO, that is pretty good return for the money.

I knew that once I mentioned their name, I would get that question :-) There is no model number on the speaker. For some reason, I am thinking AR303. They are 24" X 12" X 10". They were a very good speaker in their day, for the average music lover. They cost me a $1,000.00, 15 years ago. Every other electronic product has dropped significantly in that time. However, I notice that home audio is the exception. Who buys 10 to 50 thousand dollar speakers??? I can't imagine, with pop or rock, there being that huge a difference.

I had the basic C2 preamp.The pre died on me a few years back but the M2A is still running stong at a freinds house.You should have no problems driving the 80s with that combo.

i think you have to have at least a foot of permafrost to qualify as tundra. he's about 3 inches shy of qualification.

Sudden change. Patience is not my strong suit. I ordered the 60's today. I was told that if they are not enough, I can upgrade to the 80's with no additional shipping charges. I knew that if I went to a high end store today, I would end up spending an obscene amount of money. Considering the upgrade from old to new, I am sure that I will be very impressed with the sound quality. And I can always get more power with the 80's if needed.
