Hello,
I've got my local HiFi supplier really pushing these Paradigms on me. Does anyone have listening experience / feedback on these speakers vs the M22 in/on walls? I've already pulled the trigger on the QS8's. I'm still wavering on the LCR.

Thx,
Tony

Order the M22s take them into the store and listen to them next to the Paradigms. Don't forget to report back to us. grin

Take some tools with you too, so you can knock some holes in the audio guy's wall to mount the in-cab 22's laugh

Seriously, you're comparing wall mounted speakers to bookshelf style, so I'd first decide which way you want to go there. It's difficult/near impossible to directly compare a wall mount style speaker without having it installed but you can certainly compare the specs of both of these speakers on Axiom's and Paradigm's website. What kind of coin are they asking on the Digm's out of curiousity?

I figured the Millenias were inwall as well. I'd go with a drill and coping saw: much less mess...

Looks like the Paradigms are more geared toward the condo/lifestyle type customer.
