I am able to buy a slightly used Paradigm cc690 for around $1,000 here (new one cost almost $2k here), the VP180 with tax will cost me $1,415.

Could the Paradigm blend nicely with my M60v2?

Is the cc690v5 comparable with VP180?

why wouldn't you buy the VP180 to begin with; will it cost more to buy and get to you in relation to the paradigm cost?

i would dare to gather that (being made by axiom) the VP180 is a closer match to the M60 than the digm simply because both the 60 & 180 are designed by the same company. folks here at axiom have purchased a 180 to go with their 60's and love it.

please understand, this is not a knock at paradigm, they are a fine speaker and i do own a pair of them; i also own 14 axiom speakers too!

just curious as to why you want to mix-match the speakers and hey, for all i know, their center might just sound great with the 60's!

no matter what you do, please keep us posted.

I would get a speaker with a 5yr warranty. Can't tell you if it would be similar sounding.

Hi mpyw,
I don't know how well the Paradigm will integrate with the Axiom M60 but I can tell you that the VP180 is an excellent match with the Axiom M60. I did an installation with this configuration and the customer is a very happy and totally satisfied Axiom owner! I don't see how a Paradigm speaker could be a better match to an Axiom speaker ???

I think a Paradigm center would blend very nicely as Axiom and Paradigm have a similar sound. I was this <> close to buying a 690 center to go with my M80s but that extra few hundred I would have to spend kept me from doing so and knowing for certain how they would sound together.
