I currently have an aged Paradigm 5.1 setup and am looking to upgrade it to 9.1. My current set up is:
  • Fronts: Titan v2
  • Center: CC-170 v2
  • Surrounds: ADP-170 v2
  • Sub: PDR-12


I've been trying to find used Titan or Atom v2 for the width and rear speakers, but new Micro's V3 are easier to find and seem to be a similar match to my titans. How far off are the v3 micros from the v2's?

Thanks!!

It might be worth considering just biting the bullet and replacing the center: that would let you get 4 new speakers for your fronts and move your current fronts to rears (I don't think timbre matching between surroudns and rears is an issue, but I've not worked much with 7.1/9.1)
Yep. Gone down that "mental path" a few times. Then I start thinking if I'm spending that much, why don't I just upgrade everything and then start looking at Axiom an Emotiva's sites... Then I come back to the e-bay hunt for Titan/Atom v2 and start all over. :dontknow:

9se MKII?

How would 9se MKII blend with my v.2 Titans? I'm finding them more on ebay than Monitor 7 v.2? Does MkII mean v.2?

Hello,
That is truly sound advice. Having the front stage be as close as possible is of the upmost importance.
With the Center Channel being the lynchpin in almost all HT Soundtracks, I completely agree that if upgrading the fronts, upgrade the center.
Cheers,
JJ
Thanks JJ (and JCD),

Since the front stage is important and I don't want to do a major upgrade at this time, I believe my best bet is to find Titan/Atom v.2 for the width speakers. I already have ADP-170 v2 for the side surrounds. For rears, I will also look for Titan/Atom v.2, but it sounds like I could go with the micros, since rears aren't as important as fronts as far a matching.

Now, as far as Titan/Atom v.2. I'm having a real hard time finding "v.2". How would "v.1" (i.e., Titan or Atoms with no version number) blend with my front v.2?

Thanks all, again!
