I keep going back and forth between two sets of Paradigm speakers, and I'm curious which you would choose for your home from an aesthetics standpoint. These will be in the home theater room, adjacent to the living room. Both sound similar, although the 95F pulls slightly ahead in most instances:

95F (Piano Black) Hard to see in the pic, but the speakers are brushed aluminum

or Discontinued Studio 100 (Piano Black)

Based on looks alone, I'd go with the first one. The second one looks butt ugly.

Aesthetically, the first one looks much better but I would guess it could depend on the look you are going for. The second one looks pretty... raw, like the cover came off and no-one bothered to replace it.  Industrial chic perhaps?  icon_wink

Yeah, I'd agree with the others.  If you're going on aesthetics alone at this point I'd probably pick the first one.

Another vote for #1, assuming that they deliver equal sound quality. Either set looks like it would rattle the windows pretty well.

I'm sure it will at some point, but the other ones felt very much like a chunky 90's design to me so even more played out.

Speaking of, now that we've all dissed the available choices, which one did you end up getting?  slywink
