Someone's got to have an opinion on this...
I keep reading good things about this Aperion system, but need some feedback from you guys..
Is there something you think is better in this price range?
I have an Aperion system from 4 months ago
and it is drop dead amazing (5C center, 6B fronts, 4B rears and a 12D sub). I spent about 2K on it but I have no doubt their smaller systems will still be more than adequate for small to medium size rooms.
But you might also consider Energy, SVS, JBL, Klipsch, and Polk speakers as well. Paradigm speakers are great of course but they can get pricy as they are sold via brick and mortar only. Aperion, SVS, and Energy sell factory direct so your bang for you buck with their systems tends to be higher (in my opinion). Do some research on these companies on boards like AVS Forums and on various home theater and hi-fi review sites and see if you can narrow your search down some.
I would be very careful however
as lots of high end AV gear is sold on the internet without the approval of the manufacturer. Be sure to check with Paradigm before you buy to make sure you are purchasing from an authorized reseller. Otherwise your warranty will likely not be honored.
And be sure to check out the details. Lots of small internet resellers that advertise they have the cheapest prices make up the difference with items hidden in the small print... restocking fees, overly large "shipping and handling" charges, etc.
A couple of safe ones
Amazon & One Call seem to be the more reputable sources that came up in my froogle.com search.
Amazon is my goto for computers and electronics.
With a prime membership I get super-fast shipping for free and no tax. I also like J&R, B&H Photo, Crutchfield, and Abes of Maine.
But I avoid buying from any Amazon "partners". Been burned
with painfully slow expensive shipping and not so hot return policies one too many times.
AVS Forums will help a lot, thanks! This is very helpful guys, I appreciate the feedback.
You're very welcome. Good luck.
