    Very nice! I like the matching racks. They give the setup nice clean lines.

    Probably because it was only launched a month and a half ago. Pull up a chair and chat, I think you'll find a little different atmosphere here.

    A store called Oak Plus. The seating is made by Douglas Furniture out of California. The seats are all leather and are very comfortable. Plus I love having cup holders. No more spilled drinks. :wink:

    How do you like the Paradigm's in the back. I have a friend with a full mini set up and he loves it.

    I think they're great! The sound they produce is very ear pleasing. For their small size they sure put out some powerful sound. For my needs, their job as rear center surrounds and left surr/right surr height channels, they are perfect!

    I may at some point replace them with wall mounted Martin Logan Scripts, but for now it's working and sounding great. So I'm happy! :D
