I am thinking I should do a listen for comparable speakers. Does anyone have a list of comparable speakers to the Paradigm Prestige 85F that I should consider?

I am basically looking to spend about $6500 max for my front speakers(front 3).
I don't have a list, but have you checked out PSB? I see you have them, have you considered a step up?
Those T3's look fn awesome. But maybe the T2's are within your budget?

Myself, I want those 85F's and a 55C badly. I'm aiming for springtime to have those beauties.

Yes. I do enjoy PSB. I did take a listen to the T2's and I actually wasn't the biggest fan when comparing them to the B&W.

My current PSB are OK overall however I am looking to get the kind of speakers that I will not have to upgrade for 10-15 years at this point. Tough decision and the biggest problem is the audio stores that I used to go to are all out of business now. I guess I didn't buy enough speakers.

I would say that the B&W speaker was the new 702 S2. I was just looking the update my old speaker set-up. I listened to Kef R700, the 702 S2 and the 85F's. I'm going with the 702's with HTM71 center and 2 sets of 707 S2 for sides and back. Just waiting for them the come in.

85f's are a great speaker. I went with the 95f's personally and I don't regret it. Also finally picked up a Sub1 today. Man that thing kicks ass

85's and 55C were on my radar but are on the back burner for a bit.

Did you sell your 100's? If so, that must've been tough.
Are you gonna keep the 690?

How do you have the 15B and Studio 20's set up?

I checked out your Youtube video. You've got good taste in music. Was the 1st song Mudvayne or Hellyeah?
Insane collectibles you've got!!

Happy New Year gates70!

Hey! Been away since my last post. Sorry.

I had 60's before and I kept them for a 2-channel setup in my living room. Needed speakers to go with my new NAD 388.

The 690 is still in my system and plays seamlessly with the rest. At first I wanted to change it to the 55 to match but even my dealer asked me why I'd want to do that. So I kept it.

The 15B's are on side duty while my 20's are in the rear. They're a good match tonally.

Yeah that's Mudvayne but that video is over 5 or 6 years old now. My collection and equipment has changed considerably since then. I'll also need new pics in my gallery since the room doesn't look like that anymore. Procrastination at it's best lol

Happy New Year to you as well buddy!

I'm glad you kept the 690. That's a special speaker and would be difficult to replace. I had a brief thought of buying it from you if you were getting the 55C, but thought you'd be like... hahaha!

I may put audio on hold for a bit and work on the video now. I need 4K, especially since Atmos is mostly on 4K discs now, grrrr.
I'll get a display, then focus on an Amp, then Prestige.

Have a gooder Bro!

LOL at that meme! As far as putting audio on hold, you can only upgrade so much before you get diminishing returns. I'm pretty much at that point now me thinks. I just swapped my 2 Sub 12's for a Signature Sub 1 and I think that's it for a while. I had an issue with one of the Sub 12's in which I need to repair it. The other one is fine...but my dealer had a deal I couldn't refuse on the Sub 1 which was more than half price off.

As for the video side of things, I'm waiting it out a bit because of so many changes coming. HDR10+ vs DV vs HLG etc....I'm on projector guy so I want the best possible projector and that probably won't be until next year at the earliest.
