Bottom Line:   
I picked up this speaker new. I have run it in now. It is used in the HT and for everyday TV. I have thrashed it along with Sound Dynamics R616 fronts to a variety of musc and movies. The reciever is an Onkyo HT I picked up from a mainstream home store. Not huge bucks spent here, however I have had plenty of ear time with much better, (and more expensive) gear. I pay particular attention to position with all equipment and drivers, (many hours spent). The interconnects are base level HiFi shop fodder, and are fine enough for the setup. For TV all is sweet and the CC-270 center is well balanced. Under the pressure of emotional vocals, and accustic guitar the CC-270's cope well. They are not too bright and deliver convincing bass for the size of the enclosure. I have pulled the box to bits and inspected the build quality of all the bits inside and can report for an 'el-cheapo" from Paradigm, the gear and woodwork is more than acceptable. I have treated the CC-270 rough at times with a little rock music and find some of the best ear candy at lower power levels. This is not to say the CC-270 sounds anything other than value for money at larger power levels, however most of us listen to music at a level that will not bring the noise control around.
Overall I am happy with the performance for the bucks outlaid. I am not fully infected with the audio illness yet, but like a cold in winter I can feel it coming on. There is little difference in the feeling actually, and like a cold it will not leave my body until I have beaten it. So, for now I am happy with the reproduction of voice in music and movie effects etc from the CC-270.
