Bottom Line:   
Wow!...if you thought the classic ROgers ls 35a blew your hair back with vocals you have to auditon these small but extremely well built speakers...their c-cam drivers and first order crossover create a very seamless that rivals planars and Quads...a little pricey at $1100 but you do get what you pay for...although there is no bass below 50hz... THEY SOUND THEIR BEST IN VERY SMALL ROOMS...THAT SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE..

Bottom Line:   
One note before you read on, I am evaluating the Monitor Audio 2.5 speakers. The main difference between the Monitor 2 and 2.5 is that the 2.5 is ported in the front of the speaker versus the 2's which are ported in the rear. They each have a 6.5" mid/bass polypropolene driver and Monitor Audio's fantastic gold dome aluminum tweeter.

I purchased these as the rear channels to my home theater. To break them in, I obviously listen to these playing music for about two months. I was very impressed with the lower midrange (especially the drums and acoustic guitars). As with all Monitor Audio speakers the gold dome tweeter is excellent! However, if you plan to use these as your main speakers, purchase a very good sub woofer to go with them. With the proper sub, it would be no problem using these as your main speakers.

sub for paradigm studio 20v.2's?

I am enjoying the sound of my paradigms, my only gripe is somewhat lack of low end (I realize due to them being bookshelf's and not floor standing). Does anyone have advice on a sub that would match the sound quality, or should I look into a similar floor stander instead? Any tips are appreciated. ... Read More »
