Thanks, J stereo! It's great to hear from someone who's heard both. I suspect that I'd be happier with the Paradigms - I'm nervous the RS6s might be bright, regardless of the Stereophile review with my 5350SE. However, as you say, the difference in price is tough to ignore. The Monitors have come up for as little as $450-$550 here on Agon (missed a pair in Harrisburg, PA). Perhaps someone living close to me in the Philadelphia area will list some, so I can go listen and make an informed purchase.
