Paradigm PS1000 or REL Q100E?

As per the title, which would you go for and why?

The application would be movies 80% and music 20%. Connected (via a coaxial cable) to a lowly, old, but trusty Denon 1801, but with the view to upgrade to 2805, 3803 or similar in the near future.

Small-ish room (about 3.5 x 5m).

Thanks! :)


I wouldn't bother with the Rel Q100E, it's incapable of reproducing movie soundtracks. A mate has one. Similar size room.

I recently compared my PDR-10 (less power than the PS1000 I believe), with a friends REL Quake and the difference was astonishing. The Paradigm was much, much better for movies. The only improvement the Quake made was to any music score...
