Rather new around here. Not an audiophile, but always wanted a good sounding stereo set up. I've been beating myself up trying to make a choice, but finally placed orders for said speakers to audition in my home. I've want the NHT's for years, but recently stumbled on Ascend and couldn't make up my mind. I'm sure both will be a step (or two) above my Paradigm Titans. Anyone out there had both and care to share an opinion?
