Low Points
• The Monitor 7s are surprisingly full-range, though for bass-heavy soundtracks or action movie flair, you'll want to use a capable sub or two to get the most from your investment. 
• You'll want to mate the Monitor 7s to a quality receiver or solid budget separates for them to sound their absolute best, which does drive the cost of ownership up a bit, but don't despair, for even if you put a few extra bucks into your power and/or source components, you're still coming out ahead over buying the competition.
• The Monitor 7s do respond better to some speaker cable than others, meaning you may do a bit of mixing and matching before settling on your final choice. Good places to start would be budget Transparent Cable, Mapleshade and even CAT5 wire.

Competition and Comparison
Compare the Monitor 7's against its competition by reading the reviews for the Klipsch Synergy F-1 loudspeakers and the Aperion Audio Intimus 4T speakers.  Find all the information you need on floorstanding speakers by visiting our All Things Floorstanding Speakers section.

Conclusion
For just under $650 a pair, you'll be hard-pressed to find better budget floor-standing loudspeakers then the Monitor 7s from Paradigm. Never before has such performance and nearly full-range sound been able to be had so cheaply. The Monitor 7s are not just good for budget speakers, they're good, period.
