Something like the Focal Dome system does edge out ahead of this one in just about every regard, but it has the price tag to match at around 3,200 CAD.
Could you tell me more about why you think the Focal Dome is better? Here in the US the systems are about the same price ($2600), if you get the Paradigm Millenia sub that matches the 5.0 system. I have been doing a lot of research and have basically narrowed it down to either the Focal Dome 5.1 or Millenia One + Sub, so any comparison you could give between the two systems would be awesome.
I worked at a dealer which sells both products, so I had the opportunity to listen to both systems nearly side by side. The Focal Dome system sounded much smoother through the treble, not recessed or 'less bright' just smoother, and a tad more detailed. The midrange on both systems is great, but both do lack some of the lower mid-bass larger drivers/cabinets provide. I would say the Paradigm system suffered from this less so than the Focal did. Aesthetics are entirely subjective, and I'm not particularly partial to one or the other, they both have a small footprint with attractive enclosures.
I would say the Focal Dome system is more "musical" where the Paradigm Millenia system is more "neutral". I demoed the system with a concert Blu-ray, which might be why the Focals sounded better although it's hard to say because different amps were used. The Focal Dome system was powered by an Arcam AVR400, a very nice and fairly expensive piece of kit, where the Paradigm Millenia were powered by one of the better NAD AVRs (T series, can't remember which, sorry). This could be the reason for the Focals sounding smoother.
If it were my money I'd go with the Paradigm system for local support, and to buy Canadian. The two systems are really too close to separate. For demo purposes the Focal system had a bit more wow factor to it. I like the neutral sound of Paradigm, and I love my Studio 100s.
