Oh please... If we were talking about an audiophile with a highly optimized system, each piece of which was selected by himself after hours of auditioning in his home environment, then I might agree, but that sort of person probably wouldn't have made the OP. Since the OP doesn't show any tendency towards complex selection criteria, I don't think recommending paradigm is particularly out of place.
Paradigms have very uniform frequency response across the spectrum. It's part of their design philosophy, so it's hard to me imagine them ever sounding bad with any one particular amp unless the amp does something unusual. They're also very efficient and easy on the amp, so you don't have to worry about that either. They don't have any bass ports in the rear of the speaker, so they're fairly forgiving of room placement, although a couple feet away from the walls is almost always advisable.
The fact is, most people aren't going to bother bringing home multiple different speakers to audition with their home equipment. Most people aren't going to have an amp that will sound bad with them. And I've never read a bad paradigm review, using all sorts of different amps and sources, ever. They're a great general usage speaker, whether for home theater or classical, and in birds eye maple, they're also quite pretty.
