For sale is a pair of Paradigm Prestige 85F full range floor standing speakers in as new mint condition. These speakers are the Piano Black finish. They are 8 months old and I am the original owner.
These are fantastic sounding and very dynamic speakers! They image extremely well (better than B&W D804s), play high to low frequencies coherently and portray natural music dynamics. Think of them at Paradigm Studio V5s on steroids. I have them hooked up to over $30k in electronics and they more than hold their own! Additionally, they are great looking speakers with a high wife acceptance factor.

Prestige 85F floorstanding speakers utilize 2.5-way crossover technology to greatly improve off-axis performance (for listeners not positioned directly in front of the sweet spot) and boost deep bass dynamics. This leap in acoustic performance is based in utilizing all three woofers at low frequencies, while the bass/ midrange covers voice and musical instruments without the necessity of "crossing over" to the dedicated midrange.
