For sale is a pair of Paradigm Reference Studio 100 v5 Floorstanding Speakers in Black Ash. MSRP is $3,598. This is the most recent version. These speakers produce amazing sound. They are barely broken in as they have less than 50 hours of use. I recently moved to a new house that has an in-wall speaker system so I no longer have use for them. There is a very small nick on the side of one of the speakers and a small scratch on the other speaker. This occurred during the move. They can easily be fixed by a small amount of touch up paint. I have provided pics so you can see.
I am selling these for $2,100 which is cheap for this set of speakers. Below are links of these speakers being sold by other sellers so you can compare prices. Speakers come with original boxes.

Here is a link to the Paradigm website so you can see the specs. Please ask any questions. I am also selling a JL Audio Fathom F112 subwoofer as well and will consider a discount if purchased together. Thanks!
Highest Standard of Technological Excellence

are a complex mix of dialog, music and action effects. This requires a level of articulation and spatial representation that few movie theaters are capable of reproducing. Studio speakers exceed typical high-end home theater sound by expanding the sheer size, scale and dynamics of the acoustic soundstage. While listening to a Studio system The Perfect Vision magazine put it best: "It's just like being at the movies -- except the sound is
a lot better."*
