These Canadian made speakers are amazing! I've treasured them over the last few years - these are v1 speakers in outstanding shape. I would rate them 7 out of 10 based for looks and 10 out of 10 for sound. A close friend that is highly active on Audiogon felt the Paradigms were closer to an 8 - the only flaw that I noticed was a small ding on one corner that is only visible upon close inspection. The grilles are in great condition with some normal wear/piling based on age. The drivers are all in excellent condition.
I recently upgraded to 2 channel system and I used these for my front's when I had a home theater setup with a paradigm center and aperion satellites, they totally rocked!
I also loved these for 2 channel listening - I found them well balanced with a great soundstage and nice bass!
I would love to keep them but no space for extra speakers in my apartment - I do not have the original boxes or manuals. These come from a non-smoking/no pet home and have been treated exceptionally well.
These speakers have never been driven overly hard, sound fantastic, and are extremely well built. These speakers consistently get outstanding reviews and are recognized as being exceptional performers in the sub-$2000 range.
Note these are ready for bi-wiring, as I had specific interconnects for bi-wiring I no longer have the jumpers.
