Impressive right out of the box
Even in my very early listening sessions, the Paradigm exhibited three obvious strengths I'd never before heard from a speaker this affordable:
• Midrange timbral accuracy: From the upper bass through the upper midrange, the harmonic structures of sounds, their timbres, were as natural as I'd heard from any speaker. The reproduction of vocals, woodwinds, and brass instruments on well-engineered acoustic recordings was spooky in its realism;
• Superb detail resolution and transparency: akin to what I'd expect from speakers costing $2000 or more; and
• Lifelike low-level dynamic performance at all volume levels.
These speakers are in good condition for their age. There are some minor scratches. There are also pulls on the speaker grill cloths. Functionally, the speakers work fine. I also have positive feedback on Ebay and Audiogon with the same username.
