For Full Story: http://www.cepro.com/article/paradig...ning_tests/D1/Paradigm's new $299 (each) SE 1 bookshelf speakers sound better than $1,000+ speakers from a marquis brand. Hit the link for the full details; you've got time to make a decision -- the SE 1, SE 3 ($700, floorstanding), SE Center ($500) and SE Sub ($700) won't ship until sometime after CEDIA.
Very intriguing. I'll be keeping an eye on this one. Thanks, Ax!
Paradigm, always an exceptional speaker for the price. Imitated by many, duplicated by none...

Per Trent's request, I stole a quick look at these things at Paradigm's CEDIA booth. The are indeed impressive, especially for the price. The SEs are not their full-on reference speakers, but neither are they the entry-level ones. From the rep's comments, I guess the idea was to come up with a design that came pretty darned close to reference while still leaving a comfy middle class customer debt-free. As best I can tell, that's exactly what they do.
Pictures of them are on my Flickr account where I posted the 8500 pics.
Excellent! Thanks, David (peace be upon you)!
I'll add these to my spreadsheet.
The $1000 dollar speakers were B&W. Ain't that a kick in ass for them.
oops they are listed now.... i'm calling to find out about availability now...
