http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1423.l2649 (not interested, but I'm watching this pair. I want to see what they sell for)

 

http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1423.l2649 (this is a 3. This and the "first one" would not, in my opinion, go well as main and surround)

 

Are those merely main channel choices? If so...Bid early and "high" on those Signatures.

Here you go. Win this and you got your excuse for a road trip to Florida...

1. I can't believe he has no reserve.

2. Shipping anywhere out of Fl is more than the current bid.

3. He'd more than likely change out shipping for him paying for a night in a hotel(with 0 feedback, that is the only way he's getting my money...even though Paypal would back it anyway)

Separately I don't "not like" either one.

I was saying not to mix v3 with any other version.

Paradigm changed their "house sound" on the V3. (there are numerous Paradigm threads on forums)

 

Owners of the "original Paradigm" were happy when V2 came out.

 

I won't say there was "backlash" over the V3, but the V4 reverted back to being more mellow like V1 and V2. Even the V5 is different(but they are "too new" to be plentiful on the used market).

 

Essentially...if you buy V3, take your time and buy more V3.

 

If you buy any other V...you can put it with anything you want. But, I would still keep with the same one. So, if you buy the V2...keep it with V2 and V1 for the remainder of your speakers.

Here is an article on the Sig 2 vs Sig 3. They did the same thing on the woofers for the Mon V2 to Mon V3.

Monitor V2 to V3...

 

V3 added a waveguide(that had been used in the Studio)

The midbass and woofer was changed to a larger magnet(you can tell as they also went to a bullet dust cap).

I understand keeping the same version, but I don't think it matters as much with the surrounds especially in a 7.1 setup or with the SW.

Let me throw out a caveat(which will explain a lot).

 

I prefer my speakers sans grill. The only speakers in my house(that are mine) that still have the grills are my DCM TF. That is because they are in a "sock"(meaning the entire speaker, except the top, is fabric. I've put new socks on them and "sockless", they are hideous).

 

For that reason, you shouldn't put V3 with anything else. But if you leave the grills on...it won't matter as much.

Hi Cathy,

I have a whole series of Paradigm Speakers.  They sound terrific, but I sold my home with my home theatre system.  I have (2) Reference Studio 60, v.2, (2) Reference Studio/ADP, v.2 and (1) Reference/CC, v.2.  I am willing to let all (5) speakers go for $1000, freight collect.  I will insure shipment for $1000.  BAlanMichael
