    I've seen them in Cherry. Very, very nice. Unfortunately, no pics. For me it would be between the cherry and birdseye maple.

    John, I thought the maple was awsome but to light for my dedicated ht, I think I will be happy with the cherry finish[​IMG]

    They are light, but birdseye always has a nice look to it. My mains are cherry [​IMG]

    Bob. Here's one of my cherry S2 on the kitchen table in all is glory...

    The piano black is the most beautiful looking finish IMHO, but the cherry seems to be the least reflective of the finish, and I didn't want my C5 and S8 to reflect the light from my screen!

    Bob... the waiting is the toughest part... [​IMG]

    The drivers look identical to those in the v3 studio series.
    Could they be the same ??

    The drivers are similar design, and quite possibly use the same castings, but they are not identical drivers. The crossovers are considerably improved as well. The Sigs sound noticably better than the Studios.

    Is there any place on line that gives pricing for the Paradigm Sig line? I am mostly interested in the S8 and C5

    Look up dealers in your area on the Paradigm site and call them, since not all dealers carry Signatures. For that same reason, it will be unlikely that you will find a place that will quote you less than MSRP over the phone (you should go listen to them anyway), but if you are going to drop that kind of cash at a place, most good places will work with you on pricing once they know you are likely to purchase.

    No one in my area carries them. I would have to drive a considerable distance just to audition them or get pricing.
    The place I found locally to me (60+ miles away) wont quote prices over the phone.

    I was just curious.
    They seem to be in the same ballpark with B&W Nautilus pricing. I cant wait to audition them to see how they compare (better than, lateral/equal too, or not as good as). I use to own Studio's but I sold them off to get Nautilus. I might switch over to Sig's and come full circle [​IMG]

    Brian, When I heard the sigs in Boston the owner commented that he heard through the grapevine that stores carrying both nautilus and sigs most where choosing the sigs. I think Paradigm went after B&W speakers, it seems to me a lot of dealers in my area carry both lines.

    If anything it keeps these manufactures on their toes and we the consumer benefit in the end[​IMG]

    My local dealer has the sigs at the following prices
    S2's 2K
    S4's 4K
    S8's 6.5K
    C3 1.5K
    C5 3.5K

    These are from memory, I haven't been in for a month or so.
