    Hi group,

    I'm still debating the whole Paradigm vs. B&W speaker setup.

    I guess I'm going to have to bring a pair of each home and demo them.

    Anyway, a few questions: What are the Studio 40's and Studio CC going for in Canada?

    Also, has anyone from the US even successfully bought a pair of Paradigms from the Canada and had them shipped down? And saved a lot of $$?

    I know the Studio 40's here are $900/pair. Could maybe get one dealer down to $800 or so. But I think that's about it. Is it worth it to seek out a way to get these from Canada, or does it just not make sense? How about flying up there and bring them back? I think there's one province where we could buy and be charged no tax at all. Well, you'd get it back at the border.

    Thanks, Aaron

    I can get you in touch with a Canadian dealer that will give them to you for about $550 US. As with all Paradigm dealers, you must pick them up in the store. They will not ship.
    Another thought: you would save enough to be able to fly up and buy them and then bring them back (either by air) or ship them back.
    Too bad they wont ship [​IMG]

    Aaron;

    As Greg has said, no dealer will ship to you. Paradigm is very firm on this point. They respect their dealer network and prefer to avoid the conflict of one dealer entering another's territory. If a dealer is caught doing this, they can be cut off from the Paradigm network the same day.

    You'd have to pick them up yourself or find another method.
