    You can find the dealers in NYC on the websites for both B&W (http://www.bwspeakers.com/) and Paradigm (http://www.paradigm.ca/Website/Deale...lerFrames.html).
    I purchased my Paradigms as an upgrade from my evil Bose speakers at Park Avenue Audio (on Park Ave South & 29th I believe). The store is pretty small and the selection is limited, not to mention the listening conditions are not ideal, but the people there are pretty nice.
    After a little while with the Paradigms (and after selling my car) I decided to upgrade to some B&W Nautilus 804s and I have been absolutely blown away them. I picked them up at Innovative Audio Video at 150 East 58th street (they also have a Brooklyn store). Again, I had a great experience and wasn't pressured at all. Being a 25 year-old with long hair and a goatee, it's quite a pleasant surprise to be treated like a valued customer and a high-end audio store the minute I step in the door (avoid The Stereo Exchange at all costs, unless you look like a million bucks!).
    And as always, especially in New York City, try to hit the store during work hours mon-fri. These places get pretty crowded on the weekends, but during the week the salespeople tend to have a lot more time to spend with you.
    Good luck, Brian
