I have been watching E-bay lately for a performance set of Paradigm speakers for my mother. It has amazed me what people will pay (near retail) for a used set of speakers at E-bay. I went to the local AV store today and they were having an inventory clearance sale. 4 Titans @ $135 per set 1 CC-170 @ $169 per speaker 1 Integra (High Line Onkyo) DTR5.2 Receiver @ $400 1 Set of Titan mounting brackets @ $25 Total cost of system was $915. Wow! Just goes to show you that you have to be careful what you spend on auctions. I actually thought about doing it. My mothers home burnt down and this set is for her. Sure sounds great!
