How Do I Shop For Speakers? (1 Viewer)

After doing various research on this forum and going into stores to audition speakers, I've finally decided to buy a pair of either the Paradigm Studio 40's or 60's, most likely next week. Problem is, I'm not sure what would be a good price for these speakers, nor am I sure what negotiating tactics would work to get a dealer to further lower his prices. I was wondering what those of you who bought the 40's or 60's (in the US) paid for your speakers (laminate prices, preferably), what would constitute a good deal, and how did you get the dealer to come down on his price?

Thanks,

Justin

I've always just shopped on the internet, print off a couple of price sheets that are the lowest and take them to a local dealer and ask them how close they can come to these prices. You'll probably pay a little more still but not having to ship them off in the event of a failure is a nice thing...
I bought a set of Klipsch Reference series and i'm more than happy with them :)

It depends on the product you're purchasing & the salesperson you're dealing with. In my experience, it's rare to get more than 10% off on Paradigm equipment.

For $775-800 you can get the Paradigm Studio 40 v2

$1000-1100 would be the cheapest you can get the Paradigm Studio 60 v2. (A more realistic price is 1400-1500)

If you went used, you could maybe knock off $100 or so from the lowest price I listed above.
