    Kevin, yeah i know [​IMG]

    v1s must be about 4 or 5 yrs old though. Seen some decent looking v1s selling on eBay for 80 to 100, so 210 is bit much

    V1s use a different tweeter too, don't they? They are at LEAST 5 yrs old, because I bought v2s right when they came out about that long ago. Considering that they were like $340 new, $210 isn't a great price.

    I just got v4's for 320 if that helps, you should be able to get 3s for closer to 220-250. If you can find them, most people prolly still own them.

    Mini-Monitor V.1 got a soft-dome tweeter. I had the V.2 after reading Corey Greenberg's review in the old Audio magazine....at least, if not more than, 5 years.

    That's a pretty good deal, considering they retail for more $$$ here in the States.

    By the way if you can get them at the equivalent of 305 usd get them. Thats a good deal and you'll be very happy with them the sound great for under 400 bucks! The only think I noticed is that with paradigm speakers the veneer finish is crappy quality where the ends meet. Its not just mine Ive checked 4 pairs. No body would ever notice unless they picked them up and thoroughly inspected them.

    I believe "SG" means he's in Singapore (SG$ being Singapore Dollars).
