Durning lunch yesturday the Paradigm/Anthem Rep paid a visit to my local Dealer with a Demo Pair of S2's finished in Birds Eye Maple. My dealer called me, but by the time I got the message the rep had already packed up the speakers. But, they do look fantastic. Furniture quality finish. Best I have ever seen. Also, Everything is different. Not just the finish. The cabinet is different, the xover, the drivers...everything. As for the sound, everyone who was at the demo when they were hooked up said it was night and day difference between the V3 studio's and the Signatures. On the good side, I did get a nice Paradigm Shirt.
