http://signature.paradigm.com/ I saw that C5 center, WOW that thing is huge.
Saw it the day it was posted. I am in awe, but word is it will be VERY VERY expensive (at least 2-3X more than the Studio Series )
The C5 center aparently goes down to 25hz at 3db down in a "typical listening room"!!!!!
Awesome I'm sure it's come up before, but does anyone have the complete MSRP list? Gonna have to tell my dealer to get some in for his shop...
MSRP is just over 2x compared to the Studios. I auditioned the S2s - $1900/pr. The price is almost justified, as they perform very well. It's also just over 3' wide. Basically the size of a small tower speaker on it's side...it's larger than the Studio 40/S4. It would take up most of the width of my TV
I had a chance to demo the Signature S2 bookshelf and S4 and C3 (mains and centre) in a home theater config today. Exquisite finish and sound! The speakers were finished in Birds eye Maple and look fantastic. The signature line is a HUGE improvement over the reference line. Spent about 30 minutes listening to the S4 in 2 channel. Excellent soundstage and projection from this speaker. The clarity is very good, the tweeter has a much more refined sound compared to the harshness in the reference line (find they are bright). The speakers were being powered by a Anthem MCA 50 and Anthem AVM20 pre/pro. Proved an excellent combo with this good a speaker. I do not think you can get a better speaker in Canada at this price. In my opinion, the Signature's impressed me far more than the B&W nautilus. In case anybody is interested, the dealer said the list price is: S2: $2850/PAIR s4:$4000/PAIR C3: $2500 (CANADIAN $) and that he could definiteley beat that price.
So, will trading-up from four Atoms & a CC-170 to four S2's and a C3 be a good upgrade, or should I better spend my money on Monster Cable instead? Seriously, I'd like to see a SVS PB2+ vs Servo15 showdown.
