By what I see on forums lately you would think Paradigm is Bose or something. I just read this off a different forum. "I would get the Energys over the Paradigm. I really don't understand why so many people like Paradigm. I owned a Paradigm before (mini monitors), and have heard the Studio 20 in a store. From all of what I heard with Paradigm speakers, the monitor series sounded too rich in the bass, lacking in the midrange, and the tweeter was harsh. The Studios were just over generous on the bass. To me, Paradigms are totally unmusical. Just play a solo piano recording and you'll see how the Paradigms color the midrange." IF this isn't flaming I don't know what is. I wonder in the person who wrote this has ever heard a real instrument. Paradigm owners what do you think?
