    New Reference v3s. They're lighter and the +/-2db point for bass is just a bit higher than the v2s (though their max. extension is the same).

    Silly me, I had a chance to head to head 20s and completely forgot about doing it (listened to 60s in a nonideal setup).

    The specs say the mids are ferrofluid cooled, must be a misprint.

    Finally. I wanted to see specs last weekend, when I had the 40s at home for an audition (4 days). Honestly, I was not blown away by them. They were 2 months old and broken in. I found them to be a bit too bright, though smoother sounding than the v2s.

    When they updated the v3Monitor line, there were a number of errors too. They will likely fix the problems in time.

    The only place I see fluid cooled midrange is on the 100 and 570, which share this new 4" mid. Maybe it IS fluid cooled?

    Did the site crash with just the HT forum traffic? If it did, that's pretty WEAK!

    I've been trying most of the day, and all I get is "Gateway Timeout"

    It looks like they are suffering from the power outages in the east. Paradigm is in Toronto right? Somewhere over there. Bummer, i wanted get those specs too, did you happen to notice if they had the signature series up too?

    Yes, I would imagine they are/were without power.

    Actually, I wanted to drool at the pictures. [​IMG] But I'm sure others will want to get some specs too. Thanks! I'll look em over. I'm just trying to restrain myself from ordering a pair unheard.

    Must...stay...away....from...credit card....
