THIS is sad. That overseas junk factory is gettin' pretty ballsy.
Sure does have a lot of drivers! Paradigm could always write a legal letter indicating trademark violations and send it off to ebay.
Could they really? The name is spelled differently.
Those look like the white-van speakers that GR Research tested.
I'm not sure exactly what the laws are, but Microsoft recently won a case against Lindows just because the name is so similar and they were for directly competing products. I would think the same would apply in this situation.
So if I license my company as "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ 1234567890 LTD" could I sue everybody else because they're using some kind of iteration of my company name?
how can a speaker be 4-8ohms?
Some one should send that link to Paradigm.
The trademark law basically asks whether there is likely going to be confusion among consumers. I guess they found Lindows could be confused with Windows (especially since they are directly competing). I can see how there would be confusion between Paradigm and Paradyme (especially if they both make speakers).
All speakers are - impedance changes with frequency. In this case though, I think these guys just had no idea what they were talking about.
They look like they are worth a pair of dimes I'll bid TWENTY CENTS.
Let me know how you like them
Paradyme is a local home theatre store in the Sacramento, CA area. They've had through the years many calls for these "Paradyme" speakers directed at them, when they have nothing to do with this "knock off" company.
The best 'knock off' I've seen was "PANASOINC". Friggin hilarious.
At least it has a "large magnet structure". That's gotta count for something.
There must be like 50 or so different "brand" names for the speakers that are oozing out of some factory somewhere (must be somewhere in the Orient), and they slap the same sticker above the binding posts on all of them that always has "LARGE MAGNET STRUCTURE" on it, along with some other useless specs.
They must take us for a buncha friggin' morons. But then again there are people buying these things. Browsing Ebay for speakers is getting sickening because it's totally infested with this junk.
Be on the lookout for "Inphinitee" speakers.
Brooklyn acoustics and polka audio are pretty good.
Printed in bold letters on some of the tweeters on these things is "SUPER BULLET TWERTER" Yep, they can't even spell right.
well the bid right now is 35 dollars. I think i might up that to 36 i could use those cabinets. ofcourse my drivers would probably get some kind of desease or something.
Next, somebody will come up with Paradiggum speakers — some outfit with little knowledge of English, that is.
I'm looking for a pair of Sorny or Magnetbox speaks.
