    As in, are they generally though of as really good or just OK?

    I have always liked their products and am going to look at the Studio 60's one of these days. I have plenty of subwooferage, I just need quality.

    Any input?

    Try doing a search...Paradigm products seem to be highly respected around here.

    i have always heard that paradigm studio series are great speakers. accurate frequency response and good sensitivity and ability to handle some loud dynamic peaks, and cost less than most speakers with their fidelity. a search should turn up about a billion topics for you to read [​IMG]

    A search will find many results, but personally I own a pair (v.2), and I love them...

    I drive them with a Denon 3802, and they were a significant upgrade in sound quality when compared to my previous pair of Paradigm Monitor 5's.

    I may be biased on the subject, but I believe they are quite popular because of their value, since they're made in Canada...do a search, you'll find alot[​IMG]

    I love my studio 60's. After auditioning several speakers in their price range I found myself most impressed with the Paradigms. best thing for you to do is to go have a listen for yourself as your ears may prefer something different.

    Paradigms are highly regarded as being excellent sounding speakers in their respective price ranges.

    Gee... that's great. Doesn't mean a thing.

    I agree 100%, along with the above posts. They are very nice indeed, and a solid value.

    But you should still go listen to them along with as much else in a similar price range to see what you like. Looks wear off REALLY fast, crappy sound does not. I think most likely you'll love them, but tastes differ, and there are lots of people around here who would prefer something else instead, or flat-out not like them at all. You should go listen, and decide whether they are right for you.

    Yes, although I agree so far with the posts. The best judgement would be your own ears. Paradigm speakers have their own "inherent character" of sound, just like B&W, Martin Logans, Energy, Totem, Axiom, Thiel, Sonus Faber, etc. Some people like them, some don't.

    However, in general, the Studio series are highly regarded speakers from this forum and also from the guys in Stereophile magazine. Apparently the Studio series has very good measurable results when tested in a lab (accurate, smooth, flat response, etc.)

    I myself own Studio 100s v.3, Studio 470, and Studio 80s for the rear, Servo-15. Love them...but defenitely listen to them and compare them with other similar quality speakers and see which "sound" you prefer.

    If possible, try and A/B them with speakers twice their price and see if the law of diminishing returns applies..it did for me.
