    I am just trying to get a baseline for the amount of discount from canadian list people have been able to get. I have an offer for a pair of Studio 60's (laminate), 20's(laminate), Studio CC, Pw-2200 for $3,000 CAN. What have others been able to get on the Reference Speakers? Please provide prices in Canadian $ and also what finish the speakers were (laminate / Veneer).

    Thanks for your help!

    Several years ago, I had paid CDN$2200, 14% taxes included, for Studio/60 V.1 (floor demos, slightly blemished, dark cherry laminate), Studio/20 V.1 (new, dark cherry laminate), and CC-450 (new, graphite).

    I paid $1,200 CDN for my $60's

    The Studio CC was $400.

    The 20's were selling for $800, which is what I paid

    for the ADP's.

    These are before Taxes and in CDN $.

    I got the following prices from a dealer back in December. Studio/60 $1500, Studio/CC $600 and Studio/20 $800. All in Canadian loonies [​IMG] and all in the laminate finish. The dealer told me these were his list prices.

    a dealer around here gave me these prices:

    Laminated Veneer

    Paradigm Studio 60 1450.00/pr 2000.00/pr

    Paradigm Studio 80 1800.00/pr 2400.00/pr

    Paradigm Studio 100 2400.00/pr 3000.00/pr

    Paradigm Studio CC 600.00 ea

    those are his list prices.

    however, he quoted me the PW-2200 at 800-900, but I got it for 670 at another store, a Stereo Plus, where they give big discounts. therefore, you should be able to get much better prices than those i listed.

    Well, thanks to all the responses to this and other threads on buying Paradigm in Canada, I was able to secure a great deal at Fairview HiFi.

    Thanks to all!

    John,

    Could you tell me where (address if possible) you bought your speakers in Ontario? I live in the Cleveland area and I am considering driving up to Ontario and getting some Paradigm speakers in the Monitor Series.

    Thanks

    Just bought some Paradigm Monitors

    Monitor 7's

    Mini Monitors

    CC370

    for $1275.00 CDN - how did I do ?

    Seemed like a deal from small shop in Sask.

    Actually I priced checked them by quoting $1399.00 for the system as stated in this forum from Ontario.

    So the guy crunched the numbers and came up with $1275.00

    Thankyou HTF

    Audio Ideas Guide's latest buyers guide notes the following Canadian MSRP's:

    Monitor 7 CDN$760/pair

    Mini Monitor CDN$430/pair

    CC-350 (similar to CC-370) CDN$390 each

    Total MSRP = CDN$1580

    $1275/$1580 = 80.7% of MSRP or 19.3% off MSRP....pretty good deal IMO.

    It certainly seems to be worth the time and energy to take a trip to Ontario for me to buy speakers. Thanks everyone.

    Well, I drove 14 hours to get them, but the new Paradigm Studio Reference setup is complete and I think it is safe to say that I am content... for now. I would highly recommend that anyone, who is looking to make a large Paradigm purchase, find a way to get North. It really is worth the trip. I saved over a $1,000 off my local dealers quote (which included a 15% discount).

    John,

    I just went up to Fairview HiFi this past Sunday and bought my speakers. It was only about a 4 hour drive for me. I bought a pair of Monitor 7s, a pair of Minis, a CC370, and the PW2200 Sub. I even had time to stop to see Niagra Falls with the wife and kids. It was a long day but well worth the trip.

    These are the prices I got in Mid-December for my purchase in Montreal.

    All Prices Canadian

    Studio 40's in Lt. Cherry Veneer: $1050

    Studio 20's in Lt. Cherry Veneer: $850

    Studio CC: $400

    Anthem MCA 5 Power Amp $1625

    All in all, I saved about $1500 below my local dealers list price and about a grand off his "best available deal". I probably could have done better in some areas and worse in others, but I didn't care. The savings was good enough for me.
