High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeakers
One of the best bang for the buck speakers that Paradigm ever made. These feature a big soundstage, awesome dynamics with a wide, expressive dynamic range, and a midrange that is seductive and musical. New grilles, factory box and packing are included. They are in really nice condition, except for side cabinet ding that can be glued back into place.
"The Studio/60 v.3 is significantly bigger and significantly better than the v.2. Perhaps the most important improvement is in the v.3's overall smoothness and balance, from the low bass all the way to the top. This is difficult to achieve, and has been the downfall of many speakers, especially low- to mid-priced floorstanders. It's also why many listeners forgo deep bass altogether in this price range, preferring to go with small two-way monitor speakers. The Paradigm Reference Studio/60 v.3, however, has a seamlessness and a wide frequency range that I usually associate with speakers many times its price. In this range, several other speakers have outstanding and desirable traits, but no speaker costing anywhere near $1600/pair has a better integration of all performance parameters than Paradigm's Reference Studio/60 v.3." - Stereophile Magazine
