Gorgeous Paradigm Studio 20 Bi-Wire / Bi-Amp High End Reference Speakers with Flawless Original Drivers and Beautiful Black Ash Cabinets MSRP $800!
Jerry Vander Marel and Scott Bagby founded Paradigm Electronics in Ontario, Canada in 1982 and for the past 20 years have consistently been producing high quality / high value speaker systems. These Reference Studio 20 speakers are part of their high end Reference model lineup, and have been one of their most successful products. Paradigm is known for their clean, crisp sound, and these reference model have a richness and inner detail not found on the lower end models. They are superb 2-way speakers that are rear ported and have dual sets of speaker terminations to accommodate bi-wire and bi-amp hook ups. I also have the original gold shorting clips so that you can attach them with standard 2-conductor speaker cables.
These speakers have all original drivers in flawless condition both cosmetically and functionally. The cabinets are in excellent condition, but are not perfect. There are some nicked edges and corners, one that has been nicely repaired and is virtually invisible, the others are very tiny and have been touched up. Both of the protruding top cabinet domes have very small, slight scuffs on the top, and the front bottom protrusions also have a couple very slight cosmetic scuffs. While there are quite a few small blemishes, they are truly tiny and barely visible as you can see in the photos the cabinets look great even from close up. There are scuffs and scratches on the bottoms under of both cabinets. The speaker grills look terrific. There is one slightly bigger scrath under one of the speaker as seen in the second picture.
There are many glowing professional and owner anecdotal reviews on the internet for these impressive, well built and beautiful sounding speakers. There are a large number of owner reviews on the AudioReview web site, where these Studio 20 speakers score an amazing 4.67 out of perfect 5.0 extremely difficult to do on an open forum rating website. You can see that the very first review body slams them, while the vast majority of the 126 reviews are effusive in praise. Note that AudioReview web site does not have sections for each of the Paradigm Studio 20 iterations (V.1, V.2, V.3, V.4, etc.), so many of these 126 reviews are for slightly different versions of this Studio 20 model).

Those are great speakers but I need to sell them as I have 2 pairs and only using 1 pair.
Shipping to lower 48 only on UPS only since those are valuable and I want them to reach destination safely.
