As a rule, I try to avoid trade-ins but I do make exceptions for products that I feel I can promote with an open mind. I believe the Paradigms are in that category. Exceptional value and solid engineering from a reputable manufacturer. The previous owner is zealous over his components so the units come well loved and care for. With above average sensitivity and benign impedance, a match with a good valve amp is not ruled out.
