Paradigm Reference Studio 60 v5-Cherry
« on: February 27, 2017, 06:09:21 PM »
I have a set of these loudspeakers available for a new owner that will appreciate their excellent design, good looks and great sound.

Asking price: R17 500.00
Condition: Very good
Reason why on the market: trade in
Location:  Jhb but can be sent to any place with the risk and cost for the buyer's account

Specs and full review
Two-and-a-half-way floorstanding loudspeaker. Drive-units: 1" G-PAL, ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter; 5.5" S-PAL-cone bass/midrange unit; two 5.5" mineral-filled polypropylene-cone woofers. Crossover frequencies: 500Hz, 2kHz. Frequency response: 45Hz–22kHz, ±2dB (on axis), 45Hz–20kHz, ±2dB (30° off axis). Low-frequency extension: 29Hz (DIN). Impedance: compatible with 8 ohms. Sensitivity: 89dB anechoic, 92dB in room.

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.

Some interest but let's see if R15 000.00 is more tempting. (They do sound good, listened to them over the weekend.)

I've got the Studio 60 ver 3 - forerunners of these - and they are excellent speakers. Whoever buys these should be very happy indeed.

Yip, still available.

Interest but all hinge on trades which are not that attractive up to now.

Great afternoon and pending the normal necessities, the Paradigms are on their way to music lovers home. I am sure both will be happy, he and the Paradigms :)
