Paradigm Speakers

Paradigm makes great speakers. I would know, I have a pair of Studio 100s (v5). Sadly, that model is no longer made and in my opinion it was their best, even better than their more expensive Signature line! (Also no longer made). However, I have not heard the Prestige line, so my opinion for now goes better with a grain of salt. I have heard their most expensive line (the Persona series) and putting price aside, I was not that impressed. I think my Studios sound better. (I found their Persona speakers a bit harsh for my taste, but your mileage will vary).
