Not on line yet, however, the subwoofer did pretty good, however, I'm not so sure about $2,200 soundbar systems.

The sub reminds me of some of Def Tech (like the 6000), however, the Martin Logan is much less expensive.

I like the remote on the Dynamo.

When will the review of the 700w be posted? Planning to get that sub soon.....$500 is a good price for it.

If you contact Brent Butterworth from Sound&Vision (he posts on AVS), he might be able to tell you when the review will be available on line. If you can get the Martin Logan for $500 run, don't walk to the store. This remote controlled sub would be a real bargain at $500.

If you score one for $500 please let me know smile.gif

No need to run the price is always there. I work at a store that provide an awesome discount with audio systems. I just got a Paradigm Monitor 11 V7 package includes: Center 3, and Surround 3 in black. I would love to sell it and upgrade to a CM9 since the discount is par to the price I got for Paradigm.

Debating if I should get the 700w or 1000w for my Paradigm set-up. Thank for the follow up. I will check with Brent.

I'm thinking it doesn't have a remote. It can be made wireless but there is no remote control like the Def Techs.

Good information, however, I just wonder if the prices you are getting are because you work at the store? Does the average Joe get the same discount you do ? smile.gif

Yes, that is correct.

Average Joe - $699
Employee - Much less than the retail price.

Correct; wireless is an option, not part of the base package.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

I know this thread is about a year old now, but I just picked up a new one for $545.00 plus tax.  I think I got a great deal.  It helps that I work with one of their (Audivisions) old (and respected) employees.  And got 2- Motion 15's for $655.00 plus tax.  The dynamo sounds fantastic.  Wish it had a remote though.

Yes, once you gain some experience with remote controlled subs, you miss remote control. Precious few subs offer remote control. Velodyne has several models with remote control but the best of the Velodyne's with remote are pricey.
