I think those are the speakers Krusty the Clown has.

They sure are pretty & sound quite awesome too , all aluminum and sexy profile..The word voluptuous pops in my mind.
I own them some time back, but sold them because I was living with some roommate that didn't understand the premise of a great speaker...Miss them especially the tremendous waves of low energy out of a tower of power

I'm sure they can be had, far less for what I paid for them five years ago, on agon... Well worth it, me thinks..

Actually when I auditioned them, my son was in the same room and he was touching the horn. I swear the salesman yelled and ran across the room, though luckily I got there first. I wondered if he was gonna charge me for leaving fingerprints...

My dream speaker is not too shabby



Ino audio i64s top speaker (yes it needs a bunch of subs to work!)

But I feel the little brother, that I have, is not too bad either:



Ino audio i32s with 4 Ino audio Profundus Y passive subs

Sound and video is not magic, it is pure physics. Physics that can be magical

Some might think of them as plain but I like the classic understated style of the Dynaudio Focus 220.

I really wanted the black, but couldn't find them anywhere. I ended up with the cherry, which really surprised me how nice and polished the finish is (they looked like crap at the Magnolia).

Been listening the John Mayer BD to break them in for the past 6 hours. Johns never sounded so good.

You are welcome.. I do a lot of web research and some coding/hacking for a living so in all honestly, it was about 10-15 minutes of computer time. Happy to help.

NO.. They are NOT my Sig 8's. I took a brief look on the web and there were limited photos available on the Paradigm Sig's, so I took that off a review web site. I was a tad surprised that Paradigm did not have any high resolution photos of their speakers. I am sure a current Sig 8 owner on AVS can do a much better job then that photo that I found on the net.

The only Paradigm's I've owned were the Studio 100's, Studio 40, 20's and the Reference center, version 2 series. I actually still own the 20's from 10 years ago and still use them in my main room until I can get my act together as my speaker choices have been all over the map. I'll never sell the 20's as they make great backup speakers and are work horses. They are easy to transport, durable as hell and sound worthy in their own right.

My favorite in your selection of speakers besides the Magico 6's (what a wet dream) are the Magico Mini's. Even though they seem outrageously expensive at 30K for monitors, I'd love to own them but could only maybe afford them on a used purchase off Audiogon. Not this year but something to think about in the future.

I agree I think these are beautiful.
(disclosure- I also own the Rocket 850s )

These are my next speakers I hope to own one day.
They had them at the RMAF the last two years, and both years I thought they were one of the best sounding speakers. Plus I think they look great.

I love the studio 20s. Great speaker for different applications. I have the studio 60s. The new Studio v.5s look like the sigs.

My favorite out of my list is actually the Meyer Sound X-10s. I'm sure most of the people on this thread will think I'm nuts. For me, the engineering makes it beautiful. I hope to have them in my theater in 2 years. They're not cheap at $20k each, but you get a lot for your money. They're active, so you don't need external amplification. Free field: +/-2db 23hz to 17khz. Half space max SPL 136db @ 1m measured on axis with horn. Gotta love that. Well I do.

I agree with you on the Model 6. Probably the sexiest 600lb piece of art I've ever seen
