We can compare anything to anything, I guess.
I have never heard a Pardigm speaker I liked and I have heard quite a great many ranging from the S8 to the in-walls at $599 ea. They're just not my thing. But, CLEARLY, they are lovely to the great many People that own them and enjoy them everyday.
The more I listen, setup, and demo, the more I am less enchanted with traditional dome speakers. The Martin Logan Montis is an absolutely lights out speaker when set up and powered properly. It goes for $10,000 a pair. The BG Radia FS-420 at $5,000 a pair is also a special speaker - but light on the bass, easilly corrected with subs. Bg Radia LA-600/800 in-walls rival speakers many many times their sticker price at around $10- $15,000 a set.
I just keep finding that as sources get better, the resolution and presentation out of PMD, Folded Motion, and Electrostatics are just undeniable.
