Any Paradigm owners who switched from Energy to Paradigm?? I'm wondering if I switched to the Paradigm Studio 100 whether it would be a notable difference. My amp is a Rotel SS Class AB putting out 200 wpc. I like a good clean low end. Would be interested in your views. Only negative is that the Energy Reference Connoiseur go for $800 a pair and the Paradigm"s are in the $3000.00 +.

Consider shopping at canuckaudiomart.com, used[yourcity].com or [yourcity].kijiji.ca. Gently-used S60v4s should run ~$1,000 or less; S60v3s ~$800 or less. (I paid $1,100 for a mint-condition pair of S60v4s a little over three years ago.)

-- Edit --
A couple of ads currently on CAM:
- Studio 60v4 in Rosewood ($750)
- Studio 60v4 ($900)

Thanks!! I'm in Ottawa region and have been watching CAM to see what comes up. I'm going to be using speakers strictly for a 2 channel set-up. Hoping that I would get some responses from Paradigm owners that have had the Energy's to see if it is worthwhile to make that switch.

Thanks,

Chuck.

Yeah, sorry I can't provide you with an Energy-to-Paradigm perspective. I'm sure someone who can will chime in soon enough. smile.gif

I haven't compared them directly, but I've heard each briefly and have listened more to the Studio 60s and the Energy RC-30s and RC-50s.

The RC-70s are fairly warm and forgiving, with some excess mid- to upper-bass and smooth, but somewhat reduced highs.

The Paradigms are more neutral, but some may find them "bright" or a little harsh in comparison to the RC-70s.

If you like a speaker with lots of midbass and forgiving highs, go for the Energy. If you like a more neutral speaker with more relative high-frequency output, go for the Paradigms.

For every new thing I learn, I forget two things I used to know.
