Currently I am running a Yamaha HTR-5940 receiver and ran across a bundle deal at a pawn shop that included:
Sony 5 disc CD changer
Paradigm Studio 60 v2 set
Paradigm CC-370v.3 center channel
Polk PSW50 sub
Price on everyhting in the bundle was $1299...which is inflated of course as pawnshops do. I was taling with someone and commented on how they had been there forever (seen them there 6 months ago), she said they could go down really far on them talked to her manager and came back with $500 asking price
The receiver after looking it up didn't seem to offer anything over my current receiver, I could be wrong but mine is barely more powerful and THD is .06 on mine vs .08 on the integra... of course paper specs dont always mean much. BUT The receiver did have a REFURB tag on it... so even more of a let down possibly.
The Sub..... not sure how they paired it with this set but ok whatever, didnt seem to impressive spec wise (I'm buying an outlaw LFM-EX 1 soon)
The CD Changer I could care less really.....
But the speakers are what really piqued my interest. Everyhting I read on them seems to be good so far, but one thing does stand out, the fact that my amp and the amp that comes in the bundle are underpowered for them.
What was most dissapointing was that they didnt have the damned surrounds to go with the set!!!! I am a bit miffed but I might be able to get more off on them. We looked everywhere but couldn't find them! They went in the back and found the box for the remotes and wires and etc... but no surrounds.
However I think I could use that to my advantage and get them to go down more
I posted in the speakers area too on this, but am focusing mainly on the speakers there. I'm hoping to get them to split things up if the amp doesnt offer anything over my current one.
