Description:Outstanding value!



Excellent smooth midrange, surprisingly deep extended bass, delicate highs that do not sound unnaturally bright.



I must caution that you will not hear these Paradigms at their best with mid-fi receivers, e.g., Kenwood's and Sony's (which I had my Phantoms hooked up to). It was not until I paired up the Paradigm Phantoms to an Onkyo Integra 919 THX receiver that I heard the full potential of these loudspeakers; perhaps there is room for even more performance potential that I have yet too realize.



I have been shopping with my cousin for loudspeaker systems. And, after listening to several different popular speakers, I realize now that a lot of them out on the market are over-rated and probably over-priced.



I used to be very interested in one particular brand and, after hearing their loudspeaker system at a high-end retailer, I didn't care for them anymore. Their sound quality didn't live up to their claims in ads and "rave " reviews.



I'll just stick to my Paradigm Phantoms that I got for $300.

They're not the monitor line and they don't thump, but other than that what's not to like? Great sound from fairly small and not too expensive towers.

1. Better than any of Bose-201/301, 'cause I benchmarked 'em when I was buying!

2. No good when I hooked it with so-so Sony AMP.
