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.
