    Default Crazy bid...lost speakers

    Holy smokes, I lost the Paradigm Studio 100's. Some a-hole bid $2175!!!...He was $125 away from a brand new pair of V.3!!!

    Idiot. Oh well.

    One thing I have learned in the last year of searching for new speakers, there's nothing this side of $1500 that I would buy (aside from the Paradigm Studio 100) to replace my Athena's. That's saying alot about a $600 speaker (now $399).

    Power Amp: Parasound HCA-1500A
    Speakers: Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 Monitor
    Subwoofer: SVS PB12-NSD

    I have looked at the pardadigm speakers before and I agree. The used prices are so close to the new prices you have to wonder why anyone purchases them used.....

    A couple of other brands to think of (if you are willing to go used and up to $1,500.)

    Magnepan
    Vandersteen

    Both have excellent examples on sale on audiogon for under your $1500 cap. If you have a dealer near you, they may be worth at least a listen.

    Other than that, Good luck on your search.

    Rats! Those were local too. Could have saved a bunch on shipping. There are some really ignorant Ebay bidders out there. I don't think they have a clue about researching products.
