    REALLY sorry I insulted the garbage trucks, tho, nobody
    deserves being compared to the CANADIAN MENACE.
    the Canadians can build as many speakers as they want, they might get one right sooner or later.
    KINDA sad, really, when the motto for your national speaker industry is that you're better than the CHINESE.

    So now you have heard every CA made speaker and have deemed that they all suck?

    Ugh, just saw you went with more Paradigms :-( I would have gone for one of these 5 choices choices brought up in this thread (Dynaudio, PSB, Totem, Silverline and Salk.) We must have very different ears. At least you found something you like but I would have been interested to see how you thought some other options fared in your room against the Studio's.

    Cool

    There is nothing wrong with CANADIAN speakers if you can't do any better, really, and I had a great experience with some top of the line Axioms. JUST trying to get a rise out of some who think PARADIGM
    is the end all be all.
    I have an old set of B&W loudspeakers built by people who care.
    And got conned into buying a complete set of Klipsch when
    speaker upgrade time came around, and the Chinese made
    speakers were not of the same q as the ones displayed in the store. BETTER than the PARADIGMS I auditioned, tho.
    I PAID over three grand for these, and traded even to get my B&W
    set back. A VERY MUSICAL SPEAKER that re-ignited my
    love for music when I bought them the first time
    There is just so much stuff out there that costs just as much as
    really good stuff, so why not buy the good stuff?
    Not that that is so easy to do, what with the dismantling of
    western civ going on. Sure I have my share of CHINESE
    equipment, but the people doing this have no love for the audiophile. CAN'T we have just a few items made by craftsmen
    who care that cost less than a MALIBU beach house?
    Really. The only hope we have are Chinese audiophiles.

    Hey Pedro. Enjoy your Paradigms. And if you're still even around these parts, ignore Pix. Apparently he's off his meds again.

    Good choice on the Paradigms! I tried some of the others listed. Meh. Paradigms sounded better and cost less.

    This just reeks of ethnocentrism.
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    I just registered to say that this Pixel**** guy is a big idiot. Way to poo-poo on a great thread, knucklehead.

    I'm sure you gonna say you are entitled to express your opinion but the way you expressed it clearly shows you wanted to trash this thread.

    I found this thread because I'm shopping and am interested in the speakers. It was a joy to read the thread until your posts, which add nothing to the thread.

    Forums don't need idiots like you.

    Oh, by the way, what's with that retarded way of yours of delimiting your text?

    Welcome to AudioReview! Like family you cannot pick only the members you want. Oh and speaking of sensitivity let us not use the R word. Retarded is a word that is hurtful to some.
