Paradigm speakers

I've been looking at upgrading my front 3 L-C-R speakers to the Paradigm Prestige series. Might go with some second hand 15B's for the L-R to save a decent amount of money over buying new. That being said, if a dealer could give me really good pricing on new 15B's or even 75F's, maybe even open box, floor models, etc. I would be interested. I am for sure doing the 55C center whether I go second hand or new on the L-R.

Just wondering if anyone has had positive experiences with any specific dealer that sells Paradigm online in Canada.

I guess try Gibby's here in Niagara Area in Ontario. They do shipping. They seem to grown to be a pretty big player in Electronics A/V.

ended up calling them on the weekend, their quote was actually way higher then the one local place for paradigm here, plus would have to pay shipping on top of that. Only benefit is 5% tax instead of 12%

You might want to check these out

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-speakers/sarnia ... pp_android

Price: $ 300
List price on the 15B's is $850 each, doubt the OP is looking to buy 15-20 year old Monitor series speakers =)

Think I received 20-25% off list when I bought my Studio 60 V5 pair + cc690, but that local store has been gone for years :(

I had bought a used pair of 5 SE MKII's almost 20 years ago, you're right!

Yea, it looks like the dealer pricing I can get here might be the best way to go if I do paradigm - 30% off MSRP for the 55C and 25% off for the 15B's or 75F's, although that much discount is only for the black walnut finish. I think once I can sell my current Focal's I'll try and talk them down to do 30% off on the 75F and go that route.
