It all started in the early 80’s my 1st pair of Paradigm speakers.
I’ll go back to my last purchase 2007 My Paradigm Signature S8 v2’s
I was here in Montreal looking for a new set of Speakers to upgrade from Paradigm Monitor S9 to something New and very Special.
At Codell Audio he had a Pair of Signature S6v2 hooked up to a Moon amp of 300watts or so. The sound was pretty good I just wanted to hear more of everything. He played as well a pair of Dynaudio & Spendor speakers … I don’t know who to explain it but a …
A 4 ohm speaker does not sound to my ears want they want to hear.
It is a artificial sound that is not natural. My ears do not enjoy feeling that these type of speakers are trying to sing…….
So the following week I called the Rep at Paradigm here in Montreal asking who had a Pair of his Top of the line in stock Signature S8v2’s …that I could hear
He told me there was one Dealer in Ottawa that had a Pair in Stock.
So I Drove up … I don’t remember the name it’s Sound something…
The sales he pulled out a Pair of Totem Wind speakers.. this sales guy so excited to show them to me…….His attitude was great I should of hired him to work for me !!!
Anyway I let me play his Totem Wind speakers … He had them connected to a pair of mono 250watt Macintosh amps……. Ouch my ears did not want to hear that 4 ohm sound again….
So Finally he hooked up the Paradigm Signature S8v2 .. it was a easy move the speakers were side by side… the Wind Speakers..
The Paradigms just opened the Room, There was presence the sound stage was open, The highs were clean the bass tight the thunder oh that thunder.. The speakers were not bi wired. I knew if these speakers would be Bi wired they would sound even Better.
Finally his price was way out in the field…… he wanted over 10K. When I went back to Montreal that day I drove to Codell Audio and I purchased them for 40% less then what the sales guy in Ottawa tried to get out of Me ….
