No doubt.

Knowing little about Paradigm these days, are the S8's the replacement for the Studio 100's? I know that "back in the day", I nearly bought a pair of S100's instead of my M80's. Went to a Paradigm dealer and demoed them. I remember thinking they were pretty amazing and only slightly more expensive than M80's. Was about to pull the trigger. Until I saw the "EACH" on the price tag. Oops. Nevermind.

Had the same experience with a set of Energy Veritas 2.4's. Really lovely. And hey, they're only $2,100/pair. Oh wait, "EACH". Dag nabbit. wink

Not a replacement. The S8's are from the Signature line...I think they are TWICE the price of the Studio line. I'd guess they are up around the $6-7 mark.

Last I looked the S8's were double the Studio line up and are very smooth and detailed.

Yowzers, the S8 system was $15,000 in 2008. Beautiful speakers though.

The Axiom design is eficient, but I do have a preference for something a bit more elegant, which is why the Axioms are in the HT and I have something else in the great room. The Opus on the lest has a simular shape, just a bit softer. But they arn't exactly cheap either. It's pretty hard to lable one better sounding than the other too.

I think the M80/60 and even the m50's could benefit from a custom base / stand. Something to give them a wider stance. It would at least make them look like they won't fall over.

Would like to see the M80's in shiny black sitting beside those, instead of the Boston Cherry.

Beautiful speakers Michael. That teardrop shape would be my choice for a new Axiom case.
