I've had these...

For over two years I've been enjoying this speaker.  Very happy to see them get some priase in a publication like this one.  HUGE difference over the v.4 as stated in the review (which wasn't a bad desing in it's own right).  Great all-around speaker especially if matched with good electronics.

20 V.5

   Got a pair a few months ago for my third system . I had it narrowed down to three pair but thanks to Bobs great review I went with the Paradigm's . Thanks Bob .

  After listening to them for a few months then rereading the review I can confirm that Bobs sonic description was accurate . 

I tried them with quite a few amps before settling on a 200 watt Luxman that I retired a bunch of years ago . At first I felt that the 20's were not capable of playing loud and clean but once I had them properly driven that was not a concern . Also tried a bunch of speaker cables before being content with Cardas's new Clear cable . Great match .
