Default Are these speakers any good?

Does this sound like a good deal for $995?

Paradigm Monitor 7 speakers, with CC 350 Centerchannel, ADP 350 Surrounds and a powered Subwoofer PW2200. 6 units in all. These speakers are for the serious audiophile (or for someone who wants the absolute best audio) Originally paid $1,815 for the complete set. All wood cabinets in Black Ash. If you want life-like concert or theater experience, these are for you. Only Serious Inquires Only. Prefer those that live nearby so that you can see that these are in excellent condition (like new). Wife says I must sell!

Paradigm is excellent.
that's the brand I chose for my upgrade.
I can't speak for that exact package though.
there are 5 levels at Paradigm.
I would at least get Monitor or above.
the lowest is cinema.

As others have said, they are good speakers. How old are they? Monitor has been in the market for close to 20 years with varying versions. If they are fairly new, they should be good.

BTW - these are not "audiophile" speakers but they do an awesome job in the HT department.

Its looks like they are 10 years old because this review is from 1999. I don't think I want 10 year old speakers. http://www.soundstage.com/video/reve...orspeakers.htm

Excellent speakers I've heard these in a showroom before and they were tight.

There were numerous versions of these speakers. They could be anywhere from a year old to 15. You need to find out from the seller.

I considered those for a time, looked like a really good package. Ended up with polks instead, but I think you'd be happy with those.
