    I think a Paragon would make a really cool looking stand for a giant (>70") HDTV. No need for a center channel

    I suspect I may be the only one the feels that way.


    Good luck with the restoration and don't forget to treat us to a few photos of your progress.

    Got the backs off and the drivers out(LE15h). Someone definitely used about 8 spots of glue on each back. Had to be super careful and use a very thin blade to pry them off. Time to order up the surrounds! And still looking for a good amp/pre amp combo to power it

    Beautiful
    Always so nice to see them after they've been sealed away and protected all these years in a nice wooden box
    So crisp and pristine
    You are very lucky to have this speaker system

    I am interested to know though, who'd you lose to get it?

    Looks quite repairable. I'd have someone do it right (experience, stable hands, right equipment) to keep the value up. I'd also (personally) match it with well-gone-through vintage components... By vintage I mean of a similar year or earlier... my idea of fun. Someone else might match up new gear and be happy.
    Worth going upstream from an HT receiver at any rate Very fun piece to own.

    My thoughts were also to try to match it up with something from the 70's or early 80's as I think it would be really cool to see everything all from the same time period. You would not believe that it was actually hooked up to a newer home theatre amp where it used to be located. I'm planning on hopefully doing it some justice. I didn't have to lose anyone to inherit it fortunately, just happened to be a fortunate recipient of some great generosity since the nice relative I received it from knew I would set it up properly.
