Bottom Line:   
Paradigm Reference series are known for their solid bass and this one sure fits the description as well. Midrange is fairly smooth but certainly not up to par with other speakers of the same price. The same goes for the tweeter. Look at it this way...you will not listen to music for long period of times therefore doing something more constructive instead.

I don't dislike Paradigm. I just found them to be much too expensive for the sound quality that they deliver.

Bottom Line:   
I originally was planning to buy the studio 60s but after listening to them was not very impressed. I wanted to upgrade from studio 40s which were my front speakers. The new 60 v5 cones have been cut to 5-1/2 inch from 7 inch the clarity was good but thats about it. I went to another dealer to demo the 100s with some cds to compare against B&W speakers forgot model # but same price range. In my opinion the Paradigms blew them away. I ended up going back to the first dealer and ordered them from him as he gave me a good price "I think" less than $2500.00 + tax .Also demoed Martin Logan Monitor Audio Energy Dali speakers all were very good especially dali
Thease speakers are great for music and movies both. they have good full range base & mid range and the tweeter is from last years Signature series ;so I'm told,which I guess is a plus.The V5s new design is very appealing as is the finish. Bought thease in rosenut really nice. The only thing I worried about was would they sound as good in my living room as they did in the sound proof studio I heard them in being powered by a NAD amp.Well they do after about 35 to 40 hour break in period. Think I,m going to have thease a very long time.

Pro's great dynamic full range quality speaker
