    Umm... NO! Anything you put on top of it would be shaken off from the vibrations!

    BEAUTIFUL furniture, though.

    "Just Passin thru"
    There are rumors that Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin acquired three Paragons each-one for each left, center, and
    right channels- with which they used to monitor there master tapes.
    There were only about 1000 units produced in there 25 year life. Designed by Arnold Wolf and introduced in 1957 and continued
    until 1983 by JBL.

    Here is a great read on reproducing the D44000 Paragon in miniature,
