If the radio audio sounds clean at one point and is distorted once 
leaving the radio, I would check connecting cables for a bad ground. 
This if present could cause RF feedback and distort the audio.  Had this 
once with TT rig feeding a SWR meter and another coax feeding the tuner. 
  It was one of the short coaxes.  On your Paragon, being and older rig, 
maybe one of the grounding screws has oxidation or worked loose.  On 
older radios, it pays to once a year or so, loosen each grounding screw 
to chassis and re-tighten to break oxides.

At least is is something you can do before calling TT.
