Persona 7F Named as Speaker this Reviewer would Buy, Sound Unheard

"I’d love to see the stats: How many audiophiles in 2016 bought parts of their system -- or their entire system -- online or over the phone, without ever having heard the component(s)? I know from the letters I receive that many of you do, if only out of necessity. The number of dealers stocking high-end audio gear has shrunk over the years, and sometimes it’s just not feasible to hear the component you’re considering buying before you actually buy it. And comparing two different brands side by side -- the two specific brands you’re most interested in -- is often next to impossible. Many dealers carry only a few brands, and typically complementary rather than competing brands."

"The speakers I recommend are the new Paradigm Persona 7F ($25,000 USD per pair), the next-to-top model of the Persona line. The very top Persona is the 9H, which has an active bass section with four 8.5” woofers. The fully passive 7F has a 1” beryllium-dome tweeter and, surprisingly, a 7” beryllium-cone midrange. The bass range is handled by two 8.5” woofers -- half the number in the 9H -- that must be powered by your own amplifier. Although I love the thought of the active bass in the 9H, a pair of them costs $10,000 more and I suspect that the 7F would produce plenty of low end for most folks in most rooms. Plus, a lot of people like the more conventional passive approach, because that’s what they’re used to. And that’s OK. Being a large three-way speaker, the 7F should be able to handle practically anything you throw at it, including doing double duty with movies and music. I hear that you can get them in blue -- Aria Metallic Blue, to be specific. That’s what I’d choose."

"Music to my ears" - Mark Henninger's Review of the Paradigm PW Amp

We're excited to share this review of the Paradigm PW Amp, from AVS Forum's Mark Henninger.

“The Paradigm PW Amp was music to my ears… Thanks to the combined power of DTS Play-Fi and ARC software, the feature set of the Paradigm PW Amp is remarkably deep."
"I can't commend Paradigm enough for providing the flexibility in bass management and room EQ that ARC affords; this is the only networked amp I am familiar with that offers such sophistication, which is crucial if you want to achieve true high-fidelity. I also applaud the company's choice to go with DTS Play-Fi since that ecosystem encompasses products from many companies, unlike the proprietary systems offered by some other vendors."

Persona, our new flagship lineup, debuted at CEDIA 2016, to rave reviews!


“…[Y]ou want to experience these speakers, for they have the power to evoke emotions like nothing I have ever heard before. Loud surround is simple. Imaging and transformational sound is not.” - Heather L. Sidorowicz, ResidentialSystems.com


I had a chance to listen to some tracks through a pair of Persona 9H’s, including Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Tin Pan Alley,” Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street,” and Daft Punk’s “Giorgio by Moroder.” The speakers handled the challenges of the acoustically difficult meeting room with aplomb. ARC smoothed out the bass response from the two speakers, and with a total of eight 8.5-inch differential-drive woofers pumping the air, they had plenty of depth and impact. Imaging was as good as it gets, which is usually the case with well-designed top-tier speakers.” - Mark Henninger, AVSForum.com


We quickly realized that these are speakers we'd want to take a closer listen to in our own listening space.” - Gene DellaSala, Audioholics.com


“I enjoyed a fantastic demo that featured some of the most detailed recordings I’ve heard. The transparency and resolution seemed almost without limit. The goal of Paradigm’s five-year development was to minimize distortion. To my ears, they’ve eliminated it. I look forward to seeing these speakers measured because they presented nothing but clean neutral sound.” - Christian Eberle, Hometheaterhifi.com

Subwoofers, Part 4: Please enjoy responsibly: With high power comes deep bass.



Power. Some of us have it. We all want it. When we finally get some, we always want more, don't we? What are we talking about here? Subwoofers. Bass. Big, deep, omnidirectional, stomach-rumbling low frequencies. The only way to achieve it, is to have the power it takes to make it.

We're talking about subwoofer amplification, the clean, constant power that relentlessly moves the cone and the motor on the voice coil of the speaker we love. At Paradigm, we want to give you the power (in every sense of the word) to indulge your deepest-downest, lowest bass fantasies and desires.

Hit the jump to get a little subwoofer refresher, which will make it clear how we believe power fits into the subwoofer puzzle. We’ll dish a little about the innovation we came up with to deliver more extreme subwoofer power, more efficiently, than practically anyone out there.

Subwoofers, Part 3: Rubik's Cube of Bass



Bass is the easy part, isn't it? Just move a big driver, and like magic: low frequencies come out. That equation was fine for big 80s boomboxes, but it doesn't explain serious bass response and why it's important for you and for your sound system. 

At Paradigm, we have our own ideas about bass. We've studied the issue for over 30 years. We've come up with some improvements, defeating many of the issues that get in the way of producing low frequency response. And we've come up with some ways to improve on those improvements using better technology both inside the subwoofer enclosure, and out. 

So you know we make subwoofers for every application, now hit the jump to find out how Paradigm bass is different from other species of bass.

"It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen and it definitely looks like it means business..." - Carlo Lo Raso


We are pleased to share a fantastic review of the Paradigm Prestige 2000SW that was just published! 

"A well designed and very attractive looking sealed subwoofer with an imposing 15-inch aluminum driver and a 2000-watt class D amplifier, the 2000SW is looking to be more than just a generic thumping black box in your living room. The addition of PBK also attempts to add a new level of integration and more consistent sound quality to the mix."





"The overall sound quality coming from the Paradigm subwoofer was excellent, particularly with music. It reproduced detailed notes and bass lines with resounding clarity and an admirable lack of distortion. For all practical purposes, one of the 2000SW subwoofers was able to produce more than enough output to energize my room, pretty effortlessly, down to just about 20 Hz before a fairly steep roll off of the signal. Although I’ve had subwoofers that have played flat down to about 10 Hz in this room, very few of them have sounded as clean as this Paradigm has in its given operating range." —Carlo Lo Raso

Subwoofers, Part 2: ALL OUR BASS ARE BELONG TO YOU



How important is a subwoofer? Without a subwoofer, you have no Jaco Pastorius or Bootsie Collins, no exploding Death Star, and no cello concerto. So, for a full-spectrum dynamic audio experience, you really need to include a subwoofer in your listening plans. 

We love bass. We live for the lows. Being moved by big bass is fun. It gets everyone onto the dance floor (even if the dance floor is your living room) and it nails you to your seat during a movie. You need a sub. 

Don't have a sub yet? Don't think you have the room, worried about what the neighbors will think, satisfied with just your mids and highs? Take the jump and we'll show you three compact subwoofers made especially to fit the bass needs of smaller rooms and apartments, and more.

Subwoofers, Part 1: You need a better reason to come back to our Blog.

We recently used this blog to introduce you to Paradigm's new Prestige Series of high-powered subwoofers. You know: "Louder. Lower frequency. Lower distortion. Gut-wrenching power!"

Since then, this blog has been one big award and one great review after another. Hey, we're tooting our own X-PAL Tweeters here, so to speak. But we'd understand if you're beginning to feel that our bragging is getting dry. 

How about some information you can really use? Maybe even an opportunity to -- most important -- learn something that helps you get better performance from your audio equipment? That's exactly what we've been thinking, too.

The First Paradigm Premium Wireless PW 800 Review by HD Living is a Winner!


HD Living recently review the Paradigm Premium Wireless PW 800 and gave it major kudos for it's acoustic ability, flexibility (thanks to ARC) and cosmetics! 



"Post Anthem Room Correction... its performance is pretty much flawless. What’s more, I found that ARC allowed me to get pretty wacky with positioning and still enjoy a really super sweet audio experience... I was a little shocked by just how well the PW 800 handled the wide, expansive stereo sound... with a little subwoofer attached, the PW 800 absolutely rocked my face off my skull... It’s gorgeously built, beautifully designed, and looks amazing on a tabletop or even on a larger bookshelf. Kudos to Paradigm for putting as much work into the style as they did the sound... I think Paradigm has one heck of a wireless speaker on its hands here... If you’ve written off wireless speakers as sub-par from a performance standpoint in the past, you owe it to yourself to find your local Paradigm dealer and hear the PW 800 for yourself." - Dennis Burger

"Paradigm Prestige 1000SW is a reference quality subwoofer and comes highly recommended from Reference Home Theater" - Stephen Hornbrook


Another fantastic review of the Paradigm Speakers Prestige 1000SW has been published! 



"The Paradigm Prestige 1000SW performs brilliantly, especially given its smaller stature, is beautiful to look at and comes with their Perfect Bass Kit. Having the PBK included allows for simple, near automatic room tuning. Certainly not something you get with cheaper subwoofers. The Paradigm Prestige 1000SW is a reference quality subwoofer and comes highly recommended from Reference Home Theater." - Stephen Hornbrook

"Nobody puts baby in the corner! Paradigm's latest sub deserves to dance in the spotlight" - Caleb Denison of Digital Trends


"Nobody puts baby in the corner! Paradigm's latest sub deserves to dance in the spotlight" - Caleb Denison of Digital Trends talks about his first impressions of the Prestige 1000SW in this video review:





The 1000SW seen here is a powerful, punchy, and musical sub, with as much finesse as muscle, and as much class as sass. In terms of performance, we’d put it right in line with SVS’ incredible SB-13 Ultra, though if we had to take a pick between the two, we’d side with the Paradigm sub based on looks alone.” – Caleb Denison

"If aesthetics as well as build quality matter to you as much as sound quality...give Paradigm Prestige 85F a serious audition" - CANADA HiFi

Another fantastic review has been published on the Paradigm Prestige 85F! This time from CANADA HiFi Magazine! 


"Aesthetically I could not fault the 85F. It is easily one of the most sleek and elegant speakers you can buy in this price category and the wife acceptance is likely to be very high. I find it hard to imagine any décor that they would not just complement but actually enhance... If you are in the market for a pair of speakers... and if aesthetics as well as build quality matter to you as much as sound quality, you would be well advised to give the Paradigm Prestige 85F a serious audition. Chances are good, you will be seduced into make these sonic babies a treasured part of your music system!" - Malcolm Gomes

Everything Audio Network reviewed the Prestige 15B bookshelf speaker and gave it "One Big Stellar Sound Award"! 


"The Paradigm Prestige 15B compact small speaker is a serious audiophile speaker... Within 10 feet of the listening position, these speakers are extremely articulate with excellent stereo imaging and depth. Many of my reference hi-res tracks were impressively showcased through the Prestige 15B pair; many tracks sounded as good as through some $8,000 speakers I have tested... I can’t think of one negative about these speakers. One big Stellar Sound Award for a pair of impressive, small speakers." - John Gatski

Paradigm Reveals Concept 4F Speakers at Munich High End Show and Proves Nothing is Off Limits



This bold new concept, unveiled at Munich High End 2015, offers an exciting glimpse into the future of Paradigm engineering.

The Paradigm & Anthem engineering teams have been working with a vision for more than five years. This journey of research, experiment, design, and development has culminated in a loudspeaker that is the amalgamation of superior acoustic components with bleeding-edge technological innovation. It is our most ambitious speaker design ever.

Concept 4F is a true full-range hybrid loudspeaker, the perfect balance of powered woofers with a passive upper register array. It features TruExtent® Beryllium 1" tweeters and TruExtent® Beryllium 7" midrange drivers with perforated phase-aligning lenses, and four Ultra-High-Excursion Differential Drive 8.5" woofers in a vibration-cancelling configuration (two front-firing, two rear-firing). Each woofer pair is powered by a separate DSP-controlled 700 W RMS amplifier for a total of 1400 W RMS (2,800 W Dynamic Peak), and combined with exclusive technology like Anthem Room Correction (ARC™) capability. And then some.


The result is a unique sonic platform that reinvents luxury performance in a loudspeaker and ushers in an audacious new era for Paradigm.

Under development for more than five years, the Concept 4F sounded exceptional in a brief demo, with astounding bass extension and definition coupled to neutral, detailed, and transparent midrange and treble reproduction.”  

- Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound 

This is a serious speaker from a serious company. It might have started out as a toe-in-the-water concept, but given the response at the show, I think it’s safe to say that Paradigm will be moving upmarket -- pretty soon and with a product that looks very like the Concept 4F. How far upmarket? It’s impossible to say, but don’t think that this speaker will be cheap, although I’m confident that what it will do is maintain the company’s reputation for value. It goes straight to the top of the “speakers I’d love to get my mitts on” list.” 

- Roy Gregory, The Audio Beat

"Paradigm’s Concept 4F was, by a long shot, the star loudspeaker of High End 2015… the Concept 4F’s beautiful appearance is a higher rung on that ladder. I particularly liked the way the rear of the cabinet rises, supported on something like the heel of a high-heeled shoe. The vents for the rear-mounted woofers (see below) create nice visual touches of their own. But it’s on the technical side that the Concept 4F really stands out. Visually, technically, and sonically, I was blown away by the Concept 4F. Look for info on the sound in this space in August.” 

- Doug Schneider, SoundStage! Network

Paradigm Prestige 15B, 45C and Seismic 110 earn 5 Star Reviews & Sound & Vision Top Pick Awards

We are incredibly proud to share that the Paradigm Speakers Prestige 15B, Prestige 45C and Seismic 110 sub received 5 stars and "Top Pick" awards from Sound & Vision in the first 5.1 Prestige review! 



"The Paradigm Prestige series combines state-of-the-art design, ingenious engineering, and superb build quality with voicing that I found cinematically and musically unerring. Speakers that allow me one-setting enjoyment of action movies, with no dynamic range control intervention, are rare. Speakers that beat my reference system on orchestral material are rarer. But speakers that do both are practically unheard of. I learned a lot—and had a lot of fun—with the Prestige in my listening room. And living with the Seismic 110 sub continues to be a joy."

"The Prestige 95F presses all of the right buttons" - Dennis Burger, Home Thaeater Review

Home Theater Review published their review of the Paradigm Prestige 95F and it is epic! Epic as in 5 STARS and endless praise from esteemed writer and reviewer, Dennis Burger!


"There are so many things about the Paradigm's Prestige 95F floorstanding speaker that are worthy of discussion... But the fact of the matter is that, when I sit down in front of these speakers, I simply forget about all of it. For that matter, given a recording of sufficient fidelity, I forget about the speakers altogether most of the time. I can't tell you that this is exactly what you should look for in a passive loudspeaker. I won't tell you you're wrong if your tastes lean in other directions. But for me, the Prestige 95F presses all of the right buttons."

New York Times Recommends a short list of Soundbars including the Paradigm Soundscape

The New York Times recommends sound bars as an easier alternative to home theater systems and suggests the Paradigm Soundscape. 


"Paradigm’s $1,500 Soundscape includes four built-in low-frequency speakers for deep bass. For those who would still like to use an external subwoofer, a wireless receiver is included that attaches to any existing subwoofer unit. At 42 inches in length, the 20-pound Soundscape offers rich bass and crisp sound. When I tested it, I heard music that I had been missing from my TV’s internal speakers. Two listening modes are offered: one for surround-sound movies and another for two-channel music."

"The new Prestige Series is a beautiful speaker, the design and aesthetic are superb, and I can’t imagine anyone not wanting them on view in their living space. Every detail is well thought out... Sound is unmistakable Paradigm; the imagining is superb, dynamics are clean throughout without any midrange coloration... The bass drivers blew me away with how articulate and extended they sounded. But I loved how smooth and integral the bass was represented... I’ve heard many, many speakers in this price range recently, but the Prestige 85F is more than a competitor, it leads." - Piero Gabucci

"Thin is in!" - Secrets of Home Theater on the Paradigm Millenia LP2 and Millenia LP XL

The first review of the Paradigm Millenia LP 2 and LP XL has been published and it's a keeper!


"I felt the Millenia LP speakers performed better than I was expecting and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends. They looked beautiful on the walls, provide high quality sound and were easy to set up... if looks, sound quality and especially space saving are qualities that are important to you, the Millenium LPs are worth your consideration. I think you’ll be impressed with what 2 inches can sound like. Fat may be where it’s at, but this thin is in!" - Jim Milton

Digital Trends Recommends Paradigm Soundtrack 2 to make your TV Sound as Big as it Looks

Digital Trends wants to help you make your TV sound as big as it looks and to do so, they suggest some excellent sound bar systems including our very own Paradigm Soundtrack 2!



From Digital Trends...

"As the modern “less is more” aesthetic gains popularity, sound bars have become a coveted item among home theater enthusiasts. The advantage of this option is that it lends itself to a sleek, unobtrusive look, while bolstering the anemic sound systems of many modern TVs. Of late, the move to ultra-thin, clean styling has left less and less space for speakers, as manufacturers favor stunning visuals over heart-stopping sound."

"Fortunately, the best sound bars can give you both. These space-saving speakers are now self-powered and provide their own amplification. As such, there’s no need to carve out space for a home theater receiver, making the bars a logical fit for those with limited space. Boxy floor-standing speakers just aren’t practical when square footage is at a premium. Whatever your reason for going the sound bar route, you’ll want to make sure you choose the brand and model that best suit your entertainment system."

An Inside Look at the New "Crafted in Canada" Prestige Series from Paradigm Speakers

Late 2014, we opened our doors to a handful of a/v journalists to show them how our new Prestige Series is "Crafted in Canada". As a result, one beautiful video and five fantastic articles were published. Take a look!

Dennis Burger, HD Living:
"...manufacturing is usually such an ugly, industrial process. Even the most beautiful final products go through their gangly, awkward phases as they’re being refined from raw materials to final product. But there’s something about the Paradigm process that runs contrary to this. Even in such a raw, folded states, the blocks of wood that would eventually be sanded and sprayed and filled with electromechanical components to become a Prestige speaker were tantalizingly beautiful in and of themselves. And indeed, as those little monoliths pass through different hands as they travel around the factory, they retain an essential beauty during each step of the process. I’m sure that’s not intentional. But it makes me appreciate the final product even more."

"Paradigm is one of those rare companies that doesn’t seem to be standing in its own way. One arm
is offers Shift products (headphones, soundbars, and powered speakers) and the other arm is creating high-end luxury speakers. The result is one great big hug of outstanding audio. They’re playing the game from both angles instead of fighting the trends of the world (great soundbars while building better speakers). With the finest ingredient and great care for the process. It appeared to me that Paradigm has created a recipe for success."


"There are many other benefits to making the product in Canada. The company has control over all phases of manufacturing. For instance, it's able to wind voice coils and crossover inductors with exactly the right number of turns of wire. Having R&D and manufacturing in one building compresses the engineering process. For example, engineering staff can make a prototype basket for a driver on a 3D printer, then build up the entire driver and system, then evaluate performance in the anechoic chamber. Early on, it looks like the Prestige Series is a hit."


"If I ever had to describe Canada’s most significant trait, I’d say it is modesty. Not in the bashful or
apologetic kind of way, but rather in the quiet, proud confident way. In fact, Paradigm’s new moniker is “Crafted in Canada” instead of the more boastful, “Made in Canada” (or North America). Canadian modesty precludes boasting about an accomplishment; they’d rather show you than tell you. That’s what comes to mind when I look at the new Prestige speaker line and the impressive home of Paradigm in Mississauga, a neighboring city to the metropolis of Toronto, Ontario. It was a treat to tour the facility, watch the process of design, fabrication, and assembly of the Prestige Series."

"There is no question that Paradigm is exceedingly proud that the new Prestige Series is crafted in Canada.  Developing a new speaker range that offers the same amount of visual value and the same amount of performance, if not better, than competing brands that are made in China was quite difficult but the Paradigm engineering team rose up to the occasion.  Paradigm estimates that its cost to produce the speakers locally is somewhere between 20 and 30 more than it would be compared to manufacturing in China... One thing is for certain – we can’t wait to get our hands on these speakers so that we can put them through our series of listening tests."
