Paradigm Reference MilleniaOne 5.1 Speaker System Earns "Best Compact Solution" Award
In October, Steven Stone of The Perfect Vision reviewed the Paradigm Reference MilleniaOne 5.0 speaker system matched with the MilleniaSub and wrote a raving review entitled "Metal Magic". Since then The Perfect Vision released the "Editor's Choice" awards for 2011 and we received an honorable mention in the "Home Theater Speaker Systems $2500 - $4599" category. The Paradigm Reference MilleniaOne 5.0 speaker system with MilleniaSub earned "Bet Compact Solution". See below for details...
"Paradigm’s MilleniaOne sat/sub system is the smallest member of the firm’s Reference-series group, which also include the much larger and more costly Studio-series speaker family, yet it plays bigger than it looks. Build quality, as you would expect of Paradigm Reference models, is very high with the MilleniaOne satellites featuring voice-matched S-PAL (satin-anodized pure aluminum) tweeters and mid/bass drivers housed in exquisite die-cast aluminum enclosures."
"Indeed, seamless driver integration and relative freedom from wood-box enclosure resonances are two of the key strengths of this system. But of equal importance is the sleekly styled and ingeniously designed, 300-watt MilleniaSub, which features two oblong woofer drivers arranged in a boxer-type vibration-cancelling configuration, and that is set up for use with Paradigm’s cool optional PBK (perfect bass kit) subwoofer/room EQ package. The slender MilleniaSub will, quite simply, fit where others won’t. Put these factors together and you have, as reviewer Steven Stone put it, “a flexible system that can produce music with exceedingly high fidelity in small urban spaces.”"
