First Listen: Paradigm Special Edition 5.1-Channel Speaker System | AVguide

Chris Martens of AVguide.com opened the boxes of his SE System and listened to them for the first time. Here's what he had to say...

"Personally I've tried to address the what-you-want vs. what-you-can-afford gulf by becoming a specialist, of sorts, in overachieving, high-value, high performance components and in that vein one of my favorite go-to resources is the Canadian speaker manufacturer Paradigm. Those guys are, in my view, experts at speaking the language of A/V value. A perfect case in point would be the Paradigm Special Edition series speakers that The Perfect Vision recently received for review."

He then went as far as to say "I was wowed to hear (even on limited surround channel information) how full and rich the SE 1s seemed to be. It's purely an intuition or instinct on my part, but I can't help but feel that when surround speakers sound impressive right out of the box, the rest of the system may be likely to follow in the same path. We shall soon see, and it will be fun to see how the Special Edition system's sound evolves with further break-in... Stay tuned for a full review in The Perfect Vision."
