"...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
"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
"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."
