"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."
