I have a soft spot in my heart for Paradigm. A few years back, I went to one of their demo rooms and chased out tons of perspective press folks with my choice of demo CD.
Sure, I know how to clear a room, and I also know how to rock a demo. They were super-nice about it, which left a great impression, but it was the killer sound that really caught my attention. Kissy-faces aside, I was pretty psyched to hear that they were adding three new speakers to their Signature series.
There’s the Signature S1 bookshelf, C1 center channel and ADP1 surround speakers. The company says that they all feature new, state-of-the-art P-Be pure-beryllium tweeter domes and CoIA Cobalt-infused pure-aluminum woofer cones. I am just guessing that they’re going to rock.
Here are some quickie company specs…
S1: Two-driver, two-way bookshelf; 6-inch mid/bass, 1-inch P-Be. $1,499 to $1,699 per pair. Available in piano black, natural birdseye maple.
C1: Four-driver, three-way center; 2 x 5.5-inch, 5-inch mid/bass, 1-inch P-Be. $1,199 to $1,299 each. Available in piano black, natural birdseye maple.
ADP1: Five-driver, three-way surround; 7-inch bass, 2 x 3.5-inch mid, 2 x 1-inch P-Be. $1,199 to $1,299 each. Available in piano black, natural birdseye maple.
I’ve still got that CD, guys… Guys?
