Paradigm Announces v.5 Monitor Series Loudspeakers
Proprietary SuperDrive technology makes owners of this next-generation series proud to get loud.
I love Paradigm. Maybe it’s because they are the only company that ever allowed me to test out their products with my Pantera CDs (sorry I cleared that room, fellas!). Maybe it’s just because they make great products.
The v.5 is the company’s latest incarnation of its affordable high-end Monitor Series loudspeakers.
Paradigm’s SuperDrive technology boasts high efficiency with high output and ultra-low distortion. That means high-end sound with a low-end price tag.
A new 3-way design found on all the center channels boasts improved off-axis performance and extended dynamic range while also ensuring superb timbre matching in a multichannel music or movie setup.
Monitor Series v.5 replaces Performance Series v.4 and Monitor Series v.4; the model names Atom and Titan, however, will remain in the new series. Eleven speakers comprise the entire series lineup.
$249/pair to $1,199/pair
11 speakers comprise Monitor v.5 Series
H-PTD high-efficiency pure-titanium domes with redesigned tweeter WaveGuide
Carbon-infused bass cones control the lower bass frequencies
