Paradigm Premier 800F Tower and 500C Center Speakers Review | Audioholics

This speaker line poses two questions for this reviewer: how close do the Premier speakers get to the Persona speakers for only a fraction of the price? And how do these speakers fare in their own price class? Let's now try to answer those questions​ ...

Paradigm Premier 700F Speaker System Review | Sound & Vision

The Premier range is far from the most expensive in Paradigm's speaker lineup, but the performance and build quality that it offers lets it compete with speakers twice the price.

Paradigm Persona 5F loudspeaker | Stereophile.com

Since its founding in 1982, Paradigm has developed and sold high-value loudspeakers. When my wife and I acquired our weekend house in 1992, I selected a pair of Paradigm Esprit/BP speakers for our audio system there. Shortly thereafter, however, I wanted to take my big step into multichannel, and it seemed that the Esprits' bipolar radiation would present problems for multichannel sound in my relatively small room.

Paradigm Prestige 95F loudspeaker | Stereophile.com

Déjà vu all over again? Apart from being reminded of this Yogi-ism by the death, in September 2015, of its originator, I was all set to begin by commenting that this would be my first review for Stereophile of a Paradigm loudspeaker. But—the recent online posting of my June 1992 review of Paradigm's Studio Monitor took me back.

Paradigm Premier Series Speaker System Reviewed

Dylan says that if you're looking to upgrade your sound experience over a soundbar or HTiB, but don't want to break the bank, the Paradigm Premier series should be on your audition list due to good design and trickle-down technology. ...

SoundStage! Access | SoundStageAccess.com (GoodSound.com) - Paradigm Premier 100B Loudspeakers

I recently reviewed Paradigm's Mointor SE 3000F  floorstanding loudspeaker, and though it had shortcomings, I was impressed by what its price of $698/pair (all prices USD) bought in terms of physical quantity of speaker and audible quality of sound. Now I've got my hands on Paradigm's Premier 100B minimonitors, which are tiny in comparison but cost $100 more per pair. I expected less bass output from the Premier 100Bs, of course -- but other than that, I wasn't sure what to expect.

The Paradigm Premier 200B is a recent entrant in the crowded field of $1000-ish loudspeakers designed for home listening.

Paradigm Premier 200B Speaker Review | Reference Home Theater

The 200B is the top bookshelf speaker in the Paradigm Premier lineup. It is equipped with a 1" dome tweeter and a 6.5" midrange/bass driver and a quick look shows the influence of the Persona speakers. Both drivers include their Phase Aligning Lens to block out of frequency sounds and, as the name suggests, improve phase alignment. The top of the cabinet is different than most speakers, reminding me more of the Martin Logan Dynamo 800X subwoofer I recently reviewed but it appears to be there for style. It gives a bit of a hollow echo when rapped with your knuckles but the rest of the cabinet is very solid and heavy enough that they take some effort to move.

Reign of the Mini-Monitors II: Paradigm Premier 200B - Dagogo

My first encounter with Paradigm was in 1992, about ten years after the company made its start just outside of Toronto, Canada. I wanted an inexpensive but decent sounding pair of bookshelf speakers for a second system that would go in a bonus room office above the garage. So I did what audiophiles usually did in the previous century, I got in my car and drove down to my local audio shop. Sam and Ed of Audio Solutions were always ready to greet me when I walked through the doors. The Atom was the newest model from Paradigm that they had in stock, but the more substantial Titan was only a little more expensive and seemed the better value given the relatively large space I had planned for them.

SoundStage! Hi-Fi | SoundStageHiFi.com - Paradigm Premier 800F Loudspeakers

After many years of producing, basically, the same few lines of loudspeakers, Paradigm recently revamped almost its entire range of hi-fi speaker models. Except for the Atom, the naming convention used for the new Monitor SE series is entirely different from that of the previous line, and comprises fewer models -- and completely gone are the venerable Studio and Signature lines, now replaced by the intermediately priced Prestige line. Of course, change can be good -- built into Paradigm's tour-de-force model, the Persona 9H, is a powered subwoofer as well as Anthem Room Correction; the 9H and other Persona models offer state-of-the-art performance at prices that are reasonable by high-end standards. I was a bit disappointed to see the costlier but still high-value Studio and Signature lines retired, but the new designs, including the budget Monitor SE series, incorporate many cutting-edge technologies trickled down from their top models.
