Ontario - Paradigm completely redesigned the technology and cosmetics of its Monitor
Series 7 speakers, reducing the sizes of the floor standers and center channels
but preserving the series' acoustic signature, the company said.
The series also
features a more streamlined, more linear aesthetic, the company said. And the floorstander
and center speakers add greater sensitivity and deeper bass extension than
are 20 percent smaller than their predecessors, and the center channels are
smaller overall but not necessarily 20 percent smaller, a spokesperson said.
"We wanted the
highest possible performance in the smallest physical envelope while maintaining
the important Paradigm affordability difference," said product development
manager Paul Wojciechowski.
The line consists
of nine speakers ranging from compact monitors to floor-standing left-right
speakers priced from $199 to $799 each, two center channels at $379 and $599
each, and two surrounds at $279 and $399 each.
