Paradigm Unleashes a Perfect Storm of Sound at CEDIA EXPO 2009

September 23, 2009

Paradigm Electronics, an international leader in speaker design and manufacturing is bringing some serious sound to the show floor at CEDIA EXPO 2009.  With a new version of its award-winning Reference Signature Series, a new hybrid breed of speakers that’s borrowed the best from the Monitor and Reference Studio and a sonic bulldog of a subwoofer.  Paradigm is also announcing its famous Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1™) Room Correction System for every subwoofer in the Paradigm® collection. 

SE Series (Special Edition Collection)

  • Combining elements from the affordable audiophile-quality Paradigm line and higher-end Paradigm Reference line, the SE series speakers brings a new generation of affordable elegance to the company’s vast offerings.  Including the SE1 (bookshelf), SE3 (floorstanding), SE Sub and SE Center, the SE line will boast Paradigm’s SuperDrive technology, which combines very high efficiency with very high output and ultra-low distortion. The drivers represent a best of breed hybrid mix that includes high frequency drivers from the Paradigm Monitor Series and mineral-filled polypropylene bass/midrange drivers handed down right from the Paradigm Reference Studio Series. 

Reference Signature Series v.3

  • Third version of its flagship Paradigm® Reference Signature Series. Thousands of “no-holds-barred” Paradigm research and engineering hours went into developing the Signature Series v.3 speakers, which are the highest-output, most dynamic high-end loudspeakers ever produced.

Reference Seismic 110

  • The Reference Seismic 110 is a state-of the-art subwoofer in a diminutive form factor with every component designed specifically for this application. 
  • While designed to meet today’s demand for a small form factor in a subwoofer, don’t be fooled by the Seismic110’s diminutive proportions. It offers truly groundbreaking (and ground shaking!) performance. The soul of this little sonic bulldog is a unique implementation of the ultra-low-distortion split-coil drive woofer coupled with the muscle of an 850-watt RMS UltraClass D amplifier 

Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1™) Upgrade

  • Paradigm is thrilled to announce the availability of the Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1™) Room Correction System for every subwoofer in the Paradigm® collection. With PBK, the effects of room boundaries on bass quality are a thing of the past. This state-of-the-art bass perfecting system will analyze your favorite Paradigm subwoofer’s response in your room, and then set the correct equalization parameters to obtain optimal sound.

Anthem  

  • Anthem will be showcasing a turn-key solution for dealers that includes the powerful 50v/D2v processor and the highly anticipated BLX 200 Blu-ray player with Paradigm speakers supporting the audio.  Stop by for a ground shaking demo!
