Paradigm Monitor Centre 1
It took three emperors and 15 years to build Rome’s colosseum, architecture that still elicits awe centuries later. And while Paradigm are not so bold as to compare the colosseum to the new Monitor Series, you have to admit the speakers look more than a little awesome in the backdrop of Ancient Rome. Good architecture will stand up well over time, as will good sonic architecture. Paradigm’s Monitor Series is a classic example. Now in its seventh iteration, each new generation is an opportunity for refinement: design innovations from their higher-priced reference lineups, reference-quality component parts, cabinets and even finishes! When it comes to getting value for your money, it doesn’t get better than Monitor Series. Since its inception, the Monitor Series has been a favorite of audiophiles on a budget — with Monitor Series, that hasn’t changed.
Paradigm can’t promise it will still be around in two thousand years, but they can promise it will play louder, plumb deeper, look smarter and sound better than any other brand in its price range!
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Bass/Midrange Cones. First seen in the Paradigm Reference lineup, very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. In an affordable audio category – unbelievable quality!
Advanced Carbon-Infused Injection-Molded Polypropylene Bass Cones. The high mineral content and injection-molding process have created a durable and rigid cone with affords Paradigm bragging rights for cone consistency and repeatability.
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes with powerful neodymium magnets and ferro-fluid cooling for increased power handling! Highs are more soaring and spacious, crystal clear and undiluted even at the higher bandwidths.
Wire Mesh Tweeter Guard and WaveGuide™. More Reference technology, ensuring a smooth, wide panorama of audiophile-quality sound. Wire mesh protection for the pure-aluminum tweeter.
Sophisticated crossovers in an affordable audiophile product! Again, it’s almost unheard of: polypropylene film or bipolar electrolytic capacitors, air core and laminated core inductors, high-power resistors. Crossover topologies are first and second-order with corresponding acoustic slopes of second and third-order providing optimal bandwidth and seamless integration as drivers cross over.
Foam-Rubber Elastomer Surrounds. Reference Studio Series geometry!
Help achieve that play loud AND play deep effect by allowing longer, expertly controlled cone trave
