Paradigm Persona 9H

Persona™ is a showcase of vanguard materials and Paradigm’s most advanced audio technologies, all entirely Crafted in Canada. Engineered to “take on the persona” of your audio performance, each speaker virtually disappears behind an unprecedented level of realism and transparency. Whether you’re passionate about classic two-channel stereo, or an enveloping multi-channel home theatre system, Persona’s combination of innovation, performance and elegance introduces luxury in an indulgent new class of loudspeaker.

Designed, engineered, and Completely Crafted in Canada, Persona celebrates the technological abilities of Paradigm engineering, untamed. Its exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail makes a bold, beautiful statement. No other speaker in this class can match the performance innovation of Persona.

Persona 9H, the flagship of the Persona Series, is the best- sounding loudspeaker Paradigm have ever conceived.

Persona 9H features Truextent® Beryllium 1” tweeter and 7” midrange drivers, each with perforated phase-aligning lenses. This passive mid and high frequency section delivers more accurate wide-spectrum dynamics (from a detailed well-blended 40kHz down to a deep 500Hz) while remaining virtually transparent; your audio alone takes center stage.

The powered bass section utilizes Paradigm’s Ultra- High-Excursion Differential Drive 8.5” woofers in a balanced vibration-canceling configuration (two front-firing, two rear-firing). Each woofer pair is powered by a separate DSP-controlled 700 W RMS amplifier for a total of 1,400 W RMS (2,800 W Dynamic Peak), and combined with exclusive technology like Anthem Room Correction (ARC™) capability for precise optimization of bass performance for any listening environment.
