Oh man, I haven't heard Paradigm speakers in years, time to give them another shot. How did they sound? Oh they sounded like someone put a big mesh grill in front of the drivers. How does this even get out of the brainstorming stage?
Hi Tyson, thanks for the reviews, was wondering if you got a chance to hear the new Ryan s840 floorstander?
Now, before you ask, I'll tell you up front. I went into every single room at RMAF and I spent at least one hour in every room thoroughly evaluating every aspect of performance. The systems that were good, I took a quick picture of. ALL of the other systems sounded shitty. So if you don't see your favorite vendor pictured below, well you can guess what I thought of it.
Thanks for these great photos, very nice job boys.These grids are for protection purposes only when the speakers are not in use
"Oh man, I haven't heard Paradigm speakers in years, time to give them another shot. How did they sound? Oh they sounded like someone put a big mesh grill in front of the drivers.

They do more science based R&D than most of the higher priced boutique loudspeakers that are out there and this speaker appears to be a huge value for the tech you get. I'd be highly surprised if what you heard was an artifact from the grills.Edit to add: I wanted to actually say thanks for the report. I love these no opinions spared, first hand reports, but in many cases judgments are made unfairly, blaming one particular item in the system, when no one has the capability to isolate that item to see if it goes away. It's really just a best guess, sometimes correct and sometimes completely wrong.Greg
Sure, in the end its a biased opinion based on less than ideal listening conditions. On the other hand, with all that science they are renowned for, you'd think they'd at least be competent selecting matching components and setting it up in the room. I mean, building a great speaker is a whole lot more complicated than getting a good setup in the room.
Skull shaped headphone amp for $14,000! I kid you not. Holy crap what is wrong with this hobby?
