Paradigm Wins Three 2014 Editors’ Choice Awards from The Absolute Sound
The Absolute Sound published the 2014 Editors’ Choice Award winners in the March issue 241 and we are very pleased with the results. Paradigm won not 1, not 2, but 3 Editors’ Choice awards!
Paradigm SHIFT A2 – Desktop Loudspeakers
“A 2012 Golden Ear recipient, the SHIFT A2 is more than just a cleverly named loudspeaker. Compact, internally powered, and equipped with DSP bass management and enough back-panel inputs to connect to almost any source, this is what 21st century entry-level high end is all about. A combination of sound and value, it extends the welcome mat to budding high-enders who may have felt they couldn’t afford the entrance fee.” – Neil Gader, Issue 224
Paradigm Reference Studio 10 – $1000 – $1500 Stand-Mount and Floorstanding Loudspeakers
“Paradigm’s diminuitive Studio 10 is inherently warm and full, with a remarkably large presentation that will appeal to a wide range of listeners. It’s not the most transparent design, but is nevertheless lively and involving. This front-ported two-way can sit on a shelf, but performs best on a rigid stand placed somewhat into the room. Bass isn’t bad, but some will want to add one of Paradigm’s subwoofers to fill out the bottom end.” – Wayne Garcia, Issue 2014
Paradigm Reference Signature SUB 2 – Subwoofers
“The Paradigm SUB 2 may be one of the few subwoofers that can be properly mated with planar loudspeakers. Its lightning-fast ability to project front, rear, and sideways means that it is simply impossible to detect where it is positioned. The SUB 2 features what Paradigm calls Vibration-Canceling Design Architecture, and the design clearly delivers the goods. The hexagonal cabinet can make it hard to install, but once in place the SUB 2 can deliver a crushing 112dB at 10Hz.” – Jim Hannon, Issue 214.
