Just an update on my earlier post about the Studio 60 V1. Everything works fine so I went ahead and picked the pair up + 1 Totem Mite T Center. $325 total~.

AVfile and bthrb4u like this.

Does anyone think the smaller 5.5" drivers in the Prestige centres and the surrounds would be problematic for loud volumes without distortion?

I ask this because I will be getting the 85F fronts if I end up going with the prestige which have larger 6.5" drivers, but for the centres and surrounds there is no option that includes the larger drivers?

Is having 17.8cm ( studio series ) drivers e-peen overkill? Or does it serve a function.

All the Paradigm propaganda about Prestige is blah blah "fit and finsh" blah blah "midnight cherry". I want to know about what went into the design besides cosmetic B.S and the ridiculous 'phase plug' tweeter cover.

I think "less" than the Studio Series.........far less substantial cabinets and it seems drivers too!


Not sure about the finish......lots of issues with poor finish on the Studio speakers and other lines by what I have experienced.

Yeah the manufacturing problems were a bit scary, but as the Prestige is made in canada, whereas the manufacturing problems were with their china made gear, I am not so worried.

The back of my newest Studio's say Made in Canada, but they have poor finishing quality. I don't know what went wrong unless flawed B stock got wrapped up by mistake. My dealer is working with Paradigm to rectify the issue.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I was told I will get my complete order of Prestige 2x95f , 2x85f, and 55c in Midnight Cherry at the end
of March. I will go over them thoroughly to make sure they are flawless, and I will post about this and their
sound.

That's really strange, lots of people on here have posted that the latest studio series were made in china. Maybe they switches back after insane failure rates, still doesn't explain what happened to your speakers though. Hope you get a straight up replacement soon.

I eagerly await hearing how they sound. Especially the 85F and 55C as I will possibly be getting both, the 95F is way too expensive for consideration for me.
