I've got Stylus outdoor speakers. I think they sound really
Good. Don't see any issue using them indoors either.
The brackets that come with them will make them easy to
Mount too.

Cool thanks for the reply. Yeah the way they mount would make it very clean looking. After reading the spec sheets the drivers sound very similar to the what they use on the Monitor v6's, just a different crossover, and of course it's sealed.

Signature S1 height on stands

I have a pair of Signature S1's but no stands (sitting on a desk). I'm thinking about the GS-30 stands and moving to a different room, but there will be some height issues. Could anyone with this combination please tell me how tall is the top of the speaker?

Thanks. This will help me decide how big a TV I can upgrade to.

So any thoughts on the Paradigm S8v1 and how it would pair with a Paradigm C3 v3 compared to the Paradigm CC-690 v4?

Thanks!

Go Broncos!

Auto sub on

I have a pair of PDR-100's. I have them both set to auto on, but my left sub always comes on late and sometimes not at all unless I increase the volume on my receiver. Both subs volume levels and frequency settings are identical. Can anyone tell me how to get them to come on at approximately the same time?

Are you using a Y splitter? Could be a dirty or loose connection on the 2nd sub. Try cleaning the contacts or perhaps replace the splitter/cable. You could also swap the two subs and see if the problem follows the sub or not.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not using a splitter, but I will try checking my connections as well as swapping subs to see if the problem stays with the sub. Thanks for the tips.

Hi,

I would really appreciate some help. I currently have a Paradigm Studio Series.
Floorstanding Studio 100 v3
Center CC-570
Surrounds ADP-470
Driven by an Arcam AVR 350

To make a long story short, we moved a few years back into an older home and the main listening room is a long narrow room. I had limited wall space and placed the surrounds against the back wall. We are now renovating that wall and I am losing even that compromised space and need to consider going in-wall for surrounds. I am planning on keeping the same front and center but would welcome any ideas/recommendations on Paradigm in wall surrounds that would pair well with the other speakers.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I bought 85s, but dealers and Paradigm were allowing for a cost difference the 55C with the others - I'm very glad I decided to spend $400.00 to get the 55C!) Look forward to hearing your report when you get them all going.


Got the 75f and the 55c in place today. There is a massive difference in the upper midrange and treble from the Studio v3 line to the Prestige. Much more laid back sounding to my ears.

The 55c has usable output down to 45hz in my room.

Voice matching across the front 3 perfect.

So far, so good.

Hi fellow Paradigm owners,

Just upgraded from Bose 10.2 in almost 25 years to 85f and the 55c couple month ago. I am really enjoying the sound of Prestige Series.
Running with DENON 4200W. Thinking about adding more power to the speaker. I am still doing my homework.

I am looking for rear surround and just found used Studio 10 v5 from forum member. Will it be good idea get this as rear surround speaker?

Thank you

Ken

I might have gone a bit overkill here but
Paradigm monitor 7 v6 x2
Atom 7 v6
Reference Studio CC-470 v.3
Ps 1000 v4
PDR 12 x2

I still have a bunch of older stuff but got lucky on the newer stuff and scooped them up at a foreclosure sale

That Anthem A5 is the backbone to the whole system! every time I listen to mine (Anthem A5), I'm incredibly impressed with the sound quality. It just seems like it has authority and spacial presence to the sound. I'm trying to decide if I should replace my Integra DTR 50.3 with an Anthem processor such as the D2, D2V, or AVM60.

Wondering if anyone here is using Atmos modules with Paradigm speakers? I have older Monitor 9 v2s and a CC-370 v2, and would like to add some elevation speakers. I don't know what current offerings have a similar sound signature if at all to my speakers. Anyone have any experience?
