Paradigm Studio v5 - coming soon or evil rumor? - Page 3

post #61 of 1254
Someone else caught this before me, but take a look at the Black Studio 60, It has an extra driver in there.... I wonder if they also changed it from a 2 1/2 way to a 3 way like the Signature S6. That would leave the Studio 40 the only 2 1/2 way in the lineup.

Actually the black speakers you see on the left hand side will be the new Monitor 11's. The studio's will have the bigger cabinets and drivers than the monitors. The one in the middle is the new studio 20 V5 and beside that on the right hand side is the studio 100's.

Paradigm will revamp all their line with wood finishes instead of laminate. I heard this news from my dealer. They are pretty dead on with their rumors.

cheers,

As you can see in this picture the left hand side has the smaller cabinet paradigm speakers. These will replace the Monitor line or become the new monitor line. The 3 way design looks like the Monitor 11's the smaller one will be the Titan monitor. Like i said, these will be the new monitor or will replace the new monitor.

The bigger cabinet studio speakers will be the new V5's. As you can see in the picture the middle one is the new 20 V5 with the new studio 100 on the right hand side. This is all from my dealer, let see if it is true?

cheers,

I beg to differ, the monitor line is not getting a cabinet upgrade, just the studio line, and you can plainly see that the black cabinet has the Gold G-Pal tweeter and the White midrange driver...

That Black one is clearly the new Studio 60....
I also question the 2 different 2 way speakers, the one on the right appears to have a larger midrange driver...

Not sure where your dealer is coming from on that...

Here is the pics of the new Monitor Line..... with the Wenge veneer, they have already been announced. from ecoustics http://news.ecoustics.com/bbs/messag...81/506874.html

Like i said, if they are not the monitors than it could be a new line from paradigm or could replace the monitors. I heard this from the dealer, i guess still could be a rumors.

They are revamping the Studio Line with real wood finishes... they will discontinue the current boxy look to go with the more mainstream finishes that everyone else and their uncle is putting out for the same money, so if Paradigm wants to stay competitive in this market, they had to make a move.

I was also just at the dealer auditioning the Sig. S6 and S8 and had discussed this with the them and they were at the Show and saw them in person and confirmed all this.

I did not get info about the adding of a new speaker to the lineup though, but you can certainly see that there are now 2 - 2 way speakers in the picture.

We'll have to just wait and see when the announcement comes...

Did you guys notice that the Midrange and Bass Drivers of the black speaker are smaller compared to the Studio 20's and Studio 100's ???

I just took the grills off my studio 100's and took a peak, it looks like all the drivers are the same on every speaker compared to my 100's except that one I have highlighted..... It looks to have a larger midrange then the others...

post #69 of 1254
Check out the following photo...

The Studio 20 looks bigger because the other speakers are standing behind from it. Now take a close look on the Midrange - Bass drivers of the first two speakers. They only have one screw on each corner holding them in place. While the Studio 20 and Studio 100 have 2 screws on each corner just like the V.3 and V.4 Studio Line.





And here's the "Studio 60" and the Studio 100 side-by-side.

The oval port on what looks to be a jr to the studio 20 is new.

I can help clear things up...



The picture is of Paradigm's upcoming Reference Studio (version 5) line. Paradigm will indeed have two driver sizes available in the Studio v5 series, but actual naming is TBD. Why? Well, the word on the street is the new, smaller Studio models perform as-well-as or better than the current Studio v4 product. We'll see I guess!

Thanks for the info glennQ.

I'm very interested in the smaller 2-way speaker (Studio 10 ???).

I just sold my Studio 40 v.3 upgrading to beautiful wood veneer Studio 20
post #75 of 1254
I took my damaged Studio 20v4 (with the warped drivers) in to get them replaced a week ago. The dealer asked me if I wanted a new Studio 20 v4 for a deep discount or wait for the new Studio 20 v5.

My dealer was ready to place a pre-order for the new Studio 20's. He spoke to a paradigm rep to get the price and shipping dates, and confirmed that the new line will be shipping in Jan 09. The Studio 20 v5 will be for $1200.The smaller bookshelfs will be called Studio 10. He said that in addition to the cosmetic changes, Paradigm have improved the "driver technology", so the new line should sound better as well. I didn't ask him for any specifics on that.

Considering the good discount I was getting, I decided to stick with a pair of new Studio 20 v4 and use the saved money to upgrade my old receiver and get a nice amp.

Hope I don't regret this decision in the future....

What good timing. I'm looking at studio 100's. Did you get an MSRP on the 100 v5's?
post #77 of 1254
Any updates on this?
post #78 of 1254
if you ask me they look like the Signature series as they are rounded in the back and looks like real wood. Yet, the mid range drivers are white, not gold like the sigs. The midrange phase plug on the "new studio 60" black speaker looks much larger then that on my studio 100 v.3 or the v.4's for that matter.
post #79 of 1254
I just looked again and the rubber around the drivers looks to be changed also. Seems to be more "traditional look" with the rubber ( raised in a half moon. The rubber around my studio 100's v.3 dips inward around the driver and the driver is kind of suspended. Don't know if that makes sense to anyone?
post #80 of 1254
What kind of discounts can I expect for the current v4 lineup if the v5 will be showing up in Jan 09.
Looking to purchase the studio 100, c690 and 2 pairs of studio 20s for the rears.
Anybody willing to get rid of them please PM me.

Thx.

I'd really like to get a set of Studio 60s. I have v1 Reference 20s from when they first came out and v1 Studio CC (CC-450 I think). I'd like to move the 20s to the back and get some 60s for the Front L&R. I have a MK sub from the same time (late 90s) with newer drivers from MK recommended for the included amp. Does anyone have a guess at the MSRP and street price for the new series? From an earlier post, it looks like the 60s might be more than I expected and am potentially interested in some gently used units if anyone is looking at ditching 60s or 100s.

I haven't seen or heard anything lately. Does anyone have any updates to report?

A dealer is working on getting me info on me for v5 60s, and I'll let you know if he's able to find out anything.
post #84 of 1254
I spoke to my dealer (in Houston area) yesterday regarding the V5s. The dealer advised they have received no official information from Paradigm. They have been Paradigm dealers for at least ten years.

I bought my v1 20s in 1996 (I think) from the dealer I've contacted, he told me that the v5 won't be available until next year of course. He said he was told maybe around mid-February with a design that looks like above. He told me that pricing was tentatively set at $2,500 for the 60s, subject to change.
post #86 of 1254
From what a Paradigm rep told me, the smallest speaker in that group will be the Studio 20, making the 20 a true bookshelf speaker.

The larger of the two "bookshelf" speakers is the Studio 40, much like the old Studio 20.

The Studio 60 is the smaller tower and the Studio 100 is the bigger tower.

This was all about a month or two ago so stuff may change, but this is what I was told from a Paradigm factory rep.

I do hope that the 40v.5 continue as a 2.5 way design. It offers much better detail than what a 2 way can offer at that price with the crossover parts they use.
post #88 of 1254
I wonder if the new Studio 10 will be derived from the Signature S1.

Sure looks that way.

If you remember they did away with that design with the Monitor 5, so I'm sure they are applying that same logic to the Studio series now.
