It has been a few weeks now since I picked up a pair of Prestige 95Fs and a 55C with them free on the Paradigm promotion. I ended up trading in my 11se MKIII monitor series speakers after I picked up the 95Fs. I have to say that the 95Fs are quite a bump in sound quality. Ouverture (Adagio; Allegro)
has a large tympani that comes in around 4:20 in the track which did not sound like a tympani on the 11se MKIIIs. The 95Fs reproduces the tympani quite well.
Here's a bit of a pictorial (my apologies if some of the pics are rotated - you can rotate them with the image tool at the link.)
Size comparison - 55C 95F boxes
They are double boxed - and there are staples in both the inner and outer boxes.
Goodies in the 95F box -
Adjustment of the feet is well-engineered in my opinion.
was high on leaving the grills off - but we decided to put them on
And the final setup in a somewhat panoramic format
There's a Servo-15 v1 on the right.
Some of you will probably say that the room is cramped for the 95Fs. I bought based on the sound. I thought the 95Fs sounded better than the 85F, so that is what I decided to buy. My take on the "too large" aspect is that speakers will only be too large if they are played too loud. I'm running a Yamaha RX-A1050 behind these, and I used the YPAO automated setup. IMHO, YPAO did a great job and managed to keep the speakers sounding musical with music sources. The 95Fs are quite a bit more sensitive than the 11se MKIIIs they replaced. We used to keep the volume on the 1050 at -20 for the 11se MKIIIs; now, we keep it at about -27.
I am very happy with them, and happier still that I decided not to purchase Studio 100 v4s a few years back.
