Paradigm Owners Thread

I’ve had my 2008 Paradigm setup and very satisfied with it. Monitor 9’s v5 R and L, cc-390 center, adp-390’s side and rear surrounds. Plus 2012 Mini-monitors as front wides and front heights.
I’m going AT screen so will be selling these, and full DIYSG replacements
Anyone in SE Michigan that is interested in a demo and package deal PM me. I’m looking for a win-win here.
These are awesome, sound is fantastic.
HToM July-2015.

Just ordered a 85F/55c combo.

Also have a PSA S1510 on order.

Cant wait.

Hopefully my Denon 3500H will have enough juice.

Just picked up a pair of new Monitor 7 v7s for $249 each to go in place of my Mini Monitor v6s as fronts in a 5.1 system, powered by a Yamaha V663. The Mini Monitors on stands were not exactly friendly for the toddlers I have in the house. I also have a Sub 10 v7, and Atom Monitor v7's mounted from back ceiling as rear/side surrounds. It's all being used in a medium-sized living room, about 17' long and 14' wide, with one of the 14' sides being relatively open into a kitchen, but with a big beam coming down from the ceiling and a bar that together contain some of the sound in the living space.

It's a combo home theater and music-listening room, so I'm excited to now have the Monitor 7s.

My current center is a Paradigm CC-190. I'm wondering, should I wish to upgrade that (does it make sense?), which Paradigm Center most makes sense? Without negotiation, and while they last, I'm able to get a Center 1 v7 for $199, or a Center 3 v7 for $299.

Any thoughts on which center would match best with the Monitor 7's, or if I should sit tight and see how it works as is?

I like the Monitor V7 line and still using them as surrounds in my setup. When Paradigm came out with the V7 line they switched to Aluminum tweeters (tech trickled down from their higher lines), whereas V1 to V6 had Titanium tweeters. I too say go for the Center 3...

Monitor Version 7 tweeter rubberized surround very sticky

Hey everyone, new member here. Back on page 1222 #36640 someone had an issue with their baffle becoming very sticky. I own a single Paradigm speaker, an Atom V7 as a center. My problem is that specifically the rubber piece surrounding the tweeter has become VERY soft and sticky. When I press on it if feels like fresh gum and leaves a fingerprint and becomes slightly discolored. The baffle looks and feels normal. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it pretty normal for the version 7s after several years?

Monitor v6 to Studio v3?

Hi All!

Love my Paradigm speakers, currently I have the following 5.1 setup: Monitor 11's, CC-390 and ADP-390 all v6. Looking at used Studio 100's, CC-570, ADP-470 all v3 for $1200. Movies 90%, Music 10%, room is not dedicated open on one side.

Currently running a Denon 3806, Emotiva XPA-5 and SVS PB12-ISD/2. Considering upgrading to a Denon 4500 and adding Atmos (probably 5.1.4, maybe 7.1.4), might try using some Energy Take 5 satellites for 4 height speakers directed towards the listening position since I already have them and I have couple horizontal beams across the basement ceiling to mount them on. As I experiment with Atmos, I may end up moving away from ADP surrounds and get something directional.

Would the move from Monitor 11 v6 to Studio 100 v3 be worth it? Would the CC-570 maybe improve sound, but reduce impact/range compared to the CC-390 for Movies? Is there a big difference between Studio v3 and v5 so much that it would be worth waiting for some Studio v5 gear to become available? $1200 seems like a good price, right?

Best Regards,
Jimmy

Signature S4 v1 or 15B for HT

So I'm in a bit of a bind. I recently picked up some Magnepan 1.7is for music and they are astonishingly good for the vast majority of music that suits my tastes (Mark Knopfler, Ray Lamontagne, Clapton, DMB, some jazz, etc). As they could not possibly co-exist with my 95Fs due to space, both being different forms of huge, I sold the 95Fs.

I've also learned that they're a bit impractical for me to own as my only pair of mains (combo of off-axis performance, and their need to be pulled waaaaay into the room). I need something smaller that can be easily shuffled around to do TV/HT duty, during which time the Maggies will be pushed back against the wall, and what will blend reasonably well with my 55C.

I'm currently using some Signature S4 v1s from an old stereo only setup I had. They're small(ish...) enough to shuffle around when I want to pull the Maggies out, and when the Maggies are stored behind them against the wall, the fact that they're front-ported helps a bit with boundary issues. But they're not a prefect match to the 55C, and maybe a little overkill if I'm not using them for music.

Here's the thing: someone wants to buy the S4s for a pretty good price. With the proceeds, I could buy some store demo 15Bs and pocket a little bit of cash.

What would you do, given that they would be purely for TV/HT duty, and would match to a 55C? Keep the S4s, or sell them and get some 15Bs? 75Fs aren't an option due to price. I have to come out ahead in order to be persuaded to sell the S4s.

Only very slightly related to the above, does anyone know the length and thread-count of the screws I'd need to attach the S4s to the J-23 stands? I can't find anything on the internet.

I upgraded from Monitors to Studios for LRC. The improvement for me was minor. You can see the speakers in my tag line. I moved my Monitors to rear surrounds. Monitors were a fantastic value. I would have rather spent my money on a 2nd subwoofer. I'm not at all unhappy with the upgrade. I just think you will find it an incremental upgrade.

Sharp 80-inch 3D LED TV, Yamaha RX-A3070 Receiver, Outlaw 5000 Amplifier
Paradigm Reference Studio/100 v.2 front speakers Paradigm, Studio CC-690 center-channel
Paradigm CI Pro P80-IW Side Surrounds, Paradigm Monitor 9 rear surrounds, 4 CI Pro P80-R overheads
FV15HP Rythmik subwoofer

Hi everyone. A newbies question. I currently have a Paradigm CT100 5 channel and an SVS SB2000 with the Marantz slimline receiver. It works well but needed some advice on tower options of the monitor SE series as am looking for finesse in the mids and highs. Will the upgrade to the 6000F make a real difference from my current set up? I intend to use my sub at all times with 50/50 music/ht use. Or should I stretch my budget for the 15B's. Will it be a big jump in sound quality over the Moni SE.

The Prestige 15B's are probably closer to what you're looking for.

If you can stretch your budget I recommend the 15B's. I replaced Monitor 11's with the 15B's a bit over a year ago and am very pleased. The mid and higher ranges are tight, clear and wonderful to my ears. Of course there is a bit of loss in the lower range compared to the 11's but I don't miss them.

If you can listen and compare I strongly suggest it...perhaps you'd prefer the towers...only your ears can tell.

As an aside how do you like the svs sb2000? I'm in the market for a new sub, or two, to replace an aging Paradigm PDR12/PDR100 and the 2000 is in the running. What did it replace?
Thanks and good luck...keep us informed on what you wind up doing and your impressions...

Hi.. I had a listen to the 3000f and what mesmerized me was the imaging. I could hear instruments all over the place except from the speakers itself. I then listened to the monitor 7 and realized it lacked the sparkle that the SE had, imaging lacked a bit, and bass was a bit woolly.

The SE sounded crisp and tight. It had a kind of three dimensional sound which was baffling. Hence considered the 6000f. I can just imagine how the 15B's sound as no luck for the demo. How good do they image? Am sure the fidelity is superior to the SE range but wondering if they have the same magic. Can you share a concert experience with the 15B's (how realistic did it sound).

As for the SVS SB 2000. What can I say. It replaced the sub which came with the CT100 (cinema sub) and the difference was astounding. Make no mistake, the paradigm sub was good, but the SVS has bass heft that is in a different league. There's no distortion even in the most chaotic of passages. There cannot be a better sub at the price for music. Tight and fast, have rediscovered the bass fidelity in my music collection. For movies too it's amazing unless you really want to shake the hell out of your home, something like the PB 2000 might be the choice. Though I would personally prefer a sealed sub any day. And why not enjoy music with the full spectrum of the frequency range right down to the bottom! You can't go wrong with it am sure. Thanks for your inputs. Cheers!!

I have 15B's and imaging is one of their best features, it's about the best I've ever heard, and i've owned and listened to many much more expensive speakers. The Monitor SE's are great, but the Prestige are a good step up in every way. They have better bass, imaging, smoother, and clearer.

Assume you mean Monitor v7 but didn't state which speaker.

Or did you mean Monitor 7 and forget the version?

I'm using 3's for surround and Atom's for rears in a 7.2 set up. It is very enveloping.
Yes, they're bi-polar.

Got a busted tweeter that has been pressed downwards. I don't hear any performance issues, so the question is should I replaced it?

If you are mechanically inclined you can remove the tweeter and disassemble it. The diaphragm should be removable and then you can carefully push/smooth the dent out from the back side.

Is it hard to do? Sounds like you have to take it apart completely.

I'm running 5.1 now with the Monitor Surround 1 for my rears. They are pretty invisible sonically, except when they aren't (then...BAM!). I mainly chose them over the Surround 3 for their size relative to the columns they are mounted on.

Another technique that I've used successfully when my (then) 2 year old knocked over my Monitor Audio RS6 tower speaker and dented the tweeter is simply use a piece of scotch tape gently applied to the tweeter and then pull up slowly.

To be honest I have not done this on a Paradigm speaker, but I have on a very similar aluminum dome tweeter on another brand. I believe that once you remove the speaker from the cabinet (four outer screws) and then remove the three inner screws the coil and diaphragm just come off the magnet structure (i.e. the coil comes out of the coil gap) exposing the back of the dome.

The tape option may work also. You just have to be careful not to do more damage applying the tape adequately to pull out the dent.
