Paradigm Monitor 7 Floor Standing Speakers
Rome Wasn’t Built in A Day. Neither Was the Paradigm Monitor 7 v7 Floor Standing Speaker. It took three emperors and 15 years to build Rome’s colosseum, architecture that still elicits awe centuries later. And while we’re not so bold as to compare the colosseum to the new Monitor Series, you have to admit the speakers look more than a little awesome in the backdrop of Ancient Rome. Good architecture will stand up well over time, as will good sonic architecture. Our Monitor Series is a classic example. Now in its seventh iteration, each new generation is an opportunity for refinement: design innovations from our higher-priced reference lineups, reference-quality component parts, cabinets and even finishes! When it comes to getting value for your money, it doesn’t get better than Monitor Series. Since its inception, the Monitor Series has been a favorite of audiophiles on a budget — with Monitor Series, that hasn’t changed.
We can’t promise it will still be around in two thousand years, but we can promise it will play louder, plumb deeper, look smarter and sound better than any other brand in its price range.
The Building Blocks: Monitor Drivers:
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Bass/Midrange Cones.
First seen in our Paradigm Reference lineup, very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. In an affordable audio category – unbelievable quality!
Advanced Carbon-Infused Injection-Molded Polypropylene Bass Cones.
The high mineral content and injection-molding process have created a durable and rigid cone with affords us bragging rights for cone consistency and repeatability.
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes
with powerful neodymium magnets and ferro-fluid cooling for increased power handling! Highs are more soaring and spacious, crystal clear and undiluted even at the higher bandwidths.
Wire Mesh Tweeter Guard and WaveGuide™
More Reference technology, ensuring a smooth, wide panorama of audiophile-quality sound. Wire mesh protection for the pure-aluminum tweeter.
Sophisticated crossovers in an affordable audiophile product!
Again, it’s almost unheard of: polypropylene film or bipolar electrolytic capacitors, air core and laminated core inductors, high-power resistors. Crossover topologies are first and second-order with corresponding acoustic slopes of second and third-order providing optimal bandwidth and seamless integration as drivers cross over.
Long-Travel Motor/Magnet Structures.
Despite fewer drivers than in previous series’, floorstanding and center channel speakers actually plumb deeper. This is, in part, attributable to the advanced motor/magnet structures: high-temperature copper or aluminum wire voice coils (varies by model) wound on Kapton formers, oversized magnets with all components FEA-optimized.
Foam-Rubber Elastomer Surrounds.
Reference Studio Series geometry!
Help achieve that play loud AND play deep effect by allowing longer, expertly controlled cone travel.
Baffled about Baffles? Don’t Be!
For those of you who are wondering. A baffle is the surface on which the speakers or drivers are mounted. It prevents the front and rear sound waves from interfering with each other causing sound cancellation, as well as to absorb sound energy, particularly problematic reflected sound. So a speaker baffle is pretty darn important.
The new Monitor Series baffle is a work of art – worthy of a spot in the arches of a colosseum. It boasts …
A clean aesthetic, nothing to see but the the beautiful drivers, no screws or fasteners visible
Thick and rigid ¾˝ MDF across the lineup
FEA-optimized (including a stress analysis) to overcome the limitations of the physical materials.
A modal frequency analysis allowed us to deliver the most resonance-, vibration- and coloration-free Monitor Series cabinet to date!
Critically tuned to the rest of the cabinet
Rap on the baffle … you’ll hurt nothing but your knuckles!
The Roman Plinth
New Monitor floorstanders sit on a plinth, a sleek and secure base that provides stability for the slimmer footprint — an aesthetically pleasing columnar look.
Paradigm Monitor Center 1
The Center 1, like so many other Paradigm center channel speakers, is a superb product: compact yet still a true 3-way. The tweeter in the middle crosses over to the midrange below it at 3 kHz, which in turn crosses over to the pair of woofers to either side at 550Hz. Not only does this embody all the virtues of a true 3-way, but it does so with virtually no off axis combing, the woofers being very close together to begin with and voicing only up to a relatively low frequency. The midrange is “protected” from the backpressure of the woofers by being in a sealed volume of its own.
Paradigm Monitor Surround 1
The Surround 1 carries on a very long lineage of dedicated dipole surround speakers. The Surround 1 have a shallowed angle to the poles. Not only does this enable the attractive curved appearance, but in giving them a little more direct sound to their mix it may yield a more even presentation to multiple rows of seating. The pair of tweeters and 4 1/2″ mid-bass drivers are squeezed into a remarkably compact enclosure. Wall mount hardware is included, suitable for drywall attachment, though catching a stud is always preferred. The binding posts are suitably recessed for wall mounting but use of something like bananas will still require an accommodating hole in the wall. In addition half-sphere rubber feet are provided should you need to place them on a shelf or other horizontal surface.
