As long as you like the modern look, those things look awesome. They won't go with every decor (I'm sure they'll have different finishes though).

A dealer who carries Paradigm, mentioned expected demo in the fall, and an expected price around 20-22.000 dollars here.

Looks interesting.

My dealer mentioned similar timing but the pricing would be 40,000-50,000 per pair for the 4F

With active woofers and a sensitivity of 93 dB, this will be an easy speaker to drive.
Goes down to 18 Hz.
Looks interesting!



Imagine it in black...

Default Hmmmm.......

Will be interesting to compare to the Goldenear Triton One.....at about 1/4 the price.

Aesthetic wise, woofers look like the "copied" the Klipsch Palladium series.

I had the pleasure to seeing and hearing these beauties live yesterday. These first production pair of speakers had about 10 hours on them and they sound incredible. The audition took place at my retailer and the speakers were powered by my Accuphase E-470!

After the uncrating and set up, a small group of us were treated to a session with these speakers which are now called Persona 9H. Incredibly revealing and accurate speakers with thunderous bass. This speaker does everything incredibly well.

Build quality and finish is superb! It was interesting to see the reaction of the attendees.


These speakers are not cheap, retailing at $35,000 but if I was not moving to a smaller home, my checkbook would have been a bit lighter this morning. My guess is that anyone who wants to work their way up the Paradigm product line will arrive at nirvana!

Sorry for the rotated pics. I can't seem to get them to upload correctly.

Greg, what are the Paradigm Persona 9H cabinets made out of? They look like they some type of metal construction.
