Paradigm redesigns cinema speakers7 December 2011
Available now in the UK from Anthem AV Solutions, Paradigm’s next generation of Cinema speakers has been ‘re-engineered and redesigned from head to toe’.
The Cinema line models include: the Cinema 100 satellite (table-top stand and wall-mount bracket included), the Cinema 200 on-wall, the Cinema 400 on-wall, the Cinema Trio 3-in-1 LCR, the Cinema Sub, and the Cinema 100 CT 5.1 system. An extensive array of audio configurations can be arranged with this combination of satellite, on-wall and 3-in-1 speakers.
The speakers incorporate reference-quality crossovers, S-PAL satin-anodised pure-aluminium dome tweeters, and wire-mesh tweeter guards with WaveGuide technology borrowed from the Reference Signature series. Meanwhile, mineral-filled polypropylene bass/midrange cones with added mineral content stiffen cone composition.
The range also includes new curved and sculpted acoustic suspension cabinets with an industrial high-gloss finish. Push-through binding posts with new Easy-Glide wire channels allow for painless installation and banana plug access, while the inclusion of the EasyMount wall-mounting system facilitates flexibility of placement.
Anthem AV also highlights the ‘dramatically increased dynamic range’ of the new Cinema Sub. Features include an 8” high-excursion driver made of polymer composite, capable of producing 300 watts (Dynamic Peak) and 100 watts (RMS sustained). The Cinema Sub allows for two different placement options – gloss side up or cloth side up – depending on aesthetic preference.
