Crafted in Canada ... That's Paradigm's statement for its new Premier Series of loudspeakers that sits between the recently released Monitor SE range and the Prestige Series. It also benefits from trickle-down technology from the state-of-the-art Persona Series.

The Premier Series is designed, engineered, and made in Paradigm’s state-of-the-art Canadian facility and promises true hand-crafted build-quality,  utilising heavy duty, non-resonant 3/4-inch MDF, interior bracing, and reinforced front baffles that it says ensures an audio performance beyond any other in this price range.

Paradigm has employed tapered-angle cabinet designs in this range that not only reduces back-wave reflections within the cabinet, but ensures more accurately dispersed audio reproduction.

Partnering with Canada's world-renowned NRC for ongoing research into human hearing and sound reproduction, its findings are employed in Paradigm's speaker ranges starting with the Persona Series and now trickling down to the Premier Series.

The Premier Series consists of six models, including 100B Bookshelf ($1,299), 200B Bookshelf ($1,499), 700F Floorstander ($2,799), 800F  Floorstander ($3,499), and two centre channel speakers, 500C ($1,299) and 600C ($1,699).

Bruce Thierbach, General Manager Sales & Marketing for Audio Active which distributes Paradigm in Australia, told StereoNET:

This line up has been the missing link within the Paradigm range here in Australia. The new Premier Series has been positioned well in order to achieve maximum value for money, quality and performance.

What you get in the Premier Series is all the research, engineering and hand-crafted build quality from higher models for only a modest outlay.

Premier Series is expected to be available in Australia at the end of August 2018.

See Paradigm in Room M6 at the 2018 Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show, October 12-14, at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park. Tickets on sale now.
