Review: Paradigm Cinema ht Speaker
What are your musical tastes? I listen to Jazz, some Rock, pop, Alternative Rock and oldies too.
recordings you use for testing? I usually put on a cd that has a clean voice and defined instruments. Clean bass is a must. Examples : Norah Jones, Presuntos Implicados, SOME Lenny Kravitz. I also may play some soft rock, the Wallflowers, etc.
What are the most important aspects of sound for you? A clean, clear response. Good integration with the rest of the system and natural reproduction. I also like prescence and power.
What is the worst thing a system could do to turn you off?
When it's too bright or too soft.
How long has this piece been in your system?
I've had these little paradigms for about 6-8 months
What did this component replace? A set of Klipsch Quintets with a Velodyne CT-100 sub
How did the sound change with this addition? MUCH Better! the sound is clearer than the Klipsch and more enjoyable
What are some of its strengths? Clear sound, well defined
What are some of its weaknesses? Little speakers, they can only integrate so much to a sub since the low frequencies cannot be reproduced by these monitors
If money was no object, would you still own this? Of course not...
