Speaker of the Month: Paradigm Prestige 95F
The March pick for Speaker of the Month is the Paradigm Prestige 95F loudspeaker. The 95F is the flagship of the Prestige Series lineup.
What we love about the Prestige Series (and Paradigm in general) is smart engineering, high-quality Canadian craftsmanship, and a laser focus on the details.
For sound quality, the Prestige 95F outperforms many more expensive speakers making them great value at $4,998/pair (for Piano Black, Gloss White, Walnut, and Black Walnut finishes). If you want something extraordinary, the Midnight Cherry finish is gorgeous at $5598/pair.
“These speakers seriously rocked on movies, and the performance on two-channel music was so intoxicating that sometimes I started to feel the speakers were tailor-made for whatever song I was listening to until the next song came on and then I thought the speakers were made just for that song. This is what you get with properly engineered speakers – you get performance that works for all sorts of material and users. It’s because these speakers pass the signal with the least interpretation or distortion on their part.” — Jim Clements, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
Prestige 95F Features
Prestige 95F floorstanding speakers utilize 2.5-way crossover technology to greatly improve off-axis performance (for listeners not positioned directly in front of the sweet spot) and boost deep bass dynamics. This leap in acoustic performance is based in utilizing all three woofers at low frequencies, while the bass/midrange covers voice and musical instruments without the necessity of “crossing over” to the dedicated midrange.
- 1″ X-PAL™ tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) optimized pole piece assembly.
- 8″ X-PAL™ brushed pure-aluminum bass/midrange driver with overmolded ART™ surround and SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System.
- Two 8″ X-PAL™ brushed pure-aluminum bass drivers with overmolded ART™ surrounds and SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System.
- Dimensions: 44-3/4″ H x 13-1/4″ W x 17-1/8″ D
