    Default Paradigm steps up the cinema line!!


    I don't know if any of you have previously had the chance to listen to the Cinema series before, but I gotta tell ya these thing's sounded very very big for their size. It looks like with the recent upgrade to the monitor line Paradigm has also decide to upgrade the Cinema series as well. These appear to have the same mid range drivers and tweeters that the new monitor line has, which makes me wonder if Cinema series is still being built in China, as they were the only thing in the Paradigm lineup that were before.

    Paradigm Cinema 100CT 5.1 Speaker System

    Conclusions About the Paradigm Cinema 100CT 5.1 Speaker System

    I was surprised - make that pleasantly surprised. Both by the sound the Paradigm Cinema 100CT produced and just how much I enjoyed them in my room. Sure they looked tiny and they were not up to my reference speakers quality of music reproduction. But for TV and movies they were plenty of fun. Lacking in midbass purity and output they still threw a large sound stage, blended seamlessly as a set (note to Paradigm: please consider a vertical stand for the center) and had decent bass at low listening levels. Dialogue was easy to understand and effects were accurately placed and defined.

    I agree 100% and felt the same way when I auditioned these. Those looking for smaller speakers should give these a listen, though there is a lack of mid bass (to be expected) they have a "BIG" sound to them.
