    Default Paradigm Special Edition SE 1 Speaker System (HTM Review)


    The SE 1 and SE SUB don’t just sound like far more expensive products—they also look like ’em. The Special Edition belongs on anyone’s short list of affordable yet high-performing speakers.

    These are some truly amazing speakers. They sound like the studio series and look gorgeous in rosenut or gloss black. A wonder to hear. Their larger brother the floor standing SE3 is is not only pleasing to look at but sounds particularly detailed and room filling. Just can't find anything better in this price range.

    Yup, he's right; they are amazing value. Paradigm has engineered Studio series mid/bass drivers into a less complex cabinet and built a winner. They're really solid. The sound is rich without being muddy and the midrange is right. The only place where they fall short of the Studio speakers is the very top end and then they only give up a little extension and air which is apparent on beautifully recorded violin, piano, soprano chick-singing and suchlike.

    If you are in the market for new speakers and these are within 20% more of your budget or 50% less than you should hunt a dealer down and listen.
