PARADIGM : Signature S2

For the Ultimate in Music and Home Theater

The finest speakers in the world are a medium for the music, an open window on the original performance. They take us from the mundane to the magical, beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary. They are a reflection of character. Not the sonic character of the speaker, since speakers claiming to be the finest must be devoid of acoustic personality. Rather, the finest speakers deliver an intimate unfolding of the songwriter’s mood, the composer’s message, the director’s vision. They allow us to feel the music, hear the magic, and see through the mind’s eye, into the very heart of the performance.

For the ultimate in music and home theater, there is no more sonically coherent choice than Paradigm Reference Signature … revealing everything the artist intended.

Features

P-Be™ Pure-Beryllium Tweeter Domes. Pure beryllium was chosen for its exceptional thermal, physical and mechanical properties: lighter than diamond or aluminum with unmatched rigidity. Response is instantaneous and extraordinarily uniform. Elevating the dome promoted optimal off-axis dispersion.

ARB™ Aperiodic Resonance Breakup Fins. Die-cast aluminum fins in rear damping chamber capture and quickly disperse residual internal resonances, rendering them inert.

Co-PAL™ Cobalt-Infused Anodized Pure-Aluminum Midrange Cones. Combine high stiffness-to-mass with superior internal damping for an even greater degree of accuracy. The result is smooth, uncolored frequency response.

Premium Finishes. Signature Series enclosures are enhanced by a choice of two stunning wood veneer finishes — Cherry and Piano Black.
