Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

Mail lady just showed up and had in her hands the new Sound & Vision mag so you know exactly what i did, went straigt to the Paradigm ad. I must say i had to catch my jaw from hitting the floor. very nice indeed, now i need to figure a way out of my old 11's so i can get the new ones. They have got to be spectacular.
Thanks zeigalj for bringing these new and probly improved speakers to our attention.

No big deal.
At least someone else has seen the ad now. I just hope that I can still buy the version sixes. I still need another set of ADP 390s to match the pair I have now. I might consider the new Monitor 3's for my other set if they are not selling the ADP anymore. The New Monitor 3's might just be considered new and they will still sell te ADP. I guess I will find out.

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

My guess would be that for now you shouldn't have any issues with getting the Models your after.

By the way the series 7's are stunning looking, very curious as to what they will cost, it seems Paradigm has been pumping up the prices on there speakers year after year.

The exchange rate is killing them so they were forced to up the price some. I still feel I received great speakers for the price though. I agree they are going for the grills off look that many speaker companies are going for. They do look great. I still want to know if one of those woofers is passive on the new 11's.

I'm just wondering if they are going to offer ribbon tweeters in a new line of speakers. It seems that more and more manufactures are putting out a speaker with them.

The surround are called "surround 3's" as I noticed my mistake in my post.

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

Hello,
After hearing many of the latest Monitor Series, I am curious about the forthcoming Monitor Series. I will always have a soft spot for this Series as they represented the first pair of quality Speakers I owned when I purchased a pair of Monitor 7's my 1st Semester of my Freshmen Year in College. I kept them forever until I eventually gave them to a friend. Still going strong.

I am not sure about the new Tweeter as while the more expensive Studio Series uses AL Tweeters, they are Gold Plated where the new ones in the Monitors are not. Regardless, I am sure they will sound great. As will any purchased in the last decade even.
Cheers,
JJ
