Paradigm New Monitor series 7

I received my new Sound and Vision magazine and in it was an advertisement for the Series Seven Monitors. Seven months after I picked up my Monitor 11's and cc-390 and ADPs Paradigm has released their new revision. I can't find any info on the new series on their web site. Any info?

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

Hello,
I have not read anything, but Speakers are not going to usually radically change when changing Versions of the same Series. Especially with Paradigm.
Cheers,
JJ

Ahh but they have. They went back to 3 bass drivers on the 11s and changed the shape and name of the ADPs. They are totally different than the series 6.

Ditto. Paradigm really hasn't changed much between the version 4 and version 6 (which is what i've got). I will be certainly interested in seeing this newest "version".

When i had some issues with my monitor 11's i called there Tech support and the guy wasn't sure what the differance between the series was. I will definatly be keeping an eye on there site to see.

Well there is no question they are different with different drivers and all. I'm interested it looking at the specs.

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

Where are you getting your info? I checked Paradigms site and saw nothing. I've got to see these new speakers.

An advertisement in the new Sound and Vision magazine. I looked on Paradigms web site as well. I wish I could post a scan of the advertisement. Is posting scans allowed or a picture of the ad?

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

Hello,
Regardless of what they did, you absolutely have some well engineered Speakers. And just because they look different and might have a different Driver Compliment, it does not make them automatically superior.

For instance, my ML Vantages just got discontinued on the ML Website. While the new Model is 2 Inches Wider, an inch or so deeper, perhaps an inch taller. it is actually 10 Pounds less and when I listened to them, I actually did not walk away kicking myself wanting the replacement Model,
Cheers,
JJ

Re: Paradigm New Monitor series 7

I agree with Jack completely. For comparisons sake my brother has a set of 12+ year old Monitor 9's i have the version 6 11's they have smaller drivers then my brothers yet they knock the socks of them plus total cabinet size on mine are smaller. Now even after his speakers being older they still can lay it down but with the new tecnology in mine somehow they deliver and surprisingly well.
I must say what ever Paradigm has done is for the better. Can't wait to see them as i've been a fan of them for 20 or so years, they are all i have ever owned and probly will own.
