Studio speakers offer the highest standard of technological excellence resulting in a breathtaking quality of music reproduction that captures the essence of the original sound. Equally important is the speakers’ performance in home theatre. Movie soundtracks are a complex mix of dialog, music and action effects. This requires a level of articulation and spatial representation that few movie theaters are capable of reproducing. Studio speakers exceed typical high-end home theater sound by expanding the sheer size, scale and dynamics of the acoustic soundstage. While listening to a Studio system The Perfect Vision magazine put it best: “It’s just like being at the movies — except the sound is a lot better.”*

G-PAL™ Gold-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes. Exceptionally rigid low-mass domes with treated textile suspensions ensure remarkably uniform and instantaneous power response. The elevated position of the dome provides better ‘air’ and frequency response that is smooth, pure and clear.
S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Midrange and Bass / Midrange Cones.Very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions.
IMS/SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System. This unique butyl-rubber driver fastening system found on all Studio Series drivers is a progressive system of critically placed isolation inserts and gaskets that decouple drivers from the speaker enclosure itself. This leading-edge ‘baffle-less’ technology reduces driver / enclosure interactions to inaudible levels.
High-Velocity Low-Noise Aluminum Ports. Bass efficiency and minimum turbulence distortion for cleaner and more articulate bass response.
Beautifully Sculpted Cabinets with Real Wood Veneer Finishes. Add a whole new dimension to the classic appeal of this series. Seven coats of the highest quality lacquer, hand-sanded between coats. Available in four luxurious real wood veneer finishes.
MONITOR SERIES 7
Rome Wasn’t Built in A Day. Neither Was Monitor.
It took three emperors and 15 years to build Rome’s colosseum, architecture that still elicits awe centuries later. And while they are not so bold as to compare the colosseum to the new Series 7, you have to admit the speakers look more than a little awesome in the backdrop of Ancient Rome. Good architecture will stand up well over time, as will good sonic architecture. Our Monitor Series 7 is a classic example. Now in its seventh iteration, each new generation is an opportunity for refinement: design innovations from our higher-priced reference lineups, reference-quality component parts, cabinets and even finishes! When it comes to getting value for your money, it doesn’t get better than Monitor Series 7. Since its inception, the Monitor Series has been a favorite of audiophiles on a budget — with Series 7, that hasn’t changed.
They can’t promise it will still be around in two thousand years, but they can promise it will play louder, plumb deeper, look smarter and sound better than any other brand in its price range.
The Building Blocks: Monitor Drivers
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Bass/Midrange Cones. First seen in their Paradigm Reference lineup, very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. In an affordable audio category – unbelievable quality!
Advanced S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes with powerful neodymium magnets and ferro-fluid cooling for increased power handling! Highs are more soaring and spacious, crystal clear and undiluted even at the higher bandwidths.
Wire Mesh Tweeter Guard and WaveGuide™. More Reference technology, ensuring a smooth, wide panorama of audiophile-quality sound. Wire mesh protection for the pure-aluminum tweeter.
Sophisticated crossovers in an affordable audiophile product! Again, it’s almost unheard of: polypropylene film or bipolar electrolytic capacitors, air core and laminated core inductors, high-power resistors. Crossover topologies are first and second-order with corresponding acoustic slopes of second and third-order providing optimal bandwidth and seamless integration as drivers cross over.
Long-Travel Motor/Magnet Structures. Despite fewer drivers than in previous series’, floor standing and center channel speakers actually plumb deeper. This is, in part, attributable to the advanced motor/magnet structures: high-temperature copper or aluminum wire voice coils (varies by model) wound on Kapton formers, oversized magnets with all components FEA-optimized.Monitor Surround 1
Foam-Rubber Elastomer Surrounds. Reference Studio Series geometry!
Help achieve that play loud AND play deep effect by allowing longer, expertly controlled cone travel.
Baffled about Baffles? Don’t Be!
For those of you who are wondering. A baffle is the surface on which the speakers or drivers are mounted. It prevents the front and rear sound waves from interfering with each other causing sound cancellation, as well as to absorb sound energy, particularly problematic reflected sound. So a speaker baffle is pretty darn important.
The new Monitor Series 7 baffle is a work of art – worthy of a spot in the arches of a coliseum. It boasts …
A clean aesthetic, nothing to see but the the beautiful drivers, no screws or fasteners visible
- Thick and rigid ¾˝ MDF across the lineup
- FEA-optimized (including a stress analysis) to overcome the limitations of the physical materials.
- A modal frequency analysis allowed us to deliver the most resonance-, vibration- and coloration-free Monitor Series cabinet to date!
- Critically tuned to the rest of the cabinet
- Rap on the baffle … you’ll hurt nothing but your knuckles
Step-up performance. Millenia™ speakers offer sophisticated state-of-the-art Paradigm Reference technology wrapped in a sleek lifestyle design to complement today’s flat-panel televisions. Satin-anodized pure-aluminum domes, mica-loaded polymer bass/midrange cones, polypropylene bass cones. Highly polished black chrome finish.
- A compact footprint without compromising bass output or bass extension.
- Trickle-down Paradigm Reference technology … despite cone size, the NLC™ non-limiting corrugated Santoprene® surrounds help cones move huge volumes of air for bass so loud and so deep it will send the cat running for cover.
- State-of-the-art room-tuning technology. Don’t worry about perfect placement, put the sub where it looks best and let Paradigm’s Perfect Bass Kit™ (sold separately) dial in perfect bass.
- Go wireless! Paradigm’s PT-2 transmitter (sold separately) can be used with up to four Monitor subwoofers simultaneously.
- The clean, modern aesthetic matches the new Monitor Series 7 speakers.
