The more you start to learn about the world of high-end audio, the more you realize how endlessly complex it can be. Each person has a different taste when it comes to the sound they prefer, while the plethora of brand and price range can lead up to something more like a drug habit. Although a known money pit for those that have invested so much of their time and energy into the hobby, it always starts with the thought that it doesn’t take a dime to find out and learn about these equipment. A dangerous thought, as it always ends up at a point of no return where you come to the realization that it must be experienced first hand in your own living room. For those audiophiles that are ready to take the plunge into the world of high-end audio or even for those that are experienced but are on a budget, the Paradigm Monitor 7 v7 might be a solid place to start.
The Canadian home theater brand Paradigm has had a long history producing quality speakers, gaining popularity and a loyal following within the high-end audio and home theater industry. Their speakers are known to be best suited for home theaters with excellent imaging with a wide sound stage, offering a immersive experience on movie night. The Paradigm Monitor 7 v7 retains clarity even at high output and the new wire-mesh tweeter guard that we’ve seen in their Signature Series ensures a broader and smoother audiophile quality sound in larger spaces.
Although there are some limitations in terms of sound quality, the relatively affordable price of $450 for each tower is at that sweet spot where it won’t break the bank for those just getting into the game while providing an entry level audiophile quality listening experience.
