Bottom Line:   
This Review is for my 7se MkII

Fantastic speaker for all types of music, which is what makes these speakers so great but they excell at Rock, Pop and Rap. They are quite different from my Monitor 7, which sound more Front stage while the 7se are more center stage. The mid range is laid back so they are non fatiguing but those that want a midrange to be the extremely clear and present these are not the speakers for you. Instead, look at the Monitor, or Reference series. Soundstage is great, bass is very, very deep and tight, no need for a sub if they are placed properly. . Build quality is typical of most Candian made speakers it isw excellent. I've had my 7se mkii for over 20yrs and they still sound great I love Paradigms, life long fan for me.

Bottom Line:   
I brought these speakers from richer sounds for about £379.00 maybe a bit less but we are talking about 13 years ago now.
Apart from blowning one tweeter and having a mare terying to get the part replaced these speakers have stood the test of time.
I recently trie to replace them with Linn Komponent 110 speakers but the Linns made it back into the box in less than 2 hours and connected the Paradigms back up. OK they lack some of the highend clarity of the Linn's but due to the blown tweeter i can put some of that down to that.
The Paradigms giive masses of bass and no need for a seperate sub. These speakers kick out sounds that speakers twice the price would love to achieve.
Alll round they are a good speaker good value good sound and for those on a budget you can not go wrong.

Bottom Line:   
This is a excellent speaker with very detailed sound to it. Awesome deep and broad sound stage, and very neutral and life-like mid-range. Very crisp detailed highs never harsh, and very deep hard hitting bass and if your using the correct equipment to power them no need of a sub for the bottom end. They produce an awesome bass extension to them from the 6 1/2" drivers. I'm very happy with them as they have a very small foot print, but room filling and pleasing sound stage. Ever find a pair in good condition go for it as they are very nice speakers.

Bottom Line:   
It is excellent speaker, the best at its price range.
the sound is live and neutral, imaging is great. The bass response is excellent, tight, punchy and nerver boomby. Vocal is smooth, warm and sweet with beautiful highs.

The first i connect Paradigm with Marrantz PM80 + CD-67SE, the sound is very good - beautiful highs, sweet & smooth vocal, good bass but the low end of bass not tight as i want.
When change Ampli to Aura VA-200 Stingray, oh .. every thing is excellent. The bass is tight and punchy, the mid as not weet as Marantz but smoother, the soundstage is better. Thanks the Aura !
