Paradigm Reference Millenia LP On-Wall Speakers Preview
Paradigm Electronics Inc. used CES to introduce a new speaker to its Paradigm Reference series with the Millenia LP on-wall LCR speaker. The ultra-thin (1-1/2") cabinet profile is slim enough to hang with the sleekest LED, LCD, or plasma flat-panel displays, even meshing with projector screens while designed to reproduce music, soundtracks and dialogue with accuracy.
Lifestyle speakers are in demand and the Millenia LP caters to audio enthusiasts building a system piece by piece since each speaker can be used for left/right or center channel sound, just by configuring vertically or horizontally, depending on preference. The Millenia LP LCR delivers for those in search of non-architectural, minimalistic, audio options since it requires no custom speaker cut-out holes. Simply cut out small holes for the speaker wire and mount the speakers to the wall for a clean LCR set up.
Built with Paradigm Reference technology, the Millenia LP features convex S-PALTM satin-anodized pure aluminum domes, curved mineral-filled polypropylene bass/midrange cones and other award-winning design elements. Three Reference Millenia LPs can be paired with the sonically-matched Millenia ADP surrounds and a Millenia Sub or Seismic 110 to create an acoustically immersive and aesthetically pleasing 5.1 surround sound set-up.
"Our Reference Millenia series remains successful because of the design team's ability to adapt to changing consumer demands. With HD displays getting thinner, some people want high-performance speakers like the Millenia LP that hang with an equally low profile and yet do not require invasive construction."
- Mark Aling, director of marketing for Paradigm
The Millenia LP comes in Black Gloss finish and will be available spring 2011. The US MSRP is still TBA. For more information on Paradigm, please visit www.paradigm.com.
