Introduction to the Paradigm Millenia CT 2 Speakers and Subwoofer Review

Ever hear of Paradigm? Not many people can say they haven't. However, the Canadian speaker company known as Paradigm was in its early day’s one of the best kept secrets in audio. I remember hearing and seeing Paradigm products in the late 1980’s. Back then I was impressed with their clean detailed sound and the quality of the speaker drive units. Paradigm from early on designed and manufactured their speaker drive units and cabinets. Soon the company began to garner excellent reviews worldwide for their quality build and stereo sound at the price. Now fast forward to today and this spring when FedEx dropped off one of the latest speaker designs from Paradigm, the Millenia CT 2 system. On Paradigm’s web site, www.paradigm.com, the company explains that they design products for every need and the Millenia are designed to complement modern flat panel TV theatre systems. Secrets gave Paradigm a Best of Award 2013 for the MilleniaOne CT. I believe that electronics should help simplify and add quality to our lives. Let us see if Paradigm has succeeded in doing so I thought to myself, and with that in mind I began to open the box FedEx dropped off at my door.
