Default Paradigm Reference's Studio Esprit Brings a New Perspective to On-Wall Sound

Paradigm Electronics Inc. introduces the Paradigm® Reference Studio Esprit L/R and Esprit C center channel, which provide unmatched flexibility and performance for on-wall applications.

Paradigm’s unrelenting commitment to innovation in speaker design via in-house testing and research is in full evidence with these new Esprit models. Its state-of-the-art Studio Series v.4 technology and proprietary feature set bring to life a remarkable hybrid on-wall speaker that can be mounted, tilted, placed on a stand or shelved to serve any aesthetic without sacrificing sonic excellence.

Paradigm's proprietary ABEC™ Automatic Boundary Effects Compensation technology, the "brains" of each Esprit speaker, accommodates placement on a wall or the new high-performance GS-40 stand. When wall-mounted, the speaker's correct on-wall (Boundary Effect) response is automatically engaged to ensure natural, uncolored delivery of music and highly intelligible dialogue. When mounted on the GS-40 stand, the speaker automatically tailors sound for correct "free-air" frequency response to maintain performance.

Each Esprit model comes with adjustable wall-mounting brackets that allow for angling and tilting of the speakers. A new design element called Mirror-Imaged Channel Matching enables listeners to angle the Esprit L/R models for better imaging and a heightened sense of spaciousness, or to tilt the Esprit C center channel model up or down for optimized clarity and dialogue intelligibility. A three-way crossover design contributes to exceptional on- and off-axis dispersion, extended dynamic range and seamless timbre matching between front and center speakers and matching surround/rear speakers.

Paradigm’s Reference Studio Esprit models come in a choice of wood veneers, including a cherry wood veneer inlay with silver cabinet and gray grille or a rosenut wood veneer inlay with dark gray cabinet and black grille. Paradigm also offers a lacquered piano black inlay with dark gray cabinet and black grille. The GS-40 stand for L/R models comes in silver or black and features an extruded aluminum post and weighted cast-aluminum base with decorative trim piece. Adjustable locking spikes provide stability at the base and can be replaced by rubber feet. The Esprit C comes with adjustable TV-Top/Shelf-mounting supports.

Studio Series v.4 Technologies:
• 1” (25mm) G-PAL™ Gold Anodized Pure Aluminum Domes
• 4-1/2” (115mm) S-PAL™ Satin Anodized Pure-Aluminum Midrange Cones
• Anodized Solid-Aluminum Phase Plugs
• Two 7” (178mm) Mineral-filled Co-polymer Polypropylene Bass Cones
• Elegant Bronze-anodized Cast-Aluminum Chassis (all drivers)
• Massive Heatsinks with AVS™ Airflow Ventilation System Cooling (midrange and bass drivers)
• Phase-Coherent Precision Crossover Networks (including close-tolerance air-core inductors, high-power resistors, polypropylene capacitors)
• Proprietary IMS/SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Driver Mounting System

FMV price of the Paradigm Reference Studio Esprit is $1099.
