The Downside
The Monitor 9s are naturally a little bright and, in certain circumstances, this might be a problem. If the downstream components are also bright, this characteristic will be emphasized and, depending on the listener, it might prove to be a fatiguing listening experience. My ears are extremely sensitive to high-frequency distortions, but even so, with careful system configuration and a little bit of tweaking, I was able to rein the Monitors in. It is important to note, though by no means a deal breaker.

With high efficiency, exceptional dynamics, stable performance at high volume, and an elegant, well-crafted exterior, Paradigm’s latest rendition of the Monitor 9 lives up to the company’s goal of “Affordable Hi-Fi.” This is truly an exceptional speaker that can provide enjoyment of a wide range of music styles and soundtracks, at a price level that’s quite easy to swallow. Even when compared to the industry’s giants, regardless of price, the Monitor 9s hold their ground and, when taking the price/performance ratio into account, these speakers clearly take the lead.
