Although each piece may be purchased separately, Paradigm’s Cinema is now available in two basic configurations, the Cinema 90 and Cinema 70 systems, each comprised of four identical satellite speakers, a center channel and a subwoofer.
Either system blends naturally into most home décors because of their unassuming appearance and subtle styling Each speaker in the system employs MagneShield(tm), so Cinema can be used safely with any computer or home theater, while enhancing any television, gaming, DVD or music listening experience.
Paradigm has improved the technology behind Cinema by using new materials for the bass/midrange and high-frequency drivers, resulting in cleaner sound and higher power output.
Cinema 90 packs a 4-1/2-inch polypropylene cone bass/midrange driver and a 5/8-inch coated-polymer-composite (CPC) dome tweeter. The Cinema CC has two 4-1/2-inch polypropylene cone bass/midrange drivers and a 5/8-inch CPC dome tweeter. The powerful performance of the PDR-10 is more than ready for the challenging dynamics of a home theater environment, pumping out 100 watts RMS of smooth, deep bass through its10-inch carbon-fiber-reinforced cone.
Cinema 70 is an even smaller high-performance package, manufactured with the same high quality parts. The speakers consist of 3-1/2-inch bass/midrange drivers, 5/8-inch high frequency drivers and a PDR-8 subwoofer rounds out the system.
The Cinema 90 and Cinema 70 are available in black, white or silver and retail for $936 and $716, respectively. Individual speaker prices are $229/pair for Cinema 90, $149/pair for Cinema 70, $129 for Cinema CC. The PDR-8 is $299 and the PDR-10 is $349.
