With its sleek, contemporary design, superb setup versatility and high-end technology, Paradigm’s Millenia Series marches into the market as the next-generation lifestyle speaker line.
The horizontally positioned 3-in-1 Millenia 20 Trio is three main speakers in one sleek cabinet. Picture one long (it’s nine drivers long!) horizontal speaker that functions as three speakers — the main left speaker, main right speaker AND the center speaker. The Trio is ideal in rooms where space is at a premium; where a modern “minimalist” look is sought; or simply where a single speaker is preferred. For 5.1 or 7.1 surround setups the new Millennia ADP offers Paradigm’s very successful “reverberant” soundfield, physically presented in the Millenia lifestyle look.
Although each model’s unique design is meant to accommodate different personal preferences and room placements, the high-end technology is consistent across the line; adding brains to beauty. Millenia Series speakers (except the ADP*) feature a composite MDF/aluminum baffle and acoustically inert extruded-aluminum enclosure. The side curvature provides exceptional structural integrity with no significant resonances. A fraction of the thickness of a standard wood enclosure, the extruded design affords all the performance benefits of a larger speaker, but in a significantly slimmer package.
S-PAL Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum domes paired with low-mass treated textile suspensions allow for exceptional rigidity so that high frequencies are spacious, clear, and well extended. The progressive MLP™ Mica-Loaded Co-Polymer Polypropylene bass/midrange cones promote midrange performance that is accurate, detailed, and critically revealing. The precision-engineered mineral-filled polypropylene bass cones enjoy a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and excellent internal damping properties, designed for higher sensitivity and higher output with minimal distortion.
