First unveiled at the CEDIA Expo in Denver last month [September], the new Prestige Series from Canadian hi-fi speaker manufacturer Paradigm is coming to the UK and Ireland this November.

In the new range, you'll find three floorstanders (Prestige 95F, 85F and 75F); a bookshelf speaker (Prestige 15B); and two centre channels (Prestige 55C and 45C).

The new range draws on the company's 30 years of speaker-manufacturing heritage, while also implementing "new technologies and expert engineering".

One of the technological innovations is Paradigm's own Perforated Phase-Aligning Tweeter Lens, which is designed to both "protect" the aluminium dome tweeter and act as a Phase Plug.

In terms of design, the Paradigm Prestige series takes on a minimalistic look based on sharp lines and "intricate detailing". The non-resonant cabinets are all handmade in Canada.
