What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

PARADIGM se-series MkIII

In recent years Paradigm has become recognized as the market leader for performance/value. In fact, Paradigm speakers are consistently rated n.1 for price/value in surveys conducted by trade publication Inside Track. Simply put, Paradigm delivers better sound for less.
This tradition continues with the MkIII Performance Series. These elegant floor standing speakers offer outstanding musicalperformance along with a small "footprint" so they fit gracefully into any room setting.

TTD™ treated-textile domes and suspensions have extremely low mass (less than 0,28 gm) and very high internal damping for uniform and instantaneous response.
Low profile convex domes with critical faceplate coupling promotes a wide dispersion, maximally flat response resulting in a lerge "listening window".
High-temperature voice-coils, ventilated aluminium formers and ferro-fluid cooling/damping ensure superb dynamic response, low distortion and long service life.
Focused-field magnet assemblies ensure low distortion and greater power handling.

High-pressure diecast aluminum chassis' control mechanical vibration, ringing and flexing.
Co-polymer polypropylene cones combine a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio with excellent intarnal damping for smooth colourration-free response, extended bass performance and greater freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. In addition, polypropylene is unaffected by age, temperature or humidity. Unlike less expensive paper cones, PARADIGM'S sound quality will not deteriorate with time or changes in climate.
High-hysteresis progressively-damped synthetic butyl suspensions eliminate "edge-hole" distortion. This occurs when the cone's suspension begins to resonate in an uncontrolled manner. This major form of distortion has been isolated and eliminated.
High-temperature multi-layer voice-coils and Apical™ formers ensure better musical accuracy and reliability. Extended voice-coils provide excellent linear response regerdless of cone excursion.
Focused-field magnetic assemblies ensure low distortion and excellent linearity even under high output conditions.

Enclosure material resonances are controlled through the use of 19 mm acoustically inert high density hardboard.
Strategically located radial braces limit unwanted panel resonances, increases enclosure stiffness and prevents "ballooning" effects.
High velocity, low noise ports allow maximum bass efficiency with minimum turbulance distortion.
Better materials and engineering results in a "quieter" enclosure - one that does not produce its own sound but instead simply allows for the recreation of the original performance.
Hand selected, close tolerance, high power components are used in multi-element quasi-Butterworth configurations.
Frequency and fase-corrected for superb coherent sound.

Designing better sounding speakers demands a tremendous commitment to research. This research, however,must be rooted in a firm understanding of how we discren what we hear. Extensive listener preference tests conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) gives PARADIGM designers an in-depth understanding of how sound is perceived and clearly establishes what design parameters are most critical to what we hear. To meet or exceed these design parameters in the '90's, however, demands a very large investment in R&D.
Paradigm's R&D facility is very comprehensive. It includes one of the largest and finest anechoic chambers in the speaker industry wordwide, extensive state-of-the-art computer measuring equipment and multiple listening rooms of varying acoustic properties.
With thes facilities Paradigm designers are able to continually push the performance envelope of teh critical design parameters. The result? Better sounding speakers. Today Paradigm makes some of the finest sounding speakers available , regardless of price.
BUt when price is consideredParadigm speakers are nothing short of sensational. And yhis is clearly evident with the MkIII Performance Series. Hera is exceptional performance and simply unprecedented value.
