Paradigm Unveils Reference Hybrid Millenia 10 and 20, In/On -wall Speakers

Paradigm Reference Hybrid Millenia 10 and 20 partially recess into the wall to create ultra-thin profiles that complement the thinnest flat-panel displays.

ONTARIO, CANADA - June 18, 2009 - Ultra -slim flat -panel television displays finally have met their sonic and aesthetic match, as Paradigm Electronics announces its first -ever partly -in -wall/partly -out -of -the -wall speaker designs. The new Reference Hybrid Millenia™ 10 and 20 integrate reference -quality build materials into a form factor that protrudes less than an inch and a half from the wall!

Conventional on -wall speakers jut out four to five inches, dwarfing the depth of most wall -mounted flat -panel displays. Although great sound is paramount, floor space and visual appeal (or discretion) are important secondary factors in the purchase of speakers. Paradigm's new models are slim enough to visually complement ever -slimming flat panels for years to come, even with the grills on. By partially recessing a Millenia Hybrid into the wall, the speaker gains a deeper, more stable enclosure with inherent performance advantages over traditional on -wall mounting techniques.

Each Paradigm hybrid speaker is engineered to incorporate the predictable effects of a wall on the speaker's frequency response. The speaker's pre -attached glass -reinforced injection -molded polymer (GRIP™) bracket is optimized to exploit maximum wall area for a complete absence of vibration, even when performing at maximum output.

Like all Paradigm® Reference Millenia speakers, the Hybrids' high -frequency drivers exhibit timbral clarity and transparency comparable to the very best electrostatic or ribbon designs. Midrange drivers deliver an accurate, lifelike and critically revealing performance with extraordinary detail. Bass response, free of cone standing waves and micro distortions and reinforced by the wall, offers exceptional articulation. Add Millenia 10 Hybrids or Millenia ADPs as surround/rear speakers and then complete your Millenia home theater system with room -pounding bass from a Paradigm® Reference subwoofer.

Hybrid Millenia 20s and 10s, designed for two -channel or multi -channel configurations, can be mounted horizontally or vertically. Their simple three -step installation process is made even easier by the mounting templates that securely cradle each speaker. Once the template is in, the speaker is wired and adjusted to cover the cutout. Tighten four screws to hold the speaker in place, and installation is complete.
