Highly respected speaker manufacturer, Paradigm has been hand-crafting its products in its home country of Canada in its own factory since 1982. Founded by ambitious audio wizards Jerry VanderMarel and Scott Bagby, they wanted to create high-performance speakers on their own terms with no compromises.
Jerry, an experienced veteran of consumer electronics and loudspeaker sales, partnered with Scott, a loudspeaker designer with a history of innovation, and they went back to the drawing board and created a ground-breaking new speaker. To give their creation an edge, they tapped into university audio researchers and detailed scientific findings from the audio studies conducted by the National Research Council of Canada. Launching their first products in 1982 to great critical reception, the rest is history.
The aim was to achieve a level of performance that would erase the speaker itself from the equation. Pure, lifelike audio, uninhibited by coloration, unrestrained in its ability to translate power into sound, was the goal. The company also wanted to deliver this at a price that would allow anyone to experience the magic.
Carrying on its aim to combine science, design, and technology to reveal a new Paradigm of audio performance, the range has grown over the years, providing a huge choice of speakers suitable for a huge range of uses. Using patented innovations, proprietary materials, and in-house Canadian manufacturing, today's Paradigm speakers make a bold, luxurious statement, bringing music and home cinema to life in its own unmistakable style.
