For sale is a pair of highly regarded Paradigm 7SE MkIII floor standing speakers. Also included is a high quality set of floor spikes for both speakers.
These have been my main hi-fi speakers for a few years now and are hard to find these in the UK. I think you would have to spend a lot to beat the sound of these speakers.
They sound very nice with all types of music and they can deliver very deep bass without the need of an additional subwoofer and would be ideal for use in a large room. The speakers are in good used condition. There is some damage on some of the corners (see photo's) the damage does not affect the sound.
Overall the speakers are in good condition for their age and are working perfectly. Paradigm 7se Mk3 is a Canadian three-way speaker system of bass reflex type (bass reflex output is on the faceplate). Design color decision is recognizable: the body and grilles are black; the dynamics panel is silver-grey.Translucent diffusers as though shine on the background, completely keeping the feeling of high quality corporate style. The speaker's sizes are 850x210x360 mm (33.4"x8.2"x14.1), in other words having rather large depth, they look quite slim. The diameter of high-frequency dome is 30 mm (1.1"); the diameters of both low-frequency oscillators are 170 mm (6.7"). The range of amplifier power is 15-175 W for the channel. The system allows using "bi-wiring" and "bi-amping" connection.
Paradigm is especially good at low part of the range: low-tuned phase inverter meets the challenges well, providing admirable border of almost 30 Hz. Frequency characteristic confirms this too. The experts noticed colorful volume basses, expressive sound of bass-drum and kettledrum. The scales of delicacy variations don't cause special alarm. Characteristic recession of about 2 Hz doesn't look threatening, but, probably, it will be noticed by experienced audiophile - the expert of flute or trombone (when the amplifier works in linear mode).
Rational system support, by the amplifier, provides a decent sound of almost every musical composition. Speaker's sensitivity up to 1 kHz is good: 89 dB, 84 dB in high part of the range.
There are no problems with stereo effects; the system doesn't suffer from excessive direction which is well evident on AFR, measured at 45 and 90 degrees to the acoustic axis of the speaker. The impedance characteristic gives the phase inverter frequency of 30 Hz.Minimal input impedance is about 4 ohm, rated impedance is close to 8 ohm (the producer gives the meaning of 6 ohm). Advanced drive units and a sophisticated dividing network ensures excellent clarity and imaging. Twin bass/mid drivers provide high dynamic power ability. The 7se MkIII exemplifies the idea that strict adherence to the principles of simplicity and finesse in design will result in a product whose performance is second to none at a price with which none can compete. 3-driver, 2-way bass reflex, quasi-3rd order resistive port.
