The Paradigm Stylus 370-SM is the second largest "stereo-input" model in the range and will fill a pretty big entertainment area with ease. Whether it's Winter or Summer a big part of the Australian lifestyle is outdoors. When it comes to outdoor sound, Paradigm are again the experts.
Whether you are relaxing in the garden, on the terrace, or by the pool, the experience is enhanced by music. Why limit the enjoyment of your hi-fi to the house when there are great opportunities to enjoy the music in the great outdoors? All models we sell have specially treated cabinets to resist harmful UV rays, banana/bare wire type connections and a swivel bracket. Contemporary Stylus speakers are an easy, stylish and surprisingly affordable way to bring the Paradigm high-performance sound you enjoy indoors…outdoors. They’re weather resistant — so install them outdoors and leave them there.

Stereo Sound: Stylus high-performance “SM” (stereo/mono) speakers offer rich pure-fidelity dual-channel sound from a single speaker. Their unique Dual-Directional Soundfield provides wider-than-normal dispersion, a particularly important consideration outdoors where there are no walls or ceiling to contain sound. These speakers are ideal in small outdoor areas less suited to a stereo pair, or where a single speaker is preferred.
In larger areas, multiple “SM” speakers eliminate sound imbalances that occur with stereo sound as people move around, or are seated closer to one speaker than the other. For details on all placement options provided by Stylus “SM” speakers, please contact us.
Pure-Titanium Dome Tweeters: Superior PTD Pure-Titanium Domes with Unique Controlled WaveGuide Faceplates deliver smooth, clear, extended response. Ferro-fluid cooled and damped.
Injection-Moulded Polypropylene Cones: Superior ICP Injection-Molded Co-Polymer Polypropylene Cones. Oversized magnets and superior motor structures ensure a very detailed, authentic midrange.
PolyGlass Reinforced Enclosures: Superior PolyGlass Mineral-Filled Reinforced Enclosures. Fully sealed (no ports) for protection against the outdoor environment … even under adverse weather conditions!
Brave The Elements: Weather, Water, UV-Resistant Aluminum Grilles stainless steel / brass hardware, gold-plated binding posts and stainless steel / polymer mounting brackets.
In The News
This review is on the normal 370, but you will get an idea of how the series performs: "Overall --- brilliant sound quality all over the back yard. It has made working in the garden even more of a pleasure and having a spa to sooth the tired muscles even more relaxing. Can't wait to throw a huge party to see if the neighbors like them too ;-) If you like to work and play outside then don't even think about it --- install good quality outdoor speakers before summer gets here." — Bob Hetherington, Home Toys
Did you know that Paradigm loudspeakers are still designed, engineered, and crafted just outside Toronto, Canada? It’s been that way since 1982. That’s when co-founders Jerry VanderMarel and Scott Bagby decided to change the prevailing industry paradigm - thus the name. They wanted to build high performance loudspeakers right near their home. They wanted to custom-design their speaker components based on science, not speculation. And they wanted to make them available at prices that everyone would appreciate. We totally agree with the philosophy and although we sell other brands that have similar ethics, long-time customer loyalty has seen the brand a favourite with our customers for decades.
The Stylus 370-SM is a largish three driver, 2-Way outdoor speaker and is ideal where you have an odd-shaped entertainment area and find placement difficult and can only use one speaker or alternatively have the space but demand beautiful sound across the zone or zones. At 91dB efficiency (about average) you will need at least a 50 Watt RMS - preferably about 80 Watts) per channel amplifier, not so much for power as the 370-SM's only handle 70 Watts RMS max in Mono (35+35 Stereo) but to minimise amplifier distortion. They come with speaker wire binding posts which will accept decent cable. Our recommendation would be QED 79 strand as it is reasonably priced, can be run over long distances (upto 20 metres) and is resistant to oxidisation.
