When a long-established brand like Canadian company Paradigm develops a new series of speakers you can be certain that they have put every effort and all their experience and expertise into the design. This "3-Pack" is for those who want On-Wall or Table top speakers up front with typically In-Ceiling speakers out back. 

Overview

With a first look over the stylish and diminutive Paradigm MilleniaOne 3.0 Speaker system, you may reasonably conclude that it's just another cute looking player in the typical and over-supplied lifestyle speaker market. But the saying "never judge a book by its cover" is very true here. The Paradigm MilleniaOne 3.0 Speaker system is part of Paradigm’s ‘Reference’ collection … cool style and superb quality that includes ‘cost no object’ technology at below what you’d pay for any other genuine high-end speaker system with this much cool stuff included. The sculpted Die-Cast Aluminum enclosures, integrated baffle and chassis allow larger, more powerful drivers … all part of the grand design to bring you all the sonic benefits of a larger speaker, but in pixie proportions!

Compact Satellites: These feature a heavy die-cast aluminum enclosure that is acoustically inert. This is important as it minimises resonances which can destroy the all-important imaging. Included are both heavy metal bases for shelf mounting as well as wall-mounting brackets. The centre speaker comes with a base that allows it to be horizontally placed on a table or shelf. The speakers are a 2-Driver, 2-Way design and include a 25mm S-PAL (satin-anodised pure aluminum) proprietary Paradigm tweeter that has a powerful motor structure and oversize magnet. Vocals are smooth, clear and superbly realistic. Stratospheric highs from physical proportions that can only be described as pixie! High-frequency performance equal to the best at its size and price on the market today.

Bass/Mid-Range Driver: The tweeter is paired with a 102mm S-PAL bass/midrange driver that will probably deliver more bass than we bet you’d expect out of this pixie packet speaker! Any system sinks or swims on its midrange — it’s the part of the frequency spectrum your ears hear best … most high-end systems have a good midrange, only the best have a great one! One listen and you’ll know the Millenia One sits in the category of greatness. Vocals, instrumentals … they all sound fabulous. 

Interestingly, the woofer surround overlaps the tweeter frame-plate allowing both to sit closer together and "blend" nicely. All speakers come with a snug fitting perforated metal cover that is held in by a thin rubber gasket that eliminates any rattles. On the rear you will find some exeptionally (for the speaker size) heavy-duty speaker wire terminals. These will accept certain model banana plugs but will also accept bare wire like QED 79 strand which would be our recommendation.

Our Take

The Paradigm mission is to rid the world of bad sound … and by ‘bad’ they mean the kind of stuff the big box, mass market stores stock, the ones that pretend to be dangerous and big-bass mean, but in the end as Bob Gassal from Paradigm reminds us "couldn’t give a fish in a fish bowl a fair shake!" And Bob, although you are now resting in peace, we still haven't forgotten your many words of wisdom and the drive you had at Paradigm to push MilleniaOne to its completion.

So, what are you waiting for? Give us a call and make an appointment to have a listen or even just to discuss the suitability in your home. And while you’re at it, add the funky new MilleniaSub (sold separately) for those special effects and deep bass thrills and chills in a classy surround sound system.
