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.

Our Take

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, eh-hem, change the prevailing industry paradigm. 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 170 is a compact twin driver, 2-Way outdoor speaker that is ideal where you need something for background music outside. They aren't particularly efficient at 88dB so you will need at least a 50 Watt RMS per channel amplifier not so much for volume levels 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.
