Paradigm to demonstrate Persona 3F alongside Anthem’s newly introduced STR Preamplifier and Power Amplifier

Mississauga, Ontario – September 26, 2017 – Paradigm Electronics Inc., global leader in speaker design and manufacturing, will be demonstrating the Persona 3F loudspeaker in room 9007 at the 14th annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) 2017, running October 6 to 8, 2017. Anthem, manufacturer of award-winning high-end audio/video equipment, will also debut their new STR Preamplifier and STR Power Amplifier in room 9007.

RMAF is the largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the United States, featuring 160 exhibit spaces representing more than 400 companies. Located in the Denver Marriott Tech Center in Denver, Colorado, RMAF attendees will be able to hear live demonstrations of the Persona 3F, STR Preamplifier, and STR Amplifier.

In addition to Paradigm speakers and Anthem electronics, Transparent will be providing Super speaker and balanced interconnect cables, Premium USB cable and power cords, and PowerWave power conditioning. High-resolution music will be streamed to the Anthem STR Preamplifier’s built-in digital-to-audio converter.

Anthem STR Preamplifier and STR Amplifier

Announced in September at CEDIA 2017, RMAF will mark the debut of the STR Preamplifier and STR Amplifier—the first-time members of the public have had an opportunity to hear these powerful new 2-channel components.

The STR Preamplifier offers robust connection options, advanced control, and refinements in a single, easy-to-use component which includes a rare feature in stereo components — automatic room equalization and bass management in the form of highly effective Anthem Room Correction (ARC™). Packed with functions such as USB audio input, leading-edge D/A conversion, customizable bass manager for seamless integration with mono or stereo sub outputs, MM and MC phono inputs, the STR Preamplifier offers far more than the average preamplifier. It also provides balanced output for all channels including two subwoofers. The Home Theater Bypass function which allows convenient operation when combined with a home theater system is also unconventional in that which takes effect when the unit is in standby while supporting two subwoofers as well as the fronts through XLR and RCA connection.

The STR Power Amplifier is the smartly designed keystone to a world-class two-channel sound system, doling out 400 Watts per channel into 8 ohms with both driven, with continuous 2-ohm capability of 800 W per channel for true no-holds-barred performance with the most demanding musical content and speakers. Each channel gets its own toroidal transformer and sixteen bipolar output devices to deliver a continuous and reliable supply of pure, clean low noise power. The input stage, a proprietary input topology and unique departure from commonly used circuits, consists of a complementary active-load cascoded feedback arrangement for reduced distortion, exceptionally linear response, and superior bandwidth.

The entire STR Series is proudly designed, engineered, and Crafted in Canada.

The STR Preamplifier retails for $3,999/each US MSRP and will begin shipping Fall 2017.

The STR Power Amplifier retails for $5,999/each US MSRP and will begin shipping Fall 2017.

Paradigm Persona 3F

Paradigm’s Persona line was released in late 2016 and has been praised by reviewers and audiophiles. The flagship Persona 9H received a 2017 CES Innovation Award, as well as a Golden Ear Award 2017 from The Absolute Sound.

Developed over five years, this flagship lineup, entirely designed, engineered, and Crafted in Canada, provides an unprecedented level of realism and transparency. One of the keys to Persona is the use of Beryllium, the absolute best diaphragm material, typically found only in speakers costing considerably more. Specifically formulated to be exponentially stiffer and significantly lighter than other premium diaphragm materials, beryllium enables superior transient response and virtual transparency, with low audible coloration.

The Paradigm Persona 3F retails for $10,000/pair US MSRP and is now shipping.
