Paradigm Monitor 9
I recently moved to Toronto and bought a pair and wow, great speakers.
They are not ugly by any means and are definitely in the ‘above average-nice’ range (8/10) and looks will impress the neighbours, solid terminals and spiked and heavy too. Sound wise they sound great bags of solid and taut bass, wide mid-range, great clear treble – yes, they need running in first, but once a few days has passed they just sound perfect. A friend of mine came to stay and has a pair of $2500 speakers and agreed these are a genuinne bargain.

Excelentes caixas. Meu sistema composto de:
Paradigm Monitor 9 (frontais)
Paradigm Monitor 3 (surround)
Paradigm CC 350 (central)
Paradigm PS 1000 (subwoofer)

Tal conjunto toca incrivelmente bem, com uma uniformidade de timbre perfeita, sendo que o ponto forte destas caixas (Monitor 9), para mim, sua qualidade nos graves, que podem dispensar inclusive o uso de um subwoofer para audio de msica em estreo.

Vale a compra, para mim uma caixa altamente recomendvel.

Murilo

Value and quality in a speaker. Wow.

I have paired these with my mini-monitors and my CC-350 center channel and i am very impressed at the volume with little distortion. And i have a cheapy Pioneer reciever to boot, so i am very, very pleased.

These Speakers are great!!!
I just bought a pair and to be honest they are beautiful looking and beautiful sounding.

The bass is very strong!! Maybe a bit to strong for my room.
I really have to congradulate this Canadian company for making such great speakers at such a great prices!

They perform great!!!

I recently got a pair of Paradigm Monitor 9s and let me tell you: WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. They sounded OK at the dealer but once I brought them home, the nightmare begun. Paradigm has a serious quality control problem. First-off, one of the upper woofers was blown and developed serious rattle and clipping just about at any level of music. After close examination I also noticed that 2 retaining screws for that woofer were not holding at all and I could just pull them off with my fingers. After more listening I noticed that the sound image is actually shifted to one side and is not centered. After some tests, cable replacement, speaker shifting from one side to another, tone tests, I realized that one speaker has some %50 less output from the midrange and up. Probably some crossover problem. These are brand new factory sealed speakers !

I really wanted to like these speakers and was impressed by all the good reviews and stuff. Now I'm very disappointed and will return them for a refund or exchange for a pair of NHT Supertwos or something else. I totally lost my confidence in Paradigm. Is this the kind of stuff one would expect from a $750 pair of speakers ? Maybe Paradigm used to be number one but now, I have the feeling they're just into mass production poor quality speakers.

I'm really sorry that I have to post this review and don't like to drag in the dirt any product nor company for nothing, but these are the facts and are not subject to interpretation.

Paradigm Monitor 9
Great speakers. I haven't had any problems with bloated bass (but then again, I spent a lot of time positioning the speakers and I have a large room to work with). The only flaw I can find in these speakers, is the upper-midrange. It's a little rough, but it's not bad, especially when considering the price of these speakers. Overall, great speakers!

These speakers have painfully bright highs and boomy lows -no midrange at all. There is a good reason why you don't find 8" drivers in 2-way speakers.

Paradigm Monitor 9
I listened the monitor 9's and I thought they provided a good full sound with tight bass and clear highs. They definitly get my vote for a good buy. And by the way to anyone reading these reviews, don't just take the advice of some person putting in a comment, because it is probably not a educated comment!!!!
Anyways everybody's ear is different and thats why we have so many different speaker companies making speakers. Paradigm did a good job in my books!!!
