Paradigm Persona 3F [Expired]


no longer for sale

For sale is an as new, mint condition pair of Paradigm Persona 3F floor standing speakers in High Gloss Vanta Black.  I am the original owner.  These speakers simply sound amazing! They mate well to all types of music with no ‘persona’ of their own which explains why both Stereophile and  The Absolute Sound, among many other magazines, love Paradigm Persona speakers!  They sound even better with a pair of Paradigm Prestige 1000SW subs.  The set plays +/- 2db from 20-45k Hz.

Included in this sale is 1 pair of speakers, boxes, manuals and all original packaging.

No trades please. Paypal add 3% in US and 4% in Canada. Paypal only unless you have positive feedback on Audiogon. Feel free to send me any questions you may have. Buy with confidence from a 20 year audiogoner!!! Thanks for looking, Kevin

Note: I can ship these speakers in the US, deliver them in the greater tristate area.

Please also see my ad for a pair of Paradigm Prestige 1000SW subs and Kimber Bifocal speaker cables.  They make a GREAT combination!

Reviews:

The Paradigm Persona 3F sounds big – sound comes off the speaker wide and deep. The dispersion is excellent, voices are articulate and instruments tonally believable. It makes me wonder what the Persona 5, 7 or even 9H would improve upon!? Secrets of Home Theater & High Fidelity

Overview:

Experience an unprecedented level of realism. Our flagship PERSONA® line is a showcase of vanguard materials and our most advanced technologies, all entirely designed, engineered, and completely Crafted in Canada. Persona celebrates the technological abilities of Paradigm engineering, untamed. Its exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail makes a bold, beautiful statement. No other speaker in this class can match the performance innovation of Persona.

Can luxury be a value? We believe so. One of the keys to Persona’s luxury and value is our use of Beryllium. Beryllium is the absolute best diaphragm material, and Persona features Truextent Pure Beryllium foil, specially formulated to be exponentially stiffer and significantly lighter than other premium diaphragm materials. It delivers superior transient response, virtually transparent performance, and vanishingly low audible coloration. Also, it's a material usually found only in much more expensive speakers. Luxurious? Yes. But also a surprising performance value in Persona.

Beryllium is a rare chemical element (Be) with low mass, high tensile strength and high thermal stability. It is incredibly rigid and lightweight; everything an audio engineer desires in a speaker cone.

In fact, Beryllium has been used in the audio industry since the 1970s. But because of its use in only the finest (and most expensive) audio equipment, it has retained a certain “cult” status.

Precise control of the Truextent manufacturing process produces pure Beryllium foil with a highly uniform grain structure; this is many times stiffer, yet far less dense, than more common cone materials. In industry testing, our Beryllium cone material exhibits substantial improvements in durability, speed, and reduced interference. It can add more than an octave of distortion-free output.

In the Paradigm's Persona, tandem matched Beryllium drivers reveal the full range of high performance. Persona is the only loudspeaker in its class to utilize Beryllium material for both midrange and tweeter drivers.

Every model in the Persona Series features dual Truextent Beryllium driver systems, and each model achieves a truly unexpected level of high-resolution detail, depth and dynamics thanks in part to rare, extraordinary Beryllium.

he Persona Series is completely designed, engineered, and built at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility just outside of Toronto, Canada. It's made by people who love great audio (just like you). From the hand-chosen, specially engineered components and materials, to the precise workmanship of the non-resonant cabinets with their beautiful premium-grade finishes, Persona is truly hand-built for performance.

Sure, we could say "Made in Canada," or "Manufactured in Canada." But we believe that building loudspeakers is an art. Everyone at Paradigm shares a passion for crafting speakers, and it's from this intense passion that "Crafted in Canada" was proudly born.
