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.

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
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
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,
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
