Paradigm Persona 9H Reference Speaker
Musical Transparency. Personified.
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.
Persona 9H, the flagship of the Persona Series, is the best-sounding loudspeaker Paradigm have ever conceived. The Persona 9H features Truextent Beryllium 1” tweeter and 7” midrange drivers, each with perforated phase-aligning lenses. These passive mid and high frequency section delivers more accurate wide-spectrum dynamics (from a detailed well-blended 40kHz down to a deep 500Hz) while remaining virtually transparent; your audio alone takes centre stage.
The powered bass section utilizes Ultra-High-Excursion Differential Drive 8.5” woofers in a balanced vibration-cancelling configuration (two front-firing, two rear-firing). Each woofer pair is powered by a separate DSP-controlled 700 W RMS amplifier for a total of 1,400 W RMS (2,800 W Dynamic Peak), and combined with exclusive technology like Anthem Room Correction (ARC) capability for precise optimization of bass performance for any listening environment.
