As exhibitors at one of the world’s largest audio expositions, the three companies will be showcasing some of their most revered products.
Paradigm, Anthem, and MartinLogan Demo Products
Paradigm Persona 7F
The Persona Series of speakers, Paradigm’s flagship lineup, is noted for its use of beryllium, a diaphragm material typically found in speakers at high price points.
Stiffer and lighter than other premium diaphragm materials, beryllium enables superior transient response with low audible coloration.
Anthem STR Preamplifier
Also showcased will be the STR Preamplifier from Anthem, which offers a variety of connectivity options, advanced control, and automatic room equalization and bass management.
Features include USB audio input, leading-edge D/A conversion, MM and MC phono inputs, and balanced output for all channels including two subwoofers.
Its Home Theater Bypass function allows convenient operation when combined with a home theater system; it is engaged when the unit is in standby mode and supports two subwoofer as well as front-channel speakers.
The amp delivers 400 watts per channel, and each channel has a dedicated toroidal transformer and 16 bipolar output devices.
MartinLogan Neolith Loudspeakers
Neolith also features two substantial woofers: The front-firing 12-inch mid-bass woofer boasts a love moving mass relative to its size; on the bac of the Neolith is a 15-inch bass woofer playing beneath 60Hz.
The Neolith’s advanced topology Vojtko Crossover uses hand-selected components to optimize power handling.
MartinLogan will power the Neolith using a Pass Labs XP-22 preamplifier, XP-27 phono stage, and X600.8 amplifier.
