Paradigm Reference Signature S1 loudspeakers

These tiny yet stylish monitors were a pain to fit onto their dedicated stands, but once everything was dialed in we noticed that the S1s imaged “like nobody’s business.” Designed for use with a subwoofer, the Paradigms still managed to sound wonderfully balanced on their own when matched with warmer (i.e. tubed) amplification. These are also a natural choice for an impressive and satisfying desktop system.
