About Paradigm Monitor SE Atom Speakers

The Monitor SE Series is the goldilocks speaker range from Paradigm. Not too big, not too small, conservatively styled yet classy, impeccable fit and finish, the choice of Matte Black or Gloss White and a range to suit most domestic situations. Best of all, the price is spot on, showing you don't need to spend a fortune to get a great all 'round product at a truly affordable price. Go Paradigm.

The stylish and affordable Paradigm Monitor SE Atom Standmount Speaker (can also be located on a shelf or sideboard) is a perfect introduction to the world of high-performance audio. Sure it’s packed with state-of-the-art technology, the kind of stuff only found on speakers that cost much more. But more important, the new Monitor SE Series is part of the Paradigm family of high-performance loudspeakers, and just like all Paradigm loudspeakers it’s engineered to change the way you think and feel about your entertainment.

Built on Research:Monitor SE loudspeakers benefit from Paradigm’s fundamental research into the science of sound. This research, conducted by Paradigm in conjunction with the Canadian National Research Council, has resulted in many of the innovative materials and patented audio technologies found throughout Paradigm speakers. Imagine lifelike musical performance in any listening space; breathtaking effects and realistic imaging details that bring your music & movies to life.

Technology Backed by Science

Tweeters: Paradigm X-PAL Pure-Aluminium Dome Tweeters with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA) Lens. This patent pending design acts as a refined phase plug, blocking a wide range of out-of-phase frequencies which increases and smooths output without colouring the sound. Both visually stunning and functional, Paradigm's signature PPA Lens technology improves performance while also protecting the tweeter from getting damaged.

Mid/Bass Drivers: High-performance mineral-filled polypropylene cones with inverted dust caps are lightweight and rigid. Downroll surrounds give them a clean, low-profile look.

Enclosures: Beautiful Monitor SE speaker cabinets, with their unmistakably European fit and finish, complement today’s most stylish décor. The Paradigm Monitor SE is available in high-gloss white or a matte black finish.

In The News

"One aspect of these speakers that has not been overlooked is their basic linearity. They play incredibly loud for a small speaker, yet at low level, they hold the stereo image together, remaining highly involving. Again, something that a number of high price/high pedigree speakers can not accomplish.

Paradigm has trimmed the budget in all the right places. The cabinets and binding posts (i.e. all the fancy stuff) are functional, with a matte finish. Not a penny has been wasted on unnecessary bling – all the performance is inside the box. And the more time spent listening to the Monitor SE Atom, the more we are all convinced that these are incredibly easy speakers to live with.

Finally, the Atoms are very easy to set up. Thanks to very wide dispersion, they pass the “just throw them anywhere in the room and go” test with ease. And they do it on budget speaker stands. Those wanting every last bit of performance these speakers have to offer, will get a bigger stereo image and a bit more low frequency extension by putting them on more massive stands and spending about 30 minutes fine tuning speaker placement. But you don’t have to go through it to fall in love with these speakers.

Just as Paradigm set the high-end world on its ear two years ago with their Persona speakers, delivering six figure sound for about $30k a pair, they return to their roots with the Monitor SE Atom. I’ve heard a lot of budget speakers and most of them are rubbish. These little Paradigms are high quality compact speakers. I dare you to find better. This is truly one of the most exciting products I’ve had the pleasure to review. Well done, Paradigm!" - Tone Magazine

Audio Trends has also sold Paradigm Atom's for around 10 years and we agree that they are stylish, smooth dynamic sound, great finishes, good proportions and very fair prices make this Monitor SE range the go to speaker at anywhere near this price point. A pair of Atoms is the perfect place to start your audio journey. Come in and have a look, we're sure you'll agree.
