A Closer Look
The Premier 600C is an elegantly proportioned centre channel speaker which cunningly hides the true power, finesse and scale of its sound reproduction. It is an impressive 6-driver 3-way passive radiator bass reflex design which incorporates a 25mm (1”) X-PAL dome Tweeter with perforated phase-aligning lens combined with a 102mm (4”) black anodized X-Pal carbon-infused polypropylene Midrange, also sporting the unique perforated phase-aligning lens. The lineup is completed by a pair of 165mm (6½”) ART surround carbon-infused polypropylene high performance Bass Drivers and a pair of 165mm (6½”) ART surround carbon-infused polypropylene Passive Radiators. With low frequency extension down to 40Hz the 600C can fill a big room with powerful clear vocal energy to complement the 800F or 700F floorstanders in a quality home theatre system.
Performance & Value: To produce a loudspeaker that meets their standards for performance and value, Paradigm took complete control of the manufacturing process, an unprecedented move at this price point. In their state-of-the-art North American facility, they have produced a loudspeaker that defies convention; a homegrown loudspeaker that benefits from innovations found throughout the Paradigm family of loudspeakers.
Patented Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter & Midrange Lens Technology: Distinctive perforated lens in front of the tweeter and midrange drivers increase and smooth output without coloring the sound, while also protecting the drivers from external damage (loud parties excepted).
Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surrounds: The Premier range features Paradigm’s patented Active Ridge Technology (ART) surrounds, made in-house and overmolded directly onto each woofer and midrange cone. This design achieves greater excursion, for a 3dB gain in output and 50% reduction in distortion. Crafted from injection-molded thermoplastic elastomer, ART surrounds are more durable and more reliable, ensuring a lifetime of superior sound.
Crafted in Canada: Premier Series speakers are designed, engineered, and made in Paradigm’s state-of-the-art 225,000 ft2 Canadian facility. They chose heavy duty, non-resonant 19mm (3/4") MDF, with optimally placed interior bracing, and reinforced front baffles to ensure an audio performance beyond any other in this price range. Smooth front baffles, enhanced with a 25mm (1") MDF, reduce diffraction and improve sound radiation characteristics. You can feel the Premier build quality that comes from true handcrafted manufacturing. Beautiful, furniture-grade finishes complete this new standard of performance and value.
Paradigm has also employed tapered-angle cabinet designs in this range that not only reduces back-wave reflections within the cabinet but also improves bass intensity and ensures more accurately dispersed audio reproduction whilst adding to the elegance of the enclosure profile.
Partnered With Canada’s National Research Council (NRC): Paradigm is partnered with Canada’s world-renowned NRC in ongoing research to reveal the true nature of sound and human hearing. Findings influence design and performance specs, resulting in a uniquely realistic listening experience, backed by sound science and beginning with the Persona Series and now trickling down to the Premier Series.
About Paradigm: Since 1982, innovative design, advanced materials, in-house manufacturing and state-of-the-art engineering have made Paradigm an international leader in speaker design. With more than 400 industry awards for audio excellence and numerous rave reviews from around the world, Paradigm is committed to staying at the leading edge of speaker technology, consistently achieving the ultimate in sound for music and home theatre.
In The News
“There’s a lot to like about the Paradigm 800F floorstanders (the matching model to the 600C). First and foremost, they sound musically authentic, with a large, generous and inviting sound that does everything from classic symphonies to hard rockers full justice. But there’s also ample attention to detail, and plenty of insight, ensuring that the Paradigms are able to get under the skin of the music, and to extract more than just mere notes and rhythms. Add superb composure, and a tonal range broad enough to make those low notes come alive and upper trebles to glisten with truthfulness, and you have a musically talented, wholly entertaining speaker that can stand its ground against rivals costing a lot more.” Deon Schoeman - AudioVideo
