Crutchfield just started carrying the Paradigm Millenia Series, so although I didn't purchase these speakers from them, I would highly recommend doing so. My experience with Crutchfield has been outstanding. Now, to the speaker itself. The short review: The Millenia One is simply an incredible value, with sound comparable to speakers costing 3-5 times as much. As a former sound designer, I'm hard to please when it comes to the speakers I use. I discovered that when the Millenia Ones are combined to create 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound in a medium to small room, and matched with a high quality powered subwoofer, there's no question they're a great choice for those who want big sound in a smaller room. No other system I listened to came close to satisfying my need for dynamic in-your-face surround sound at this price point. This speaker's design is a marvel, marrying high-end components and a rock solid mid-range crossover with a small footprint suitable for multiple placement options. The mid and high frequencies are balanced and open, resulting in a highly satisfying sound stage, whether in a 2.1 configuration, or in a multi-channel Dolby Atmos surround system. Though you can use a Millenia One for your center channel as well, I chose instead to use a full-range center channel speaker to maximum dialogue reproduction and found the Millenia One's were a perfect complement to my Polk CS-350. Overall, these little wonders have earned by highest recommendation!
Pros: - Can be placed or mounted anywhere, with a small footprint ideal for rooms with limited placement options - Love the look! Especially in white. - Great speaker for creating a well matched multi-channel home theatre surround system in a smaller room - Absolutely stellar mid/high end sound reproduction, comparable to speakers 3-5 times the price. - Remarkable imaging, perfect for Dolby Atmos - Perfect compliment to any of the higher end Paradigm Subs
Cons: None. There's a reason these speakers have been in continuous production for 10 years. Paradigm knows a winner when it has one.
