Paradigm Floorstanding Speaker Prestige 75F

With its tall-and-narrow rectangular cabinet, front-mounted drivers, rear-firing port, and cloth grille, Paradigm’s Prestige 75F is the quintessential tower loudspeaker. Fans of new driver types, exotic cabinet designs, the rarest of rare-earth metals, and de rigueur built-in powered woofers might be tempted to pass by (especially when the grille is attached), much as I did figuratively when a pair of the towers arrived. Paradigm had shipped them to use with the company’s Premium Wireless streaming amplifier, the PW Amp (Sound & Vision, June, and soundandvision.com). The Prestige 75F wasn’t the focus of that review, so although I began burning in the pair, I basically ignored them until I’d finished evaluating the PW 600 and PW 800, Paradigm’s self-powered multiroom wireless speaker that operates independently of the towers. At the risk of spoiling things, I’ll say up front that when it came time to test the PW Amp, it became exceedingly difficult to pay attention to the ballsy little streaming amplifier. It was soon playing second fiddle to an unanticipated, towering virtuoso.
