Paradigm Electronics Inc., international leader in speaker design and manufacturing, today announced that it has been named a CES 2017 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree for the Persona™ 9H. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Persona is a showcase of vanguard materials and Paradigm's most advanced audio technologies, all entirely Crafted in Canada. Engineered to "take on the persona" of the audio performance, each speaker virtually disappears behind an unprecedented level of realism and transparency.
"We are extremely proud that Persona 9H has been recognized in this way," said Paul Grove, SVP Global Sales and Marketing for Paradigm. "Persona is truly a halo product line for Paradigm and celebrates all that we've achieved over the past 34 years."
Persona 9H features hybrid technology with Truextent® pure beryllium tweeter and midrange drivers. Two powerful onboard amplifiers deliver 1400W RMS of clean, continuous power even at lifelike performance levels. Adaptive PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) optimizes amplifier efficiency and smooths supply variations, for instantaneous reactions and reference-quality performance with bulletproof reliability. The 9H also contains an inverse differential midrange drive unit and advanced dual voice coil systems.
The powered woofer section of the Persona 9H Hybrid includes exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC) Technology. ARC measures low-frequency sound output in the room and compares it to optimal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. The advanced algorithms of ARC then effectively remove these anomalies, leaving only the ideal standard: realistically blended, natural-sounding bass performance, in any listening space.
The complete Persona Series is comprised of seven models: Persona 9H Flagship, Persona 7F, Persona 5F, Persona 3F, Persona B, Persona C and Persona SUB. The entire Persona Series is available in four premium automotive finishes: Vanta High Gloss Black, Harmony High Gloss White, Aria Metallic Blue, and Sonic Metallic Silver.
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA™), the producer of CES 2017, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Products chosen as CES Best of Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market. Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.
