Paradigm Persona B £7,800 REVIEW

February 10, 2021 § Leave a comment

The Persona B does things I’ve never heard a loudspeaker do before, although it can sometimes struggle to do some of the things I enjoy about other designs. It’s akin to owning a Lamborghini – a staggering work of high-end engineering with breakneck acceleration and laser sharp handling that’s not ideal for nipping down the shops for a pint of milk. It can depict every molecule of the soundscape, but can leave you wanting a little less insight and a bit more musicality. It’s an addictive listen nonetheless. Play any track you think you know well and it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. There’s a new vivid ‘air’ around performers as though you’ve pushed right to the front row of the gig. The main challenge is that I sometimes yearn for a touch more warmth and low-end extension to balance the extraordinary midband depth and treble insight. Experimenting with volume and amplification exhibits gains in warmth and bass extension as you add greater power, but only to a point and this is where it becomes clear that the Persona B could be a world beater when allied to a subwoofer, just as it would in a home cinema setup
