Paradigm | Cinema 100 CT

A home theatre system to meet your needs: budget, style and space!

System includes:
5 x Cinema 100 Satellite Speaker
1 x Cinema Sub

When size and sound matter 

While it’s true, there are tiny satellite speakers aided by small subwoofers that can be “hidden” in many living spaces, when it comes to great audiophile sound these systems had never delivered … until Cinema. For years now, our award-winning Cinema speakers have been delivering a seamless music and home theater soundstage that brings movies to life and makes music sound “live.” Rumour has it that with this new generation of Cinema speakers, sound may be even better than the movie.

Superior S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes with powerful neodymium magnets and ferro-fluid cooling for increased power handling! Highs are transparent with a superb sense of air and exceptional spaciousness.

Wire Mesh Tweeter Guard and WaveGuide™ technology ensure a smooth, wide panorama of audiophile-quality sound.

Reference quality crossovers in an affordable audiophile … almost unheard of! Driver integration is virtually seamless across the full range of frequencies.

Push-thru Binding Posts with Easy-Glide™ Channels.

Superior 8˝ High-Excursion Driver made of a durable reinforced polymer composite that in concert with the superior suspension system and motor/magnet structure allow the cone to travel farther while maintaining effective control.

Paradigm Cinema 100 CT

"The Paradigm Cinema 100 CT is an outstanding speaker system. It boasts luxurious build quality and performance that’s a cut above your average compact package. That’s largely thanks to the subwoofer, which harnesses Paradigm’s considerable expertise in that particular field with tight, agile and muscular bass, but the sats play their part with a beautifully open and composed performance. Most impressive is how it makes you believe you’re listening to much bigger speakers, offering presence and authority beyond the norm – the mark of a truly triumphant compact system." Danny Phillips // Trusted Reviews // Read the full review here
"Voices were clean and uncoloured, even when Hollywood’s finest are shouting, and the sheer size of the sound belies the size of the boxes. This really is a system for someone who craves a big sound but wants to avoid room-dominating speakers... Paradigm’s 100CT speakers, and the subwoofer that goes with them, form a bit of a wonder package." Adam Rayner // Home Cinema Choice // Read the full review here
"...the Paradigm Cinema 100 CT is extremely forgiving of sources and source material, which means it doesn't need the highest level of separates to perform at its best. All of these factors make the Cinema CT a well-balanced 5.1 system for any occasion." Alex Lezcano // Home Theater Review // Read the full review here
"The Cinema 100 CT will work happily with any decent AV receiver, it will make the most of the power on offer, it will move the room when asked and will do it all in a seamless blend between all of the speakers. Crucially, it will feel bigger and more exciting with movies, whilst sounding more complete with music than it peers, whose form may be bound by their function."
