"The Paradigm Prestige 15B compact small speaker is a serious audiophile speaker designed for small rooms and listening in the near and midfield. Within 10 feet of the listening position, these speakers are extremely articulate with excellent stereo imaging and depth. Many of my reference hi-res tracks were impressively showcased through the Prestige 15B pair; many tracks sounded as good as through some $8,000 speakers I have tested... I can’t think of one negative about these speakers. One big Stellar Sound Award for a pair of impressive, small speakers."
—John Gatski, Everything Audio Network
"If you choose the Prestige 15Bs to be the cornerstones of a two-channel system, you’ll be getting a pair of speakers that will minimize their footprints while maximizing their sonic presence in all but the largest rooms. Your choice could also serve as the heart of a home-theater system that would be the state of the art in its category. The Prestige 15B is the complete package: aesthetically sophisticated, materially advanced, technologically progressive, and sonically and musically superior."
