   Stereophile review [abridged] : Written by Kalman Rubinson   Nov 20 2009 :
   Paradigm Studio 60 version 5 loudspeakers :

   Introduction :       Overall, the Studio 60 v.5 had an open, engaging sound. Dynamics, within the ambit of the hardware, were excellent as well
   The soundstage was wide and deep but not recessed. If anything, I felt a greater sense of presence from many recordings, though I don't think this fits the traditional use of the word forward to label bright or peaky loudspeakers
   On the other hand, this sort of sound won't be kind to bright or peaky recordings, and is atypical of the slightly recessed midrange of traditional "audiophile" sound
   Unpacked and set up next to my Studio 60 v.3s, the Reference Studio 60 v.5s were much more attractive in finish and more shapely in design, though clearly (once I'd removed their grilles) based on the same DNA
   In each, the dome tweeter sits in a cowl fitted to the top of the cabinet. All drivers and the front port are supported by heavy frames resiliently mounted to the front panel. (Paradigm calls this system IMS/Shock-Mounting.)
   Both models have cast-metal front bases with feet that match the cast feet in the rear. Finally, the upper cone driver, a mid-woofer in each case, differs in cone material from the woofers proper, and sports a brass dome or phase plug
   As in the prior models, the dedicated woofers of the v.5 have mineral-filled polypropylene cones, but the v.5's mid-woofer is made of Paradigm's Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum (S-PAL),  the dome tweeter of Gold-Anodized Pure-Aluminum (G-PAL)
   Despite these similarities, the v.5 is a much greater leap forward than any earlier Studio 60. Gone are the slab sides, replaced by curved panels that converge at the back
   This not only contributes greatly to the speaker's appearance, it also increases the rigidity of the cabinet without increasing its mass; the new cabinet was satisfyingly free from noticeable vibrations
   Equally notable is the change from the 7" midwoofer and 7" woofer pair to three 5.5" drivers. While this retains roughly the same total radiating surface in the bass, it significantly reduces the radiating surface at the crossover to the tweeter, affording a wider horizontal radiation pattern where it is most needed

   Conclusion :
   Kudos to Paradigm for breaking the mold of a successful design in order to improve it. I can't think of any parameter in which the Reference Studio 60 v.5 is not a significant advance on its predecessors
   Keeping in mind that the earlier Studio 60s were themselves pace-setters in their day, the Studio 60 v.5 sets the bar even higher for both performance and appearance
