Our Millenia CT 2 is a high-performance design inspired by the award-winning Paradigm Reference MilleniaOne speakers, winners of Sound & Vision's Product of the Year. It's a fully powered audio/multimedia system, no receiver required!
Millenia CT 2 is a high-performance speaker system that includes a compact subwoofer. Owing to its built-in Ultra-Class-D amplifier it doesn’t require a receiver or other A/V equipment for power! Don’t be fooled! Despite its plug’n play appeal, it’s loaded with cutting-edge features. Bluetooth with aptX coding, a 2-channel Music Mode, a multichannel Movie Mode, Dolby Digital encoding and Paradigm Virtual Surround processing are all part of the package. The stylish remote even offers comprehensive IR learning. Main functions can also be accessed via the control box.
There's a raft of Paradigm technology at work—the kind of technology not found in any other compact high-performance speaker system in this price range. And versatility! For those of you who may be wondering, the initials 'CT' stand for Compact Theater! Paradigm excels at producing giant sound in a compact format.
"Millenia CT wowed us big time ... its sound quality puts it in a class of its own ... the best self-powered, compact speaker system we’ve heard ... truly does deliver upper echelon sound, and for that reason alone easily earns an Editor’s Choice recommendation."
— Oliver Amnuayphol, Digital Trends on the first Millenia CT system

We've made it super easy to start enjoying award-winning sound with the Millenia CT 2 and everything is included in one box—two premium satellite speakers with stands, a powerful ultra-slim subwoofer, all the cables needed for a simple hookup, and a control box that hooks directly to AppleTV, AirPort Express, or other streaming devices.
In systems without dedicated surround/rear speakers much of the impact and magic of surround sound is lost, since there are no physical speaker channels to deliver it. This precious information, carefully mixed by recording engineers in the studio, sits neglected in the front left and right speaker channels. Paradigm Virtual Surround processing, developed by our engineers, ensures none of that impact and magic is lost.
Humans have the ability to hear sound in three dimensions. Through sophisticated mathematical algorithms that capitalize on this ability, Paradigm Virtual Surround gathers all the neglected sonic information in a central sweet spot, then reflows it into the front left and right channels, sending it out into the room in a way that creates the auditory illusion of swirling surround sound — in other words, a completely enveloping audio experience. An auditory 'illusion' perhaps, but to our ears, this experience is very very real, lifting the music and movie experience to a realm that is immersive, engaging and magical.
