Pictured on this page is close-up look at one of the speaker connection sets of the Millenia 20 Trio. The push design really makes connecting speaker wire very easy. You don't have to hassle getting large fingers caught in a tight screwing space - just push the speaker connection covering down, insert the speaker wire, and then release. If all speakers and home theater receivers had this type of connection system, it would save a lot of connection and setup time.

Final Take

I found that the Paradigm Millenia 20 Trio LCR Speaker System delivered clear sound across a wide range of frequencies and provided well-balanced left, center, right sound image.

The Millenia 20 Trio is a single housing, about 41-inches long, that includes the Left, Center, and Right channel speakers. However, despite this design, the Millenia 20 Trio supplied a good Left/Center/Right image. The sounds from the left and right channels projected to the sides beyond the physical length of the speaker. Also, the center channel portion delivered a very good vocal and dialog presence from both music and movie source material.

I listened to the Millenia 20 Trio in three different types of setups:

1. As a single, standalone (L,C,R) speaker system.

2. As a standalone speaker system, combined with a separate subwoofer ([link url="http://hometheater.about.com/od/loudspeakerreviews/gr/klpschsub10shr.htm">Klipsch Synergy Sub10).

3. Same as setup #2, but adding two left and right surround speakers (Klipsch Synergy B3).

The different types of setups yielded different results with regards to surround imaging and bass depth. However, as far as sound quality goes, this speaker system worked well alone, or as part of larger system. I must be noted that the Millenia 20 Trio, when used alone, will not provide the more enveloping surround sound environment as when using additional surround sound speakers. However, in a space-saving setup, this system delivers a wide soundstage with good detail. The Millenia 20 Trio can easily be used in a small-to-medium size room and is a great design and size match for use with a 42-inch Plasma or LCD flat panel television.

I really enjoyed using this system and found that it performed better that I expected. I give the Paradigm Millenia 20 Trio LCR Speaker 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
