"Paradigm's A2 speakers are a total knockout and… a tremendous value, too. Their limited quirks are easily out-shined by their superior build quality, unique connectivity features and fantastic sound. These speakers exhibit a high level of musical refinement that is an absolute feast for the ear. Though marketed toward aspiring DJs and music producers, these speakers will likely find audience with audiophiles everywhere. If there's a better sounding sound solution under $500 out there, we haven’t heard it yet."
    — Caleb Denison, DigitalTrends.com
The Paradigm Shift Active Atom (A2) is a powered bookshelf/tabletop speaker designed to be used alone, as a left/right audio system or in stereo pairs with devices such as iPods and other music players, desktop computers, home DJ decks, videogame consoles, guitars, keyboards, TVs and so much more. The A2 can be used with any devices that have a 3.5-mm mini-jack or RCA outputs. Wireless streaming is available using Apple AirPlay from iTunes-enabled computers or devices via a convenient rear panel AirPort Express interface (AirPort Express not included).

100 Watts of power per speaker!
The A2 is a bi-amped speaker that offers 100 watts of power per speaker, as two discrete 50-watt amps power the 5-1/2-inch aluminum cone woofer and 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. The A2 has a stellar frequency response for a smaller speaker -- 55Hz on up to 20kHz.

Digital Signal Processing
Sophisticated mathematical algorithms shape frequency response so that you’ll enjoy intense bass and amazingly accurate, clear and musical sound – at every volume level!

Streaming music
The A2 features built-in input jacks for AirPort Express (for use with Apple AirPlay compatible products), Bluetooth and other wireless devices, so you can easily stream your music. Play with one speaker, two speakers or multiple speakers. The A2 is made for the way you play. No matter which way you play you're about to hear just how good audio can get.
