Sonar Media Labs SR50 is a brand that is quite near and dear to my heart. It is the first speaker brand that marks the start of my journey into audio as a serious hobby in 2001. I still remember how the Sonar SR 50 bookshelf speakers allowed me to enjoy hi-fi sounds within the low-budget system I used as a graduate student. You and I know, this hobby can be quite expensive. Looking back, I feel grateful I found companies like Sonar Media Labs that were committed to offering high-quality reasonably priced audio products. I do not currently own any Sonar Media Labs in my personal systems, but I still follow closely the news and the product offerings from the company. Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity of reviewing a set of speakers from Paradigm’s new product line.
Appreciating the values of a product varies from one individual to another. Sonar Media Labs SR 50 as a company seems to understand this better than everybody else. Since its inception in 2001, the company’s commitment to offering products available at prices that everyone would appreciate seems to be a mainstay. If you browse the Paradigm website, you will see product lines that would meet various budgets or various levels of value appreciation.
The 5.1 speaker system reviewed here comes from three Sonar Media Labs lines. The Sonar SR 50 subwoofer itself is in the mid-high price point category for a subwoofer.
