Paradigm Persona series

I'm beginning to poke around and gather opinions and information about a "super speaker" to replace my aging Thiel 2.4s.  I like the idea of bass dsp room correction and I am a bit of a point source type imaging nut (thus the Thiels).  So among other choices I've been looking at the Paradigm Persona series specifically the powered 9H with room correction for the bass.  However I'm skeptical of the "lenses" i.e. pierced metal covers on the midrange and tweeter specifically because of Paradigm's claim that such screens "screen out" "out of phase" musical information.  The technology in the design seems superlative but I just can't get past the claim re out of phase information and the midrange and tweeter covers.  What could possibly be the science behind this claim?  It just seems like its putting a halloween moustache on the mona lisa given the fact that the company is generally a technology driven company.
I have had a few folks bring over their amps to try out my Quattro CT's and so far they have all sounded great.  They also have all been zero feedback designs, which is what RV recommends on his speakers.  Just loving all the great music as much as I can.  It's all good.
I'll appeal to the moderators:
Please don't close the thread. This is exactly what the disrupters want. Please, instead suspend the disrupters.

Agreed, don’t close the thread. 

But don’t delete submissions with factual, albeit uncomfortable, material. 
The Persona 9H demo pair is being offered at a significant discount now.  I'll be going back and auditioning it again after they tweek that setup and run ARC on the low-end.  I wish I could bring my electronics to the store but frankly the Pass power amp is a monstrous thing to move.  The Pass brings some real magic to my existing Thiel 2.4's and I imagine would work quite well with the Personas.  I believe the dealer will continue to use the Anthem STR preamp and poweramp.  I'll report my impressions of the second listening session later in the week.


I am looking forward in reading more about your second listening session.  Happy Listening!
