Learn more about Paragon's exclusive World of McIntosh Experience Center.
Paragon opened the Midwest's first McIntosh Experience Center in November 2012. In October 2015, after major renovation, the space re-opened as the first North American World of McIntosh Experience Center. The WOM Experience Center is a 1,000 square-foot area, that includes three brand-specific listening rooms, providing customers the opportunity to experience premiere audio systems in a living room setting. WOM brands include: Bassocontinuo, McIntosh, Sonus faber, Audio Research, and Sumiko.
Reference Systems are that to which all others are compared. Created out of a dream and brought to reality with imagination and experienced engineering, the McIntosh Reference music system delivers the closest thing to a live performance in your own home.
Paragon’s McIntosh Reference System starts with the C1100 Reference Tube Preamplifier & Power Controller, D1100 2-Channel Digital Preamplifier, and the MT10 Reference Turntable. The system is anchored by a pair of massive MC2KW multi-chassis Monoblock Power Amplifiers, and flanked by two pure pillars of sound – the redesigned XR2.1K Loudspeakers. Stop by Paragon Sight & Sound today for a demo of this epic system!
Our Automated Paragon Smart Conference Room is designed to showcase the capabilities of our Paragon Smart department, and it features a variety of products and applications. Highlights include: Savant Control Products & Control App, Lutron Lighting Dimmers & Lutron Motorized Window Blinds, and a Leon Speakers Soundbar with a custom MediaDecor Art TV Frame. This room also serves as a consultation space for working with clients, architects, interior designers and builders. In this space, we lay-out your plans and materials, crafting an intuitive smart home system made for the way you live.
During the last decade, we’ve seen (and heard) the evolution and refinement of digital music, a renewed interest in personal listening, and a rejuvenation of the vinyl listening experience. Today, you have more choices than ever, both in the music you listen to and the audio equipment you listen with. Paragon’s goal for the Modern Music Center is to show you the latest technology products and help you find high performance gear at budget-friendly prices.
To that end, the Modern Music Center focuses on accessibility and interactive product experiences. By bringing together many of today’s popular music formats into one convenient demo space, our customers can get hands-on with a wide range of components. We know this unique new space will bring more fun and engagement to your shopping experience.

Early music streaming systems were often unreliable, difficult to use, and required a computer. Today’s streaming systems are more intuitive, easier to navigate, and deliver much higher performance.
Our digital music streaming bar allows you to select and playback your favorite music from either a network storage drive or a content provider, such as Tidal, Pandora, or Spotify. A streamer is often used as part of a standalone audio system, but can also be incorporated into a multi-room system. Our selection of streamers provide great sound, user-friendly interfaces, and many are “Roon ready.”
Interface software functions like a librarian, and allows you to easily find music on any device or content provider connected to the network. Our favorite software which we use exclusively in our showroom is Roon, which makes it very easy to select music from your storage drive, stream music, view album art, research musicians, and much more.
Our Streaming Bar currently features products by Naim, McIntosh, Lumen, Mytek, Roon, and Sonos.
Headphones have been steadfast personal companions to most of us for years. Providing a soundtrack to our lives, it’s hard to think of being without them. At our headphone bar, you’ll hear for yourself the performance differences between a variety of open ear and closed ear headphones. Experiment with adding a headphone amplifier for even better sound.
With choices ranging from (to name a few) wired, wireless, and noise-cancelling headphones, the best way to your perfect match is to audition a wide-selection of headphones. While sound quality is paramount (and subjective), there is also the issue of fit and comfort. We invite you to come in, relax, and audition.
Our headphone bar is also equipped with a selection of headphone amplifiers available to demo in conjunction with a pair of quality cans. Headphone amps are compact, high-performance components designed to extract the very best sound quality from your headphones. These amps often have an incorporated DAC, and some even have music streaming options.
Our Headphone Bar currently features products by Focal, Grado, Sennheiser, McIntosh, Pro-Ject, and Pryma.
As vinyl recordings have grown more and more popular, the available options for turntables and accessories such as phono preamps have likewise experienced a surge.
Quality decks now offer more convenience, flexibility, and sonic performance than ever before. With an entire wall devoted to turntables, we’ll help you match the perfect turntable to your system.
Paragon's Modern Music Center features an entire wall dedicated to turntables, which are all available to audition. Our turntable selection offers a variety of features, and a wide price range, so you’re sure to find a table that's perfect for you. Browse our ever-changing selection of LPs and be sure to check out our turntable accessories for must-haves such as record cleaners, platter mats, phono cartridges, and more.
Our Turntable Bar currently features products by Clearaudio, Pro-Ject, MoFi Electronics, and McIntosh.
