Paradigm is pleased to announce that the Soundtrack 2, a wireless subwoofer system and 6-driver soundbar is now available. This is a low-profile Paradigm-quality sound that offers to match all flat panels. It has bluetooth with aptX streaming technology and includes 2-channel Music Mode as well as multichannel Movie modes with Dolby Digital and Paradigm Virtual Surround. A great-sounding substitute for existing low-profile soundbars with sonic excellence based on Paradigm’s 30 years of award-winning sound innovation. Fully powered by way of the built-in amplifier, Paradigm Soundtrack 2 needs no other A/V components for power.
The lack of existing high-fidelity options was one of the reasons Paradigm decided to tackle the powered soundbar market. The physical cone separation and deep, distinct bass from the sub makes it the ideal solution for those who don’t have a lot of room space or are craving a minimalist aesthetic. The Paradigm Soundtrack 2 has 2 x 25 watts RMS Sustained; 2 x 50 watts Peak Power. The sub offers 240 watts Peak Power. The onboard interface manages the Power, Volume and Syncing of the subwoofer with the Paradigm soundbar. The system can learn source select, power on/off, volume up/down and mute from the TV’s remote so that both the Paradigm Soundtrack 2 and the TV can be controlled with just one remote. Discrete HEX codes are also available if needed.
The Paradigm soundbar features two bass/midrange drivers, two high-frequency drivers and two passive radiators. 4-1/2˝ bass midrange drivers and 4˝ passive radiators are a mineral filled polypropylene which delivers a low-mass, high-stiffness cone. High-frequency drivers feature 1˝ satin-anodized aluminum dome tweeters for superior high-frequency performance, which is a rarity at this price point. Passive radiators boost extended lower frequencies and driver complements are physically separated inside the cabinet providing sonic clarity and distinct channel separation. Snap-in feet can be put on the Paradigm soundbar to place it on a flat surface.
The Paradigm soundbar’s rear panel provides either digital optical and analog stereo inputs for hook-up of Blu-ray/DVD/CD players, satellite receivers, gaming consoles or other external sources. Analog outputs are also included for wired subwoofer connection. Connections can be made via the Paradigm soundbar or the TV, increasing the amount of inputs as well as improving the user experience. Users can choose between a wireless and a wired sub. The dual-ported subwoofer has an 8˝ laminated composite cone driver with a 1-1/2˝ high-temperature aluminum-wire voice coil. Oversized ports and driver are displayed in a perpendicular pattern to achieve the low-profile design with the dual ports providing deep, even bass response. The Digital Signal Processing signal-processing engine uses sophisticated mathematical algorithms to frame frequency response so that even at loud levels, bass is accurate and musical. The DSP platform is also behind the mathematical algorithms needed for Paradigm Virtual Surround sound processing. This surround sound is so realistic that it makes this product stand out in the category. If desired, the Paradigm sub can fit into a standard A/V cabinet.
Paradigm’s Soundtrack 2 is a winner when it comes to an all-in-one value-oriented powered audio solutions. With today’s living spaces being smaller, its high level of performance mixed with a non-technical setup is perfect in a placement-friendly format. The Paradigm Soundtrack 2 experience is made large due to the Music and Movie modes with the Paradigm Virtual Surround, Bluetooth with aptX streaming and Dolby Digital decoding. Customers are going to experience a music and movie experience that’s very higher caliber, whether the Paradigm system is used as their primary system or a secondary system in a bedroom, dorm, den, etc. The built-in Paradigm amplifier make it virtually a plug’n play system.
