Paradigm Soundtrack Sound Bar/Subwoofer System - Product of the Week

By February 8, 2013

Sound bars are now well-entrenched as an easy way to get better sound for TV viewing without a lot of speakers. At CES 2013, I had a chance to hear several new sound bar products, and one that is now available, and worth consideration, is the Paradigm Soundtrack.

The Soundtrack pairs a two-channel sound bar with a wireless-enabled subwoofer. The sound bar section is approximately 37-inches wide, which visually matches well with TV screen sizes from 32 to 47 inches, and houses one 4 1/2-inch midrange driver, one 1-inch tweeter, and a 4-inch passive radiator for each channel. The power output of the sound bar section is rated at 25 watts-per-channel (RMS).

The companion wireless subwoofer features a bass reflex design with an 8-inch driver combined with two additional ports for extended low frequency response. The frequency response for the entire system, is approximately 40Hz to 20kHZ. The subwoofer can be placed horizontally or vertically, and comes with its own detachable stand. The subwoofer power output is rated at 100 watts (RMS).

The wireless transmission range between the sound bar section and the subwoofer is approximately 50 feet. However, if you prefer, you also have the option of connecting the subwoofer to the sound bar using an audio cable.

For connectivity, the Soundtrack provides digital optical and analog audio inputs (both RCA and 3.5mm types). You can even access audio from a connected Apple TV, or AirPort Express, as well as from wireless Bluetooth devices via Paradigm's optional BD1 Bluetooth receiver dongle.

Finally, to control it all, the Soundtrack comes with an easy-to-use remote control, or, if your TV or Cable/Satellite Satellite remote has learning capability, you can use that option as well.

If you are looking for a sound bar solution to complement your TV viewing experience, check out the Paradigm Soundtrack ($799) as a possible choice. For more details, refer the Official Paradigm Soundtrack Product Page.
