New Par­a­digm Prod­ucts For 2015


Of course my visit of Par­a­digm wouldn’t Of course my visit of Par­a­digm wouldn’t be com­plete if I didn’t ask - what does Par­a­digm have up its sleeve for 2015? And I’m glad I in­quired be­cause lots of new prod­ucts are in the pipe­line for this year. In Jan­uary, at the CES in Las Ve­gas, Par­a­digm an­nounced brand new Wire­less Se­ries prod­ucts that will be join­ing the com­pany’s Shift Col­lec­tion. The com­plete de­tails haven’t been re­leased yet, but here’s what we know so far. This new se­ries will of­fer two pow­ered wire­less speak­ers - the smaller model is called the Par­a­digm PF 600 ($599 US), while its big­ger brother is called the Par­a­digm PF 800 ($799 US). There will also be a pow­ered (100 watts x 2) Par­a­digm PF Amp ($499 US), for lis­ten­ers you wish to connect their own speak­ers. The Wire­less Se­ries will be equipped with DTS Play-Fi tech­nol­ogy, which uti­lizes your ex­ist­ing wifi net­work and al­lows you to stream mu­sic from your An­droid, iOS, Kin­dle Fire, or Win­dows PC de­vice to any PlayFi speaker. DTS Play-Fi also al­lows you to stream in­ter­net ra­dio and mu­sic from var­i­ous on­line mu­sic ser­vices (such as Deezer, Sir­iusXM and Songza) as well as your home net­work. In ad­di­tion to ac­cess­ing all th­ese mu­sic sources, you’ll be able to cre­ate a multi-room sound sys­tem, when us­ing mul­ti­ple speak­ers, al­low­ing you to sync the mu­sic that’s play­ing in all the rooms, or lis­ten to a dif­fer­ent song on each speaker. All three prod­ucts are ex­pected to ship this spring (check out the Wire­less Se­ries fam­ily photo at the bot­tom of this page).

In ad­di­tion to this new se­ries, Par­a­digm will also give its in­cred­i­ble-sound­ing Mil­lenia (com­pact speaker) prod­uct range a facelift in 2015. I learned a lit­tle more dur­ing my tour of Par­a­digm but had to prom­ise not to dis­close ev­ery­thing in this ar­ti­cle. Stay tuned to the CANADA HiFi web­site to learn more about th­ese new and up­com­ing prod­ucts from Par­a­digm.

I hope you en­joyed the in­sight into the mak­ing of the Par­a­digm Pres­tige Se­ries as much as I en­joyed the fac­tory tour. Please check out www.par­a­ to learn more de­tails about the tech­nolo­gies found in this new speaker se­ries. One thing is for cer­tain - we can’t wait to get our hands on th­ese speak­ers so that we can put them through our se­ries of lis­ten­ing tests.
