Soundtrack
Paradigm

Soundtrack

Powered Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer System

Small rooms. Big rooms. Bedrooms. Boardrooms. Think thin. Powered sound bar and subwoofer. Wireless slim sub offers flexible placement options: tuck it into a corner, a cabinet or under a couch. 2.1 channels of sound for a room-filling sound experience. Our Soundtrack system is for you if you think ordinary is overrated and you're into extraordinary.

Special Soundtrack System Features and Why They're Important - 2.1 channels of sound. A room-filling sound experience. The two full-range driver complements in the sound bar are physically separated into two channels. Three drivers make up the right channel of the sound bar with three more on the left. This separation ensures that sound from both channels travels widely and deeply throughout the room. Stereo imaging is immaculate. Superb reproduction of the original live event or original recording session. If in a live performance cellos were to the left, violas spread across the front, drums in the back, then that?s where you?ll hear them. Sound will follow the live performers as they travel across the stage. In a movie, as special effects fly in, you?ll find yourself ducking your head. Paradigm?s DSP signal processing design uses sophisticated mathematical algorithms to shape frequency response so that even when the system is playing at loud levels, sound is clear, musical and authentic.

About the Drivers

Bass/Midrange - 2 x 4-1/2" bass/midrange woofers: Mineral-filled polypropylene. This material delivers a superb low-mass, high-stiffness ratio. The benefits of this? Excellent reproduction in the higher midrange and fast transient response (explosions, etc.). The material is also an effective damper for distortion as the woofers move back and forth.

2 x 4" passive radiators: Constructed of a mineral-filled polypropylene, the dual radiators extend the speaker?s range in the lower bass frequencies.

2 x 1" high-frequency ferro-fluid cooled dome tweeters: Pure-aluminum dome tweeters are a rarity at this price. Fluid cooling the voice coil improves power handling which improves the accuracy, purity and range of the high-frequencies.

Compact Low-Profile Sub with Dual Ports - 8" laminated polypropylene cone driver with a 1-1/2" high-temperature aluminum-wire voice coil. Dual ports ensure even, articulate, well-timed bass performance. Oversized ports and driver are arranged in a perpendicular array to achieve the low-profile design. Wired option for subwoofer is also available, cable not included. If desired, the sub will fit into a standard A/V cabinet.

Proprietary Class-D Amplification - The Class-D amplification delivers 2 x 25 watts of RMS power and 2 x 50 watts peak power from the sound bar. The amplified sub delivers 100 watts of RMS power and 250 watts peak power.

Why would you want it?

Award-winning Paradigm technology and sound quality.

Fast and easy setup.

No bulky additional components needed.

Wireless low-profile sub offers placement flexibility.

Direct hook-up to a TV, cable box, Blu-Ray player, gaming console and other TV accessories.

Operates via remote, onboard interface and can also learn your cable or satellite TV's remote.

rDAC kw
Arcam

rDAC kw

The rDAC is available in two versions, the straight rDAC for use with local, directly connected sources and the rDAC-kw which adds wireless functionality using KLEER technology. Both rDAC variants offer supreme audio quality for the most demanding music lover. Housed in a slender, precision-cast case the rDac offers an ideal upgrade for conventional sources and network audio products alike.

If you store your music on a PC or Mac then the rWave USB dongle or rWand iPod/iPad dongle are the perfect way to stream your music direct to the rDAC-kw and on to your HiFi. No wires, no fuss.

In recent years computer and streaming audio has added to the popularity of the outboard DAC. In response Arcam have underlined their position at the forefront of this technology with the new rDAC.

Simple to look at, the rDAC's sleek cast aluminum casework hides the very latest digital conversion using, at its core, the outstanding 8741 IC from Wolfson Microelectronics. Offering coaxial, optical or USB digital inputs the rDAC renders music with stunning accuracy and delivers a performance of thrilling musicality.

The dCS technology allows a precision clock to drastically reduce the level of jitter from USB music sources and delivers a massive improvement in sound quality over the standard USB adaptive system. The design of precision clock circuits and general digital and analogue audio engineering are some of Arcam's key strengths. The results from the highly affordable rDac are stunning regardless of the digital audio source.

AIR-DAC
Arcam

AIR-DAC

The airDAC is the latest addition to the rSeries and allows you to network any audio system to an Apple Airplay enabled music source. The airDAC is the only audiophile quality Airplay enabled device in the market and also features a secondary digital audio input. It has a SPDIF output that can be connected to a reference quality DAC like the Arcam FMJ D33.

The Arcam rSeries products are all about getting the best sound from any digital device. These products can be used with any audio system and are a brilliant way to bringing 21st century tech into your home.

The airDAC benefits from Arcam's more than twenty years of digital audio expertise and use the finest quality parts in a layout that is optimised for low noise and distortion. A dejittering design that Arcam have used in many of the reference class FMJ products is applied to all inputs. The four-layer PCB allows our designers to maximise the quality of the ground plane in order to further reduce interference between components. The use of multiple low noise separately regulated power supplies ensures that we get the cleanest signal to the audiophile quality output stage.

The airDAC's WiFi is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n but it also hosts a wired Ethernet (RJ45) connector for the most reliable results from your network. It comes in an elegant cast aluminium enclosure that reduces microphony effects and has a non-slip rubber base.

UPnP offers the possibility of playing lossless files up to 24bit / 96kHz in resolution (currently AirPlay is restricted to playing Apple Lossless files up to 16bit / 48kHz). These can be streamed via UPnP to the airDAC from your computer, NAS drive or Music Server.

In addition you can use AirPlay with iDevices running iOS7, to send music to your Hi-Fi system from Internet radio services like vTuner and TuneIn Radio, as well as music streaming services like Spotify and Qobuz.

The airDAC is one of the simplest ways to enjoy your favourite music from your UPnP device, iPhone/iPad or computer running iTunes and brings Arcam quality sound to a whole new generation of music lovers.
