Paradigm Launches Premium Wireless Series with DTS Play-Fi


Paradigm Wireless
Paradigm Electronics has announced the first three models of its Premium Wireless Series, namely the: PW 800 premium wireless speaker, PW 600 compact premium wireless speaker and PW AMP premium wireless amplifier. The new Paradigm Premium Wireless Series products provide listeners with the flexibility to stream their high-resolution music wirelessly (up to 24-bit/192kHz) over an existing Wi-Fi network to any number of connected speakers using DTS Play-Fi technology.

Unlike many wireless platforms, DTS Play-Fi is an open platform, meaning listeners are able to mix and match any DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio products from a selection of top audio brands. In addition, Paradigm’s Premium Wireless Series products do not limit the listener with the need for proprietary hardware. The Paradigm PW AMP, with its powerful Anthem class-D amplification can be used to stream high-resolution audio to existing traditional loudspeakers or in-wall/in-ceiling speakers, regardless of brand affiliation. As well, person music libraries and online music streaming services like Tidal, Spotify, Rdio, Songza, Pandora are all made accessible. Streaming is possibly via virtually any device – Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or PC.

The Premium Wireless Series product performance has been enhanced by Paradigm’s exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC) technology – included with ALL Paradigm Premium Wireless Series products. ARC technology uses advanced DSP algorithms to quickly and easily optimize speaker performance in any room. In just a few easy steps, the included microphone measures sound output, compares it to scientifically optimal response curves, and instantly adjusts your speaker’s output for perfect sound in that room. The listener will hear the improvement Anthem Room Correction can make in any room. No other wireless streaming product has ARC.

Paradigm’s Premium Wireless Series products can be easily incorporated into existing control systems with the help of Fusion Research’s Ovation Play-Fi server. Ovation is the first music server to feature DTS Play-Fi technology. It allows clients to stream multiple discrete sources of music directly to any Play-Fi enabled speaker or amplifier. Easily controlled by major automation systems, with two-way drivers for Control4, RTI, URC and Crestron, this piece creates the bridge to allow integrators to use Play-Fi systems in custom installations.
