Introduction to the Paradigm Soundtrack System

There is no question that soundbars are a "hot item" for home theater enthusiasts. The soundbar category grew a whopping 68% over all of 2012, with a monumental surge in Q4 2012 alone. Unit sales for Q4 versus Q3 were up 158%, even better, the category of soundbars with a companion subwoofer increased 126% in 2012 versus the prior year. This according a new report from Quixel Research. I can't think of any major speaker manufacturer that does not offer at least one soundbar in their line up. They can be pricey or inexpensive  depending on the quality and features. The one thing I see from this trend is this: People want better sound from their flat TVs and the speaker companies are giving them options and choices. I know this is a shocker, but most homes in America do NOT have 5.1 speaker systems. So what does Paradigm, a major award winning Canadian speaker company , offer to this fast growing market segment?
