Paradigm PW Soundbar
After doing some research, picked this up from Amazon. The Paradigm PW seems to be a duplicate of the Martin Logan Cadence. Following is my very un-technical review which I posted on Amazon:
I wanted to simplify my audio visual set-up (Yamaha AVR, 3.1 Definitive Technology speakers and SVS subwoofer). Just too many wires and equipment clutter for my small living room. After spending time researching, I decided on either the Paradigm PW or the Martin Logan Cadence soundbars. The two models seem identical and both companies are owned by the same umbrella group. Both of these are new models which were debuted at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January 2017. I found a few very positive reviews for both models, but there just aren't that many reviews yet available. What influenced me was the reputation for Paradigm, reviews for an older soundbar model, and specific features. What was important to me were 3 HDMI inputs, wireless subwoofer adapter, Apple Airplay as well as DTS Play-Fi technology. Set-up was very easy. Plugged my Verizon set top box, blueray DVD player, and Roku streaming player into the soundbar with HDMI cables, and then another HDMI cable from the soundbar to my Samsung TV. I have the bar laying on a media cabinet in front of my TV. Comparing the soundbar to my previous set-up, I actually like the sound better. The Dolby sound is crisp and engaging. Dialogue is very clear. Special effects (explosions, crashes, rainfall, etc) sound great. It's quite possible I didn't have my previous Yamaha receiver set to optimal settings (lots and lots of setting choices). Music is also very good. I tried the soundbar without a subwoofer, and then with my SVS subwoofer. Definitely recommend using a sub. The nice thing is you can use any brand of subwoofer. I connected the sub to the soundbar with a cable, so haven't yet tried the wireless adapter. I have a lot less clutter and fewer cables, without sacrificing any sound quality. Very happy with my purchase.
