You Don't Need to Spend A Lot to Achieve Great Sound- Groundbreaking Products from Magnepan and Paradigm Prove Performance Can be Had for Less

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get excellent performance and value from your music playback system. We were recently presented with two perfect examples of this reality – by two different manufactures – in two completely different product categories.
Although it is uncertain what technical changes were made from its predecessor, the difference in the audible performance of the .7i is undeniable. It offers a smoother sonic presentation, better integration between the midrange and bass and a far more even tonal balance. Don’t let their relatively diminutive size fool you – the sound stage offered up by these flat-panel speakers is huge, with a well-defined sweet spot to match.
Stop into Audio Den for a demonstration – it’s the only way to grasp just how good these speakers sound. As the only authorized Magnepan dealer on Long Island, we have the .7i, 1.7i and 3.7i speakers on display. In short, we have the perfect Magnepan speaker for you, no matter the size of your listening room.
At the other end of the Value Audio Product spectrum resides the Paradigm PW AMP – Premium Wireless 2-Channel Amplifier. At a retail price of $499, this little black box absolutely crushes many of the traditional power amplifiers on the market – and it streams!
At its core, the Paradigm PW AMP boasts a robust Anthem Class-D Amplifier – that delivers 200 Watts Dynamic Peak (100 Watts RMS @4 ohms). Unlike proprietary streaming devices like Sonos and Heos, the DTS Play-Fi streaming technology in the PW AMP supports a host of high-quality file formats and delivers better-than-CD-quality sound (high-resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz) – all over your home WIFI network.
Best of all, the Paradigm’s Premium Wireless Series products all feature exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC™) Technology. ARC uses an exclusive Calibration Microphone and advanced DSP algorithms to quickly and easily optimize speaker performance in any space. In just a few easy steps the microphone measures sound output, compares it to scientifically optimal response curves, and instantly tunes your wireless speaker’s output for perfect sound.
In real world terms – this means with ARC you can optimize the audio performance in every room of your house – so the music always sounds great, everywhere. In your kitchen – with all of its hard, reflective surfaces; your Great Room’s vaulted ceilings and large windows; and your Finished Basement with its low ceilings and muted audio environment. You can walk from room to room in your home and the music will sound the same throughout – no more strange delays and differences in the audio performance. When we first heard the PW AMP in our store, we simply could not believe that all of that sound was coming from such a tiny box. You simply have to hear it to believe it. With its easy-to-use app and quick ARC set-up, you will be steaming hi-res music in no time. Stop by Audio Den or give us a call at (631) 585-5600 to arrange for a demonstration.
