Paradigm Electronics Inc. is now shipping its 2.1 Millenia CT 2 system.
The system hosts an onboard control box interface and controls are recessed to allow for stacking of the control module and Apple TV without interference. Dedicated Music Mode, Movie Mode, Paradigm Virtual Surround and Dolby Digital are included.
The addition of Dolby Digital to the system improves compatibility with televisions that don’t feature LPCM audio, Paradigm says. Bluetooth and aptX streaming as well as AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) are included, enabling control from Bluetooth sources directly from the system with a high quality of streaming. IR learning is part of the package, the remote in this version is easier to use and discrete HEX codes have been included.
“Same great sound but the new additions make the system more convenient, more current and of course keep it simple to operate,” said Mark Aling, senior director of marketing at Paradigm. "Our proprietary Paradigm Virtual Surround designed by our engineers and made possible through our DSP-based amplifier platform adds hugely to its appeal as a movie machine. Customers get audiophile-quality immersive surround sound — all the fast-paced impact and surround magic of movies and multichannel music — from a compact 2.1 channel system. It’s also a great looking system that fits nicely into a variety of environments — that remains a big part of its appeal."
Included in the system are two speakers with adjustable stands, subwoofer with floor standing cradle, feet for use when sub sits in a horizontal position, redesigned ergonomic infrared remote control with 2 ‘AAA’ batteries included, full-function control box for instant connection to your audio/video equipment and the 6 audio cables needed for hook-up.
Millenia CT 2 speakers feature 1-inch S-PAL satin-anodized pure-aluminum domes and 4-inch S-PAL satin-anodized pure-aluminum bass/midrange cones. Brackets for wall mounting the speakers are available as optional system accessories. The low-profile subwoofer features an 8-inch reinforced polymer composite cone with 1-1/2-inch high-temperature voice coil. Position the sub vertically, horizontally or slide it away under a couch with no change to sound quality.
The Millenia CT 2 system is available in Black Gloss from participating Paradigm Dealers across North America or from the Paradigm website. FMV is $899.99 system.
An upgrade kit for current Millenia CT owners is available and it includes a control box for instant connection to your audio/video equipment as well as a new remote control with 3 ‘AAA’ batteries. FMV is $199.99.
