The folks at Paradigm are known for home audio, but this is the first time they've ventured into the world of soundbars. Their first is known as the Soundtrack System, and while it won't blow your mind, it does deliver decent specs for the price.

There are those of us that absolutely love having giant and unique looking speakers in our home theaters and there are those of us that don't. Bowers & Wilkins appeals to both of those audiences, but their CI-800 line is all about the folks that are into subtlety. In total there are three speakers in the line, a pair of two-ways – one in-ceiling and one in-wall – and a three-way speaker that can mount either horizontally or vertically.
Most makers of home theater systems are more concerned about economy than quality and appearance, but Samsung has taken some interesting steps recently that make their home theater in-a-box (HTiB) solutions incredibly interesting even if they’re still of HTiB quality. The biggest improvement is something you’re not going to find in any similar products – a tube preamp.
The folks over at KEF have announced a total of 11 new speakers designed to give you high quality sound without making your room’s aesthetics suffer. They utilize the KEF Ultra Thin Bezel and magnetic grilles to allow you more flexibility in installation, a side effect of which also makes them well equipped for bathrooms, yards, boats or anywhere else where humidity might be a factor for other speakers.
Soundbars are traditionally very simple things. A soundbar system will consist of a single bar and, depending on the make and model, a subwoofer. Sharp went a different way with their latest, offering you the ability to split the bar in half and have two vertical speakers.
