What makes Soundscape a standout product?
Paradigm award-winning sound quality! It's a giant sonic step above anything available at the big box stores. Paradigm engineering delivers four beautifully designed 4" composite cone woofers that serve up deliciously deep bass. Our own Digital Signal Processing platform makes sure every note of that bass is clean and musical. Tailor the listening experience with switchable EQ modes to suit placement on a wall or flat surface. Action packed movies or multichannel music? With Dolby Digital encoded material, turn on the Dedicated Movie Mode with Paradigm Virtual Surround for a breathtaking surround experience (full details on this later). Switch to Music Mode for 2-channel listening. Bluetooth capability with aptX coding for high quality audio streaming. Charge Bluetooth devices from another room while continuing playback in the same room. A subwoofer's not necessary, but one can be added (sold separately), a transmitter is built in and a wireless sub receiver is included.
Beautiful OLED display
The Paradigm Soundplay's onboard OLED display is made from an organic material that emits its own light, unlike a traditional LCD display that requires a backlight and filters. The striking advantages of an OLED display include superior contrast, wide viewing angles, and a fast response rate.
Behind the scenes?
Special Soundscape features and why they're important The three full-range driver complements are physically separated into separate channels within the cabinet. This ensures sound from all channels travels widely throughout the room. A nice change from typical soundbars on the market, stereo imaging is immaculate. Superb reproduction of the original live event or original recording session. You'll find yourself dodging and ducking as special effects and surround sound flies around the room ... a true edge-of-the-seat movie experience.
Placement Options For Every Application
The unique positioning of the 9 drivers provides 3 distinct placement options without sacrificing audio performance. Whichever mounting position you choose, the OLED display remains “right-reading”.
3 x 1" high-power ferro-fluid-cooled dome tweeters:
Ah! The purity of pure-aluminum dome tweeters. A rarity at this price. What's the benefit? Ferro-fluid cooling the voice coil radically improves power handling so that reaching the high notes is never a problem.
Soundplay drivers are divided into three sets within the narrow soundbar structure. Each set is aimed at a scientically-determined angle, to send sound information out to specific locations within your listening area. This driver-aiming arrangement delivers a more uniform sound field, with more dynamic range and more realistically blended response, than any other soundbar in this class. Soundplay succeeds where other soundbars fall flat: All around you.
4" High-Power Bass/Midrange Woofers
Our composite cone woofers deliver a superb low-mass, high-stiffness ratio. What's the benefit? Excellent sound reproduction in the higher midrange and fast transient response (explosions, special effects are heard and felt!).
Paradigm Virtual Surround Explained
In systems without dedicated surround or rear speakers, much of the wonder and magic of surround sound is lost since there are no physical speakers to deliver it. Carefully mixed by recording engineers in the studio, this precious information sits neglected and unheard in front left and right speakers. Paradigm Virtual Surround. developed by Paradigm engineers, ensures that none of that surround magic is lost. Humans have the ability to hear sound in three dimensions. Through sophisticated mathematical algorithms that capitalize on this ability, Paradigm Virtual Surround processing gathers all the neglected surround sound information in a central sweet spot, then reflows it back into front left and right channels, sending it out into the room in a way that creates the auditory illusion of sound swirling around us. An auditory 'illusion' perhaps, but to our ears this experience is very very real, lifting the Soundscape experience to a realm that is spacious, authentic, immersive and magically engaging.
Audio Optimized For Any Space
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. You’ll actually hear the difference Anthem Room Correction makes. Premium Wireless products also now support ARC Mobile, making it even easier to tune your speakers using an iOS device.

Proprietary Class-D Amplification with Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
What's the benefit of Digital Signal Processing in already-high class of amplification? Our proprietary DSP platform uses sophisticated algorithms to shape frequency response so that even when Soundscape is playing loud, bass remains clear and musical. DSP is also the processing power behind spacious Paradigm Virtual Surround Sound (see below). Room-filling spaciousness or deep bass? In most soundbar designs, it's a trade-off. Not here! Our DSP-based algorithms deliver the best of both worlds – deep musical bass and spacious, room-filling sound. In a soundbar, it's rare to have both!
Partnered with the NRC
Paradigm is partnered with Canada’s world-renowned NRC in ongoing research to reveal the true nature of sound and human hearing. Findings influence design and performance specs, resulting in a uniquely realistic listening experience, backed by sound science.
