Model Lineup

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
