Paradigm published details about their powered 42-inch 5.1-channel soundbar with dedicated Music and Movie Modes, Virtual Surround, Bluetooth with aptX technology, Dolby Digital and Hex Codes, designed for people who want a high quality surround sound system without any requirement for additional A/V electronics.
Drivers comprise four 4-inch mineral-filled polypropylene cone woofers and three 1-inch satin-anodized pure-aluminum dome tweeters. Driver complements are physically separated into three sections (L/C/R) within the cabinet, for sonic clarity and channel separation. The complement is arranged perpendicularly to achieve the low-profile design.
The Soundscape’s user interface controls Power, Volume and synching of an external subwoofer (sold separately). The integrated 7-character display offers navigation of numerous customizable features including: dedicated Music and Movie Modes with Paradigm Virtual Surround, treble/bass adjustments, virtual surround on/off, renaming of sources for convenience and comprehensive IR learning with discrete Hex codes. Soundscape can learn power on/off, source select, volume up/down and mute from a TV’s remote so that both the Soundscape and the TV can be controlled via a single remote.
Bluetooth and aptX streaming technologies as well as AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) are part of the package, enabling remote control of Bluetooth sources directly from the Soundscape. This feature also allows the user to charge their Bluetooth device from another room while still allowing playback and control via the Soundscape’s remote control or top-panel interface. Soundscape offers specific EQ modes, one for on-wall placement, one for placement on a flat surface. The DSP-based amplifier is, also, the platform for Paradigm’s proprietary Paradigm Virtual Surround sound processing and Dolby Digital decoding.
The Soundscape’s rear panel offers digital optical and analog stereo inputs that can be renamed for convenience and include: 2 x Optical S/PFIF, 1 x Coax S/PDIF, 1 x Analog RCA Right/Left, 1 x Sub-Out and Bluetooth (wireless). Analog outputs are included for wired subwoofer connection.
