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.
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!).
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.
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
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.
