The $1,299 PW Sound bar features HDMI 2.0a connectivity with includes pass-through support for HDR/4K content as well as DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD decoding. In addition the sound bar offers to DTS' multiroom system Play-Fi.

The 46-inch wide unit is a little squatter than the existing Paradigm Soundscape, yet it incorporates nine 2.5-inch full-range drivers inside. The drivers are grouped in threes, and the company says they're situated so as to generate a wide soundfield.

Paradigm is one of a dozen different companies that supports DTS Play-Fi multiroom streaming. Play-Fi offers streaming from most services, including Pandora, Spotify and Tidal as well as hi-res support.

If the PW Sound bar is too rich for your blood, the company also offers the Soundplay which is based on the same speaker layout and chassis but minus the Wi-Fi and HDMI connectivity. The Soundplay is available for $899.

Customers will be able to add Play-Fi speakers from any brand to act as rear surrounds.
