BLUESOUND Introduces New PULSE SOUNDBAR+ To Lineup of Wireless Home Theater Products
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, March 18, 2021 – Bluesound, maker of award-winning high-definition wireless multi-room audio players, announced the PULSE SOUNDBAR +, a brand new soundbar extension to the brand’s high-performance ecosystem. The PULSE SOUNDBAR + is the ultimate audiophile soundbar that meets all home entertainment requirements. The PULSE SOUNDBAR + ($ 899 in black, $ 999 in white, US MSRP) is available in a choice of black or white and can be configured for a range of home entertainment applications. To make installation easier, it is supplied with a wall bracket and two stand feet. The PULSE SOUNDBAR + can be pre-ordered now and will be delivered from April 2021.
The PULSE SOUNDBAR + is a system solution that replaces the need for bulky AVRs. The PULSE SOUNDBAR + was designed to fit perfectly under HD televisions. Thanks to its many features, including support for Dolby Atmos, high-resolution 24-bit audio, 120 watt full-frequency multi-room and multi-channel audio, it offers a rich sound experience and a variety of connectivity options.
DOLBY ATMOS SUPPORT
A complete redesign of the audio chain with advanced DSP processing now supports 3D audio from Dolby Atmos, which means the PULSE SOUNDBAR + offers a wider, higher and more enveloping soundstage.
SURROUND YOURSELF IN SOUND
With 24-bit audio processing, 8 drivers in audiophile quality and a total output of 120 watts, the PULSE SOUNDBAR + Audio is what the 8K television is for video. The PULSE SOUNDBAR + can generate deep and crisp bass itself and can also be combined with the PULSE SUB + to create dramatic soundscapes for music, films, concerts and games. Simply add a pair of PULSE FLEX 2i speakers as rear channels for a full wireless Dolby Surround Sound experience.
FLEXIBILITY FOR EVERY ENTERTAINMENT
Connect almost any audio source to the PULSE SOUNDBAR + using a range of wired and wireless, digital and analog connectivity options. Televisions, game consoles, music streaming services, laptops and music libraries can be accessed via HDMI eARC, Apple AirPlay 2, bidirectional aptX HD Bluetooth, TOSLINK, RCA, USB and our proprietary BluOS music streaming system.
MORE POWERFUL, MORE EFFICIENT
Designed for end-to-end efficiency, the PULSE SOUNDBAR + features a powerful, custom ARM Cortex A53 quad-core chipset that processes audio eight times faster than previous generations of the Bluesound architecture. Combined with two WiFi chips to avoid network latency, this flagship board design delivers solid audio performance with no lag, even for demanding gaming applications.
PRECISION APP CONTROL
The PULSE SOUNDBAR + offers a range of control options that make it easy to integrate home entertainment into everyday life. Newly added simple touch controls on the front now provide quick access to play, pause and volume. With just a smartphone or tablet, the built-in wireless BluOS multiroom streaming technology can connect and synchronize audio to, from and around any room in the house. Hands-free control of your home entertainment is made possible with popular voice assistants from Google, Amazon and Apple, while professional smart home integrators get access to drivers for popular control systems such as Lutron, Crestron, RTI, Elan and others.
As with all Bluesound PULSE speaker models, the acoustic design and speaker voice at Canada’s National Research Council was carried out by Lenbrook’s renowned speaker design and engineering team.
“In 2016, Bluesound launched the world’s first high-resolution soundbar, setting the bar for outstanding audio quality in the category that continues to this day,” said Matt Simmonds, Product Manager at Bluesound. “With the PULSE SOUNDBAR + we are continuing to work on innovations and improvements and are committed to ensuring that hi-fi hearing aids listen to everyday life, even in product categories in which the importance of audio quality is traditionally overlooked.”
