Bluesound, makers of the award-winning hi-res wireless line of audio players, announced a software update for the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ that introduces all-new audio settings for realistic home theater sound and adds support for the immersive power of Dolby Atmos.

The PULSE SOUNDBAR+ is the ultimate audiophile-grade soundbar that will satisfy any home entertainment need. It is offered in a choice of Black or White finish and is configurable to a range of home entertainment applications. For ease of installation, it comes supplied with a wall mount bracket as well as two kickstand feet.

AN IMMERSIVE DOLBY ATMOS EXPERIENCE

The unique BluOS implementation of Dolby Atmos in the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ features four virtualization profiles - Movie, Music, Late Night and Off – giving customers more features than typical in other soundbar implementations of Dolby's audio processing technologies. While content that is encoded in Dolby Atmos will provide the most realistic experience, any content – from two-channel all the way up to seven-channel – can be virtualized to provide users a wider, higher, and more enveloping soundstage. Great care has been taken to assure the timbre of the audio remains natural anywhere in the listening environment.

"We are extremely excited that BluOS 3.16 brings a whole new dimension to our customers' home theater experience with the PULSE SOUNDBAR+," says Matt Simmonds, Bluesound Product Manager. "Many brands overlook audio quality when implementing new technologies in the soundbar category, but at Bluesound, audio quality comes first. So we're delighted that our team's decades of software engineering and HiFi audio design experience has made Dolby Atmos in a two-channel soundbar more believable and natural than ever."

FLEXIBILITY FOR ANY ENTERTAINMENT SETUP

Connect nearly any audio source to the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ via its array of wired and wireless, digital and analog connectivity options. TVs, gaming consoles, music streaming services, laptops, and music libraries can be accessed through HDMI eARC, Apple AirPlay 2, two-way 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-specified ARM Cortex A53 Quad-Core chipset that processes audio 8 times faster than previous generations of Bluesound architecture. Combined with two WiFi chips to prevent network latency, this flagship board design offers rock solid and zero-lag audio performance, even for demanding gaming applications.

Precision app control

The PULSE SOUNDBAR+ offers a spectrum of control options, making it easy to weave home entertainment into everyday life. Newly added simple touch controls on the front panel now offer quick access to play, pause and volume. With just a smartphone or tablet, the built-in BluOS wireless multi-room streaming technology can connect and sync audio to, from, and around any room in the home. Hands-free control of your home entertainment is made possible with popular voice assistants from Google, Amazon, and Apple, while professional smart home integrators can get access to drivers for popular control systems like Lutron, Crestron, RTI, Elan, and others.

Like all Bluesound PULSE speaker models, the acoustic design and speaker voicing was performed at Canada's National Research Council by Lenbrook's renowned speaker design and engineering team. "In 2016, Bluesound launched the world's first Hi-Res soundbar, setting the bar for audio excellence in the category that continues to this day," Simmonds continues. "With the PULSE SOUNDBAR+, we continue to innovate and refine, making good on our commitment to bring hi-res, HiFi listening to everyday life."
