Don’t Forget Your Plus One, With Bluesound
Stamping their authority on the multi-room audio market, Bluesound, the relatively new kid on the block has an offer too good to refuse this Christmas.
Released only last month Bluesound's PULSE Soundbar is the world's first high-res audio certified soundbar, and don't be mistaken, it's very much 'hi-fi' in sound.
StereoNET attended the launch in Sydney last month and foolishly thought the crisp sound we heard was eminating from the pair of Bowers & Wilkins floorstanding speakers flanking the PULSE Soundbar. Needless to say, we put our own order in right away (review coming).
The PULSE Soundbar builds upon the BluOS platform, enabling the TV to be the heart of a whole-home wireless music system. Intended for use with flat panel displays 42” or greater, it uses many high-end hi-fi techniques to achieve its unparalleled performance, including true 3-way speaker configuration with tri-amplification.
Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier channel and powerful digital signal processing (DSP) for the crossover filters. Combined with the stylish black cabinet manufactured from extruded aluminum (no plastic here), PULSE looks right at home in any living space.
The key feature of Bluesound aside from high-resolution audio capability, is their BluOS multi-room capability (which can now also be found embedded in NAD products). Now your Soundbar can be an independent music zone within your house, in addition to your bathroom, kitchen, or alfresco area. The possibilities are endless (well not quite, you are limited to 64 zones or rooms, but if you manage to buy enough product to max that out, let us know and we'll give you an award!).
To celebrate Christmas this year Bluesound is running a promotion via participating dealers to allow you to truly experience the BluOS platform benefits. When you buy the PULSE Soundbar, add one extra zone with a Pulse Flex speaker, and save $200.
Pulse Flex is the ideal speaker for the bedroom, kitchen or study, with assignable presets and optional battery pack allowing you to go portable. This is a great way to get into a whole-home audio solution, and simply add more zones as your needs change or budget allows.
