Bluesound Announces Pulse Soundbar+ with Dolby Atmos

At $899, Bluesound’s more powerful audiophile-grade Pulse Soundbar+ supports Dolby Atmos, 24-bit hi-res audio and low latency wireless streaming.

Bluesound Pulse Soundbar+ and Sub+ in White

Bluesound today announced the company’s 3rd generation PULSE SOUNDBAR+. It replaces the PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i, ushering in support for Dolby Atmos thanks in part to a new ARM Cortex A53 Quad-Core chipset that’s said to be 8x faster than its predecessor.

The PULSE SOUNDBAR+ is a system solution that replaces the need for bulky AVRs. Designed to fit perfectly under HD TVs, the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ offers a fully immersive sonic experience thanks to its range of features, including support for Dolby Atmos, 24-bit high resolution audio, 120 watts of full frequency multi-room and multi-channel audio, and a wide array of connectivity options. For ease of installation, it comes supplied with a wall mount bracket as well as two kickstand feet.

Dolby Atmos Support

A full audio-chain redesign with advanced DSP processing now supports 3D audio from Dolby Atmos, meaning a wider, higher, and more enveloping soundstage from the PULSE SOUNDBAR+.

Surround yourself with sound

Featuring 24-bit audio processing, 8 audiophile-quality drivers, and 120 watts of total power, the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ is to audio what the 8K TV is to video. Capable of deep and crisp bass on its own, the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ can also be paired with the PULSE SUB+ to create dramatic soundscapes for music, movies, concerts and games. Simply add a pair of PULSE FLEX 2i speakers as rear channels for a complete wireless Dolby Surround Sound experience.

Flexibility

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. With the PULSE SOUNDBAR+, we continue to innovate and refine, making good on our commitment to bring hi-res, HiFi listening to everyday life, even in product categories that traditionally overlook the importance of audio quality.”Matt Simmonds, Bluesound Product Manager
