Crutchfield: Bluesound Pulse Soundbar
Big movie sound and high-res music streaming
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
The Bluesound Pulse is two products in one. First, it's a compact home theater soundbar. Second, it's a streaming music player capable of playing high-res files as part of Bluesound's whole-house music system. When we heard it at a training session, we were blown away by its sound quality.
The Bluesound Pulse sound bar is more than just an upgrade from your TV's built-in speakers. It's the flagship speaker in Bluesound's wireless hi-fi system, and it supports hi-res audio playback. So whether you're looking for a serious improvement over your TV's current sound, you want to enjoy your favorite music in rich detail, or you're building the ultimate multi-room system, this sound bar is an excellent choice.
We had a chance to listen to the Pulse sound bar at a recent training. We expected it to perform well during a Hollywood action scene and it did. But we were blown away when we started listening to music. What's even more impressive - we were listening to hi-res files streaming from a tablet. To achieve this great sound quality, Bluesound uses a true 3-way speaker design: the speaker features two 1" tweeters, two 2" midrange drivers, and two 4" woofers. Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier channel.
The Pulse integrates into Bluesound's wireless, whole-house audio system, too. Add Bluesound players in other rooms, and you can start enjoying hi-res audio throughout the house. Best of all, it's all controlled by an app on your smartphone or tablet. To integrate even more of the music you love, this sound bar is compatible with many digital music formats, including high-res files up to 24/192. You can stream music from internet radio stations and online services, like Spotify, Tidal, and Deezer. And for even more connectivity, the Pulse sound bar features built-in Bluetooth, an optical input, USB input, and an analog RCA input.
With the Bluesound Pulse sound bar, you'll hear all the details in your movies & TV shows, and you'll have access to almost limitless music options. If you have any questions about this or other sound bars, just give Crutchfield a call.
