The Pulse 2 is an all-in-one streaming player, complete with built-in speakers. A full range of frequencies comes through rich and clearly, and blends seamlessly together through careful engineering and design that fits a woofer in with two mid-to-high range drivers.
Place the PULSE 2 on a bookshelf, countertop or end table, and hear the difference that 80 Watts of tri-amplified stereo sound can bring to any room. A patented dual-acoustic chamber with state-of-the-art DSP equalization maximizes bass power and clarity, while the high-performance 5.25” woofer pumps beautifully blended full-range sound into any room.
Of course Bluesound is compatible with MP3s – and just about every other digital format ever created – but Bluesound was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver blazingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.
Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, you’d think Bluesound was engineered for something more than just audio. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling, paired with our own innovative DirectDigital™ Amp and DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision, power and clarity – at any volume.
Wirelessly stream any music stored on your iOS (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) or Android device directly to any Bluesound Player over WiFi to instantly enjoy your entire mobile music library – every song and every playlist. Bluetooth’s highest bitrate protocol – aptX – is also built into every Player, opening up a whole new realm of CD-quality streaming possibilities for you, or anyone in the room with a Bluetooth device.
