Bluesound has lowered the price of its PULSE Soundbar, which was first introduced in late 2016 for $999. The new price for the basic black model is $799, while the white finish costs $899. The PULSE Soundbar is a three-way design that uses six speakers (two tweeters, midrange drivers, and woofers) powered by a 120-watt DirectDigital amp; there are also two passive radiators. The soundbar can be added via Ethernet or Wi-Fi to a Bluesound multi-room audio system, which supports hi-res audio streaming and MQA file playback.
Bluesound has enjoyed both critical praise and commercial success with the PULSE SOUNDBAR since its introduction a little more than a year ago. With its new price of $799 for the black finish and $899 for the white finish, the PULSE SOUNDBAR provides performance-minded consumers with an affordable entry point to the finest sounding hi-res soundbar on the market--a perfect fit with their high-definition TV. As the TV is the home entertainment hub in most homes, it's also the perfect starting component for a Bluesound wireless, multiroom music system. All prices are U.S. MSRP and effective immediately.
The Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR is the world's first to feature hi-res network audio streaming. With BluOS, Bluesound's powerful wireless multiroom streaming operating system, the PULSE SOUNDBAR enables the TV room to be the heart of a whole-home wireless music system that delivers the world of hi-res music to all members of the household through an easy-to-use app available for smart devices.
Since its introduction, the PULSE SOUNDBAR has received global critical acclaim and awards as one of the top products in the category. With one of the world's only certified wireless implementations of Dolby Surround Sound, audiophile-grade high resolution audio capabilities, and access to popular and niche music streaming services, the PULSE SOUNDBAR has been lauded for its versatility as an all-around performer for those who love home entertainment.
"The soundbar category continues to be strong performer industry-wide," commented David Cain, Bluesound's global Vice President of Sales and Commerce. "By positioning the Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR at an even more affordable price point worldwide, it becomes a great entry point for consumers who want to enjoy high-resolution sound for their high-definition TVs."
Last fall, by popular demand, Bluesound announced the addition of white as a color for the PULSE SOUNDBAR and its companion PULSE SUB. In addition, the proprietary BluOS operating system has undergone continuous enhancements, providing greater performance, control and flexibility, including an expanding number of compatible high-fidelity audio components and smart-home control technologies.
