Home entertainment just got a huge upgrade

The PULSE SOUNDBAR may be engineered to fit perfectly - and beautifully - under your TV but it is so much more than just a soundbar. As the world's first multi-room high-res soundbar it becomes your mission control to launch an audiophile-grade music experience in every room. Its deceptively simple design delivers the stunning authenticity of true 24-bit/192kHz high-res audio to whatever song you're playing but also makes watching movies, sports, video games and concert films a fully immersive sonic experience. You simply have to hear it to believe it.

This revolutionary all-in-one high-res system features 120 watts of direct digital power pumped through 6 individual amplifiers, feeding 8 speakers housed in isolated extruded aluminum chambers for a full, dynamic range and astounding bass response, all processed through the same kind of powerful multicore processor you can find in your smartphone or tablet. Yes, this soundbar comes with a computer inside. With the built-in BluOS multi-room OS and streaming app, you also have a multi-room sound system at your fingertips - and the ability to stream studio master quality files using the Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) audio codec. The first soundbar in the world to be able to do so.

Get ready to discover a whole new world of sound.
