Bluesound has cut the price of its Pulse Soundbar with immediate effect. The black finish model has dropped from £999 to £799, with the more recent white iteration now £899. A white version of the Pulse Subwoofer is also available.

For existing Bluetooth High-Res Audio music systems, the Pulse is a natural addition. Built upon the BluOS, it's fully compatible with other Bluesound systems, and can stream High-Res files to any connected Bluesound speaker, as well as access popular music streaming services. Unusually, the Pulse soundbar also boasts a wireless implementation of Dolby Surround Sound.

“The soundbar category continues to be strong performer industry-wide,” says 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.”

Bluesound has also announced a new update of the BluOS (version 2.16), which includes enhancements or fixes for over 100 bugs; a new, prettier UI for the app controller; 368 and 388 upgrades to BluOS boards where fitted and auto-turn on for streaming.

The update also offers better IP control for custom integrators, including third party system updates for C4, Crestron, Lutron and Elan.
