Streaming and connectivity enhancements make the Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i a more impressive speaker than ever.
Generation 2i Version Gen 2i brings a whole raft of streaming improvements. Apple AirPlay 2 is now supported, as is aptX HD Bluetooth. The HD version of aptX Bluetooth streaming supports 24-bit audio, making this the best quality Bluetooth connection to date. Another bonus is the adoption of dual-band wi-fi. The new wi-fi chip lets you take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band if needed. This results in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.
Two-way Bluetooth for compatibly with Bluetooth headphones Another bonus with this Gen 2i version is two-way Bluetooth. This not only lets you connect up Bluetooth music sources put also outputs to Bluetooth accessories, primarily Bluetooth headphones in this case.
With HDMI for improved connectivity Now featuring HDMI, the PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i is easier than ever to connect to your TV. With ARC (Audio Return Channel), the soundbar accepts the sound from your TV’s built-in Freeview, Freesat or other tuner without the need for additional cables.
Make your TV sound amazing If you’ve been using just your TV’s speakers for sound then you’re in for a shock when you hear what you’ve been missing! Connect up the award-winning Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i and prepare yourself to be totally immersed in rich, crystal-clear sound. With its six-driver, Hi-Res speaker system, the Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i not only has the power to fill the room but also the clarity to make dialogue easy to follow – even during the most explosive scenes.
