Ma­jor Up­grade For Blue­sound OS, 24Bit Dolby Sound In Ev­ery Room

SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK // Bluesound - Writ­ten by DAVID RICHARDS

Blue­sound who make the award win­ning 24Bit sound sys­tems has moved to add new fea­tures with the re­lease of a new 2.14 ver­sion of its BluOS Con­troller app.

The up­grade lets you wire­lessly con­nect a Pulse Sound­bar and Sub to a pair of Pulse Flex speak­ers to act as ded­i­cated rear sur­round chan­nels. In that con­fig­u­ra­tion, the Pulse 4.1 sys­tem sup­ports Dolby Dig­i­tal sound­tracks.

The new app also brings a smat­ter­ing of other im­prove­ments. Deezer HiFi (the stream­ing ser­vice’s CD-qual­ity of­fer­ing) is now ac­ces­si­ble across all BluOS-en­abled prod­ucts. And an op­ti­mised music en­gine within the app also al­lows for a “more re­spon­sive ex­pe­ri­ence and eas­ier brows­ing” with quicker ac­cess to lo­cal music, playlists and music-stream­ing ser­vices.

Blue­Sound’s first-ever wire­less sur­round sound sys­tem can be in­te­grated into any TV room, and as part of the BluOS multi-room ecosys­tem, al­lows users to ac­cess on-de­mand music ser­vices and stream dif­fer­ent music to mul­ti­ple rooms, or lis­ten to the same music si­mul­ta­ne­ously all around the house.

“We‘re mak­ing wire­less home theatre sim­ple by putting the lat­est sur­round sound codecs in a smart multi-chan­nel

sys­tem that de­liv­ers im­mer­sive high­fi­delity sound,” com­mented Matt Sim­monds, prod­uct man­ager at Blue­sound. “With­out com­pro­mis­ing any of our de­sign, acous­tics or en­gi­neer­ing, our cus­tomers can en­joy all their movies, TV shows, and video games and ex­pand the lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to any room in the home.”

Via the BluOS app lis­ten­ers can se­lect one of three lis­ten­ing modes for the Pulse sound­bar (TV, Music and Movie) and fine tune each of the modes with set­tings in­clud­ing Late Night, En­hanced Di­a­logue, Deep Bass and Lip Sync De­lay.

The Pulse Sound­bar, Sub and Flex are avail­able now. Ex­ist­ing own­ers of prod­ucts can up­grade their prod­ucts via the soft­ware up­date.
