Blue­sound has launched the world’s first 24-bit mul­ti­room high res­o­lu­tion sound­bar, which claims to de­liver au­dio­phile-grade bass re­sponse with­out a sub­woofer.

The new ‘Pulse Sound­bar 2i’ launches in Novem­ber, and is de­signed to fit per­fectly un­der a 4K TV.

The sound­bar pledges seam­less in­te­gra­tion with a users’ ex­ist­ing home theatre sys­tem, to lis­ten to movies, sports and TV shows in high-fidelity au­dio.

The new Pulse Sound­bar 2i fea­tures six in­te­grated high-per­for­mance speak­ers and two pas­sive ra­di­a­tors, to cre­ate a fully im­mer­sive sonic ex­pe­ri­ence.

Util­is­ing a three-way tri-am­pli­fied speaker de­sign, each driver is driven by its own ded­i­cated am­pli­fied chan­nel. Low and high fre­quen­cies are blended us­ing DSP-pow­ered cross­over fil­ters. Each driver is housed within in­di­vid­u­ally op­ti­mised cham­bers - thereby elim­i­nat­ing vi­bra­tions - en­abling the sound­bar to de­liver deep bass with­out dis­tor­tion.

Pro­vid­ing to­tal con­trol, users can con­nect the Pulse Sound­bar 2i to mul­ti­ple Blue­sound play­ers within a home to form an in­tu­itive multi-room mu­sic sys­tem.

Users can also pro­gram IR re­mote com­mands and set lis­ten­ing pref­er­ences via the BluOS Con­troller app.

Pro­vid­ing added in­tu­ition, the sys­tem is com­pat­i­ble with voice com­mands via Ama­zon’s Alexa.

In ad­di­tion to TV/movie au­dio, own­ers can stream any mu­sic li­brary from their smart­phone or tablet via Blue­tooth aptX HD.

HDMI ARC in­put also claims to make con­trol­ling au­dio en­ter­tain­ment eas­ier than ever.
