Major Upgrade For Bluesound OS, 24Bit Dolby Sound In Every Room
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 high-fidelity 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.
