The Bluesound Pulse is a wireless hi-fi audio system to use around your home. The leader in the field is (the more well known) Sonos. Bluesound, on the other hand, has superior sound but you’ll pay for that luxury.
The Bluesound Pulse is loud! The speaker pounds the spectrum when playing music in your home. The sound itself was engineered by and for audiophiles so clarity is the focus. When it comes to the sound, Bluesound gets everything right.
There are only a handful of service that connect to the system but that’s okay. With an added Bluetooth dongle, the Bluesound will connect to your smartphone or media player to deliver audio seamlessly. Plus, streaming music leader Spotify is represented as the Pulse works with Spotify Connect.
The Pulse also includes an optical hookup option which allows you to connect to your television or existing hi-fi system for some real high-end audio.
The Bluesound Pulse is loud, works great and keeps everything else simple. The only negative is the price which is way beyond most competitors (including Sonos).
