From network amplifiers to soundbars to virtual assistant speakers and more, Bluesound has an extensive catalog of products. They’re now available at B&H Photo, and I’ll be walking you through it all to help you find what you need.
The POWERNODE 2i is a 2.1-channel network amplifier that’s available in black matte or white. It enables streaming via Apple AirPlay 2, Bluetooth 5.0 (with aptX HD support), and your connected NAS drive, as well as services like TIDAL, Spotify, Qobuz, and more. An HDMI eARC port takes audio from your compatible TV’s built-in apps, and two combination 1/8" / optical inputs let you plug in your favorite wired audio sources
The NODE 2i and VAULT 2i are network audio players that enable you to stream your networked audio library throughout your Bluesound ecosystem or on your existing home theater system. The VAULT 2i is available in black matte and white and has a built-in 2TB HDD and CD player; the NODE 2i is also available in black matte and white and omits optical drives.
The PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i is currently available in white and outputs up to 120W of total power. You can stream audio to it via AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, or over your network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. The soundbar is also expandable to a full surround sound system by pairing it with your PULSE FLEX 2i speakers (more info on these later) and either the 200W, 8", wireless PULSE SUB+ (black matte or white) or another subwoofer connected with the RT100 Wireless Subwoofer Adapter. Voice control is available via Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant, and Apple Siri.
Wireless Speakers and Accessories
The PULSE 2i Wireless Speaker (black matte or white) outputs up to 150W of total power from its two 5.2" woofers and two 1" tweeters. A recurring theme for Bluesound, this speaker has Ethernet, Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth 5.0 with aptX, and can be controlled by Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant, or Siri. The PULSE MINI 2i, also available in black matte or white, is (as you’d expect) a more compact version of the PULSE 2i, with two 4" woofers and two 0.75" tweeters outputting up to 100W, and sports all the same wireless and streaming features.
The PULSE FLEX 2i is available in matte white and matte black and connects to your Wi-Fi network, enabling streaming from your favorite services. You can control it via Alexa, the Google Assistant, or Siri and create whole-home audio with multiple Bluesound players and speakers. The PULSE FLEX 2i is unique among the Bluesound product line in that you can add on a black or white BP100 Battery Pack and take it with you wherever you go, converting it from a home wireless speaker into a portable Bluetooth speaker, and bundles are available in black or white that include both the PULSE FLEX 2i and the battery pack.
If you’re using your PULSE FLEX 2i speakers in the home permanently, you can mount them on the wall with the PULSE FLEX Wall Mount Bracket, which is available in either black or white to match your speaker.
If you’re looking to place your PULSE SOUNDBAR 2i and your TV on a piece of furniture, consider the PULSE SOUNDBAR TV Stand, which supports most TVs up to 65" and 77.1 lb.
While many popular voice assistants will let you control most Bluesound hardware with just your voice, a Remote Control is also available to provide convenient handheld control of all your equipment on the same network. There’s an additional control option, as well: The BluOS app, which brings together all your Bluesound components and provides handheld control from anywhere within your network’s Wi-Fi range. It even walks you through the setup process of your system.
Bluesound offers a slew of options for home theater and music enthusiasts. So, if you’re looking to up your audio game, contact us by phone at 800-606-6969, chat, or email for friendly, knowledgeable advice. If you’re in the neighborhood, come into the B&H SuperStore.
