Bluesound has announced the addition of Dolby Atmos audio options to its PULSE SOUNDBAR+.

Bluesound, makers of the hi-res wireless multiroom line of audio products, has announced a software update for the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ that introduces all-new audio settings for realistic home theater sound and adds support for Dolby Atmos.

Ahead of the U.S. Black Friday holiday, customers will be prompted to update their PULSE SOUNDBAR+ and experience an incredible soundstage that brings a whole new dimension to movies, music, games and shows.

The Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR+ ($899 in black/$999 in White, U.S. MSRP) is designed to satisfy any home entertainment need. The PULSE SOUNDBAR+ is configurable to a range of home entertainment applications, and it comes with with a wall mount bracket and two kickstand feet.

The BluOS implementation of Dolby Atmos in the PULSE SOUNDBAR+ features four virtualization profiles— Movie, Music, Late Night and Off—to give customers more features than typical in other soundbar implementations of Dolby’s audio processing technologies. While content that is encoded in Dolby Atmos will provide the most realistic experience, any content—from two-channel all the way up to seven-channel—can be virtualized to provide users a wider, higher, and more enveloping soundstage.
