Designed to be the sound system for your TV, the new Pulse Soundbar 2i uses a single HDMI cable to connect to your television's HDMI ARC (audio return channel) port, allowing you to sync the picture and audio together and use CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) to seamlessly pair your TV remote to the Pulse Soundbar 2i. The Pulse Soundbar 2i automatically detects and decodes a Dolby Digital signal from your TV and delivers crystal-clear sound and deep bass (even without a subwoofer) when streaming movies, sports and games. It's the world's first soundbar certified by Dolby for wireless surround sound and the one that your 4KTV deserves.
Gen 2i continues to strengthen the Bluesound line with dual-band Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2 support, upgraded Bluetooth codecs, improved amplification and acoustics, and more while maintaining value for consumers with minimal changes to retail pricing.
