Bluesound Pulse Mini 2i Multi Room Bluetooth Speaker
Award winning, portable wireless speaker with support for a wide range of music streaming solutions. Sounds fantastic, either on its own, or part of a Bluesound multi room system.
Bluesound Pulse Mini 2i can be placed on any bookshelf, countertop or end table letting you hear the difference that 60 Watts of tri-amplified stereo sound brings.
Bluesound Generation 2i, builds on the success of the originals and continues to strengthen the range with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Apple AirPlay 2 support, upgraded Bluetooth codecs, improved amplification/acoustics and more while maintaining value for consumers.
A patented dual-acoustic chamber with state-of-the-art DSP equalization maximizes bass power and clarity, while the high-performance 4” woofer pumps beautifully blended full-range sound into any room regardless of where you place it. Along with MP3s, Bluesound is compatible with almost every other digital format ever created but was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver strikingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.
Apple AirPlay 2
Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i is designed to support AirPlay 2 (to be delivered to Gen 2i owners via upcoming software update). With AirPlay 2, you can stream just about any sound from iPhone, iPad, or Mac to your Bluesound system — all in sync. Stream music, books and podcasts from your favourite apps, or watch videos on any Apple device while streaming the audio through to this Gen 2i Player – imagine watching Netflix on an iPad while filling the room with premium sound.
AirPlay 2 also gives users more options for control, including using Siri for voice assistance. Once you add your Gen 2i Player to the Apple Home App on your iPhone or iPad, Apple Music subscribers can use their iOS device or HomePod to say things like: “Hey Siri, play smooth jazz in the Living Room” or “Hey Siri, turn it up in the Kitchen.” By grouping a Gen 2i Player with older Bluesound Players in the BluOS App, existing customers can add AirPlay 2 compatibility to their entire BluOS system.
Gen 2i contains Bluesound’s most advanced take on Bluetooth to date – two-way Bluetooth, featuring both Receive and Transmit functionality. Receive capability allows users to wirelessly stream from their device to a Bluesound Player. The Transmit capability lets users now use their Bluesound Gen 2i Player as a source, sending what they are listening to via Bluetooth to a pair of wireless headphones.
aptX HD Bluetooth
While improving the Bluetooth connectivity in Gen 2i, audio quality improvements are also ensured. The advanced Qualcomm CSR8675 chip used in these new products also supports aptX HD Bluetooth wireless audio. aptX HD is an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit audio over Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. With the ability to support up to 24bit/48kHz, streaming from an aptX HD compatible device to a Gen 2i Player provides better-than-CD quality, wirelessly. It all fits into the Bluesound story – modern wireless convenience without sacrificing quality.
Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling is paired with their own innovative DirectDigital Amp and DAC platforms, ensuring that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision, power and clarity at any volume.
Updating to BluOS 3.0, all BluOS users will gain access to new music services like SOUNDMACHINE and Taihe Music Zone (China only) and an easier guided set-up process. Plumbing for BluOS’s first voice integration, Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant will be included, with the corresponding library of skills to launch soon. BluOS 3.0 also contains specific support for Gen 2i features like two-way Bluetooth with aptX HD, and enhanced audio EQ settings including wide mode and deep bass.
Hifi Your Wifi
Pulse Mini 2i uses your home wireless network and sets up quickly. With an advanced WiFi antennae design and ARM Cortex A9 Processors, Bluesound ensures that there are no skips or delays in every corner of your home even when streaming high-res audio files. Play your music in perfect sync, or play different music simultaneously, to any player in any room. Bluesound has upgraded the Wi-Fi chipset technology to the latest and greatest Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) dual-band offering. This allows you to take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band if needed resulting in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.
All-new, custom-designed digital amplifiers in Bluesound’s Pulse Mini 2i effectively double the available driving power. The difference is dramatic with improved bass response and more powerful sonic soundscapes.
The new driver configurations complement the upgraded amplification with the Pulse Mini 2i now functioning as a true stereo speaker. Users have better control over their audio settings. Popular DSP settings like Wide Mode, Late Night, and Dialogue from the Bluesound Pulse Soundbar are now available to these updated Gen 2i speakers.
The innovative mix of amp upgrades, driver reconfigurations and updated DSP settings breathe fresh life into the Pulse speaker line-up and reflects Bluesound’s commitment to creating the best wireless, multi-room home audio experience available.
