The Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR supports Dolby Digital and Dolby Atmos* (PULSE SOUNDBAR+ only) when decoding audio from your television. When setting up PULSE SOUNDBAR ensure to connect all devices to your television, and the television to your PULSE SOUNDBAR’s OPTICAL IN/HDMI (ARC/eARC).
If PULSE SOUNDBAR is grouped for multiroom listening, the PULSE SOUNDBAR decodes DOLBY content from your television and converts the audio output to PCM for other players in the group.
An error message is displayed when connecting Bluesound Players other than PULSE SOUNDBAR to television with Dolby enabled output. To resolve this, disable the Dolby output and select PCM output in the TV settings. Refer to the television manual for more information.
PULSE SOUNDBAR (all generations), POWERNODE (N330), and POWERNODE 2i (with HDMI) are the only Bluesound models supporting DOLBY Decode.
- The PULSE FLEX outputs Dolby content provided it is a part of a Bluesound Home Theater – Fixed Group with the PULSE SOUNDBAR. When directly grouped with the PULSE SOUNDBAR instead of a Home Theater Group, the audio output is down-converted to full PCM.
- HDMI not available in the PULSE SOUNDBAR - Generation 1 model.
- *Dolby Atmos will be available in a future software update.
