Innuos PULSE Network Player

£2,299

The Innuos PULSE Network Music Player is the perfect choice for someone seeking a bit more out of their player. As the middle player of the PULSE series its sound quality, performance and value simply can’t be ignored. 

Providing a step-up from the PULSEmini, the engineers at Innuos have added some significant improvements that increase the PULSE performance. For starters, PULSE raises the bar by integrating a new custom RECAP2 LPSU power supply, designed in collaboration with Dr. Sean Jacobs. The RECAP2 uses only high-grade components including:

  • Medical-grade filtered IEC
  • Audio-grade toroidal transformer with an epoxy-filled center for dampening vibration, magnetic screening with coated SYN-SHIELD copper tape between windings and wrapped in black Mylar Tape
  • Over 40000 µF of high-end Mundorf Capacitors
  • Coilcraft Inductor

BUILT TO PERFORM
PULSE has upgraded coaxial and optical digital outputs with the addition of a balanced AES/EBU digital output for further connectivity with audio systems.

Asymmetrical feet are installed on PULSE to support the player while also being strategically placed to help dampen vibration from the sound system during playback. Even small details like this can add up to improving your music listening experience.

The PULSE also has 8GB RAM for handling even larger music library databases.

FLEXIBILITY
Each PULSE series Network Music Player has two modes – these modes give you the flexibility to configure your network music player to work the way you want it to. Your music, played your way.

In Standalone mode, you can use the Innuos Sense app to play streaming services, Internet Radio and music stored on a NAS, to a multitude of audio systems. In this mode, the PULSE becomes the center of your audio system, enabling you also to use the Sense app with other streaming devices on your network.

In Endpoint Mode, PULSE connects to a main music server, be it an Innuos Music Server, Roon Core, HQ Player or any server running Logitech Media Server. The PULSE will then show as a zone on the respective music server app and you can use your preferred app to browse and play music through the PULSE.

Convenient Design

With its compact footprint, low-power efficiency, quiet operation and range of connectivity, the PULSE is a convenient and discreet music server for all your music from an Innuos music server, HiFi streaming services and internet radio.

Hi-Fi Engineering

PULSE was designed as the perfect step up for better music playback – its high-quality power supply components, floating SDD for the innuOS Operating System, paired with a custom motherboard and premium components offer substantially improved

Connectivity Made Easy

PULSE outputs PCM up to 32bit/768kHz as well as up to DSD512 via USB to compatible DACs. It features coaxial, optical SPDIF and AES/EBU outputs capable of up to 24bit/192kHz.

Powerful Performer

The sum of PULSE’s parts make for one remarkable Network Music Player. The high-grade components used in PULSE’s improved power supply reveal more depth, spaciousness and presence in your music for a memorable listening experience.

Pulse’s 8GB of RAM is double that of the PULSEmini for improved search speed.

Using our exclusive innuOS operating system, PULSE is configured and optimized from the ground up for the perfect balance of performance and simplicity. Control your library from the comfort of your tablet or smartphone – no computer required.
