Bluesound - Pulse Sub+ - Wireless Powered Subwoofer

$1,299.00

Thank you for visiting The Audio Tailor.

We’re Stuart, Gabby, Liam and Vaughan. It’s a pleasure to have you here!

The first question we get from customers usually starts with, “What’s the difference between...”

When you’re shopping for new speakers, a turntable, or even thinking of putting together that home theatre of your teenage dreams - you’ll likely be faced with stacks of comparisons.

Why would I buy the Bluesound Pulse 2i when the Flex 2i is half the price?

Is Bluesound the best?

Should I wait for a sale? Or get this now? What will I be missing out on when the new model comes out next year?

Endless questions. Lots of FOMO. Loads of hmm-ing and ha-ing.

And there SHOULD be.

Because you don’t go to a Hi-Fi store and drop $2000, $3000, or $15000 on something you're not 100%, positively, secure-in-your heart sure of.

It’s a lot of hard-earned money on the line.

Imagine doing hours of your own research. Reading up the suppliers’ websites, taking notes from Hi Fi blogs, categorizing the differing opinions as you trawl r/audiophile. You know what you’re getting. You’ve narrowed the online stores down to the final five. You’ve checked and re-checked that you’re getting the best deal. You’re sure you’re not getting ripped off by shipping.

You hit the “Checkout” button. Momentary relief!

That is...

Until your speakers haven’t arrived by the estimated delivery date and you have yet to hear a peep about its progress.

Until your new turntable arrives with a crack in the dust cover.

Until your long-awaited amp set-up fails to deliver the kind of sound you had in mind. Now you’re not even sure if you got the right one anymore, or how to troubleshoot it.

What could possibly be worse?

What about: No after-sales service. No phone number to call. And no one responding to your tickets.

Not to mention the hundreds of man hours you’ve already lost on reading layman opinions from the likes of Graham H. from Melbourne and Sarah D. from Perth; dutifully scrolling through pages and pages of reviews. Torturing yourself by looking for all the ones with less than 3 stars... when you could have been sitting back and diving into a whole new world of immersive sound and deliciously satisfying body vibrations.

Would it make sense to go to audio specialists that know brands, specs, and installation like the back of their hands?

Should you spend less time on weighing up pros and cons and more time enjoying good music?

Want to get the absolute best home theatre for your budget and surroundings without the weight of 100++ brand offerings bogging you down?

We like to think so!

And that’s why we’re here. Two things to know about us:

Thing 1: We were voted Australia’s 2021 Hi Fi Retailer of the Year (Yay! And THANK YOU!)

Thing 2: This is purely because we are sound specialists and audioheads - NOT salesmen.

We got into this business because we genuinely love audio and because we realized there was a lot of faceless dropshipping in the HiFi industry - and not enough expertise out there. People who keep coming back to us do so because they’re getting attention to detail and individualized solutions that they can’t find elsewhere.

Our clients don’t need to worry about budget, brand name, or size.

All they need to worry about, is talking to us.

Because, when you come to us, you’re in for a conversation.

We want to know the picture in your head.

That final portrait of you back from the flea market with Pearl Jam’s Ten, eager to place it gently upon a turntable you haven’t quite decided on yet.

A summer barbeque in your garden with the boys. Having a yarn around a beer-filled cooler while appreciating the crisp, clear, quality of sound streaming through the open doors of your listening space.

The kids having mates over - quiet for once - immersed in a good movie, lights out, in the comfort of the home theatre that is your pride and joy. “I wish we had one of these at our place!”

Once we know precisely what your ultimate scenario looks like, we’ll want to know what you’re working with.

What kind of budget have you set aside?

What’s the existing set-up look like?

How big is the listening room you have in mind?

How much ambient light is coming in?

Are you running drywall or wood panelling? Carpet or hardwood?

What about room resonance and reflection?

No idea what we’re going on about? No worries. We intend to talk you through all that. Our aim is that you get the absolute best sound system for your home, at a price point you’re happy with, and an aesthetic you can’t help but want to show off.

To get to this end goal, an unhealthy interest in all things audio simply isn’t enough. That’s why we spend countless hours behind the scenes sourcing products from only the most reliable brands and trustworthy suppliers - regardless of their branding and marketing.

We don’t rely on them to tell us what’s good about their equipment. We’ve developed our own proactive testing process to judge what’s what. So you get hands-on knowledge every single time. Coupled with our tight networks and stable supply chain meticulously refined over the years, we strive to ensure that the experience you get at The Audio Tailor is personal, seamless, and painless.

Personal, because it’s uniquely you in musicality, design, and taste. Your options are hand picked by us from amongst some of the world’s biggest, best, and most dependable brands.

Seamless, because we’re only small. You get one of us. Not one of dozens of salesmen milling about the place, working for commission and pushing the most expensive products.

Painless, because we don’t recommend anything until we’re clear about your needs. We follow up with you to make sure everything’s arrived in one piece. For us, the transaction isn’t over until your equipment is safely installed and fully satisfying.

TL;DR

Some of the big things we feel are missing in the HiFi world are:

  • The need for expertise before, during, and after the sale
  • A vast wealth of comparative knowledge, and
  • A commitment to end-to-end service.

At The Audio Tailor, we hope we’ve made it clear that service doesn’t shut off when a problem pops up. It’s an opportunity to tighten the ship we run, bolster our 5-star reputation, and most importantly - make someone’s day.

Hi! We see you’ve actually made it to the end of this page. Love it!

We’d like to end this by giving a shout out to all the enthusiasts and audiophiles we’ve been fortunate enough to work with over the years. It has been a privilege to share our desire, passion, and journey for the purest sound and finest entertainment solutions for your homes and businesses.

Thank you to all our customers - past, present, and future - for helping us chase after something above the ordinary.

To make your audio dreams come true - call, email, or hop on down to our Brisbane store.

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

    Brand Description

    What is Bluesound?

    Bluesound is a brand of wireless Hi-Fi devices that are small, sleek looking, technologically super smooth, and pack a punch in the sound department.

    When you’re shopping Bluesound, you’re potentially looking for:

    That one thing that will replace a bunch of hardware, or
    You want to take the music out of your listening room and spread it all over the house without a drop in sound quality or volume.

    That’s right. You can pretty much use Bluesound to turn your entire place into one giant listening room. 

    All you need is a Bluesound streamer, and a few of their wireless speakers.

    If you know exactly what you’re looking for, then start adding to cart. Our intelligent, hyper-competitive, dynamic pricing system means that you’re unlikely to be paying a lower price anywhere else. Prices update quickly though, so, if you see something you like, snag it now at the discounted price before you miss out!

    If you still have a few questions, then keep reading. The following information is for you. You’ll have noticed that Bluesound devices come in different shapes, specs, and price points.

    Two questions that tend to pop up over and over are, “Which model do I get?” Followed by, “What’s the difference?”

    Is the Powernode 2i really better than just the Node 2i because it’s more expensive? 

    Would getting the Vault 2i be better value for money in the long run? 

    Does the “multiple technologies in one device” design mean it’s better or go big or specialize a little more? 

    If I go for more functions, does it affect the sound quality at all?

    These are all great questions. You might be able to find individual opinions - and lots of differing ones at that - if you look around online. Common complaints we get from our customers however, are that:

    These opinions vary a lot
    The forums have a tendency to get awfully technical, and 
    You can never tell if the information is commercially endorsed or a genuine review.

    At The Audio Tailor, we cut through all that noise so you can save hours of scrolling. Our job is to make sure you have the exact model that works for your personal circumstances. That means we want to hear from you first. We’ll advise only after we have a solid idea of your dream set-up, budget, and the amount of space you have to play around with.

    Personalised service is what we do best. Sure, we find it keeps you happy and it gives us an excuse to geek out on Hi-Fi. But, most importantly, it solves almost all future problems before they even have a chance to materialise. 

    When was the last time you imagined a product was going to be this life-changing magical thing… only to be disappointed by unmet expectations when you got down to using it. 

    Before you go down that road, why not make it a point to eliminate all those frustrating future sighs of, “If only I had known!” 

    It’s too easy. Just call us on 1300 308 711, email us at sales@theaudiotailor.com.au, or even better - drop on in to our Brisbane store for a personal consultation so we can get you to experience the differences instead of just telling you. If our thousands of reviews are anything to go by, you’ll be glad you did!

    If you’re old enough to remember having a CD or a cassette collection, then you might remember how amazing it felt the first time you heard an mp3.

    The magic of digital files means that most music consumed today has no physical presence. Streaming is fast and easy. Downloads serve you well when there’s no WiFi available. You’ll find yourself hoarding music because you never know what kind of listening mood might strike next. Music consumption changes over time. You need something that fits in with your lifestyle right now.

    If you need something: 

    Flexible, that adapts to streaming services like iTunes, Spotify, or YouTube Music; and the existing devices you already have in your set-up.

    Fluid, because nobody in 2021 is going to put up with lag and annoyingly un-sticky syncs.

    Intuitive, because who has time for complex, fiddly technology?

    Compact, because it looks good and fits into small spaces.

    Powerful, because size shouldn’t stop it from playing music you want to dive into and melt away with.

    Well-defined, because music is best enjoyed like a fine wine. With rounded, full notes. A robust richness. And layers of complexity which are all discernible if you savour its delicate flavors hiding behind the main melody...

    Enter Bluesound. A range of select wireless devices which encompass all the above.

    Bluesound makes your life easier without sacrificing any sound from a traditional, often clunky Hi-Fi or home theatre set-up.

    Don’t let it’s compact size deceive you. Bluesound is crafted with its own cutting-edge technology and powered by 50 years of industry experience through its sister brand - the original Hi-Fi audiophiles - NAD.

    The powerful Bluesound streamers amplify music in a way that makes it sound better, into wireless speakers you can place anywhere.

    Why contain music to one listening space? The days of cranking up the volume in the lounge so you can hear it while cooking in the kitchen, can now be a thing of the past. 

    If you enjoy the feeling of walking through a cinema and flooding your senses with perfectly synched, lag-free sound, Bluesound is an option you shouldn’t be ignoring.

    Call us on 1300 308 711, email us on mailto:sales@theaudiotailor.com.au, or come see us at our Brisbane store so we at The Audio Tailor can answer any of your Bluesound questions. 

    Don’t settle for guess-work when we can offer calculated recommendations depending on what you need, where you need it, and how much you want to spend on it. See you soon!
