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 PULSEmini 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, PULSEmini connects to a main music server, be it an Innuos Music Server, Roon Core, HQ Player or any Logitech Media Server based server. The PULSEmini 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 PULSEmini.

TEAM PLAYER
PULSEmini is an incredibly capable music streamer that plays well with others; like others in the PULSE series, it’s perfect for playing music stored on other devices thanks to its flexibility and easy streaming from a NAS drive, music server or music streaming services seamlessly.

The Ear’s “Best Buy”

Reviews

`` Anyone looking to get a good start with streaming should consider it and likewise anyone with a decent DAC will be surprised at what it can deliver. It competes with entry level models from the big brands by keeping the casework compact and devoid of displays with the money spent where it counts. The Sense app is excellent too and an a clear upgrade on the apps found with some of the more established brands in this game. All in all the Pulsemini is a streamer that can deliver high resolution musical entertainment to an impressive standard for its price.``
