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, 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.
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.
With its compact footprint, low-power efficiency, quiet operation and range of connectivity, the PULSEmini is a convenient and discreet music streamer for all your music from an Innuos music server, HiFi streaming services and internet radio.
The PULSEmini offers more than just casual usage – the innuOS Operating System, paired with a custom motherboard and premium components offer far greater musical performance than using a computer for streaming.
