Bluesound has announced the addition of Stereo Surround mode for Bluesound PULSE soundbar and POWERNODE models with the next BluOS 3.12 maintenance release effective November 24, 2020.

Bluesound owners using the home theater group setting will now have the option of using the Stereo Surround mode. Using proprietary technology borrowed from sister brand NAD, Stereo Surround mixes 2-channel sources into the rear surrounds of a home theater group, generating an immersive surround field. Fans of 2-channel sound might enjoy experimenting with the user activated BluOS Stereo Surround listening mode to maximize their surround sound listening experience.

According to the company, Stereo Surround extracts the natural ambience present in nearly all well-produced stereo recordings. It does not synthesize any ambience or other sonic elements and thus remains truer to the sound of the original recording than most other home entertainment surround options.
