When it comes to hifi, whether you stream from music services, a NAS or a dedicated music server, you want your music to sound its best. Your network music player needs to ensure you hear music the way it was intended. This is where the Innuos PULSAR really shines. PULSAR is the star of the Innuos PULSE series network music players and it is packed with things that make it stand out the moment you hear it. As amazing as PULSAR is on the ears, it is equally beautiful to the eyes, both inside and out.
PULSAR is made with a full bead blasted and anodised high grade aluminium chassis in your choice of silver or black, that is both elegant and classic, but the best is still reserved for what is inside.
- Custom ARC6 module with active rectification and over 130,000 μF of Mundorf capacitors
- Integrated PhoenixUSB Lite reclocker for a smooth yet fast and detailed sound
- 300 VA audio grade toroidal transformer
- Single level cell SSD with custom CX regulator module
- Three independent power rails, one each for the main Board, SSD and reclocker
Beneath the shell
Beneath its sleek exterior, the PULSAR is packing a custom ARC6 module (active rectification with six capacitors) with active rectification, over 130,000 μF of Mundorf capacitors followed by a large inductor and a massive 300 VA audio grade toroidal transformer with an epoxy-filled centre for damping vibration, and magnetic screening with coated SYN-SHIELD copper tape between windings and wrapped in black Mylar tape.
PULSAR features an optimised USB output to take sound quality to the PULSE line’s highest level by incorporating a PhoenixUSB Lite reclocker. The reclocker is powered by a custom CX regulator module.
The SSD hosting the innuOS operating system in PULSAR is also upgraded to a SLC (single level cell) module, as opposed to the more common TLC (triple level cell) for the best durability and lower operating power noise.
As with the PULSE, asymmetrical feet are installed on PULSAR to support the player while also being strategically placed to help damp vibration from the sound system during playback. It is the little details like this, combined with larger ones like the power supply and integrated PhoenixUSB Lite reclocker that make for unforgettable playback.
