MADE FOR MORE THAN MP3

  

Of course Bluesound is compatible with MP3s – and just about every other digital format ever created – but Bluesound was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver blazingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.

  

THE FUTURE OF MUSIC IS FAST

  

Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, you’d think Bluesound was engineered for something more than just audio. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling, paired with our own innovative DirectDigital™ Amp and DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision, power and clarity – at any volume.

  

ALL THE MUSIC EVER RECORDED

  

Discover instant access to millions of songs. Premium high-res music services like TIDAL®, Spotify®, Rdio® and Qobuz® – as well as virtually all other popular music services and internet radio stations are already built-in. Access your downloads and your entire iTunes library – or any other USB NAS drive connected – all without ever turning on a computer. Imagine – Your Music. Your way.

  

  

HIFI YOUR WIFI

  

Bluesound uses your home wireless network, and sets up quickly. With an advanced WiFi antenna design and blazing-fast ARM Cortex A9 Processors, Bluesound ensures that there are no skips or delays in every corner of your home – even when streaming high-res audio files. Play your music in perfect sync, or play different music simultaneously, to any player in any room.
