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.
PLAY MUSIC DIRECTLY FROM YOUR MOBILE.
Wirelessly stream any music stored on your iOS (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) or Android device directly to any Bluesound Player over WiFi to instantly enjoy your entire mobile music library – every song and every playlist. Bluetooth’s highest bitrate protocol – aptX – is also built into every Player, opening up a whole new realm of CD-quality streaming possibilities for you, or anyone in the room with a Bluetooth device.
Bluesound has been the recipient of numerous awards—including multiple Product of the Year and Best Buys awards—from leading audio publications such as What Hi-Fi? and Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity. Since its inception, Bluesound has been committed to delivering clear, detailed sound and it is this commitment that has been met with a wide range of positive reviews from the likes of Residential Systems, Home Cinema Choice, AVS Forum, and many more.
