Blazing-Fast Streaming

Bluesound Players use an advanced WiFi chipset technology that results in much faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic. Bluesound also allows for users to stream audio using Gigabit Ethernet, making your connection method rock solid.

Endless Possibilities

With aptX® Bluetooth on Bluesound, you can wirelessly stream any music or app from a Bluetooth-enabled device in pure CD-quality. aptX® Bluetooth significantly reduces the bit rate without affecting audio quality or introducing latency issues, which allows listeners to enjoy higher-quality streams on any Bluesound Player, in or outside the home.

Built into every Bluesound Player is a revolutionary end-to-end (studio -speaker) technology known as Master Quality Authenticated (MQA), which captures and delivers master quality audio from your favourite artists’ recording sessions to any room in your home. Each Bluesound Player includes a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the MQA system, allowing you to hear exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.

Access & Stream Any Music

Discovering music has never been easier thanks to BluOS. Whether you’re streaming millions of songs from your existing music services, tuning in to your favourite Internet radio stations or listening to your music stored locally, BluOS lets you listen to your music anywhere in the home.
