The BluOS 2 module has a new more powerful ARM Processor for
a quicker, more responsive user experience. As an internal module there are no
external wires or power supplies required and integration with the firmware is
hand-in-glove. Both Ethernet and Wi-Fi operate in asynchronous mode for lowest
jitter performance and allow connection to music stored anywhere on the local
network or streamed directly from the Internet using popular music services
like Spotify Connect, Tidal, and TuneIn. You can also play music from a USB
drive or hard drive via the USB A port. Bluetooth® with aptX is also natively
integrated so you can wirelessly connect to any smartphone, tablet, or
Bluetooth-enabled device within range and stream your favorite music apps or
libraries in high-fidelity.
BluOS is accessed using the local area network and free apps
for mobile devices and desktops to control and manage your music BluOS also
integrates with many third-party home automation systems.
HANDS-FREE VOICE CONTROL WITH ALEXA.
Add the BluOS Voice Skill inside the Amazon Alexa app and
enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music collections, streaming
services and more using a list of simple streamlined commands. Using an Echo
device you can ask Alexa to play popular songs from Tidal, queue up saved
playlists, adjust the volume in different rooms, or ask what’s playing in the
Kitchen. No Echo device and want to try it out? No problem. Download the Amazon
Alexa app, activate the skill, tap the speech bubble in the bottom drawer of
the Amazon Alexa app and say anything from the list of commands.
While the expected functions of Play/Pause/Skip are present,
BluOS also brings all of your music together integrating locally stored music
(like iTunes) and music streaming services. BluOS does not rely on middleware
like UPnP/DLNA/AirPlay with their inherent limitations, but instead creates
direct shares with music in all formats including FLAC, ALAC and WAV with data
rates up to 24/192. Playlists can be created and managed right inside the BluOS
App. Gapless playback is supported and the BluOS-2 module is fully compatible
with Bluesound High-Res Wireless Multi-room Players to form integrated
With AirPlay 2*, you can connect multiple AirPlay-enabled
devices around the house and have them communicate with each other through
AirPlay. Listen to your music in perfect sync as you walk room-to-room, or play
different songs in different rooms, and control everything on your Apple
device. You can even say the song you want to listen to and where and let Siri
take control of your music experience.
Includes an external USB WiFi module to optimize signal
