Featuring BluOS, the music management software developed by NAD’s sister brand, Bluesound, the DD-BluOS 2i module is a complete digital music solution at an amazingly affordable price. Thanks to the forward-looking innovation of NAD Modular Design Construction, you can now add BluOS network and internet music streaming with advanced music management to your compatible NAD amplifier and add compatibility with Bluesound’s BluOS wireless music system. That means you can integrate your compatible NAD component into a wireless multi-room music system. Stream songs on your main system as well as Bluesound speakers throughout your home.
As an internal module there are no external wires or power supplies required and integration with the NAD operating 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.
Advanced Control Options: In addition to a standard Local Area Network, BluOS requires an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet (NAD offers free iOS and Android Apps) to control and manage your music. 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. Play the same song everywhere or stream different music to different zones at the same time. You can even use an Apple Watch to control your system.
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 DD-BluOS is fully compatible with Bluesound High-Res Wireless Multi-room Players to form integrated whole-house systems. Includes an external USB WiFi module to optimize signal strength.
A Wealth Of High-Resolution Streaming Options: BluOS can send 24-bit high-res music to any room in your home, without any loss of sound quality. Stream music from your personal library or from internet streaming services. The selection of supported services — including TIDAL and Spotify as well as many others — is one of the most impressive we’ve seen. In fact it is so good that most of the staff use it at home.
