For the high-end Hi-Fi that you (and your customers) have been waiting for, NAD have brought their pedigree to music streaming, multiroom and home automation in the form of NAD-BluOs and Bluesound.
Offering outstanding sound (24-bit 192kHz High Resolution plus MQA certified DACs) coupled with heaps of user- and CI-friendly features, including 12V triggers, presets, system interrupts’ rack-mountable, modular, and with comprehensively-featured drivers for Control4, Crestron, RTI, URC and Push, prepare for sonorous perfection.
To those who may be unfamiliar, BluOs is a proprietary operating system shared by high-end brands BlueSound and NAD Electronics. Unlike other solutions that rely on 3rd party software, BluOs is a dedicated ‘music only’ operating system that allows for connectivity to numerous cloud and network music services. In addition to the older streaming options, BluOs fully supports both Hi-Res Audio (HRA) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA).
The NAD-branded BluOs-enabled products comprise the ‘CI range’ and the Bluesound-branded range of BluOs-enabled products is the ‘standalone’ range. Each have the same or similar features across the two ranges with sometimes-subtle but important differences between them for the installer. All are equipped with powerful processors to make light work of the demands of HRA and MQA processing and, when combined with the 45-year experience of outstanding amplification from NAD Electronics, this is what drives the outstanding sound experience.
To quote a Grammy-award-winning co-producer: “I’ve compared the MQA playback with my original 88.2k 24-bit master and find the MQA to be mystifyingly more satisfying, and not by just a subtle shade…”
NAD-BluOs and Bluesound is not new to the UK. Amongst many other awards, Bluesound has won ‘What*HiFi Product of the Year’ award for three consecutive years. What is new is a re-invigorated approach to the channel with the appointment of Anatech Distribution as the distribution partner in the UK for both NADS-BluOs and Bluesound.
You can see the NAD-BluOs and Bluesound Range as well as meet Anatech Distribution on stand 15-E200 at ISE. If you can’t make it to ISE, you can see and hear NAD & Bluesound at Anatech’s offices in Teddington, West London.
