Online streaming services, internet radio and even your own digital music library imprisoned on a computer, smartphone or external drive – the playback choices become infinite.
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.
