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. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling, paired with our own innovative HybridDigital™ Amp and DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision, power and clarity – at any volume.

Bluesound uses your home wireless network, and sets up quickly. With an advanced WiFi antenna design and blazing-fast ARM Cortex A9 Processors, Bluesound ensures that there are no skips or delays in every corner of your home – even when streaming high-res audio files.
