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.

Features

Modular Design Construction: The advantages of a pure digital system are many, but one drawback is the constantly changing delivery formats for digital content. Each of these formats typically requires specialized hardware and software, often with licensed IP and content copy protection. For this reason, NAD places all digital interface circuitry on easily upgradeable modules. NAD calls this 'Modular Design Construction' or 'MDC'.

Compatibility: NAD's DD BluOS module allows you to easily integrate Hi-Res Audio, network streaming, Bluetooth audio, and the music control BluOS App into select NAD C series digital integrated amplifier and Masters series digital preamplifiers.

BluOS: Featuring BluOS, the music management software developed by NAD's sister brand, Bluesound, the DD BluOS module is a
complete digital music solution. Thanks to the forward-looking innovation of Modular Design Construction (MDC), you can now add BluOS network and internet music streaming with advanced music management to your NAD C series digital integrated amp or Masters series digital preamplifier

Ethernet & WiFi Connectivity: The DD BluOS module provides both wired (Ethernet) and wireless (WiFi) connectivity to your home's network and internet.

You also get access to talk radio and podcasts. In addition, you can save your favorite Internet radio stations as "My Favorites".
    • Rdio: Rdio is an online digital music with a catalog of 20 million songs and interruptions or advertisements. Rdio makes it easy to find what you're looking for, whether it's an artist, album, song, or a custom playlist. A $10.00 per-month Rdio subscription is required.
