Product Research


Compatibility: The NAD BluOS Kit is compatible with NAD's VM130, VM130i, VM300, or VM310 MDC module (sold separately) for select NAD AV receivers & preamplifiers. The BluOS Kit plugs into either module via USB.

  • VM130: The VM130 works with NAD's T 757 and T 758 AV receivers.
  • VM130i: The VM130 works with NAD's T 758 AV receiver.
  • VM300: The VM300 works with NAD's T 187, T 777,  and T 787 AV receiver; as well as the NAD M15 and M17 AV preamplifiers.
  • VM310: The VM 310 works with NAD's T 187, T 777, T 787, and T 778 AV receivers; as well as the NAD M15HD and M17 V2 preamplifiers.

BluOS: You can now add BluOS network and internet music streaming with advanced music management to select NAD receivers and preamplifiers using the NAD BluOS Kit. Featuring BluOS, the music management software developed by NAD's sister brand, Bluesound, the BluOS Kit turns your compatible NAD receiver or preamplifier into a complete digital music solution.

  • Compatible Multiroom Audio Sources: The following audio sources can be used for multiroom audio playback - internet radio (including TuneIn & iHeart Radio); online music services (including Tidal, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer, Slacker, and Napster); Bluetooth & USB audio, plus music libraries (from computers and NAS drives). *NAD components using the BluOS Kit are unable to share their analog or digital inputs with other BluOS devices due to hardware limitations.
  • Number of BluOS Zones: Up to 16 Bluesound devices can be connected in a strictly wireless environment. Demonstrated practice has shown that you can create up to 8 groups of 8 Bluesound devices or 4 groups of 16 Bluesound devices. If you want to connect more than 16 Bluesound devices, you will need to connect the Bluesound devices to your network using a wired connection. BluOS can then control up to 64 devices in a strictly wired environment.

Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The NAD BluOS Kit supports a wired (Ethernet) or wireless (WiFi) connection when using the VM300 MDC module, but only a wireless connection when using the VM130 MDC module. The BluOS Kit comes with a pre-installed WiFi (802.11 b/g/n dongle). The Ethernet (RJ-45) port for the wired connection is actually found on the VM300 MDC module and not on the BluOS Kit. Either network connection allows you to stream music from your Windows or Mac computer and NAS drive (such as the Bluesound Vault, sold separately); as well as stream select online music services.

Note: The included WiFi dongle is pre-installed in the BluOS Kit. If you experience poor WiFi reception, unplug the WiFi dongle and plug in the included 23" USB extension along with the WiFi dongle to extend the BluOS Kit's WiFi range.

Bluesound Controller App: The free Bluesound Controller App turns your Apple iOS (7.0+) iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android (OS 4.0+) smartphone/tablet, Windows (Vista higher) PC or Mac (OS X 10.7+) computer into a full-featured remote control for the Bluesound wireless music system. The Bluesound Controller App on your compatible device uses your home's WiFi network to connect with Bluesound devices, so you can play all the music you love anywhere in your home for a wireless multiroom music experience. Get on-demand access to your music libraries on your home network, stream live Internet radio from almost any place in the world, or listen to one of the many music services available on Bluesound, all from the palm of your hand with the easy-to-use Bluesound Controller App.

Supported Music Formats: The NAD BluOS Kit and Bluesound eco-system supports both low-res and high-res audio files; including MP3, AAC, WMA, OGG, FLAC, ALAC, WMA Lossless, MQA, WAV, and AIFF. Bluesound has been designed to work with today's larger music collections, and has indexed libraries up to 100,000 songs in demonstrated practice (this will depend on the music's metadata & artwork). Bluesound also offers gapless playback by default for all supported file music types.

Compression File Type Sampling Frequency Bit Rate or Bit Depth
Compressed Lossy MP3 16-48kHz 192-320 kbps
Lossless WMA-Lossless up to 96 kHz up to 24-bit
FLAC 192 kHz up to 24-bit
Uncompressed AIFF up 192 kHz up to 24-bit
Note: Bluesound cannot index or play AAC files with the extension ".m4p". These files were purchased in iTunes prior to 2009 and are subject to copy protection. Apple Consumers with an iTunes Match subscription can delete and re-download these files free of charge from their iTunes Cloud

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated): Bluesound is the first wireless multiroom audio system to support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated). MQA is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that captures and delivers master quality audio in a file that's small enough to stream or download. Bluesound worked closely with MQA to implement technology inside each Bluesound component to ensure the listener will hear MQA encoded music and streams exactly like the source and the way the artist intended you to hear it when it was approved in the studio.

Note: MQA (Master Quality  Authenticated) support will require a firmware update.

Online Music Services: With a network and internet connection, the NAD BluOS Kit lets you access select online music services & internet radio. The Bluesound Controller app on your Apple iOS or Android device will serve as the controller for these apps and provide song/artist information with Album Art.

  • Spotify Connect: If you subscribe to Spotify Premium and have the Spotify App on your Apple iOS or Android smartphone, you can stream Spotify to the Bluesound system. Spotify is a digital music service that gives you on-demand access to one of the largest music libraries in the world (over 15 million tracks and counting). Spotify makes it easier than ever to discover, manage, and share music with your friends. You can browse music by artist, album, track, or most popular; and create your own music library with customized playlists.
  • Tidal Connect : The integration of Tidal Connect will enable Tidal users to instantly select and wirelessly stream music to the Bluesound device from within the Tidal app (for Apple iOS and Android OS). TIDAL is a global streaming service that offers over 30 million songs in high-fidelity CD sound quality. TIDAL has two pricing tiers; either $9.99 or $19.99 a month. Both pricing levels allow you to access TIDAL's entire music library. The $19.99 tier has the added benefit of high-fidelity sound at CD-level quality.
  • TuneIn: The Bluesound eco-system includes access to more than 70,000 free internet radio streams from all corners of the globe via the TuneIn radio service. Just select the TuneIn logo from the main Music menu and browse among the 70,000 stations neatly organized into popular categories and select a station that appeals to your mood.
  • iHeart Radio: iHeartRadio is a free, all-in-one digital radio and music streaming service that lets you listen to thousands of live stations from across the country and allows you to create personalized custom stations featuring songs from the artist you select and similar music.
  • Napster: Napster is a streaming music subscription service (starting a $10 per month) that allows you to play the full-length songs you choose on demand from a collection of over 10 million songs, without ads and without having to purchase or download the music.
  • Slacker: Get the sound quality that you deserve with the new Slacker Radio® music library available in high-quality AAC audio on Bluesound. Listen to music streams at a bitrate of 320kbps and enjoy all your favorite Slacker stations in pristine MP3-quality.
Note: Availability of online music services may vary by region. Not all services may be available at time of purchase. Some services may be added or discontinued from time to time based on decisions of the music service providers or others.

Computer Audio: The NAD BluOS Kit will pull music from an existing digital music library across the network on your Windows PC or Mac computer using Windows or SMB File Sharing (SAMBA) and the Bluesound Controller App for Windows & Mac.

  • Windows: Music files stored on a Windows desktop or laptop can be accessed by Bluesound using Windows File Sharing. You will need to download the Bluesound Share Utility for Windows - Bluesound Share Utility Windows This utility will work on Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10.
  • Mac: Music files stored on an Apple iMac or MacBook can be accessed by Bluesound using SMB File Sharing. You will need to download the Bluesound Share Utility for OS X - Bluesound Share Utility OSX utility will work on any version of Apple OS X 10.8.x and higher.

You'll be able to stream stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled device to your compatible NAD receiver or preamplifier. You can even distribute Bluetooth audio to the rest of your Bluesound wireless audio system throughout your home or office over WiFi.

Note: The included Bluetooth dongle is pre-installed in the BluOS Kit.

Dual USB-A Ports: The NAD BluOS Kit features two USB (type-A) ports to directly connect your USB mass storage class (MSC) device; such as a thumbdrive or external hard-drive.

Not only can USB audio be played back on your compatible NAD receiver or preamplifier, but can also be wirelessly distributed to the rest of your Bluesound components throughout your home for multiroom playback. The USB port is not compatible with the direct connection of an Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android devices.

Customer Q&A

2 questions already asked

I have a NAD C372 Stereo Integrated Amplifier. Will this dongle work with this amplifier to stream music from my iPhone? I subscribe to Primephonic and hope to use my vintage JBL 100 speakers (1975) to listen to Primephonic. If the NAD BluOs Kit will not work, can you suggest a dongle which would work? Thanks, Joe Friedman

I do not know. I have NAD T787 with the 300 MDC. I cannot get it to work on mine and it should. Problem is when I plug into the USB the wifi does not show up on my phone so that I can set up to my home wifi system. I would not buy at this point.

Will this work with the NAD M51 dac?

I do not have the M51, but I have the BluOS adapter, which I have connected to M187 pre-pro. The M51 does not appear to have the right USB input for it. NAD c658 DAC looks like what you want (from NAD). My DAC is PS Audio.
