If you are a true audio connoisseur, listen up – the future of music is changing and YOU can get ahead of the trend and beat the masses! For the first time since 1982 the entire music industry has agreed to the same music file format. People, MQA is the future and if you don’t take note and ensure you have a MQA certified DAC, you’ll get left behind in the dust. MQA is studio mastered original recordings that are sent to you in full 24 bit 192 KHRTZ – this is at least 4 times the quality that competitors currently can offer. Bluesound does this now, does it well, and does it wirelessly! Mic drop.
Bluesound states it “was the first and most award-winning wireless hi-res multi-room system to let users play music in any and every room of their home.” With their system and products you can control crisp detailed music, the volume and speakers used from the convenience of your free intuitive BluOS app that can be easily installed on your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. Bonus – the BluOS app is licensed to 3rd party brands so you’re not locked into an infrastructure – you can use your Bluesound products with whatever else you have and love in your home system. Easy peezy.
Bluesound is a quality Canadian product that’s proven itself a superior product in a niche market because it delivers ultra-high quality sound for high res music. Their players are compatible with just about every digital format that’s available, including loss-less FLAC, WAV and MQA up to 24bit/192kHz – for those who will settle for nothing less than studio-master-quality sound. I also love that this brand is like a buffet of products that can work together or separately….mix and match the components to accommodate your budget, room set up, house design or dream desires. No need for hard wiring your house to have a home audio system or kick-ass theatre. How brilliant! Additionally, the system is simple to set up, manage and update.
