BluOS ecosystem expands to bring greater flexibility to modern music lovers
MHE 2017, Munich, Friday May 19th – Today, DALI Loudspeakers, the internationally acclaimed Danish speaker company, and Canada-based brand development company, Lenbrook International, announced a worldwide partnership whereby DALI will offer the BluOS high-resolution multi-room platform as an extension of its upcoming wireless speaker solution, soon to be unveiled. The announcement marks DALI’s entrance into the growing multi-room streaming category, and signals BluOS as the preferred initial platform choice for DALI products of the future.
“There is a growing list and wide variety of wireless multi-room audio solutions that loudspeaker companies can choose to develop on,” stated Lars Worre, DALI’s Managing Director. “Our team reviewed the options and our performance values led us to the BluOS platform, which has earned an enviable reputation as a world leader in this space. For DALI this is a strong pathway for our future roadmap and it provides increased flexibility for discerning audio customers around the world.”
“DALI is a highly respected company with 34 years of unwavering dedication to its pursuit of audio performance,” commented Gordon Simmonds, CEO of Lenbrook Corp, the company leading the BluOS development program. “Given our roots in high fidelity audio, we simply will not allow computer technology companies to convince users that compressed audio is true hi-fi when we know it is not true hi-fi. Therefore, DALI’s decision to join the BluOS ecosystem is another important signal to the world that convenient and modern access to high resolution audio matters, and BluOS is the platform of choice for this ambitious task.”
BluOS is an award-winning proprietary, but brand-agnostic, platform, which means that any BluOS Enabled product connected to the same WiFi network can share music libraries and playlists, regardless of the brand of speaker or audio component. With the addition of DALI as a hardware partner, music lovers will be able to choose from a variety of traditional hi-fi and modern wireless products from DALI Speakers, NAD Electronics, and Bluesound, to create a wireless whole home audio system that suits their lifestyles, without compromising on audio quality.
