The CI 580 V2 packs four stereo zones into a 1U rack space to provide the most flexible and cost-effective BluOS package. Multiple CI 580 V2s can be used to provide as many zones as required, and each zone can be grouped together in perfect sync using the BluOS Controller app, or you can play individual streams in different zones simultaneously. The CI 580 V2 is now more flexible than ever with AirPlay 2 built-in for easy integration into the Apple ecosystem.
Unlike other solutions that rely on UPnP, the CI 580 V2 features the BluOS operating system. BluOS supports many popular music services with playback of music at up to 24/96.

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into all of NAD’s BluOS Enabled CI solutions to capture and deliver MQA music to any and every room in your home. All BluOS Enabled amplifiers and systems include a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the millions of the MQA encoded songs, The MQA logo shown in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.
In 1972, a new kind of audio company was born. NAD took form when a large group of audio-industry importers in Europe, all music lovers, set out to develop products that cut through the industry hype. The goal of NAD was to prove that excellent sound quality and excellent value could exist together. It was a formidable goal – some of the most reputable electronics brands of the time were unaffordable to most, while the affordable spectrum of the market was dominated by poor quality imports from global electronics giants. NAD’s founders remained undeterred and their original vision led to an inspiring story of how a group of specialty audio mavericks took on the Goliaths of the audio industry to carve out a unique place of their own.
Like NAD's home-theatre and Hi-Fi products, the focus of the Custom Integration (CI) range is on performance with DACs, OPAmps, and passive circuit components selected for musical sound quality. NAD is dedicated to innovation, performance, value, and simplicity in all their products.
