Featuring BluOS, the music management software developed by NAD’s sister brand, Bluesound, the DD-BluOS 2i module is a complete digital music solution at an amazingly affordable price. Thanks to the forward-looking innovation of NAD Modular Design Construction, you can now add BluOS network and internet music streaming with advanced music management to your compatible NAD amplifier and add compatibility with Bluesound’s BluOS wireless music system. That means you can integrate your compatible NAD component into a wireless multi-room music system. Stream songs on your main system as well as Bluesound speakers throughout your home.
Being an internal module, there are no external wires or power supplies required and integration with the NAD operating firmware is hand-in-glove. Both Ethernet and Wi-Fi operate in asynchronous mode for the lowest jitter performance and allow connection to music stored anywhere on the local network or streamed directly from the Internet.

In addition to a standard Local Area Network, BluOS requires an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet (NAD offers free iOS and Android Apps) to control and manage your music. While the expected functions of Play/Pause/Skip are present, BluOS also brings all of your music together integrating locally stored music (like iTunes) and music streaming services. Play the same song everywhere or stream different music to different zones at the same time. You can even use an Apple Watch to control your system.
BluOS does not rely on middleware like UPnP/DLNA/AirPlay with their inherent limitations, but instead creates direct shares with music in all formats including FLAC, ALAC and WAV with data rates up to 24/192. Playlists can be created and managed right inside the BluOS App. Gapless playback is supported and the DD-BluOS is fully compatible with Bluesound High-Res Wireless Multi-room Players to form integrated whole-house systems. Includes an external USB WiFi module to optimize signal strength.
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. The selection of supported services — including TIDAL and Spotify as well as many others — is one of the most impressive we’ve seen. In fact it is so good that most of the staff use it at home.
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.
NAD is dedicated to innovation, performance, value, and simplicity in all their products.
