Bluesound Professional audio ecosystemBluesound Professional has released a suite of products the for its distributed audio ecosystem for commercial spaces.

The B100S BluOS Network Streaming Player is a rack-mounted, single-zone streamer, designed to be connected either to a distribution amplifier with passive speakers, or directly into powered speakers. Up to three B100S units can fit into a 1U-high rack space with the optional RM100 rack accessory. The B400S 4-Zone BluOS Network Streaming Player is a slim, 1U-high rack-mounted unit that can stream audio content to up to four zones and be connected to either a distribution amplifier with passive speakers, or directly into powered speakers.

The A860 8-Channel Power Amplifier is a traditional distribution amplifier designed to be a companion to the streamers. While the B160S is a two-channel amplifier that has the network streaming benefits of BluOS built in, for a compact way to deliver audio content to a zone. The B160S BluOS Streaming Stereo Amplifier is a two-channel amplifier with the network streaming benefits of BluOS built in, for compact delivery to audio content to a zone. With the optional rack accessory, RM160, up to six B160S units can fit into a 3U-high rack space.

Bluesound Professional speakers carry what is essentially a B100S BluOS Network Streamer in each unit, making them among the most versatile pieces in the brand’s portfolio of products. With source selection, playback controls, and grouping all via software, and amplification and DSP inside the speaker cabinet, each speaker becomes an all-in-one solution for audio distribution, completely bypassing the need for a system head in smaller installations.

Featuring a 3.5-inch (89mm) low-frequency driver and a 1-inch (25.4mm) high-frequency driver, the BSP125 is a 25W, efficiently amplified speaker with built-in DSP to allow for equalization and other audio processing. It is also BluOS Enabled, meaning it will connect to network-accessible music sources and communicate with other BluOS devices on the same network. With surprisingly robust response across the frequency range (45Hz–20kHz) for its size and a THD+N rating of 0.003% at full-rated power, the BSP125 is a versatile option for any commercial installation. Available in black or white, the BSP125 can be placed on a shelf or mounted to a ceiling or wall using an optional bracket.

Bluesound Professional products can be controlled with the free BluOS Controller app for Windows and Mac desktops, and for iOS and Android smart devices as well as from many third-party control systems. With an intuitive interface and rich customization options, BluOS Controller offers convenient and nuanced system control.

For hardware control, the CP100 Wall Mount Controller is a low-profile, wall-mounted, illuminated touch-sensitive controller. With a variety of international backboxes and powered by PoE, it is easy to install and connect to a network to control Bluesound Professional devices. The controller can be locked to protect against unintended or unauthorised use.
