Bluesound’s new HUB, network accessory connects to both analogue and digital audio sources for multi-room streaming.
Add a Bluesound HUB to any non-BluOS enabled audio source and transmit music to one or many Bluesound players around the home. Audio sources like a turntable or CD player instantly become network-connected and are new sources from which your Bluesound system can play music. It is even possible to stream vinyl wirelessly via ths new device.
Its integrated multi inputs on the back panel include: HDMI eARC, Coaxial, Digital Optical, Stereo Analogue, and a moving magnet Phono stage. Each HUB manages one source, and up to four (4) HUBs can be added to a single network.
BluOS enables audio sources to be added simply using the BluOS Controller app setup wizard and controls a whole multi-room system from a smartphone, tablet or computer.
With a 1U rack height, and 1/3rd rack width, external USB-C connected power supply, the HUB can mounted with four different orientation options using its two keyhole mounting slots.
The HUB’s built-in audiophile-grade MM phono stage preamp brings audio from your turntable to any Bluesound player for whole-home turntable streaming. The HUB acts like a networked low noise, wide-bandwidth phono pre-amp, delivering spectacular audio quality for vinyl enjoyment in any or every room of a home at hi-fidelity.
