BluOS™ Music Management
Unlike other solutions that rely on UPnP, or are simply repackaged PCs, the CI 580 features Bluesound’s proprietary BluOS operating system. BluOS supports many popular music services with full playback of 24-bit high-res music at sampling rates up to 192kHz. A BluOS Controller App is available for smartphone, tablet and desktop and allows you to access, control and stream music playlists to multiple BluOS-enabled zones in the home using simple touch-screen commands.
Lag-free Multi-Zone Streaming
The CI 580 can be integrated into a BluOS connected home, and deliver blazing-fast music streams to any zone you select. By focusing on how to improve musical performance while providing a seamless network music experience, the CI 580 ensures that there are no skips or delays – even when streaming and controlling music from your smartphone or tablet. Analogue and digital inputs are also available to add a cable box and other non-network sources, and make them available and selectable in every zone. The CI 580 also includes a system interrupt feature to allow for doorbells and fire alarms to be heard.
