Toronto, ONTARIO, CANADA JUNE 13, 2022 – Bluesound, makers of hi-fidelity multi-room streamers and speakers, today announces retail availability of the Bluesound HUB Wireless Audio Source Adapter and Network Pre-amp. This versatile network accessory adds non-BluOS audio sources to the BluOS ecosystem, making turntables, TVs, and CD players accessible to Bluesound players for multi-room playback. The HUB is now available for purchase in North America with products starting to ship to consumers the week of June 20, 2022. Availability in the rest of the world will follow at the end of June and the UK in mid-July. The Bluesound HUB will retail for USD $319 / CAD $419.
The HUB complements an existing Bluesound ecosystem as a network accessory that takes the audio signal from analog or digital sources and transmits them to Bluesound players on the same WiFi network. Users can select the HUB as an input source in the BluOS Controller app before choosing the Bluesound player where the audio will be sent for playback. Up to 5 sources can be connected to the HUB and two streams, 1 analog and 1 digital, can be simultaneously transmitted from the HUB for dual-zone playback.
