BluOS Coming to DALI Multi-room Speakers
Danish speaker company DALI Loudspeakers are teaming up with BluOS to offer a multi-room platform as an extension of its upcoming wireless speaker solution. This marks DALI’s first step into the growing multi-room streaming space.
“There is a growing list and wide variety of wireless multi-room audio solutions that loudspeaker companies can choose to develop on,” stated Lars Worre, DALI’s Managing Director. “Our team reviewed the options and our performance values led us to the BluOS platform, which has earned an enviable reputation as a world leader in this space. For DALI this is a strong pathway for our future roadmap and it provides increased flexibility for discerning audio customers around the world.”
DALI points to BluOS being largely a brand-agnostic platform, enabling any other products on the same WiFi to share music libraries and playlists, regardless of the brand of speaker or audio component. With the addition of DALI as a hardware partner, audiophiles will be able to choose from a variety of traditional hi-fi and modern wireless products from DALI Speakers, NAD Electronics, and Bluesound, to create a wireless whole home audio system that suits their lifestyles, “without compromising on audio quality.”
“DALI is a highly respected company with 34 years of unwavering dedication to its pursuit of audio performance,” commented Gordon Simmonds, CEO of Lenbrook Corp, the company leading the BluOS development program. “Given our roots in high fidelity audio, we simply will not allow computer technology companies to convince users that compressed audio is true hi-fi when we know it is not true hi-fi. Therefore, DALI’s decision to join the BluOS ecosystem is another important signal to the world that convenient and modern access to high-resolution audio matters and BluOS is the platform of choice for this ambitious task.”
