NAD Electronics today announced that several of its audio devices will be enabled for Apple AirPlay 2 via a software update.
NAD's Classic Series C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC and its Masters Series M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier will be getting a software update that enables Apple AirPlay 2. This will allow users to stream audio content from iPhone, iPad or Mac.
NAD has also released a BluOS 2I MDC module, which can be installed into upgrade slots in its C 368 and C388 Integrated Amplifiers, adding BluOS multi-room streaming as well as AirPlay 2 functionality.
Starting today, users of these NAD models will be prompted to update to version 3.4.20 of the BluOS software. The update supports streaming of music, podcasts, audiobooks, movies games, YouTube audio and TV sound.
Apple Music users will also gain the ability to control playback using Siri voice commands. Users with additional BluOS Enabled devices or AirPlay 2-enabled speakers will be able to sync their audio throughout the house.
"We are proud to be able to offer Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility to our NAD users," says Cas Oostvogel, Product Manager for NAD Electronics. "We are especially proud to be able to do so with the BluOS 2i MDC module, since AirPlay 2 technology has never before been implemented in a modular solution like this, where owners of older NAD units like the C 368 and C 388 Integrated Amplifiers, which were first launched in 2016, can receive a new technology many years after their original purchase."
