Monitor Audio uses BluOS for its move into multi-room streaming

UK-based speaker company Monitor Audio and its hi-fi sister brand, Roksan, will adopt the BluOS high-resolution multi-room audio streaming platform for their forthcoming products.

The move marks Monitor Audio’s debut in the growing multi-room streaming category and has come about following a collaboration between the brands and Lenbrook International, the owner and developer of BluOS.

BluOS is a proprietary, brand-agnostic platform, which means that any BluOS-enabled product connected to the same wi-fi network can share music libraries and playlists, regardless of the brand of speaker or audio component.

Said Andrew Flatt, Monitor Audio’s chairman and chief executive: “Our development team explored all of the available options for wireless multi-room audio solutions that premier loudspeaker companies must be reviewing in this marketplace. After a full review, we’ve decided to adopt the BluOS platform. It’s purpose-built for discerning audio enthusiasts and thereby fits with our own core values.

“Integrating the BluOS multi-room music management experience with our own audio performance and design values will only add to the desirability and satisfaction of our products for our existing and future customers.”
