Why reinvent the wheel? Or more to the point, why would hardware manufacturers like Cyrus Audio spend time and money developing a streaming platform when they can plug and play a proven solution?
Cyrus have obviously answered, why not. From the press release:
“Music streaming remains complex with the wide variety and rapidly changing list of services and features that are demanded by the modern music consumer. We realized that being part of a well-established and class-leading ecosystem provided the best option for both our customers and dealers to minimize this complexity. As such, we always found ourselves coming back to BluOS.” says Nicholas Clarke, Managing Director of Cyrus Audio.
Lenbrook International’s BluOS delivers high resolution multi-room audio and supports Roon, Tidal, Qobuz, Amazon HD, and more as well as playback from locally stored music with a friendly and easy to use interface.
What’s more, BluOS allows for single app control of products across manufacturers, so you can mix and match any BluOS-equipped gear. Nice.
Cyrus Audio, based in Cambridgeshire, England, has been at the forefront of the British high-end audio scene for nearly 40 years. Having launched the original Cyrus One amplifier back in 1984, it quickly established itself in the domestic market, and it has been designing and manufacturing awarded audio products ever since. Cyrus remains one of the few independent British brands, with their range of integrated amps, CD players, power amps and power supplies continuing to be manufactured in the UK.
There’s no word, yet, on when we’ll see the first BluOS-endowed Cyrus products but let’s hope the wait is not too long.
