Apple AirPlay 2 Arrives July 30, 2019, to NAD Electronics

NAD's C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC, M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier, and BluOS 2i MDC Compatible units will support Apple's AirPlay 2 technology

NAD Electronics, a leading manufacturer of premium home audio and video products, today announced that its Classic Series C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC and the Masters Series M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier will receive a much-anticipated software update that will enable Apple AirPlay 2, allowing users to stream audio content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac to these NAD models. Additionally, the company has released a BluOS 2i MDC module that can be installed into the upgrade slots in the C 368 and C 388 Integrated Amplifiers to add BluOS multi-room streaming and AirPlay 2 functionality to those devices.

Starting July 30, 2019, customers of these models will be prompted to update to version 3.4.20 of BluOS, the onboard award-winning, proprietary hi-res multiroom platform. Once the update is complete, AirPlay 2 will be active and users can then stream music services, podcasts, audiobooks, movies, games, YouTube audio, TV sound and stored music from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

The integration also gives Apple Music listeners the ability to control playback on these NAD models using Siri voice control. With AirPlay 2, customers with additional BluOS-enabled devices or AirPlay 2-enabled speakers will be able to enjoy their favorite audio throughout their house – in perfect sync.

“We are proud to be able to offer Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility to our NAD users,” says Cas Oostvogel, Product Manager for NAD Electronics. “And 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.”

With AirPlay 2, the NAD C 658, C 368, C 388, and Masters M 10 will become ideal solutions for Apple users looking for premium sound quality and seamless multi-room convenience.​
