Bluesound Arrives in Japan

Award-winning hi-res multi-room family of audiophile-grade stereo components and speakers available for sale starting Aug. 21, 2019

BLUESOUND™, a leading developer and manufacturer of wireless multi-room music systems, today announced that its award-winning line of products will be available for sale in Japan starting Aug. 21, 2019. The brand will be distributed by PDN Inc. of Yokohama. The initial market launch will include Bluesound’s NODE 2i Wireless Music Streamer, POWERNODE 2i Wireless Music Streaming Amplifier, VAULT 2i Network Streamer, CD-Ripper and Music Library, PULSE 2i Premium Wireless Streaming Speaker, PULSE MINI 2i Compact Wireless Streaming Speaker, and the FLEX 2i Portable Wireless Streaming Speaker.

“Japan has a strong community of audiophiles and music lovers so we are excited to introduce Bluesound to consumers there,” says Matthew Simmonds, product manager at Bluesound. “We are fortunate to have PDN as our partners in the country given their expertise in consumer electronics and look forward to working with them to realize the full potential of the brand in Japan.”

Kazuyuki Nakatsubo, president of PDN, echoed Simmonds’ optimism for Bluesound in Japan, saying, “The Japanese love music and love great audio. Also, Japan is just starting to embrace streaming music and technologies like MQA, so we think this is perfect timing for Bluesound to enter the market.”

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a technology that can take full-resolution studio master tracks and encode them into files small enough to stream or fit onto standard CDs. Bluesound has the largest range of products within a single brand and some of the most affordable products capable of decoding MQA files. Not only does music encoded in MQA retain its native studio master resolution, but the music is also verified by the record labels, engineers or rights holders to be the original studio master recordings, giving audiophiles unique access to the way their favorite music was intended to be heard.
