Dali Ships BluOS-Enabled Wireless Speaker

Danish speaker maker Dali today announced the availability of its Callisto wireless speaker system, the latest product to embrace the proprietary BluOS wireless streaming platform developed by Canada’s Lenbrook, parent company of the iconic audio brands NAD and PSB Speakers and Bluesound.

A global partnership between the companies was announced last year, but the launch of Callisto marks Dali’s official entry into the BluOS family, which includes nearly 20 products across three brands (NAD, Bluesound, and now Dali).

To take advantage of BluOS technology, the Dali Callisto system must be upgraded with a BluOS NPM-1 module, which allows the system to connect to a home network with access to internet radio stations, music streaming services, and lossless music libraries stored on a computer or mobile device. Any BluOS-enabled device, regardless of brand, can connect wirelessly with up to 64 BluOS-enabled products and systems for synced music playback in one or multiple rooms.

The BluOS platform is designed to can convey “lossless” music over a Wi-Fi network at resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz.

“We know Dali’s fans are passionate about music and we look forward to providing them the means for Hi-Res music discovery and multiroom enjoyment through the BluOS implementation option,” said BluOS product manager Andrew Haines.

Dali’s decision to offer a BluOS option for its Callisto system highlights an opportunity for audiophiles use a wireless audio ecosystem built for performance, said David Cain, Lenbrook’s vice president of sales and commerce. “Lenbrook is in active conversation with other like-minded premium audio partners about offering BluOS as a viable, high-fidelity streaming and multi-room solution in their product roadmaps.”
