Performance amplifier manufacturer Peachtree Audio has partnered with Lenbrook International, the owner and developer of the BluOS high-resolution multi-room platform, to bring the BluOS streaming platform to upcoming Peachtree Audio products.
“We have looked seriously at various options to enter the growing multi-room audio category,” says Andrew Clark, Peachtree Audio’s President. “After some initial attempts along the way, a full review of the platforms available brought us to the decision to adopt the BluOS platform. It was clear that BluOS and Peachtree share the same values of high-resolution performance audio. The richness of the BluOS experience, including the plethora of integrations and support for different audio sources, was far beyond what other platforms could offer.”
“Peachtree Audio’s decision process reaffirms our investment into this platform and our goal to offer BluOS as a choice for discerning audio brands looking for an efficient way to adapt to shifting consumer behaviours and technology standards,” adds Gordon Simmonds, CEO of Lenbrook International. “We want hi-res multiroom audio to be accessible to the broadest range of audiophiles and music lovers possible. Bringing a unique brand like Peachtree Audio with their modern, digitally savvy fan base into the BluOS ecosystem helps us to do just that.”
BluOS is a proprietary but 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. There is a growing list of hardware partners that offer both traditional hi-fi and modern wireless products. BluOS manages stored and cloud music sources and playback, with support for high-resolution audio streams up to 24/192, and integrates with popular streaming music services like Tidal, Spotify, and Deezer, as well as offers support for FLAC, WAV, MQA, and other high resolution formats and codecs.
Peachtree Audio joins other hardware partners including NAD, Monitor Audio and Dali who have embedded BluOS as their streaming platform.
