Available as a digital or analogue output, the CI 580 will easily fit into many other existing distributed audio systems. Accessed through the BluOS Controller app, or one of the many supported CI control systems, multiple CI 580s can be used in conjunction with BluOS to provide up to 64 zones, with each zone having the capability to be grouped together in perfect sync, or play individual streams in different zones simultaneously. With support for locally stored libraries and some of the most popular music streaming services, BluOS integrates all your music sources into a single, easy-to-browse user interface. Integrated with Crestron, Control4 and RTI, the CI 580 is also fully compatible with other BluOS Enabled devices, including select NAD products and those from sister brand, Bluesound.
