It has been announced that NAD Electronics’ Classic Series C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC and the Masters Series M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier will receive a highly-anticipated software update that will enable Apple AirPlay 2.

This will allow homeowners to stream audio content from their Apple devices to these NAD models. 

Further to this, a BluOS 2i MDC module has also been released that can be installed into the upgrade slots in the C 368 and C 388 Integrated Amplifiers to add BluOS multiroom streaming and AirPlay 2 functionality.

Officially released yesterday (30th July), customers of these models will be prompted to update their products to version 3.4.20 of BluOS. 

Homeowners are also now able to control playback on these NAD models using Siri voice control. With AirPlay 2, users with additional BluOS- or AirPlay 2-enabled speakers will be able to sync their devices for seamless audio throughout the home. 

Cas Oostvogel, product manager for NAD Electronics, said: “We are proud to be able to offer Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility to our NAD users. 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 C388 Integrated Amplifiers, which were first launched in 2016, can receive a new technology many years after their original purchase.”
