Overview

Introducing the Bluesound HUB. This highly versatile network accessory connects directly to a variety of audio sources and brings them into the BluOS ecosystem, allowing you to stream virtually any source, anywhere.

This is one for the music lovers. The HUB connects analog and digital audio devices to the BluOS ecosystem for networked streaming, allowing you to listen to any music source in the house without being limited by wires and physical proximity. You can connect the HUB to the network with dual-band Wi-Fi or wired Gigabit ethernet. Powered by a USB-C connection, its high-quality, moving magnet phono pre-amp, and low noise, wide-bandwidth design means that you can stream recordings from your vinyl collection wirelessly without sacrificing playback quality.

COMPACT, INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

The HUB is designed to seamlessly blend into any environment with its compact shape. 1U rack height and 1/3 rack width makes for a clean system design. Four-way keyhole mounting slots allow for four different orientation options and easy cable management.

MULTIPLE SOURCE INPUTS

The HUB is compatible with nearly any audio input, including HDMI ARC for audio, Coax, Digital Optical and Stereo Analog, so you have a wealth of options when it comes to connecting music sources to the BluOS network.

EASY SETUP, EASY CONTROL

Each HUB can manage two sources simultaneously (one analog, one digital) and you can add up to four HUBs to a single network using the simple setup wizard in the BluOS App. Easily control all your speakers and sources through the BluOS App on your smartphone, tablet or desktop.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

The HUB’s networked moving magnet phono pre-amp delivers uncompromised audio quality for your turntable. Choose between dual-band Wi-Fi or a wired Gigabit ethernet connection for a stable network audio performance.

POWERED BY USB-C

A universal USB-C plug and play connection makes powering the HUB easy and efficient. With only a small external power supply needed, the HUB has more space for dedicated audio inputs, increasing its usability and versatility while creating more opportunities for easy network source sharing.
