High-Res Audio's march toward the mainstream of custom install continues with the news that BluOS developer Lenbrook International is developing a two-way driver that allows the Bluesound hi-res distributed audio system to integrate with Elan's API. Scheduled to launch later this year, Elan will soon become the sixth control system supported by BluOS. Lenbrook currently offers drivers for Control4, Crestron, URC, RTI, and Push.

An early beta driver has been made available to allow the BluOS team to start engaging with interested Elan dealers as part of the BluOS/Elan driver development program, before a fully functional two-way driver debuts.

“An Elan driver has been a popular request from our dealer and installer community,” explains Andrew Haines, BluOS Product Manager. “We believe that every great custom installation project needs a comprehensive hi-res audio distribution system that works seamlessly with the central control system, and are excited to give ELAN installers the option to use BluOS for that purpose.”

BluOS combines an advanced hardware architecture with audiophile sound quality, and serves individual listeners, as well as well as streaming to many rooms. Both ‘Enabled’ and ‘Ready’ products cover traditional hi-fi product offerings to custom rack-mounted multi-zone amplifiers.

The BluOS beta driver is available through the Elan dealer/support portal at nadelectronics.com, or bluesound.com. Elan is available through Indigo Distribution.
