Amsterdam, 2 February 2018: Primephonic, the CD-quality streaming service dedicated to classical music, has agreed to a deal which will see the platform made available on the BluOS operating system this Spring, in both the United Kingdom and United States.
BluOS, developed by Lenbrook International, is the premium high resolution multi-room audio ecosystem that allows enabled devices from NAD, Bluesound, and soon Dali Loudspeakers, to stream from a range of music services. As the latest service to announce compatability, Primephonic will join the likes of Spotify, Tidal and Amazon Music on the platform.
Via the BluOS app, US and UK listeners will be able to stream 16-bit FLAC (CD) quality classical music from one place across one or multiple devices to help deliver the ultimate classical listening experience in the home.
The partnership will also extend the BluOS experience for classical music lovers by integrating Primephonic’s unique metadata system, tailored to the specific needs of the classical music genre.
Thomas Steffens, CEO of Primephonic, commented on the partnership: “Since our launch last year we have been committed to finding as many wonderfully digital ways as possible to listen to classical music, so we are naturally very excited to team up with BluOS. We want to deliver an unbeatable solution and multi-room listening is becoming increasingly pivotal to the way we consume music at home.”
“For BluOS users, we think the Primephonic announcement is an exciting one,” says Andrew Haines, BluOS Product Manager at Lenbrook. “Our user base features a strong contingent of classical music lovers who expect a premium experience. Primephonic, along with the work we are doing to incorporate a richer set of information about the recordings they enjoy, is a perfect blend of what they want.”
Primephonic subscribers will be able to listen via BluOS Enabled players as of Spring 2018, with more details expected to be unveiled at Munich High End Show in Germany.
