British audio brand NAD has announced the arrival of Apple’s AirPlay 2 streaming to its BluOS powered devices, as well as a new upgrade module for older amplifiers.

A BluOS software update (version 3.4.20) gives the company’s Classic Series C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC and the Masters Series M10 BluOS Streaming Amplifier support for Airplay 2.

NAD has also released the BluOS 2i MDC module, which can be installed into the upgrade slots of its C368 and C388 amplifiers first released in 2016.

The module gives users access to BluOS multi-room streaming as well as Airplay 2.

“We are especially proud to be able to [offer AirPlay 2] with the BluOS 2i MDC module, since AirPlay 2 technology has never before been implemented in a modular solution like this,” said NAD Electronics product manager Cas Oostvogel.

Mr Oostvogel said the module meant owners of older amplifiers could receive a new technology many years after their purchase.

Users can now also use Siri voice commands to control Apple Music playback on their devices.

NAD Electronics was founded in the UK in 1972 but is now owned by the Canadian Lenbrook Group, owners of Bluesound.
