UK-based Speaker company Monitor Audio and its sister brand Roksan  have announced their entry to the world of multiroom streaming audio by teaming up with Lenbrook International’s BluOS. And while there’s no new product to discuss now, the news signals the intent to make BluOS the foundation Monitor Audio and Roksan branded products going forward.

Andrew Flatt, Monitor Audio’s chairman & CEO said “Our development team explored all of the available options for wireless multi-room audio solutions that premier loudspeaker companies must be reviewing in this marketplace. “After a full review, we’ve decided to adopt the BluOS platform. It’s purpose built for discerning audio enthusiasts and thereby fits with our own core values. Integrating the BluOS multi-room music management experience with our own audio performance and design values will only add to the desirability and satisfaction of our products for our existing and future customers.”

With this news, BluOS truly becomes a multi-pronged ecosystem where you can buy and use products from Monitor Audio, Roksan, NAD, DALI and Bluesound together seamlessly. This includes streaming music from multiple online services as well as from storage on a local network. There is a wide variety of hardware already available running the platform.

“Monitor Audio is a perfect partner brand to add into the BluOS ecosystem since they believe, as we do, that high resolution audio matters,” said Gordon Simmonds, CEO of Lenbrook International. “Monitor Audio is a global brand and brings solid distribution partnerships fully capable of delivering the BluOS success factors to the discriminating audiophiles and audio enthusiast that love music and want premium audio performance.”

While it'll be interesting to see what sort of products from Monitor Audio and Roksan gain multiroom capability, for now we'll have to wait to find out. However, given the focus that BluOS puts on fidelity, and the fact that both Monitor Audio plus Roksan sell high-performance gear, you can expect that what comes out of this partnership will be aimed squarely at audio enthusiasts who demand quality but want convenience.
