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.bluos module 300x218 Old NAD Amps Get AirPlay 2 With BluOS Module
