JANUARY 18, 2022 – TORONTO, CANADA – Cyrus Audio, the iconic British brand of audiophile electronics and Lenbrook International, the owner and developer of the market-leading BluOS high-resolution multi-room platform, announced a global partnership to bring the BluOS streaming platform into upcoming Cyrus Audio products.
“Music streaming remains complex with the wide variety and rapidly changing list of services and features that are demanded by the modern music consumer. We realised that being part of a well-established and class-leading ecosystem provided the best option for both our customers and dealers to minimise this complexity. As such, we always found ourselves coming back to BluOS. Throughout our conversations, Lenbrook made clear their strong commitment to providing all customers a premium user experience, combined with access to the best of the hi-res music streaming services. That aligns so perfectly with the Cyrus brand values that it became a rather straightforward decision for us,” says Nicholas Clarke, Managing Director of Cyrus Audio. “Our team is naturally excited as we go forward, planning the latest expansion of the Cyrus Audio product range.”
“Our goal with BluOS continues to be being highly selective about the brands we add to the platform since it is so important that the shared ecosystem model be represented by totally like-minded and committed partners,” explains Gordon Simmonds, CEO of Lenbrook International. “Cyrus Audio is one of those well aligned brands that the Lenbrook team has long admired. We’re pleased they have come on board to share our BluOS high res music vision again reaffirming the significant investment we continue to make into this platform.”
BluOS is an award-winning proprietary, but brand-agnostic platform meaning that any BluOS Enabled product connected to the same Wi-Fi network can share music libraries and playlists, regardless of the brand of speaker or audio component. Found in products that range from amplifiers through to powered speakers and rack-mounted installed audio, BluOS Enabled products satisfy a wide range of use cases and applications, making it the most versatile hi-res multi-room streaming audio platform available on the market today.
