Bluesound Professional has introduced its B170S networked streaming stereo amplifier. The B170S is an all-encompassing networked streaming amplifier that satisfies a multitude of commercial audio needs. Features like low-impedance lines out, constant voltage option, energy-efficient amplification technology, and a compact form factor makes the B170S ideal for supporting bulk speaker installations and daisy-chained speaker setups.
The B170S is designed to work with all kinds of installations. High performance audio can be achieved with the low impedance option via 4- or 8-ohm low-impedance outputs. Using the low-impedance outputs is particularly fitting for applications where intelligibility and audio quality are most important. Alternatively, bulk speaker installations like corridors or high-traffic areas can be catered to with the 70/100V constant voltage option that allows for daisy-chained speakers, reducing cable lengths and complexity.
The amplifier section of the B170S offers various power options: 2 x 80 watts into 4/8 ohms, 2 x 100 watts at 70V, or 1 x 100 watts at 100V. Additionally, thermostatic fan cooling and a standby mode consuming only 6 watts of power ensures reliable operation in commercial environments.
The B170S can be mounted vertically or horizontally, allowing it to seamlessly hide under shelves, tables or on walls. Keyhole slots allow for stealthy mounting options closer to where speakers will be installed. Up to six B170S units can be rack mounted into a 3U space with the racking accessory.
Bluesound Professional’s partner music services like SoundMachine, Custom Channels, SiriusXM for Business, Qsic, Tunify, and others are natively integrated and controlled on the B170S using the built-in operating system BluOS. Group multiple zones of audio using the BluOS app and have secure, third-party control of all your audio zones while being able to select legal, commercially licensed music from streaming services.
