I bought a bunch of white ones in the UK from an electrical retailer to match my white players. A 5 meter one was less than £3 and work perfectly.
I bought white ones to match as well, surprising that Bluesound designers ignored that aesthetic design choice.

BluOS 3.4.13 June 11, 2019

The release notes state: New networking manager that monitors player's IP addresses.

I hope it helps troubleshoot network issues.

Re: pulse 2 outer case

While none of my Bluesound units exhibit this issue, other rubber coated items I've owned have. There is a phenomenon known as 'rubber rot' or 'rubber rust', from what I understand it's a form of oxidation caused by UV exposure and heat that results in rubber stickiness. https://www.polymersolutions...

Re: Stands for Bluesound Flex

I don't have direct experience with these but a cursory search on amazon shows several candidates that should connect to the mounting screw on the flex. https://www.amazon.ca/Mounting-Dream-Management-compatibility-MD5402/dp/B07D14BNV5?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duc12-20&linkCode=...

Re: BS Feedback

I've got an old 2012 iPad Mini running iOS 9.3.5 that still sees and controls all my BluOS devices.
Just tested an old iPhone 5s I have in a drawer that works as well.

Are you happy with your Nad ampflier?
I really love the C 368 amp/dac. Transparent sound out of pure blackness. I've owned 5 or 6 NAD's and never had an issue with any of them. 3150, 7150, 325 BEE, T 743, T755.

I'd like the M10 but it only has 1 set of speaker terminals.

?Or is only an online service? I’ll stick to my claims.
All major record labels are supporting MQA. Huge catalogues are being mastered for MQA, Sony, Universal, Warner Brothers all will have MQA catalogues.

Re: Tidal vs cd and MQA albums

I can hear the flames coming... Bring it on. No flames here. I do think that higher sample and bit rates *can* result in superior sound. To my ears 24/192 is better than 16/44.1 in most cases. I own several master recordings (non-MQA) at higher sample rates than red book and they sound better. I do...

Re: Bluesound can't handle mesh points?

As another data point, I also have a NAD 368 with the MDC module (version 2 if that's relevant). Initially had it wired with a Powerline adapter that worked well, no issues with Tidal, Radio Paradise or my NAS-based library. I recently connected a WiFi extender to the Powerline adapter and set the 3...
