Bluesound Digital Multiroom Audio System. The M Series systems are capable of streaming native Blu-ray content, both audio and video, over your home network.
It’s not a real issue as the M will rip the discs to the server by itself. The scenes feature is totally customizable. Holiday Sales Were the Strongest in Years.
