B160S

Networked Streaming Stereo Amplifier

The Bluesound Professional B160S networked streaming stereo amplifier is a complete solution for a commercial music installation. The B160S combines a high-quality stereo amplifier with a BluOS enabled network music player. The B160S’s HybridDigital™ amplifier section provides 2 x 60W of power into 8Ω – plenty for most small/medium spaces and thermostatic fan cooling provides for reliable operation in commercial environments. The amplifier technology is highly energy efficient and also has a standby mode consuming only 6W of power.

The form factor of the B160S allows it to be mounted individually vertically or horizontally on or under shelves or tables or on walls. Up to six B160S units can be mounted side-by-side in a 3U space in a rack using the optional RM160 rack mounting shelf for a compact 12-channel system with six independent or group zones.
