The Bluesound BSP500 Network Streaming Speaker is designed specifically for use in either indoor or outdoor commercial installations.

This unit is powered by Power over Ethernet(PoE) allowing a one-wire connection to the speaker for both power and audio. The player in the BSP500 is based on the established BluOS platform and is capable of playing and distributing content from local network storage as well as from a large number of streaming services, including some specifically designed for commercial use, such as

As well as stand-alone use, it is possible to use a pair of BSP500 speakers in stereo configuration and multiple BSP500’s in a room in either mono or stereo configurations.

Use of the BSP500 in a larger BluOS system is also possible, allowing for grouping into user-definable groups of whatever size is required with other BSP500 units and/or any other connected Bluesound Professional players, amplified players or network speakers on the network in an installation.

An integral bracket allows for wall mounting with 90 degrees of swivel and 170 degrees of rotation possible.
