The VAULT 2i equipped with a 2 TB hard drive will let you quickly and easily rip all your CDs in lossless high-resolution or space-saving compressed formats. No computer is required, just access and share your digital music library, and stream it in studio quality to multiple rooms.

Bluesound blends the forces of music and technology together in an ecosystem designed to deliver the best audio quality possible. Bluesound employs various architectures and technologies to achieve this, from advanced proprietary software to end-to-end hi-res audio processing.

With VAULT 2i you can rip all your CDs rapidly in lossless high-resolution formats, space-saving MP3, or both simultaneously. Purchase, download and store high-res tracks on a dedicated ultra-quiet 2TB hard-drive – with no computer needed. Access and share your entire digital music collection and stream it in studio-quality to multiple rooms all over the home.

All Bluesound Gen 2i models are designed to support AirPlay 2 - With AirPlay 2, Gen 2i owners can stream just about any sound from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac to their Bluesound system all in sync. Customers can stream music, books, and podcasts from their favorite apps, or watch videos on their Apple device while streaming the audio through to their Gen 2i Player. Just imagine watching Netflix or YouTube on an iPad while filling the room with premium sound from a Bluesound system.

Discover instant access to millions of songs. Premium high-res music services like TIDAL®, Spotify® and Qobuz® – as well as virtually all other popular music services and internet radio stations that are already built-in

AirPlay 2 also gives users more options for control, including using Siri for voice assistance. Once you add your Gen 2i Player to the Apple Home App on your iPhone or iPad, Apple Music subscribers can use their iOS device or HomePod to say things like "Hey Siri, play smooth jazz in the Living Room" or "Hey Siri, turn it up in the Kitchen"

Gen 2i contains Bluesound's most advanced take on Bluetooth to date - two-way Bluetooth, featuring both Receive and Transmit functionality. Receive capability allows users to wirelessly stream from their device to a Bluesound Player just like they're used to doing with Gen 2. The Transmit capability means the user can now use their Bluesound Gen 2i Player as a source, sending what they are listening to via Bluetooth to a pair of wireless headphones.

While Bluesound has improved the Bluetooth connectivity in Gen 2i, engineers also made sure that audio quality improvements are part of the Gen 2i Bluetooth story. The advanced Qualcomm CSR8675 chip used in these new products also supports aptX HD Bluetooth wireless audio. aptX HD is an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit audio over Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. With the ability to support streams up to 24bit/48kHz, a customer streaming from an aptX HD compatible device to a Gen 2i Player is actually able to listen to better-than-CD quality, wirelessly.
