Bluesound Professional – the World’s first modern music ecosystem for commercial spaces.

“Don’t be a purveyor of professionally installed, unprofessional audio systems in commercial spaces”

OneAV’s Mr Audio, Andy Oattes tells us why Bluesound Professional should be your chosen music ecosystem for commercial projects.

Designed primarily with commercial spaces in mind (but also great for any multi-zone audio project!) Bluesound Professional is a convenient, hassle-free ecosystem of hardware and software solutions for networked distributed audio. The range includes rack-mounted amplifiers, streamers, and wall/ceiling-mounted powered speakers to facilitate easy design, installation, setup and use of complete music systems in installations from one zone to large multi-zone facilities.


Many professional integrators are regularly installing audio systems designed for residential settings into commercial spaces and promoting Spotify as the main music source. But not many know that somewhere buried in Spotify’s T&Cs is an agreement to only stream music for personal use. A dedicated commercial music service such as SoundMachine should be used and is easily accessible in Bluesound Pro’s BluOS software.

Other familiar issues that often arise from using residential music systems are an inability to cope with the power demands of larger physical spaces and a lack of balanced audio, therefore more susceptible to loss and distortion. Then there are the obvious issues of unwanted control from customers via Airplay, Bluetooth and other means. It’s not uncommon to see iPads with 3.5mm audio cables, and free control of music selection for staff and their tastes, which may mean you’re not getting the desired ambience you want in your bar, cafe, gym, shop or restaurant! All ultimately feeling rather inelegant, clunky and lacking… dare I say a professionally installed, unprofessional audio system!

Bluesound Pro’s value proposition is key to its appeal over other systems, providing the capabilities of the most expensive high-end brands at a price that is hard to criticise. Bluesound’s Canadian parent company Lenbrook is also home to famous high-quality audio brands NAD and PSB. The development team of audio experts across Lenbrook’s portfolio of brands have managed to ensure that heritage and undeniable pedigree flows through the high-quality circuitry and components inside Bluesound Pro’s product lineup. With the capability of replaying Hi-Res Audio and MQA content, the BluOS distributed audio and music management platform is promoted as “the world’s first modern music distribution ecosystem for commercial spaces.”
Being a big audio guy, I can vouch for the fact that the product sounds amazing!

10 of my favourite Bluesound Professional features:

  • Rack-mounted or local device design, with wall-mounted integrated speakers – for flexibility of installation
  • No power switches – that can then accidentally be switched off
  • +4 dBu instead of home audio -10dbV for correct gain and low noise
  • Fully balanced I/O on pluggable barrier strip for secure installation
  • Password access for secure control of the system – no unwanted access
  • Wall controllers with lock for custom-defined use e.g volume/playlist/zone and easy to reach control
  • Local USB storage and specific commercial music options such as SoundMachine
  • Local analog mic/line and digital outputs and remote triggers and system interrupts and fire muting
  • Flexible and powerful control from third-party control systems for all of today’s market-leading systems. 
  • Lossless music playback of up to 24bit/192kHz to every zone

As you can see, there are a plethora of amazing features built-in to the system. Bluesound Pro is the perfect solution for Integrators who want conflict-free installation, reliable and market-tested solutions, flexible system design, premium audio quality, and dedicated integrator support. 

We would welcome the opportunity to invite you to a webinar to provide you with a more in-depth review by visiting us at www.oneav.co.uk or email us at sales@oneav.co.uk

Deliver perfect mobile phone signals with Cel-Fi

Bring your outside phone signal inside to every corner, with an Ofcom-approved, UK legal solution from Cel-Fi.

We’ve all experienced mobile phone signal blackspots in buildings, frustratedly waved our phones in the air and walked to a window to get bars. Constructions with concrete and steel, basement levels, or rural homes can often suffer from weakened signal coverage inside buildings.

Whilst many other solutions remain illegal, Cel-Fi systems are Ofcom-approved, able to boost the strongest point of signal and repeat it throughout a building. If you get four bars of signal outside, that’s what you’ll have inside the building when using UK legal Cel-Fi products.

A Cel-Fi SOLO smart signal booster can be installed in under 15 minutes.

Cel-Fi SOLO

ONEAV offer pre-configured packages for any of the 4 major networks (O2, EE, Vodaphone and Three) including all required cabling and antennas.

For larger projects, ONEAV’s expert technical support team can help you design and commission a system from start to finish.

Get in touch today to learn more about adding mobile signal boosting to your repertoire.

OneAV & Coronavirus

OneAV is still open and still shipping, but because of coronavirus, we have closed the office.

You can order on our website with delivery directly to you, or site and the delivery will be contact-free. 

The warehouse is operating using just a single member of staff to minimise risk. It will continue to do so as long as couriers and Royal Mail keep working (or the Government advises otherwise).

Our sales + support team are still available via a temporary catch-all email address that we’ve set up – c19@oneav.co.uk. Someone working from home will respond to your query promptly.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this period.

Much obliged,
Everyone at OneAV


Just Add Power and Enado™ – a match made in heaven – but why?

Just Add Power is a cost-effective 4K Ultra HD video-over-IP system with integrated video wall capabilities. Enado™ is a profitable intuitive control and automation solution. Used together to deliver the ultimate viewing experience, users can change any display to any source and select their desired video wall configuration on the fly, whether it be one large image across all the displays, nine independent images, or any combination in between with one simple touch using any web-browser enabled device. That can even be a cost-effective sub £100 device like an Amazon Echo Show.

The J+P platform supports 4K Ultra HD resolutions with no latency over a single Cat 5e cable, HDMI 2.0 devices with HDCP 2.2, HDR, HDR10, and uncompressed lossless multichannel audio formats — including Dolby Atmos— offers built-in video wall functionality for displays installed in portrait and flipped configurations, as well as image push, pull, and pop features. An integrated scaler on the receiver automatically adjusts the picture to fit the screen. Control inputs with RS-232, CEC, and IR are all available.

The J+P & Enado™ demo was extremely popular at ISE and the pairing was described as ‘a match made in heaven’. Chris Cadwallader, Technical Advisor for OneAV tells why they work so well together.

Why do they work well together?

Just Add Power is an IP controlled system whose source to display control is determined by the switching of VLANs present on the PoE switch powering the Just Add Power devices. Enado™ is an affordable, flexible and simple operating system/brain that facilitates superior control through a simple touch screen interface that runs on any web-enabled device, smartphone or tablet.

One of the main methods of control Enado™ offers is IP, making Enado™ ideal for Just Add Power. With Enado™, you can create a button that is capable of doing any amount of commands. Do you want to switch Display X to Source Y? It can do that! Want to switch your video wall (16 devices) to Source Z? It can do that no problem.

Control of Just Add Power’s switching is not the limit here. With a static route comes Layer 3 control. This enables you to control every Just Add Power device individually however you may need. Typically you would use this to send serial commands over IP, change video wall modes and so much more. From my experience with Just Add Power and Enado™, my options have been limitless. Those of you who went to our stand at ISE will have seen the interface we had created and how easy and simple it was to use.

How is it set up?

You can import a file pre-generated by Just Add Power, and this gives you all of the switching commands that you need in order to control your video over IP solution. From there, you can create buttons within the Enado™ system and start assigning these commands to them however you would like to. It’s extremely easy and takes just a few minutes.

What is the new J+P Warp Drive?

J+P recently released the 737POE 3G Warp Engine Transmitter, enabling users to rotate any video signal up to 1/10th of one degree. The 737POE can be added to a currently installed Just Add Power 3G system to rotate any source in the system.  A single 3G Warp Engine Transmitter can build a full Mosaic Video Wall with the ability to show any source in the system! 

Just Add Power has always been able to offer mosaic walls, but the display screens always had to be hung level. Should you wish to tilt a screen, you can rotate the on-screen display live as it happens, making video walls easier than ever.

What interfaces for control can be used?

Enado™ can be used with anything that has a web browser, so your tablet, phone, computer, Echo Show, Smart TV etc. Simply type in or favourite the IP address of the Enado™ and you’ll be given control of your devices. You can even create shortcuts to make it look like an app to your client. Enado™ allows you to view its interface differently for mobile and larger devices which can be customised individually. 

Is it easy?

As briefly touched on before, it’s a simple import file for all of your commands. Then assign your commands to whichever buttons you wish. The Enado™ system can be as simple or as complicated as you would like it to be, but OneAV will always assist you as much as we can.

Where can I learn more about J+P & Enado™?

We have a free webinar series around Enado™ including an episode about how you can integrate Just Add Power. Alternatively, you can arrange a call with any of the technical team to answer any questions you may have. Another option would be to arrange a face-to-face meeting with one of the team, where we’ll come to you at a time convenient to teach you everything you need to know. Remember you’ll also earn points to spend with OneAV on your trade account when you’ve upon completion of your training.

Introducing the OneAV Brand Tour at ISE!

With the launch of our shiny new website and amazing new reward points system, we wanted to give you the chance to earn up to 10,000 points (£100 cash value) to spend with OneAV on future orders. The plan is to help provide you with even more of a reason to visit our partner brands on their stands and experience the range of exceptional products for yourself.

So, how is this going to work? 


When you visit us on our stand (1-N134), you’ll be given a OneAV lanyard with a tour card to take with you to each stand. We have 7 key partner brands that have their own amazing stand space that we want you to visit and experience for yourself: 

  • Vogel’s
  • Bluesound
  • Focal
  • NAD
  • Monitor Audio
  • ProofVision
  • Vivitek

So, all you need to do is visit each stand and learn more about the brand. At each stand you will then be given a sticker to ‘check off’ that brand from your tour card. That sticker is worth 1000 points or £10 of credit which will be added to your OAV account. If you visit all 7 stands and we will give you 10,000 OneAV points or £100 worth of credit to spend with us. If you manage to get to 3 stands, then you’ll receive 3000 points or £30….Think of the exercise as a thank-you from us for taking the time to support OneAV and our partner brands.

We are also setting-up other ways for you to earn reward points at ISE:

  • Take a picture of our stand and post it on social media, tag OneAV and you’ll earn 300 points.
  • Take a video of our stand showing the products and the team for social media, tag OneAV and you’ll earn 500 points.
  • Post on social media which OneAV product/brand stood out the most for you and why, tag OneAV and you’ll earn 300 points.

*Please note that this promotional exercise is specific to UK accounts.
