Description of Issue

Hi - I have 3 zones in my house:

If I run on KEF or BW speakers separately or grouped, no problems.
I have narrowed the media loading slowly to the Bluesound speakers. If I include them in a grouping, I get the error. If I reboot those speakers, it corrects it for a while. If I remove the Bluesound from the grouping, no problems.

Is this a Bluesound problem or something I can fix?
Any advice would be appreciated.


Hi @Russ_Seitz,

If I understand your post correctly, you have a grouped Zone with two Bluesound Flex 2i units? Are your BlueSound units on the most recent firmware? If so, please see here: NAD/Bluesound Grouped Zones out of sync, stopping playing, and/or skipping tracks [Investigating]

A recent BluOS update correlates to when these symptoms started appearing for users. We’re investigating internally and with our Partners team and will follow up once we know more.
