    Hi Dave

    Like most IoT Smart Products, Bluesound requires Multicast enabled. This includes Bluesound Professional.
    Work with your Corporate IT Group to setup a network for your Bluesound Professional environment and speak with your Bluesound Distributor about how.

    Thanks Tony. Do you know who would be the distributor for my area? Juneau, Alaska 99801. I ordered a test speaker from Crutchfield. Thank you.

    If you bought from Crutchfield you have a Blueosund Player, not a Bluesound Professional Player - that being said you will still have the same problem. Speak to your local IT Group to allow multicast on your network segment.

    Due to the reliance on Multi-cast and our network not permitting it, our IT department is recommending PoE speakers.

    Looking at these, they seem to be more for PA/Voice announcements than playing background music. 

    I have reached out to Bluesound Professional but have not heard back. I will try calling next week.
