    Hello Hajé,

    Our Players do not have an option to select an play an album at Random.

    Our Bluesound Apps do have an option called "All Songs Random", that places all of your songs into a Playlist, and shuffles them.

    Can you elaborate on your feature request, and what you want it to do?

    I would like to have an option 'Play random album'. This selects an album, plays it and selects an other one, etc. The albums tracks should play in their normal order.
    Thanks for your reaction and i hope my explanation is clear to you. And that you can Build it of course! I like to spend my saturdays beiing suprised by my Own music librairy :-)

    Hello Hajé,

    Thank you for clarifying

    We've taken record of your request and we've added it to a report to the Bluesound Lab for consideration.

    Thanks for #LivingHiFi..

    Hello Bluesound team,

    Is there any progression on implementing playing random album's from a local source like a NAS yet?

    For me not supporting 'random album play' as subscribed by Hajé is the only left with is holding me from changing from my squeezbox and buying a Powernode 2.

    Thanks in advance

    +1 for the "Play random albums from my library" feature for the apps. This is my favorite feature of the Squeezebox devices I have. I miss it a lot when using Spotify, for example. I'm sad to see this has been hanging around for five years with no movement. It can't be that hard to implement, and I say that as a software developer.

    Another +1 from me. There have been multiple discussion threads requesting album shuffle for many years now, and I would like a clear answer why this is not followed up.
    Thanks, Herman

    Another +1. I've also requested this before. Several years ago... nothing happened so I had to keep the Squeezebox. If I knew this I would never had bought the Bluesound.

    +1 for shuffle by album please. I have a big music collection, and use track shuffle quite often to discover tracks I haven't heard for ages. Album shuffle would let me do the same for albums. Thanks

    it is very clear that the programmers of the software are just programmers, and not users of it., or management at NAD does not care or know the way audiophiles user their products   My old Sony CD changer from 15 years ago, had random play of albums,   Why has this request been posted for so long and nobody cares is beyond me.   Is there another brand we can move to?


  • Christian Martin

    Well, already 8 years and this features is not on the Bluesound or the NAD, business must be very good.

    This feature is the closes to what lp's/vinyl/33rpm listener want to enjoy the CD/digital version of there music (probably old people (anything that is not Gen X or Boomer "purchaser") request, Selfie Generations  are more one hit wonder from streaming).

    But if we buy this device it's because we have like 2000 CD's and are annoying by streaming service album there/not there on there service (algorithm adapt to what to dot ask music for).

    Second request: "Also would be great, to have the Lp's filter that ad the echoes vinyl needle produce on a turntable, a vinyl mode, since vinyl revival, it is become trendy!"

    Anyway, since your sale are so good, nobody bother, to improve for an album listening, I guess, I am still dreaming and my Bluesound didn't wake me yet!

    Still good set-up, owner of Vault, node and power node and probably edge node for my kids!

    Best regards All

    Ps, just woke up, and put the needle on the record Album, very satisfactory, to hear the vision of an artist (especially on PinkFloyd), not a streamer playing randomly to fill the silence, that new generation are so scare off!


    Let me explain algorithm, the more people ask for, the upper this thread will go, if we good hit the 1000 request, than, the upgrade will be!

    That's all folks!
