Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 gets full Spotify integration
Bang & Olufsen, the purveyors of fine audio systems, did announce and roll out the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 in the past, but this time around, there is something new about the BeoSound 5, as it has now received full integration with Spotify. This particular integration would see the introduction of yet another feature to the BeoSound 5 system, where its range of digital music would have been expanded even further thanks to Spotify’s massive music catalogue, apart from the owner’s own digitized tracks. If that is not enough, you can always settle for another 14,000 internet radio stations, which should be more than enough to last you through a few lifetimes. Do bear in mind that this particular integration has been built into all new BeoSound 5 units, so if you are gunning for this system, now would be a good time to get it.
Bang & Olufsen’s category manager Theis Moerk, shared, “Bang & Olufsen owners told us they wanted Spotify, and we listened. More and more consumers are choosing to stream their music, and in many markets streamed music outsells CDs. However, low bit rates have kept a lot of music fans on the fence. With Spotify now fully integrated into BeoSound 5, Bang & Olufsen owners have access to over 20 million songs in the best possible streaming quality. The partnership with Spotify is an important step in keeping Bang & Olufsen owners up to date with the growing availability of digital entertainment, and we look forward to further collaboration with Spotify in the future.”
BeoSound 5 would give you complete command of all your music, regardless of where it is stashed, and “central command” would comprise of a single intuitive interface. It seamlessly connects to a plethora of sources, where it will encompass NAS, Airplay, DLNA, A2DP Bluetooth and of course, the latest kid on the block, Spotify. If you are interested, the BeoSound 5 would retail for a whopping $6,324.
