Bang & Olufsen announces that Spotify is now fully integrated into its BeoSound 5 music system. The integration adds yet another feature to BeoSound 5, expanding its range of digital music with Spotify’s massive music catalog in addition to the owner’s own digitized tracks and 14,000 internet radio stations. The integration is built-in to all new BeoSound 5 units; existing BeoSound 5 owners can easily add Spotify with a free online software update.
You can try out your favorite Spotify playlist now, with BeoSound 5 and your choice of Bang & Olufsen speakers, in any Bang & Olufsen store located in markets where Spotify is available.
BeoSound 5 lets you command all of your music, no matter where it’s stored, from one intuitive interface. Seamlessly connecting to a plethora of sources – including NAS, Airplay, DLNA, A2DP Bluetooth and now Spotify – the BeoSound 5’s LCD and scroll wheel makes music enjoyment simple. It supports playback of WMA and FLAC lossless files in addition to mp3 music, and has an on-board storage capacity equivalent to 175,000 tracks, or 10,000 of your favorite CDs. The unique, Bang & Olufsen patented MOTS (More Of the Same) feature analyzes the song that you are listening to – checking for sound, dynamics and rhythmic aspects – to automatically create a playlist from your stored music and take you to places in your music collection that you may have left unexplored for way too long.
The BeoSound 5 is available at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide, priced at $6,324.
