The Scandinavian manufacturer Bang & Olufsen (B&O) has delivered unique product concepts that have earned it a loyal following that appreciates its sleek industrial designs and implementation of state-of-the-art technologies. Denmark-based company presented a newly updated BeoSound 5 music system with Spotify, digital music service that enables users to stream music off the internet.
The integration adds yet another feature to BeoSound5, expanding its range of digital music with Spotify’s massive music catalogue in addition to the owner’s own digitalised tracks and 14,000 internet radio stations. The BeoSound 5 allow owners to stream up to 320 Kbps tunes from Spotify.
B&O supports the MP3, WMA and FLAC file formats, and through its own storage users can store as many as 10,000 CDs or 175,000 tracks. The unique MOTS feature analyses 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 has a 500GB hard drive for storage of digital music files, packs a LCD screen and a scroll wheel, and is priced at $5,900. You can try out your favourite 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.
