Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 Adds Spotify

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5

Bang & Olufsen today announced that Spotify is now fully integrated into their 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 digitalized tracks and 14,000 internet radio stations. The integration is built-in to all new BeoSound 5 units; in line with Bang & Olufsen’s dedication to continuing customer service, existing BeoSound 5 owners can easily add Spotify with a free online software update. However, usage of the Spotify feature on BeoSound 5 will require a $9.99/month Spotify Premium subscription.

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 favourite 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.

Spotify digital music service gives you on-demand access to over 20 million tracks that are it easier than ever to discover, manage and share music with your friends.

Price and Availability
The B&O BeoSound 5 is available at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide, priced at $6,324.
