Bang & Olufsen Relaunches BeoSound 5 With Complete Spotify Integration

STRUER, Denmark and DEERFIELD, Ill., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bang & Olufsen announces that Spotify is now fully integrated into its popular BeoSound 5 music system. The integration adds yet another feature to BeoSound 5, 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 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.

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.

"Bang & Olufsen owners told us they wanted Spotify, and we listened," says Bang & Olufsen's category manager Theis Moerk. "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."

"We're thrilled to start streaming with Bang & Olufsen," says Riad Hawa, Spotify's global hardware partnerships manager. "Bang & Olufsen sets the bar high in both acoustic performance and design quality. Combining the BeoSound 5 with Spotify will offer a music experience that truly stands out, with millions of songs in high fidelity right in your own living room."

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 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.
