    The BLC NL/ML doesn’t have any in-built sources.  It can play (with attached speakers) or pass-through NL and ML sources and anything connected to its “line-in”.

    Therefore, to get streaming to your ML you either need a NL device or a streamer hooked to the BLC’s line-in.  I’d recommend getting a 2nd hand BeoPlay M3 and put it in a bathroom or some other room that currently doesn’t have music and can live without hi-fidelity.  If you have no need for another speaker anywhere in your house, just stick it in a cabinet.

    In this way, your M3 can be the source for B&O Radio and Deezer.  You can control it with the B&O app and play it on any of your ML equipment.  If you don’t want to listen to your m3, set the default sound level to 0 or mute it.  You can also setup the BLC so that unused Beo4 buttons can be mapped to the M3.  For example, “CD” (since it doesn’t look like you have a CD player) can be mapped to B&O radio on the m3 and sending CD to your BS3500 will automatically start everything required to listen to it.  You can skip to the next/prev station/Deezer song using the Beo4 arrow keys (similar to the BeoLink PC).

    I do this (mute NL device and listen through BLC to BS9000 + BL1) quite frequently.  It’s better than driving it strictly with your phone (for example as would be the case with Bluetooth) because you can use your phone for other things (like talking on it) and it doesn’t impact the music.

    You cannot distribute Spotify because of licensing restrictions. Not sure about any other streaming services, but Deezer definitely works.
