hi all im considering buying a used beosound 8 and got a couple of questions:

 

1. is it possible to put a usb-stick in it and play music from it?

 

2. if possible, will ti also recognize music in flac-format or just mp3?

 

3. is there any setting so you can have the songs play in shuffle mode? or will it just play in alphabetical order or order stored on usb-stick?

 

thanks !

You cannot put a usb-stick with music on it. so definitely the rest of your questions are not applicable also.

Beosound 8 is docking music system. A possible option is attached a bluetooth receiver and connect is via RCA of the BS8. Thats the best option you can have. Another is Airport Express, so you can play via Airplay. Sam connection, thru RCA.

Connecting an Esseence 2nd gen (to the line-in) should give you bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify Connect, Google Cast, TuneIn, access to DLNA servers on the network - all within the BeoMusic app....

....and the multiroom option too.

Make the output of the Essence fixed and control the volume with the BS8 remote.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.
