Hello everyone, I am actually using the Beolink app installed on my iPhone to control My B&O devices as: Beovision 7, Beosound 5 and Beosound 9000, plus some Beolab 2000/3500 in secundary rooms (I even have installed a MLGW).

This app has some limits (no logo display on internet radio, no sound adjust bass/treble), but it works properly.

Recently have been released by B&O two new app: first "Beolink 2" (that should be an evolution of "Beolink"), then Bang and Olufsen (White icon).

The first one (Beolink 2) works on elementary commands, such as on/off, but doesn't show the records's covers, while the app "Bang and Olufsen" doesn't work at all, as it can not find any device in my house.

Does somebody have any experience with these apps, who could help me?

The Bang and Olufsen App only supports new generation network link products.

To support your product set you would need to a BeoLink Converter NL/ML and have a piece of new kit.

In you case this would be a waste of money imho.

I will check out BeoLink2 !

I am using both Beolink and Beolink 2 (see https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/28283.aspx as an example). They are of different design but generally have the similar functionality. Both have its benefits and drawbacks. It looks like B&O supports both versions, but do not have resources to brush-up any of apps. Indeed, I cannot see covers in Beolink 2 and there's an issue with start-stop of the N.Music (it explained in the link above).

I would say I cannot rely neither on Beolink nor Beolink 2. I personally think this has something with NIH syndrome. (a.k.a. Fatal Flaw :) )

Instead, I found the beauty of Beo6 remote setup flexibility, so I believe this is the way to go for me at least for existing setup in couple with BLGW (BV7 + BS5 + BL3500 + Lutron etc)

Hello, you are right; above all after the last update of some days ago; this app has been improved!

Now is possible to see the cd covers, and the refresh on the screen is much more quick.

Hope I can even see name and logo of n. radio.

See you

hello Alexei, thank you for your reply:

The app Beolink 2 has been updated some days ago and now is much better! Now is possible to see the cd covers in n.music, and the refresh is very quick!

I still don't know if is possible to see name and logo of n.radio, anyway I'm thinking to use this app from now on.

See you

Have just updated it and... There is still no button to pause/stop the sound while listening the BeoSound5 :((

One still needs either to switch to another source or to standby the system.

I would prefer if I choose the N.Music, then I go to the corresponding page, choosing what I want to hear and then press play and start enjoying the sound. Now it immediately starts to play last played song (which may be totally inappropriate now) and there are no way to stop it.

Yes, the update improved N.MUSIC and N.RADIO compared to the previous version. The PUC commands of the video sources are still missing, with the exception of MENU, GUIDE and EXIT.
