  • Is the B&O brand enough to deal with the "big ones"

    The "big ones" like Spotify, Deezer, Tidal and more have of course an interest in selling subscription to the mass as they compete heavily in that ball game. But is Bang & Olufsen or the B&O brand enough to deal with those guys ?? B&O - also with the latest BL90, try to position as design with the ultimate sound and quality - but is B&O loosing this in practical these years. Today, people are confused about music - in the good old days ;-) we had LP's and CD's and

    Hi Chris I am sure you are right - Sonos is the only one at the moment with Deezer Elite - and why not ? The number of customers are huge compare to B&O. But Deezer should also think about their brand linked with B&O - looking at competition as Spotify and Tidal not having this. Lets see what happens in 2016 - I hope B&O management is open this this as this would bring B&O products back on track

    Hi Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the valuable input. This could work...as you say, this needs some app. but the Essence knop is in place today..I have only B&O products - see attached file.. I have been searching to find a switch - like the Samsung - but where the switch could auto sense the signal - in that case there would be no need for an app to control BR Rudi

    Hi again During Christmas I have been thinking about an idea based on your suggestions above. Please see attachment. I need an good input selector that can take both digital and analouge signal and send out digital signal - and be controlled by an app for the iPad. Does anyone have experience in this segment ?? Using this setup, I can 1. Play my CD's in Flac format on the MacMini and send this direct to the BL5 digitally 2. Play from the Sonos Connect box in flac streaming from Deezer Elite 3

    So, gentlements ! What is the conclusion of all this ? In one of my living rooms I have the Beolab 5 and the Essence as source (and now a Sonos box on the line input for Flac files). Maybe it is possible to have this setup in parallels to a digital input. Will the Beolab 5 sense itself and select the source. If I keep the powerlink input and and a digital input from a MacMini (through a M2Tech box) - then I will have the possibility to use the Beolab 5 as a multiroom when I just play "background"

    Difference....depends of many issues, I believe. But, take some of your favourite tracks on CD's...listen to the CD, listen to the same CD from Deezer Premium and finally listen to the CD from Elite. I have done that on several CD's - I can hear the difference - even though my ears now are 54 years old. The dynamic and low frequencies (bass etc) is much better and comes close to the CD quality We all listen to different music genres and value different aspect in the music, so this is probably

    I understand that Deezer Elite is not accesible without an agreement with Deezer. But to my mind, B&O have all the time been into high quality music (and picture) so to support customer paying 10-20 times more than other brand, B&O needs to add this part as well. They could make a deal with Deezer or Spotify (I know the problem with multi user) or even Tidal (Swedish as I believe). Not making any offer to customers is bad. I also understand Sonos is having many more customer than B&O

  • The best from two World ....

    Let me share a part of my new setup - in lack of B&O signing up to Deezer Elite (and having hi-fi quality streaming) I have now changed my setup. My Beolab 5 is powered by an Essence box with a remote volume control. A Sonos Connect box is added to the Line-in and vupti...now I have Deezer Elite streaming in Flac format om the Beolab 5. Just start the Sonos app an select music and control the volume on the Essence remote. The Sonos app is faster and bettter than Beomusic, sorry to say. I had

  • Question how to use BC 2 with BL 5 and digital switch (with Sonos and MacMini)

    Hi, I am still trying to workout the best solution for one of my living rooms. I would like to have the attached setup, but one questions comes up. Using the BeoCenter 2 as "main" center to the Beolab 5, then everything must be fine. Adding a switch in between to get Sonos (with flac files) and my MacMini (with all my CD's) as additional sources - how will the Beolab 5 react to this ? Will the Beolab 5 be able to power up from the Beocenter 2 and then I change source on the switch and
