  • Re: Last chance before moving away from BeoSound 5

    Guys thanks everyone who helped with this.. I can't believe that one week ago , I was about to get rid of my system due to a sales guy willing to share wrong information in order to make me upgrade. I ended up getting the Chromecast Audio and connect it to a Behringer Model ufo202 which connects to one of the spare USBs in the back of the BeoMaster. Works like a charm and I cannot tell any difference in sound quality (so hoping there's no degradation in performance). The next steps are:

    So I took your advice and bought a Chromecast audio today from RadioShack. The problem is that the auxiliary end of the video sound is a USB . How did you go around this? Did you use the Behringer UFO ? I just ordered it online based on what I looked up. Also , my USB port in the back is being used so where can I plug it? It seems that there are spare USB ports on the beomaster but the manual said these are for service only.

    Hi folks, Appreciate the fast responses. I have a BeoSound5 that is connected to a BeoMaster and BeoLabs 3 speakers. I also have integrated wall speakers throughout the house as well as eyes in every room. Looking at the forum, it seems that the chromecast may be the cheaper solution but I don't see where I can plug it in. You mentioned that there's lin to the BeoSound? I cannot find that at all. See the back of my Beo master: http://imgur.com/a/cvU98 http://imgur.com/a/6pWSV What am I missing

  • Re: Spotify connect player for BS5

    I am dealing with this right now... the B&O rep came to my house and confirmed that B&O will not update their support to the Spotify app and admitted about all the bugs they have. For example, Spotify Playlists no longer work on the Beosound5. I tried your approach but unfortunately, my BeoMaster isn't connecting to BeoConnect - need to debug that one first

    Where do you plug the Chromecast dongle though? Here's a picture of the back of my BeoMaster device and I can't see any place for an Aux in: http://imgur.com/a/cvU98 http://imgur.com/a/6pWSV again apologies in advance if my questions sound too stupid

    Thanks !! I 'll look it up! He suggested that I rip out pretty much everything except the BeoLabs 3 speakers that I have and install the new Essence system (he said I cannot combine this system with my current system Beosound 5 or the current eyes that I have)

  • Last chance before moving away from BeoSound 5

    Hey guys, I just joined this forum and the information here and the community is great! I bought a condo that has an existing BeoSystem 5, BeoLab3 speakers, integrated wall speakers, as well as the IR eyes all over the place. The sound quality is AMAZING however the system doesn't work very well for my needs. Here is what I am trying to accomplish: 1- It's must for me to be able to stream from Spotify and currently the system doesn't allow it 2- It's a BIG plus to be able to integrate

  • Re: Beosound 5 Spotify and link

    Hi folks, first time here. I have an existing Beosound 5 and am trying to find a way to be able to stream Spotify directly from my phone as the Spotify app on the BeoSound hasn't been working well after the latest Spotify updates. Is this possible via Airport Express? Did anyone try it? The B&O rep just left my house and he's trying to make me upgrade and pay an extra 5k as this is the only solution he can think of.. something tells me that's not right ... Any help here is greatly
