BeoSound Core

It's never been easier to unleash a great sound. Just connect BeoSound Core to any active speaker from Bang & Olufsen and start to play the music.

THE IDEA BEHIND BEOSOUND CORE
BeoSound Core is a discreet,  stowable connection hub for our high-end BeoLab range of speakers and for BeoSound Shape. You can start playing your favourite music on mobile devices, music services or internet radio via this hub. It supports all the modern streaming services, such as Chromecast built-in, Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect and QPlay 2.0 (only in China). It also supports the BeoLink Multiroom function.

If you use the optional Essence remote control device, you can call up all the important functions and music at top quality with one single touch.

BeoSound Core brings your much-loved BeoLab speaker together with all the associated functions to create a modern, networked speaker system that's properly equipped for the future.


DIRECT MUSIC STREAMING ON YOUR BEOLAB SPEAKER
Get more listening pleasure from your BeoLab speakers. BeoSound Core provides access to the latest streaming services, such as Chromecast built-in, Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect and QPlay 2.0 (only in China), as well as those that come via your Smartphone. BeoSound Core also supports the BeoLink Multiroom function for your speaker so that it becomes part of a family of products, either bringing different music to different rooms, or allowing the same melody to ring out throughout the house.


HIGH RESOLUTION MUSIC STREAMING
BeoSound Core plays music back at a high resolution – digital and end-to-end – so that you can experience even the smallest of recording nuances. It provides wireless digital streaming at the highest standard of quality that has ever been available.


The conventional playback quality of CDs only reproduces part of the sound spectrum and suppresses the finest details of the recording. High-resolution sound indicates a broad frequency spectrum and a wide dynamic range, which allows you to experience digital music with all the nuances that were originally included by the artist.


BeoSound Core connects to your BeoLab speakers, and the digital interfaces then transmit the digital end-to-end sound of your preferred content and music services through to the speakers .


IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO RADIO STATIONS AND MUSIC FILES – AT JUST ONE TOUCH
BeoSound Core can connect to the Essence remote control device, a simple, intuitive remote control that's always close at hand. This provides the best solution so that you can break the bounds of technology and gain uncomplicated access to your mobile device and all the music on the Cloud in your own home.


If you include Essence remote control in your set-up, you can start up your favourite internet radio station with just one touch. You can change the volume or select a track or radio station conveniently with the rotating dial – and it's never been easier.


FREQUENT SOFTWARE UPDATES FOR STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY 
The software for BeoSound Core is automatically updated with the latest and best functions over the internet at brief intervals. Even if technology advances to such an extent that you need new hardware, you can simply replace the BeoSound Core and retain your well-loved, long-lasting BeoLab speakers.


THE DESIGN
BeoSound Core is housed in a simple black box so that it can be set up discreetly and practically near to the speaker. This product is smaller and easier to stow than Essence Box.
