Beoconnect Core makes legacy Bang & Olufsen products wireless

Bang & Olufsen has announced that Beoconnect Core, a new streaming box, can turn legacy Bang & Olufsen speakers into a wireless speaker system. With Beoconnect Core, users can stream music from their favourite app to Bang & Olufsen’s speakers dating back over 30 years, they can connect their Bang & Olufsen turntable or music system to its speakers, as well as connect its speakers to any TV.

“Our aim is to build product icons that can last a lifetime and Beoconnect Core is an important addition to our product offering, enabling us to deliver on this longevity promise. Beoconnect Core connects our past with our future and comes with our replaceable Mozart streaming module that can easily be upgraded to the newest technology,” says Michael Henriksson, Vice President of Product Marketing at Bang & Olufsen. 

He continues, “This means that the products that our customers love can be used for years to come and continue to provide memorable moments.”

Devised with Cradle-to-Cradle principles in mind, Beoconnect Core’s design embodies Bang & Olufsen’s commitment to extending the lifetime of its products. It does so through easy upgradeability, long-term serviceability as well as the replaceable Mozart streaming module to ensure that it can continue to carry Bang & Olufsen’s products into the future with the latest technology.

Beoconnect Core provides several connectivity options, such as Powerlink and USB optimised for the Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 speakers and line-in for turntables, alongside other sources. More than this, Beoconnect Core allows Bang & Olufsen speakers to be connected to third-party screens with HDMI eARC for immersive cinematic moments amplified with Bang & Olufsen sound fidelity, says the company.

With a gently curved, pearl-blasted aluminium chassis made to absorb heat and a non-conductive cover to ensure full antenna transparency, Beoconnect Core says its compact design is made to fit any room. Furthermore, it can be installed into Beosound Shape using a bracket that can be docked into a Beosound Shape tile.
