Bang & Olufsen are innovators in the audio realm and have been announcing some rather interesting products in the last year like the wood panelled Beosound Moment Wireless system (http://luxurylaunches.com/gadgets/bang-olufsen-beosound-moment.php) and others. But to further the wire-free lifestyle of the rich and super rich, the company has announced a new solution to taking your music with you, irrespective of where you are in your home. Enter the BeoLink Multiroom system that is designed to let your music follow you around throughout your home; of course that means you’d require a stupendously large home, but that’s a different argument.
The idea of the BeoLink Multiroom is essentially to convert older B&O music systems scattered across your home, into a single, synchronous set up that would allow you to playback audio seamlessly while traversing through the rooms. Here’s one minor glitch though, according to a report, the systems isn’t quite as “seamless” as expected but does work at the touch of a button either on the remote or a smartphone app. One would actually need to activate the system in each room in order for the music to continue, it’s not an automatic function; but to be fair, it’s really not much in the way of an effort.
Working in tandem with the system, the BeoRemote and BeoMusic App also allow you to switch the entire system to stand-by when you exit your home and link and unlink various devices including B&O HDTVS. Adding and removing components is an easy task and older systems that don’t feature the BeoLink Multiroom function at the get go, would simply need a converter to join the team.
