Bang & Olufsen introduces Beoconnect Core streaming box

Bang & Olufsen has launched its Beoconnect Core, a new streaming box that turns legacy B&O speakers into a wireless system. The Beoconnect Core means users can stream music from their favourite app to Bang & Olufsen speakers dating back more than 30 years, connect their B&O turntable or music system to its speakers, or speakers to any TV.

The company explains: “Our aim is to build product icons that can last a lifetime and Beoconnect Core is an important addition to our product offering that enables 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.”

Devised with Cradle-to-Cradle principles in mind, the Beoconnect Core provides several connectivity options, such as Powerlink and USB optimised for the Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 speakers, plus line-in for turntables and other sources. The Core also allows B&O loudspeakers to be connected to third-party screens with HDMI eARC.

It comes shaped with a curved, pearl-blasted aluminium chassis made to absorb heat and a non-conductive cover to ensure full antenna transparency, and can be installed into Beosound Shape using a bracket that can be docked into a Beosound Shape tile.

Available to buy now for £1,000, you can find out more about the Beoconnect Core here.
