Danish manufacturer of audio products Bang & Olufsen have unveiled a simple and graceful one-touch sound system at the Consumers Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas these days. Dubbed BeoSound Essence, the new sound system brings your favorite music to you with a single touch of finger. This simple solution offers freedom from complications of accessing music from cloud-based services and connecting phones and tablets to the sound system. It’s as simple as clicking a light switch.
BeoSound Essence consists of two components: a BeoSound Essence Remote which can be mounted on the wall or can be placed on a table, and a hideaway box which can be placed near to the speakers. You can play music directly through the integrated AirPlay, DLNA streaming, Spotify Connect, QPlay and internet radio or wirelessly from your smartphone, computer or tablet. The new BeoMusic App brings endless music collections to your fingertips. You can access thousands of global internet radio stations and can save your favorites selected songs directly on the BeoSound Essence. This simple sound system is currently on display at the CES 2014 and will be available for sale this Spring at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide. The expected price of the BeoSound Essence sound system consisting of a wall-mounted remote and hide-away box is about $995.
