BeoSound 5 Music matters when it comes to the BeoSound 5


There’s life beyond the iPod, you know. Try as you may to hook up this portable digital music player to your home sound system, and all you get is a small screen menu and loud, but not necessarily crisp, sound. Why settle for less, when we’ve found you this alternative?

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 5 is a modern ‘juke box’ for your home, with which you can enjoy listening to digital music without compromising on sound quality (at a hefty price of HK$49,000). Its 10.4” LCD and aluminium control wheel allows you to ‘flip’ through cover art, and thus, do away with your CD collection forever. The real brain of the device lies in the slick-looking server, BeoMaster 5, which boasts 500GB of storage space. That’s up to 28,000 songs or 1,000 CDs in lossless WMA (or up to 80,000 songs in compressed MP3). While you can playback your songs by album or playlist, there’s the innovative “More Of The Same” feature, which ‘listens’ to the song you’re playing and follows it with others that it thinks matches harmoniously to suit your mood. Oh and did we mention that this baby has internet radio too?

It’s music to your ears.
