Firstly, it’s important to make sure that the product software is updated to Version 1.6.2500 which has started to be rolled out on the 25th of June. You will also need to update the app to version V3.15 which is available as of the 5th of July. As with previous app updates you always have the possibility to “force” the update by visiting the app store.
One updated, open the Bang & Olufsen app and select the relevant speaker, select the option for the “Sound Settings” and then “Create Stereo Pairing”.
The app will search the network and give you the option to select the Second speaker. The Second speaker must be the same product as the Primary speaker, as cross product Stereo Pairing is not available at this stage, and may not be a feature Bang & Olufsen decide to implement in the future.
Once stereo pairing is complete, one acts as the Primary speaker and the other as the Secondary speaker. All the sources (streaming and physical) are connected and handled by the Primary speaker, which transmits the sound to the Secondary. In this way there is perfect sound synchronization between the two speakers.
This simple and seamless set up and wireless connecting experience through the Bang & Olufsen app is just one of many benefits of Stereo Pairing.
Having two identical speakers paired in stereo sound provides a multidimensional experience with a wide and deep soundstage, giving your music a new sense of scale.
It also gives the listener access to exceptional music quality, as the recording artist intended. By enabling High Resolution audio connectivity through lossless High Resolution at 24bits/48kHz capability, you will be hearing rich and intricate detail, beautifully separated and spread throughout the room.
Lastly, and most importantly to an uninterrupted experience, is the reliable connection in place between the speakers. Bang & Olufsen have implemented intelligent band steering which automatically ensures separation of 2.4 and 5Ghz WiFi vs wireless audio signals.
