Beocreate – How to start with the B&O software

The Beocreate 4 channel amplifier can do a lot of things:

  • It can run standalone as a digital amplifier or it can be connected to a Raspberry Pi for Ethernet/WiFi connectivity
  • You can use it as a standard amplifier or run highly complex DSP programs on it
  • You can even connect additional peripheral components to it.

However, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to start using it. Therefore, we have created a very small distribution that includes some features that many people use:

  • Airport support via Shairplay
  • Bluetooth speaker via ALSA bluetooth (with Raspberry Pi or Raspberry Zero-W)
  • Spotify connect via Raspotify (requires Spotify premium subscription)

You can download it here: Beocreate Downloads.

If you’re using a Windows PC, you need to install Apple’s Bonjour services first. This is needed as Windows does not include the service to discover the Beocreate system. Otherwise the Setup won’t find your system.

You’re almost finished. No, point your browser to¬†http://www.bang-olufsen.com/recreate/setup/ and finish the configuration of your active speaker system.
