We can all become attached to our belongings but with technology progressing faster than ever it is easy for some of your best loved products to become out dated, if you have a trusted stereo system that has been at the heart of every party the last thing you want to do is replace it due to its connection options.
The TIBO Bond 2 can be added to your existing stereo system to the Hi-Fi, capable of playing wirelessly streamed music in high resolution from both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices. It is very easy to set up, just connect the Bond 2 to the Wi-Fi network and it is ready to use, the small and lightweight box can be tucked out of the way and won’t distract you from the overall beauty of your original set up.
The only connection required between the Bond 2 and your Hi-Fi is the included 3.5mm jack cable or the 3.5mm to RCA phono interconnect, any Bang & Olufsen Powerlink speakers can be directly connected to the Bond 2 via the 8 pin DIN L/R for a low cost option to use B&O active speakers as part of a TIBO multiroom set up. Any active speakers / computer speakers / powered speakers can be connected to the TIBO Bond 2 via the 3.5 mm Line out. The TIBO Bond 2 supports audio streaming from smartphones, tablets and PC for music services over your Wi-Fi network.
The TIBO app is available for both iOS and Android mobile devices and includes more features such as digital internet radio with pre-sets for quick connection to your favourite radio stations from all over the World. The app can be used to playback music from Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Napster, TuneIn, IHeartRadio and more, it can stream one piece of music to any TIBO Smart Audio product and stream different music to another or you can play the same source across the whole home all within the TIBO app.
