Music fans can now directly access and stream Qobuz's high-definition music services through a new partnership with Samsung
London, UK - Sept. 6th, 2014 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today announced a partnership with online music service Qobuz, to make its high-definition music offering available across Samsung's Wireless Audio Multiroom system giving music fans access to more than 18 million songs through the extensive Qobuz music library including a large selection of "Qobuz Studio Masters" titles.
The rapidly evolving audio connectivity market has meant that Samsung and Qobuz can now come together to give music fans a top quality music experience on high-performance devices. The Samsung Multiroom App (available on both Android and iOS), allows users to access and stream Qobuz's high-definition music directly to Samsung's Wireless Audio Multiroom systems - streaming to any room, or to multiple rooms for users with more than one Wireless Audio Multiroom speaker.
Robert King, Vice President, Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said "Until recently, compressed music meant sacrificing sound quality, Samsung and Qobuz are excited to elevate sound quality to the next level by offering music lovers a new and unmatched listening experience that combines high-quality music with innovative audio technology. Samsung and Qobuz are now offering the best of both worlds."
Samsung's Wireless Audio Multiroom products were recently awarded the EISA Award for Best European Multiroom System. The system can be used alone or wirelessly with other Samsung devices; including TVs, Soundbars, Home Entertainment Systems and Blu-ray Players via Wi-Fi to create a powerful multi-room audio system. Controlled from a downloadable app and facilitated through easy plug-and-play installation, the speakers can be easily placed around the house and controlled conveniently from a distance. With NFC functionality, pairing has never been easier, allowing consumers to simply tap their smartphone to the Wireless Audio Multiroom to instantly play music from their mobile device.
Widely used in the past, compressed music usually meant poorer sound quality. Now, Samsung and Qobuz are bringing sound quality to the next level, by offering music lovers an upgraded listening experience that pairs high-quality music content with innovative technology.
