Questions & Answers

  • Question:

    What are the differences between B-Fi (wi-fi) and B1 (Bluetooth)?

    Answer:
    • B-Fi uses your home Wi-Fi network for multiroom music streaming and stereo pairing, while B1 uses Bluetooth.  
    • B-Fi allows you to name and rename devices, while B1 does not due to limitations of Bluetooth.
    • B-Fi requires the Audioengine Control app for initial setup while no product app is required for B1.

     

  • Question:

    Which has better sound, Audioengine Bluetooth or Wi-Fi?

    Answer:

    Both are capable of high-resolution and high-definition audio and provide the highest quality sound for wireless streaming.

  • Question:

    I have multiple B-Fi's But I only see some of them outside the Audioengine App. Where did they go?

    Answer:

    If you have grouped the speakers for a multi-room setup in the Audioengine app, only the B-Fi that you grouped the speakers into will show as the available destination. If you wish to send to your other speakers independently, ungroup the B-Fi's in the app by pressing and holding on the speaker in the grouping and dragging down and away from the group.

  • Question:

    If B-Fi is used outside the Audioengine app, will multiroom and stereo configurations follow to other music services and apps?

    Answer:

    Yes, while streaming via Airplay.

  • Question:

    I have a MacBook Pro and a Qobuz subscription that I would like to stream to my stereo system. How exactly would I connect from the laptop to the B-Fi?

    Answer:

    Qobuz works great with the B-Fi for lossless CD quality streaming! Once you get your B-Fi setup on your network using the Audioengine app, you will be able to send your Qobuz music to the B-Fi through the Qobuz app on your MacBook Pro, the Qobuz app on your devices, or directly through the Audioengine Control app! Qobuz and other lossless capable streaming services are played back at CD quality, with no compression.

  • Question:

    How many rooms or zones are possible?

    Answer:

    The Audioengine Control app supports a maximum of 12 rooms, however for most homes we recommend 8.

  • Question:

    How can I stream music stored on my Windows computer to the B-FI?

    Answer:

    Windows 10 supports sharing the media on your computer via DLNA.  To set this up, you’ll need to:

    1. Click start and search for "media streaming options".
    2. Turn on media streaming.
    3. Name your media library whatever you’d like after turning it on.
    4. From the Audioengine Control app on your Smartphone or tablet, go to My Music-> Home Music Share, and look for your media library name.

    From here you can play audio stored on your computer to any B-Fi(s) on your network.  Just keep in mind that your computer will need to be powered on.

  • Question:

    What is the wireless connection range for the B-Fi?

    Answer:

    After setup you can stream your music anywhere there is a reliable wireless internet signal.

  • Question:

    Does the B-Fi support gapless playback?

    Answer:

    Gapless playback works great when streaming to the B-Fi as long as the music app you are using supports gapless playback as well, such as Spotify. You would not need to adjust anything with the B-Fi or within the Audioengine B-Fi app.

  • Question:

    Can I use a hotspot as an access point?

    Answer:

    Yes. If your hotspot is listed as a choice in Wi-Fi networks, you can use it as an access point.

  • Question:

    Besides Bluetooth vs WiFi what are the reasons to consider the B-Fi or the B1 over one another?

    Answer:

    Both Audioengine Bluetooth and WiFi-based solutions are capable of delivering very high quality audio! Bluetooth is an extremely convenient way to quickly pair to a speaker for easy wireless playback. WiFi solutions are great for multi-room setups with custom groupings with different music or simultaneous playback to all which can be easily controlled with the B-Fi app.

  • Question:

    Can B-Fi play high resolution music?

    Answer:

    The B-Fi supports lossless playback of CD quality audio, with zero compression. While you can play higher than CD quality audio to the B-Fi through DLNA, UPnP, or high res streaming apps like TIDAL and Qobuz, all audio is transmitted at 16-bit 44.1kHz.

  • Question:

    Does the B-Fi support YouTube Music service?

    Answer:

    The B-Fi doesn’t include a YouTube Music integration into the Audioengine Control App, but YouTube Music will work via Airplay on an Apple Device. So you’d be able to stream YouTube Music to the B-Fi from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer, no problem.

  • Question:

    Can I play locally-stored music?

    Answer:

    Yes. You can play music from your library, a mobile device storage device, USB thumb drive, and portable hard disks and NAS.

  • Question:

    Does the B-Fi receive streamed music from your smartphone, or directly from the Wi-Fi network?

    Answer:

    For music streamed through Audioengine Control App, or from streaming applications built into the Audioengine Control App, the B-Fi streams music directly over your WiFi network. The stream will continue whether your device is taken out of range or turned off altogether.

    Airplay, generally speaking makes a connection between your source device and the B-Fi, through your network. If your device goes out of range of the network, or the application on your source that is playing audio is closed, playback will stop.

  • Question:

    Can a single B-Fi have multiple users?

    Answer:

    Yes, anybody connected to the same network.

  • Question:

    What music sources can be sent to more than one B-Fi simultaneously?

    Answer:

    Any audio source can be used for multiroom playback through your B-Fi(s) when using AirPlay, or when streaming audio via DLNA / UPnP, or using the streaming services integrated into the Audioengine Control App. The B-Fi(s) need only first be configured into groups using the Audioengine Control App.

  • Question:

    Do all Audioengine Speaker Systems work with B-Fi?

    Answer:

    Any Audioengine powered speaker systems that have line-level (RCA or 3.5mm) input connection or digital optical input will work with B-Fi.

  • Question:

    Does sending audio to more than one B-Fi at a time result in a reduction in audio quality?

    Answer:

    Sending audio to multiple B-Fi units at once will not impact the audio quality.

  • Question:

    Does the B-Fi support 5GHz network access points (wireless routers)?

    Answer:

    The B-Fi is a 2.4GHz device but most networks are dual-band, so select 2.4GHz during B-Fi setup.

  • Question:

    What DAC does the B-Fi use, and is there any compression in the wireless transmission?

    Answer:

    The B-Fi uses the ES9023 DAC. As the B-Fi uses your home wi-fi network, it is lossless and no compression is needed.

  • Question:

    Can I use B-Fi connected speakers, alongside Sonos speakers?

    Answer:

    You could use these two systems separately, with their respective apps, and separately through Airplay. Sonos speakers are not able to be integrated into a B-Fi system, though. The Audioengine Connect App is only able to recognize B-FI connected audio systems, and the Sonos App will not recognize B-Fi wireless music streamers. So there wouldn’t be a way to group them together.

  • Question:

    Will my music be interrupted if I lose my Wi-Fi connection?

    Answer:

    Yes. You must be connected to your network for your music to play.

  • Question:

    Can I leave my B-Fi on all the time.

    Answer:

    Yes.

  • Question:

    How do I reset my B-Fi?

    Answer:

    Press and hold the status button on the front panel until you hear the voice prompt.

  • Question:

    Does B-Fi support AirPlay 2?

    Answer:

    We considered Airplay 2, and will continue to keep an eye on it for future products or updates. At present though, the B-Fi includes support for only Airplay.

    While Airplay 2 allows grouping of Airplay 2 devices in the Apple Home app, to allow streaming audio to multiple rooms at once, we've already built out advanced multi-room grouping features through the Audioengine Connect App. And in our implementation, these features not only extend not only to Airplay on iOS and MacOS, but can even be used for non-Apple devices which don't support Airplay or Airplay 2.

  • Question:

    I don’t see my favorite music player in the Audioengine Control app. What can I do?

    Answer:

    One of the great benefits to the B-Fi is that you’re no longer stuck using one product app. Any music player will work for iOS and MacOS via Airplay, as well as DLNA or UPnP streaming options for Android and Windows.

  • Question:

    My music streaming is cutting out. What can I do?

    Answer:

    Try playing music directly on your phone, tablet or from your local library using the same network to check your internet connection.  

    If your internet connection is OK:

    • Check the connections between B-Fi and your stereo system.
    • Use the Audioengine Control app to test signal strength.
    • Restart your source music device and power cycle your B-Fi and stereo.
