Gibson Innovations, who now owns Philips, has just announced the release of the Philips BM5, the first product on the new Izzy multi-room platform, designed to guarantee that using multi-room music is as simple as possible.

The Izzy BM5 promises the easy connection of Bluetooth with the robust networking and audio quality of Wi-Fi all at the push of a single button.

Just connect to one speaker via Bluetooth, and Izzylink will do the rest – no Wi-Fi router connection or passwords required. Izzy will automatically find and connect to all Izzy products in the home, so you can stream throughout, from room-to-room, with rich, clear and room-filling sound.

Connecting at the touch of a button, these speakers offer all the playback options you’ll ever need while offering a seamless user experience from any smartphone or tablet.

The compact multi-room Philips Izzy BM5 speaker has a simple user interface, attractive design and is available in two different colours.

Further products featuring the Izzylink technology will follow including the BM50 CD+ flat micro allowing consumers to steam radio and CD through their other Izzy speakers.

The Philips Izzy BM5 is priced at £99.99 and is now available from Amazon in black or white, as well as Harvey Norman (Ireland) & Expert (Ireland) and later in October from QVC, Argos, Maplin and AO.com.
