Can play from hdd Blu-ray iso or from dlna

Asked by: Dagraoui
Hi, Thank you for your question. Some formats may not be supported on our BDS 280S, but normal Bluerays should not be a problem (original content). You can play files over DLNA and we cannot say if .iso files works, but if you are buying from our website you have 30 days return right, which means you can try out these features and see if that works for you.

Sind die Lautsprecher nebst Subwoofer inklusive?

Asked by: AndrewX
Es handelt sich nur um den BDS 280S - dementsprechend ist kein 2.1 Lautsprechersystem mit Subwoofer im Umfang enthalten.

Was ist der Unterschied zum BDS 280 ?

Asked by: HasK
Hallo. Vielen Dank f&uuml;r Ihre Anfrage. Der BDS 280S ist ein neueres Produkt und somit bringt auch Verbesserungen in verschiedene Bereiche. Der BDS 280S hat im Gegenteil zum BDS 280 ein eingebauter Spotify Modul und dies erlaubt die Spotify Connect Feature zu funktionieren. Der BDS 280S spart mehr Energie als sein Vorg&auml;nger und hat auch ein schnelleren Prozessor und Speicher. F&uuml;r weitere Fragen stehen wir Ihnen gerne unter customer.support@harman.com zur Verf&uuml;gung.
