Why Startle Music

Startle Music gives retail and hospitality brands the choice, quality and control they need to create their perfect atmosphere. Designed for business use, this professional background music system delivers high-quality audio and a host of convenient features that make it the ideal music solution for busy business owners.

With a multimillion-track music library, over 100 curated playlists and the ability to create your own, Startle Music has all the necessary tools for building a great soundtrack. Weekly updates mean we’re constantly refreshing our music, giving you plenty of choice and flexibility, whatever your industry or preferred genre.

How it works

Startle Music is powered by our multifunctional hardware, the Startle Player. This plugs straight into your network router and speakers to deliver high-quality audio. Instead of just streaming music, our system stores your music locally and your settings in the cloud. This provides a more reliable music solution that won’t falter if your internet fails, and enables automatic updates overnight.

With Startle Music, you can manage your music whenever and wherever you want. You'll have access to an online control panel via desktop, tablet or mobile, so scheduling and making changes to your music is quick and easy. You can even set permissions for your team members, or manage multiple locations from one account to ensure a consistent soundtrack.
