Great Looks, Great Sound
When you hear “Bang & Olufsen” what comes to mind? I am willing to bet “stylish”, “high-performance”, maybe “pricey.” B&O has been making some of the most reliable high-end a/v products for just under 90 years. Never one to get caught behind the times, they launched their B&O PLAY line as stand-alone products designed to fit into our more mobile a/v world.
The newest addition to the line proves to make the B&O family proud. The BeoPlay A9 offers quality sound and sophisticated design. Built for wireless or wired connectivity use wi-fi or Ethernet and Apple Airplay or DLNA or go old school and use the mini jack or phono connector. Since control happens on your music device there presents no need for buttons and bells. Simply wave your hand over the top sensor to control volume. A9 design is obviously key to its appeal. Let it stand on its 3 screw-in legs or mount is on the wall. And though it comes in white, optional covers in 5 colors help it fit your décor. Performance wise, do not fret. The bass reflex design paired with the woofer, mids and tweeters will fill your life with soothing sounds. Looks and performance together have won the A9 some prestigious honors too: 2013 iF product design and CES Innovations Awards. If this look fits your life then treat yourself. The A9 is available for £1699 or $2,699 so save your pounds, dollars or what not. But for those with the right environment the A9 seems a perfect solution.
