The new BeoPlay A8 sound system, from Bang & Olufsen’s B&O PLAY, extends the functionality of the best-selling BeoSound 8 by adding Apple AirPlay to connect your iPhone or iPad to a flexible world of premium sound – instantly and wirelessly.
Now you can switch from listening to your favourite song on your iPhone or iPad to a true Bang & Olufsen sound experience – without missing a beat or getting up from your chair. When you walk into the room with your iPhone or iPad, BeoPlay 8 recognizes your device and asks if you really wouldn’t prefer listening to your music through its balanced set of dynamic two-way speakers and formidable Class D amplifiers. Talk about leading questions…
BeoPlay A8 has the power and acoustic authority to let your music shine. It has the portability to turn any kitchen or summer cottage into a party zone! And its connectivity is so seamless that your only question will be which song to play next.
Designed by David Lewis Designers, BeoPlay A8 exudes classic Bang & Olufsen form. Its simple geometry joins two circular speakers that seem to float above a rectangular aluminium bridge containing the amplifiers, control dial and optional dock connector. The speakers’ flat fronts and conical casings graciously conceal their volume, critical to producing the startlingly true sound for such a compact device.
Adapting the sound mode to BeoPlay A8’s location in the room further enhances the listening experience. A simple switch lets users choose between wall, corner or freestanding positions. Users control the music with a dedicated remote or their iPhone and iPad. BeoPlay A8 will be available in either black or white.
So, when is your next pool party?
