B&O Play Beolit 12 Airplay Wireless Speaker System
Top-notch AV fiddlers Bang & Olufsen have unveilied a new brand recently called B&O Play. The new brand is not going to be a poor man’s B&O (sorry!), instead a range of products which integrate with consumer electronics and take design inspiration from art, fashion and furniture.
So this, the first offering from B&O Play, not surprisingly looks a bit like a toaster. It’s not though, it’s a high-end portable wireless speaker system. Running Apple’s proprietary Airplay standard this one is only for the iPhone/iPad users of the world, but surely that’s everybody by now.
Inside that shiny exterior is a 120 watt amplifier, 2 tweeters and one 4 inch subwoofer. It also has a built-in power supply and rechargeable batteries for music on the go. Looks lovely and I’m sure it will sound fantastic because it’s by B&O – but that fact will probably also mean I can’t afford one.
