Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A8 Air Black Edition - 1292246
Now you can switch from listening to your favorite song on your iPhone or iPad
to a true Bang & Olufsen sound experience – without missing a beat or getting
up from your chair.
The new BeoPlay A8 streams your tunes with Apple AirPlay. 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
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.
BeoPlay A8 builds on the achievements of BeoSound 8, which sold over 50,000
units in its first year and became Bang & Olufsen’s most successful sound system
ever. The two models share the same design, specs and outstanding sound. What
makes BeoPlay A8 even better is the integrated AirPlay wireless connection –
in addition to the removable Apple docking connector.
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.
Expected to be available from ultimo May 2012 in Bang & Olufsen stores, at selected
retail partners, or at the B&O PLAY online store.
- Wall Sound Setting
Use the smart wall bracket and hang BeoPlay A8 on the wall. Select the ‘wall’
setting and the sound performance will be optimized to this position.
- Corner Sound Setting
Getting great sound in a corner can be difficult since walls have a tendency
to “bounce the sound”. But the position switch in BeoPlay A8 will help you.
Set it to 'corner' and the sound performance remains unchanged - namely perfect.
- Free Sound Setting
Use the 'free' position, when BeoPlay A8 is not close to any walls that may
play along, when you turn up the volume.
- Adaptive Bass Linearisation
With Adaptive Bass Linearisation you can feel safe. At extreme peeks in the
music, BeoPlay A8 will automatically turn down the bass and make sure you
always get a great musical experience.
