When it comes to cool-style high-tech products, Bang & Olufsen doesn’t stop to surprise. This time Danish company unveiled a new speaker called the BeoPlay A9, that looks like satelite dish with supersonic proportions.
The BeoPlay A9 is a wireless 2.1 bass reflex loudspeaker system that combines five dedicated speaker units and amps, allowing users to stream sound right to the speaker from any networked iOS device, Mac or PC, outputting 480 watts of power. Other features include a fine-tuned DSP (digital signal processor) algorithm that creates deep ambient tones with its patented Adaptive Bass Linearization technology, and three pre-set sound modes.
“We asked Oivind Slaatto, a young designer who also has a strong interest in music, to create a design that is as free of visual noise as possible, and then had our engineers empower it with truly amazing sound,” said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, VP at B&O PLAY. “The result is a liberating take on acoustic performance with a cleanly graphic look that is intuitively easy to use.”
BeoPlay A9 packs two 3/4-inch tweeters and two 3-inch midrange units, all four driven by separate 80-watt class D amplifiers, to deliver sparkling highs and spaciously defined middle tones. An imposing 8-inch bass unit is powered by 160 watts from its own class D amplifier. It has touch controls and connects to your phone via AirPlay or DLNA.
As far as the colour is concerned, the eye-catching fabric options include silver, white, black, red, green and brown, all of which are interchangeable. This high quality satelite dish speakers will cost you $2,699!
