Bang & Olufsen launched BeoPlay S8 subwoofer and speaker set, which is inspired by the BeoLab 14 surround speaker system and aimed to serve as an lower-cost option for instantly enhancing any home audio setup. Described as a “highly flexible and compact stereo system”, S8 has solid sound & stylish curves. The BeoPlay S8 is a 2.1 speaker system – one 1.7-foot-tall subwoofer and a pair of 6-inch-diameter satellite speakers. Despite its compact size, there are 3 powerful class-D amplifiers in here! And they certainly deliver on Wattage – 2 x 140 W for the satellite speakers and 1 x 280 for the subwoofer. Connect to any streaming device or audio source via volume regulated audio output using RCA (phono) plugs or 3.5mm jack – and bring some serious sound to your listening experiences.
The S8 setup offers a variety of placement options, making it flexible enough to fit any home. Two satellite speakers can be hung on the wall or positioned with table stands, while the subwoofer has been specifically designed to sound amazing no matter where you choose to put it. Simply adjust the sound adaption switch to match the position, stand back, and listen as the device adjusts to give you optimal bass in any place.
The BeoPlay S8 is available from Bang & Olufsen retail outlets, the B&O Play online store and selected design and department stores, priced at €1,199 ($1,518).
