Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A9 Black Edition

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A9 Black Edition

Bang & Olufsen just released the BeoPlay A9 Black Edition, a floorstanding wireless speaker in an all-black color option with dark brown walnut legs. The BeoPlay A9 is a one-point music player that streams through both AirPlay with iOS devices and DLNA with Android devices. The sound system packs a hefty 480 watts digital Class D amplifier system with separate amps for each of the 5 built-in speaker units. Included in this is an imposing 8-inch unit that lays down authoritative and tightly controlled bass through the bass port reflex construction hidden behind the unit.

The BeoPlay A9 sound system was designed to look beautiful from all possible angles, by Øivind Alexander Slaatto, a young award-winning Danish designer. The A9 is also a discrete nod to a point in time where every stereo and speaker had to be shiny black and bulky. But that is also about as retro as the sound system gets – the inside is filled with best-in-class technology. The recent addition of Spotify Connect provides owners on-demand digital access to more than 20 millions songs at the touch of a single button.

Thanks to Bang & Olufsen’s patented Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology BeoPlay A9 delivers accurate and powerful bass at all listening levels. The digital algorithm constantly monitors and adjusts the bass signal to root out distortion and protect the drivers inside. And, with 3 pre-set room-positioning options to choose from, you can easily optimize the sound according to the speaker’s location.

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A9 Black Edition BackBeoPlay A9 both fits in and stands out. Use the wooden legs to place it on the floor – or the wall bracket to mount it on the wall. You can also change the front cover in a snap – and make it match your mood and interior. 7 different front covers and 3 different types of legs are available.

Going forward B&O PLAY has decided to change the selection of wood to reflect the current trends of the market. This means that teak tree will be replaced with walnut tree – and that beech tree will be replaced with maple tree in the future.

The characteristic of walnut is that the heartwood color varies a lot. It ranges from light to yellow/grey/brown to an almost violet colour tone. The structure of the wood makes the tree’s growth rings quite visible, although they are not sharply defined. They are often fluctuant and uneven in both width and flow.

Walnut is a popular choice with those who prefer a darker interior styling. The characteristic of maple is a very white to slightly yellowish and ivory colour. In structure, the growth rings are only slightly visible with a weak brown line. It is a bright wood sort with a Scandinavian look – and maple from Denmark is actually perceived to be the best quality in the world.

Price and Availability
BeoPlay A9 Black Edition is now available for EUR 1,999 / USD 2,699 / DKK 14,999 at Bang & Olufsen stores, and selected design and department stores.
