Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 iPod/iPad Speaker Dock

661103.jpg

Bang & Olufsen announced the BeoSound 8, its first ever iPod/iPad/iPhone docking station speaker system. The BeoSound 8 defies industry standards as it features a distinct two dimensional design, bold form, and a superior sound quality due to its custom-made conical speakers and high-performance amplifiers. It is directly compatible with the iPad, without having to utilize any extra wires or adapters, ensuring a clean, minimalist design.

BeoSound 8’s light and characteristic design makes it highly flexible in use. It is perfectly suited as a music system not only in a main room, but also in the kitchen, on the patio or even at the summerhouse. BeoSound 8 can be placed on a wall bracket or any flat surface and still deliver fantastic premium quality sound. Additionally, BeoSound 8 has a manual room adaptation switch with 3 positions (i.e. mounted on the wall, placed in a corner or freestanding on a flat surface) which allows it to be placed anywhere without compromising the sound performance. Furthermore, its sealed speaker cabinets, conical shaped speaker units, and custom made digital amplifiers allow for an impressive sonic range from lower bass tones (38 Hz) – uncommon in smaller docking stations – to higher frequencies (20,000 Hz).

Cool and simple to use
BeoSound 8 offers one-step operation and an intuitive functionality, as one can simply dock the device on the top of BeoSound 8 or connect it using the AUX line-in or USB port(s). BeoSound 8 can be controlled on the iPod/iPhone/iPad from the BeoSound 8 bridge, by using the dedicated remote that comes with the product or you can control it with one of Bang & Olufsen’s intelligent remote controls.

BeoSound 8 can also integrate into a home wifi network using the Apple Airport Express, which allows one’s music collection to be conveniently streamed wirelessly from any PC or Mac to BeoSound 8 (Airport Express connects to BeoSound 8 through a line input using a mini to RCA cable).

Magical 2D design and Color Options
BeoSound 8 offers an unconventional form and is available in black and white, with up to 6 different grill colors for all music and design enthusiasts alike.

The cone shaped speakers give BeoSound 8 a magical hovering 2D appearance as it hides the actual depth of the speakers and the feet lift it up giving a light and slim design. In addition, the speakers of BeoSound 8 are outlined by aluminium rings adding a distinct Bang & Olufsen look and feel. With BeoSound 8, Bang & Olufsen has once again proven that it is leading the field of innovation and design.

Price and Availability
BeoSound 8 will arrive in all North American Bang & Olufsen showrooms late November 2010 for $999.

Additionally, Bang & Olufsen will launch a free BeoPlayer application that will offer access to Net Radio and an alarm clock functionality under one streamlined Bang & Olufsen interface. An upgraded application will also be made available for a $19.99 charge and will include over 10,000 internet radio stations, a comprehensive music library browser, and an alarm clock feature that will offer the elegant chime from our BeoTime alarm clock. This application will be available for download from iTunes/Apple e-store by December 2010 and underscores Bang & Olufsen’s dedication to providing the ultimate customer experience.
