BeoPlay M5 is great, but expensive
Bang & Olufsen brought its new wireless speaker to the spotlight at CES 2017. The BeoPlay M5 speakers, joined by the BeoPlay family, have a stylish design line similar to the previous models. The loudspeaker, bearing the signature of Cecilie Manz, who previously designed the Beolit 15 and BeoPlay A1, is bouncing in a cylindrical form.
The on-board speaker, which can be controlled from the aluminum touchpad, can radiate 360 degrees. The speaker, which is said to produce sound that will fill a room, is using the fabric materials of the Danish textile design studio Kvadrat as it is in the BeoPlay A6. Alongside with the AirPlay, it supports services such as Spotify Connect, Chromecast, and QPlay 2.0. It comes with a 5-inch woofer, a 1.5 mid-range and three 0.75-inch tweeters. Among the connectivity points are 802.11 a / b / g / n (2.4GHz & 5GHz) and Bluetooth 4.0, and the speaker has two color options, black and gray. BeoPlay M5 with a sales price of 599 euro in Europe is expected to come to the stores soon.
