Can you buy 2 or more for surround sound, or is there a slight timing delay that would seriously ruin the listening experience?

Would it work with 2 speakers as a stereo setup or with 5 for surround sound?

  • Best Answer:

    You can combine two speakers, and have one right channel and the other left channel.

  • Each BeoPlay A9 system operates as a merged left-right channel speaker. The wireless transmission of the sound to the BeoPlay A9 system is based on the AirPlay protocol. The protocol defines a buffer to be able to deal with network dropouts during high-load network situations. This helps to give you a seamless and high-quality sound experience. With iTunes you can wirelessly stream the same music to BeoPlay A9 systems in different rooms.
