Product Information

  • Overview

    BeoPlay A8 extends the functionality of the award-winning BeoSound 8 by adding the wireless streaming technology AirPlay, and by giving you the option of using or removing the Apple docking connector. BeoPlay A8 comes with a dock, which can easily be removed, if you do not wish to dock and charge your device on the sound system. Adapting the sound performance to BeoPlay A8’s location in the room further enhances the listening experience. You control the music with your iPhone and iPad.

We're in our 50's and wanted a small but powerful music system that would AirPlay. We needed help from B&O to set up the wireless as the instructions are a little difficult to follow. The sound is incredible. We've owned other wireless systems before, but this system is far superior. Definitely a BUY.

    Whilst the crisp notes get lost in an outside environment (and I've tried the A8 outside), for my office (inside 4 walls), notes a Whilst the crisp notes get lost in an outside environment (and I've tried the A8 outside), for my office (inside 4 walls), notes are crisp, loud and you can feel them on your skin when the volume is jacked up.

    The unit also doubles as a dock, I have mine attached to the wall just above my desk so I can also use it for hands free calling - just ensure you have the ring volume turned down, the first time I received a call I nearly fell off my chair - the ring volume was up and is amplified through the A8...I think the neighbours thought they had an incoming call!
