  • Small Box with Big Tower Sound

I ended up returned the B I actually bought all 3 - Big Jambox, Bose Soundlink, and Beolit 12 then test them out for several days. I ended up returned the Bose and Jambox. Beolit is by far the best quality among all 3... I mean by FAR. This little box can match up with any low/mid range book shelf speaker. Very nice high, mid and bass. Bose has some wave bass but blurry mid and high while Jambox has good mid and high but lack of bass. Also, when you crank up the volume, bose and jambox started to distort but Beolit remain good. If quality is all your care and able to afford additional bucks, BEOLIT is the one. If price drops to $599, i will give 5 stars

  • AirPlay Not Ready From Apple But Great Quality From B&O

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not ready for AirPlay from an iPod touch or iPhone 4S; Sporadic connection and rather disappointing performance, to say the least.

Although, the direct hardwire option sounds good from such a small and portable package.

    Pricy, but if you want portability, style, SOUND QUALITY, then go for it.

B&O has always been synonymous with g This small music device delivers very nice sound, but the Airplay works like the wind blows. B&O has always been synonymous with good quality – but not this time, a music device at this price level should not have any problems with Airplay which is one of the reasons for choosing this device. Find something else...

    This is truly an elegant piece of industrial design and of course amazing sound (what else could you expect from B&O).

    It's a This is truly an elegant piece of industrial design and of course amazing sound (what else could you expect from B&O).

    It's a BIT tricky to connect the Beolit 12 to the wireless network. I found that B&O FAQ "how do I set up Beolit 12 for use with Airplay" description far more useful than the "Quick guide" you get together with the software APP.

    NOTE: Read and follow the description word by word :-)

    (I have a Iphone 4, Ipad first gen and my MacBook Pro connected to my Beolit 12 and it works fine even though the software is optimized for iphone 5).
