    Fantastic sound, fantastic look

    • Written by from New York

    I recently purchased this stereo from the B&O store near my apartment in New York City and have loved it. I decided to place it on the floor of my living room, but I was told it works great mounted on your wall as well. You can't beat the gorgeous audio, and I control it all from my couch on my iPhone.

    Great design and impressive sound

    • Written by from Copenhagen

    We recently bought this airplay system and after having listened to it for a couple of weeks we've decided to discard our existing stereo system (Denon receiver, cd player and iPod dock together with two bulky Bowers & Wilkins loud speakers). It is not just so much more beautiful to look at, the quality of the sound is also much better. It is very easy to set up and it works perfectly with our different Apple gadgets (iPad, iPhone, MacBook). Another advantage is that you can place it almost anywhere in the room without compromising the quality of the sound (when setting up the system, the output can be adjusted to different positions – corner, wall, free-standing). We've placed it on the floor in our living room, but you could also hang it on the wall.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from New York

    Got this to replace my Geneva Sound XL, and I have another Beoplay A8 in my room.

    Geneva Sound XL vs. A9
    The sound quality from this speaker is amazing, I was expecting much weaker sound from this than my Geneva Sound XL, which has 600Watt and 2 separate sub woofer. However I was amazed, sound is more detail and clear compare to my Geneva Sound. Base was also sufficient and not overpowered.

    A8 vs. A9
    Sound quality wise, this is way better than the Beoplay A8! It really is 3 times better than the A8! I found that the A8 is under-power, lack of base and can distort at times. The A9 fixes all the A8's downfall.

    Only downside is the USB input only support apple devices, i.e. you cannot hock your computer to this speaker via USB. However you could in the Beoplay A8 (I see this as a major downgrade!).

    Android via DLNA works equally well as Airplay although it seems like there is a longer lag!

    amazing speaker that photographs well in a room

    • Written by from Washington

    as a professional wedding photographer i tend to take lots of photos in and around my loft for testing new camera equipment. this thing looks so incredibly awesome in the corner of a room and it also happens to sound the best there too. i get a little more bass when i keep the eq button on open room setting and it's just perfect.

    very expensive but sounds pristine and looks completely unique.

    Elegant design, outstanding performance

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Utterly unique in the marketplace, the A9 produces amazing sound from such a tiny footprint -- and makes a design statement while doing it. We've had ours for almost a year, using it for music and television audio in our living room, and we are hooked. Superb audio response, terrifically full sound, and simply gorgeous.

    Very good Airplay performance and reliability using our Airport Extreme (watch out for microwave ovens between your speaker and access point, though, since it's 2.4GHz-only). Highly recommended.
