  • Small Box with Big Tower Sound

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    I actually bought all 3 - Big Jambox, Bose Soundlink, and Beolit 12 then test them out for several days. 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.

    If your Beolit 12 doesn't work well with your airplay it's because you have a s*****, and/or outdated router, buy a new one ! This If your Beolit 12 doesn't work well with your airplay it's because you have a s*****, and/or outdated router, buy a new one ! This device works great. It sounds incredible, it looks amazing and it feels great. I only use it with AirPlay and it plays very smooth. Also the setup was so easy and simple with the beo setup app. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Worth every penny and with the new price drop it's even more amazing ! Recommend it to everyone who cares about sound, quality and design !

    It was a toss up between this and the B&W A5 and I took the Beolit 12 home because a) it looks very modern, has impeccable lines, It was a toss up between this and the B&W A5 and I took the Beolit 12 home because a) it looks very modern, has impeccable lines, and b) directly plugs into the wall without a power adapter like the A5.
    At home I had trouble with connecting via wireless (with latest AX in next room), so I plugged it in to LAN. I've got a wired Airport Express in the same room. No drops on the AE, but the Beolit 12 dropped frequently. Sounds very nice—good presence, decent bass— but a bit more directional than I'd like.
    Took it back for an A5 and I'm happy I did.
