If you’ve ever thought about having a bumpin’ sound system when hanging out at the park, Bang & Olufsen has answered your prayers. Turning a Sunday afternoon picnic into a high-end affair with the simple, yet reliable, designs of B&O’s audio – their new Beo Play system makes you think twice about what’s packed for lunch.
If you thought portable speakers meant lugging around a boom box on your shoulder, the Beolit 12 Airplay is the 21st Century version to that ‘80s thug. A picnic basket shaped BeoSound 8 system, complete with handle and storage (namely, cord storage), the Beolit 12 Airplay is the first in Bang & Olufsen’s new Beo Play line.
While the device has got beauty, Bang & Olufsen didn’t become the world’s best selling audio brand for its aesthetics – the Beolit 12 Airplay is staggering for its compact size but generous sound quality, emasculating every other portable stereo system in history. With an eight hour battery life and Apple AirPlay technology support, today’s modern users can tune into their favorite Pandora station or wirelessly stream their iTunes from an iPad.
Starting at $799 at Bang & Olufsen showroom locations, the standout sound system will come in yellow, blue and light gray spring 2012.
