B&O PLAY Delivers iPhone 5 Compatible Music System

September 14, 2012
With the flexibility offered by the exchangeable connector module of Bang & Olufsen's BeoPlay A8, the music system is now able to cater to the new iPhone 5.

BeoPlay A8 allows users to completely remove the connector module for a clean look if the primary use is wireless. Wireless connection via Apple AirPlay is simple, and docking any iPod, iPhone or iPad on top of the system delivers an integrated music system that can be controlled with the accompanying remote control.

This flexibility offers the user backward and forward compatibility that is particularly useful in the many households with a mix of devices, the company says.

All existing and new customers of BeoPlay A8 will be offered the new dock connector free of charge through the "A8 dock upgrade program." Users can register their email on beoplay.com/A8/dock-upgrade to be notified when more details are available on the dock upgrade program.

BeoPlay A8 is designed to optimize the sound to three different locations – wall, corner or freestanding.

BeoPlay A8 is available in black or white, and is available at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide, at Apple stores in Europe and the U.S., at select design stores, and online at store.beoplay.com.
