BeoSound 5

 

Slap me again! The BeoSound 5 costs how much? At least it confirms that luxury is alive and well.

The company responsible for some of the sexiest audio-visual devices in the world has ably crossed into the digital age, maintaining its spot at the apex of the market with devices that marry style and a no-compromise approach to media quality....

B&O BeoSound 5 review

 

We are deeply impressed with the B&O BeoSound 5: if you can afford it, we envy you

Gorgeous to look at and use ; stunning build quality ; very effective sound for a system of its type

You could, if you wanted, build a better-sounding conventional hi-fi system for this much money – and it’s not cheap, either

Deeply impressive: if you can afford it, we envy you

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5

 

The Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 is the company's latest paradigm shift in how media servers should work, but if you have to ask about the price it's not for you.

Outlook Stylish, fun to use, and just jaw-droppingly awesome, the B&O BeoSound 5 is a talking piece and a functional music system in one. You already knew if you wanted one if you got past "breathtakingly beautiful".

B&O Beosound 5 Still Has A Long Way To Go

 

The new Beosound 5 sound system from Bang & Olufsen has been a long time coming and is primarily designed to move B&O into the world of digital content management and while the system looks the part at $9,200 I think I would prefer a simple iPod touch.

This is a smart looking unit which does extend the B&O family into sound management. It is well built but lacking in several areas. ;

The fact that this system is designed only for right handed consumers shows that B&O have not thought this product out enough as it is faily easy today to design a swivel mount. As for the system there in not much in the software that you will not find...

BeoSound 5

 

Recently acquired the Beosound 4 which cost half as much. This coupled with 2 year old Beosound 9 speakers produces awesome sound. Too bad the Beosound 5 is so expensive....
