Beolit 12 Portable Music System

World-class audio aficionado Bang & Olufsen launches its new brand B&O PLAY, which highlights a more playful and portable product portfolio. This portable music system is sure to raise the bar for audiophiles. With cutting-edge sound quality; flexible application; and a distinct, compact design, it features Apple’s AirPlay technology, allowing you to play music wirelessly from your iPod, iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC when connected to your wireless network. Designed by Danish designer Cecilie Manz, Beolit 12 is a tribute to Bang & Olufsen’s transistor Beolit radios from the 1960s but offers a superlative portable sound experience. Its 120-watt digital Class D power amplifier system drives two 2-inch tweeters and a 4-inch woofer to deliver powerful, accurate sound performance that comfortably fills a mid-sized room. Its rechargeable battery can charge an iPhone or other connected device and play back music for up to eight hours at normal sound levels. Available in gray; additional colors coming this spring. $799.
