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.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
