Inspired by their transistor radios of old, the BeoLit12 wireless speaker packs the latest technology, including a 120W amp and Apple’s AirPlay standard, into a compact, portable box.
The BeoLit 12 airplay speaker is the first product in their newly announced B&O Play line of products, intended to bring their premium audio and video products to the masses at a price that doesn’t require a second mortgage (you might still need a small loan, however). With an aluminium shell, two 2-inch tweeters and a 4-inch woofer, the BeoLit 12 can connect to AirPlay via Wi-Fi or internet, and also has USB and 3.5 stereo out jacks for versatility.
The battery can provide up to four hours of playback when streaming, or eight hours when a music player is directly connected. The BeoLit 12 will be in stores at the end of January starting at $US800. [Bang and Olufsen]
