The BeoPlay A9 by Bang & Olufsen is a powerful sound system first and foremost, but was designed with the appearance of a stylish, yet simplistic addition to your home decor. The A9 features a fine-tuned DSP (digital signal processor) algorithm that delivers surprisingly rich bass with help from the 2.1 bass reflex loudspeaker system that combines five dedicated speakers in-all. The audio experts at B&O have also fitted A9 with Bluetooth and AirPlay wireless connectivity making it compatible with the latest iPhone, iPad and Android devices, which allows for easy manipulation of music and volume all from the palm of your hand.

We asked Oivind Slaatto, a young designer who also has a strong interest in music, to create a design that is as free of visual noise as possible, and then had our engineers empower it with truly amazing sound. The result is a liberating take on acoustic performance with a cleanly graphic look that is intuitively easy to use. -Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, VP at B&O PLAY
