BeoSound 8 iPod dock

Manufactured: 2010 - 2014
Colours: White, Black and coloured loudspeaker covers

B&O shoots down the Zeppelin

A late entry into the market but maybe the best sounding, the Beosound 8 benefits from the active speaker technology that B&O has championed for many years. Class D amplification is used for the two way loudspeakers and a placement switch is present which allows free standing, wall or corner settings.

The dock connection allows iPods, iPhones or iPads to be used and the provision of a line in connection allows other devices to attach.

In addition, a mini USB socket allows the customer to connect either a PC or Mac or an Airport Express to allow music to be played from their computer. A special Application written for the iPhone will be available which allows the music library to be browsed and also gives the BeoSound 8 both Alarm Clock functions and Net radio capabilities.

A wall bracket is available or the Beosound 8 can be used as a table top set.

Initially the speaker covers will be either black or white but Blue. Purple , Green and yellow covers will soon be available.

Control will either be via the iPod or with the Beosound 8 remote, which is aluminium. The set is also controllable with the Beo4,5 or 6.

The BeoSound 8 came in two 'generations' - the first being the regular BeoSound 8 with the old iPhone 20-pin connector, then the BeoPlay A8 (the 'A' standing for 'Airplay') which had no connector, but you could add a simple push-fit 'Apple Lightning Connector' for later Apple products if required.
