Does anyone know what kind of speaker it could be?

Brigantinus:

My dealer is not very happy with the sound, he even didn't want to give a demonstration. And after a demonstration i can understand him. You can compare the sound with a radio clock (i think it is designed for that kind of use in the bedroom). If you have the space A6 ist much better.

In my ears definitely no "clock radio".

I was actually impressed.

I did not like the finish of the top plate, however.

completely agree, nice to have a decent range to chose from.....was just doing a side by side of my A9 and BS2 (i dont have an A6)...very different animals, the A9 is a much bigger sound - yes both have plenty of bass, but setting that aside, the A9 to me is very much worth the extra 350-400 pounds, much more detailed and open ....guess all depends on need i guess.....wouldnt be that happy with a BS2 in my bedroom, where i do some proper listening, while the A9 does a fab job there......and conversely the BS2 is excellent for my (smaller) home office.........re BS1 vs BS2, when i listened to them both, there is clearly a difference, though i expected it to be bigger, but in the end, i didn't need portability, and for the extra money i thought the BS2 was better value, and in the end a better sounding speaker.......

I like the spec of the BS2 but not sure I like the look as much as the BS1, not hear it yet

I know I don't enjoy the sound of the A6 to much Bass, I find Beoplay stuff very heavy on laggy bass

A little to much bass, thats my thought also from the M5. Could it come from the difference in the enclosure between the BSs and Play products, aluminium versus hard plastic. The Kvadrat wool is muting also a lot of high freq. Wonder how it sounds without.

to my surprise, there is, at least to me, no remarkable difference

I think it may be audience, play might be aimed at the younger generation who may enjoy the beats style music full of bass and rumble.

For my kitchen I need a simple speaker with plenty of sound when needed without sounding to bass when listening to normal music.

does anybody knows if there is a correct pictogram for the m5 yet, when used in multiroom? Or should I aim for an bs1/2 to have correct pictograms (like a9/a6)

 

thanks

I think I prefer the look of the BS2, personally. But I just like the portability of the BS1.

Mind you, showed a mate the new BS1 yesterday and he was distinctly unimpressed with the design, sound or anything! He asked why spent £1000 on a portable device with limited capacity - starting to think he has a point!

Maybe the BS2 is actually better value for what you get, performance-wise.

The A6 isn't too bassy for me Seanie? I've just configured mine so it's set as "corner", plus you can change the bass in the BeoSetup app.

Hi, 

I bought the Beoplay M5 for use in my bathroom. But I have the problem, that I always need the Beoplay App to start a source. The M5 doesn't remember the last source. 

Only if my Beosound Moment plays music, it is simple to join with just on tap on the top.

Erm, the BS1 is now £1250 at my dealer. Was £995 when I bought it on 31 Dec.

Sorry, but £1250 is mentality a small portable speaker. BS2 is better priced at £1495.

Dealer couldn't get their M5 to work either!

I can't get the Beoplay app to work with it....Only the new Beosound app....Which doesn't have the room adjustment features. :(

Is it correct that M5 has no built in sources as e.g A6 has?

So I can not only press the top and play the latest source?

I can only join an exiting source played on another NL device?

That would rule it out as speaker in my bedroom. I just want to tap it to start Tunein, or have it to start using timer.
