Who on earth has a plugged in fixed speaker in their bathroom?

I do :-) a M5 to stream my favorite radio or to join a multiroom, It brings color into your morning start!

The M3 will not do the job unfortunately as it has no local sources.

The below shows it has Deezer and TuneIn

Pair a Essence remote and it sorted.

Anyway I love the little speaker I think it covers a gap in the market by giving multiroom in an entry level device.

Ditto.

Also, the M3 is front directional. I wonder if it would be possible for B&O to add stereo pairing later on?

This little ‘speaker’ could be very usefull with WiSA built-in.

Another product, yes - but just a speaker that could easily be used as back-/surround-/height speaker in a multichannel BV setup.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

In its small thick full aluminum case, I see it more than a CX50 (CX100) successor than a BL4000 son...

I would agree nice cheap alternative for rear speakers.

My fault, stopped my reading too early .... so if it has the timer function too (I guess software will be the same than the Mx,Ax), then I could go for it in the Bathroom and move the M5 elsewhere as it is still too "bassy" for a small room.

I’ve just listened to it(Adele) and you could hear it struggling with some of the bass. It’s big brother had no such problems whatsoever.

Though a different product. - it would be interesting to compare this to a BeoPlay S3 soundwise.

By the way — it funny that there is no Spotify Connect support on the M3.

I wonder if it is even possible to join-in from a Spotify Connect experience started on another NL-device?

With regard to the discussion regarding having B&O speakers plugged in a bathroom: take a look at page 13 of the new Bang & Olufsen Magazine issue 6. It shows a woman luxuriating in a bubble bath with an M5 on a ledge right behind and above her head. OMG. This looks like the beginning of a "Six Feet Under" episode!

Yeah, but the M5 is wireless, so if it falls in the bath it will just stop working.

Huh?I'd be very, very much less worried about a line in connection than the very lethal mains cord attached to it!!

Ban boring signatures!

What are you talking about? The M5 is not battery powered. It's connected to an outlet.
