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.

More details from a trusted source:

13x18cm cylindershaped 360 sound. multiroom speaker in textile finish. Like A6 textile. No battery.

12cm subwoofer and 5 treble speakers placed round the unit and one midrange speaker.

Approximately 40 watt ice power.

Soundwise like an A6 little brother.

This will look like a Libratone Zipp... Sad

Only 40 watt? A1 is rated 2x30W and A6 is 240W...

This is approximately the size of a stack of 4 BeoPlay A1. I'm really very curious to see it and hear how it performs and if it is placement dependent (for the basses). I like very much the fact that it has no battery.

M5 or BS2...

It is still confidential.

Some dealers however, have gotten a couple of the M5 (in different colours).

Launch is supposed to be in the early days of January - so no pics from me ;-(

If you are familiar with the way the A6 or the A9 works, you'll know how the M5 works.

Pricetag in DK is 4.495 kr.

Whether one will prefer the M5 or the BS1 (or maybe 2), will be a matter of taste and style of living, I guess.

It fits perfectly into the A6/A9 family.

 

P.S. As I have been thinking of why it is named with an  M, I have come to the conclusion, that they probably will start

to have a M series (for multiroom) in the B&O Play line along with the A series of  'only bluetooth' speakers.

Thus the A6/9 should be called M6//9 - just my reasoning ;-)

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Any one have any pictures they can send me of the M5, tried to get some info off a local delear but they would not say anything. Tomorrow I need to either wallpaper round the Inwall ir for an essence or block the hole hole up and go for the new m5.

i did look at the BS1 but the white light in the bedroom is a no go.

the essence willbe paired with a pair of BL4.

hope some one can help.

thanks

Toby

@Toby

I guess you will have to be patient!

It is a tabletop speaker - meant for standing on a table, bench, board...

Could it be presented in Las Vegas on January 5th at the CES 2017?
