It's now out... Not badly priced, design simple but OK,  but still only Airplay 1 :-(

And I find the 65-22000HZ frequency range strange compared to the little P2. Beolit 17 goes much more down in bass range...

And it’s portable. I thought the BeoLit 17 to be the best BeoPlay speaker after the A9.

I agree...

But I don't trust the batteries from B&O... (it's the only disadvantage of the BL17 for me; and that's why I took the Beosound 2 and not the BS1 even if I preferred the more compact design)

Hello all, Bang & Olufsen of Manchester just posted their YouTube video.

i love the look of that speaker, it’s mains and Multiroom perfect for small spaces like my bathroom.

definalty one for my setup.

i wonder if it will connect to BLGW and maybe essence remote.

My dealer says it will be Airplay 2 capable.

You mean it works on batteries?

I cant really read that from the specs.

In a way it is a bit like the beolab 4000's but not so posh looking.

and no ethernet port for hard wiring.....

perhaps not surprising for such a small speaker, but still...

I quite like this - will be interesting to hear how it compares to the HomePod when released.

How do you plug a mains speaker in your bathroom?

Please read the thread - the person above is comparing it to the (portable) BeoLit 17. ie, the M3 *isn't* portable.

@Jan : no Beoplay speaker has WISA capability, it’s more sound systems with beolink multiriom, deezer, tune in and airplay/chromecast than “speakers”.

Nope. They can not.

Not uncommon to have a mains socket in your bathroom (at least here in Sweden)
