Well that was a surprize! No rumours of it here and just this second launched on their Instagram.

I've been out from BeoWorld for a while. Had forgotten the hilarious reactions to coming products just based on a photo. Please hold the heavy artillery until you've seen it and heard it in real life.

I think pricing is a bit on the high side compared to A8 especially considering that if you want a different color then grey you have to buy extra cover which adds another 129$ here in the US.

But you know what, this has multi room. I will connect it to my Airport express to get it into my wireless network, not as slick as I had hoped but good enough.

@AnalogPlanet

it has a wired ethernet, so you are supposed to connect it to a wireless router or, like I do with my playmaker to get it into my 5GHz network, use an airport express.

Not sure why they didnt use the chipset that they use in the A9. Seems stupid. Moment, A9 and A6 all use different chipsets with Moment being 2.4 GHZ wify, A9 5GHz bluetooth, A6 wired ethernet and bluetooth.

Bravo !!

I like the look.

I too love the multi-room linking as an entry point.

I predict my daughter-in-laws will go for it.

I think that they took some inspiration in an other danish company which uses Kvadrat wool to cover their speakers...

Thanks Benoit for the link Yes - thumbs up

Seems BeoPlay and Vifa have the same portfolio - funny Smile

Just a comparison between prices.

• BeoLit 15 € 499.- > Helsinki € 399.-

• BeoPlay A6. € 999.- > Copenhagen € 699.-

• BeoPlay Sx € xxxx.- > Stockholm € 1.499.-

The BeoPlay A6 is overpriced.

Incorrect. The A6 is both 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz. Think of it as a smaller A9 MKII with a different form. 

Ah, you know... A little B&O here, a little there

I'm unsure on the office furniture look...

The A6 is the seat back, the H2 headphones are the castors. Next will be the seat and armrests!

Actually it does (at least now). 

WIRELESS NETWORKS
WLAN - 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz & 5GHz)
Bluetooth 4.0

 

And while I have yet to comment on the design I was very surprised to see it yesterday, they have really been able to keep it secret in a very good way. Kudos B&O! Designwise I like to see it IRL before I judge it.

I suspect that you are not comparing like with like unless you are just talking about fabric covers.

Incidentally, the French speaker that you are forever promoting has a scratch prone abs plastic body, and some very suspect specificarion claims like '1000 times better sound than anything else'.

The A6 looks cool! It would be great if I could also refurbish my Beolabs 9 with the same Kvadrat cloth!

I'm going to get a suit made in the dark grey Big Smile

But seriously, the more I look at the A6 the more I like it.
