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.

I placed my order via Beoplay.com for the black version.

It's priced at $779 CAD.

Here is what the inside graphic look like:

They did not like it that much on Verge : http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/1/5/14091944/beoplay-m5-wireless-speaker-chromecast-airplay-ces-2017

 

But on a demo floor judging the audio is not that easy.

How's Beoplay.com's return policy? It says 14 days, but then gets vague about open packaging:

Opened boxed item(s) may be considered for a refund where B&O PLAY Products are left intact in their original packaging i.e. plastic bags that contain the B&O PLAY products.

Can I listen to it and return if I don't like it?

Great video especially like the comparison at the end.

Perfect simple alternative, got to love how Beoplay can interact with main bang and Olufsen products.

Shame they didn't release this before Christmas surly that would have made sense.

"Hello John from Bang & Olufsen in Manchester" are sweet, sweet words to my ears. Love his videos. Nice to see how the cover is removed....Looking forward to seeing some interesting colour options in the future. 

I wasn't head-over-heels for the A1 or A2....But my standards were quite high at this price points. My A1 however, is my pride and joy. 

 

Can't wait for mine to arrive!

Just out of curiosity. Can it easily be setup to play radio from TuneIn?

And do you need to have your phone with you if you just want to start the TuneIn station you listened to let time?

It is quite impressive.

I assume it is as with the A6 and A9.

Then you can wake it up from standby with one touch and TuneIn start with the station you listened to last time.
