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.

No talk about support for the 'wheely' remote.

Local controlling surely is handy, but not always - depending on where you place this speaker system.

And you shouldn't always have to grab your phone!

I suppose, that this will come later (or maybe it already is possible, but just not mentioned anywhere?)

It's explicit that it's working perfectly with the A6/A9 but do we know how well it integrates with a multi room-enabled beovision or an essence mkII ?

It's all the same - so why not?

Soon someone will have the M5 at home - we'll just have to wait for a final confirmation of this.

(Or for a B&O dealer to write here)

Michael:

B&O Manchester walk thru...

John mentioned in the video (thanks for the video, John), that the M stands for Moveable.

Can anyone confirm this?

It seems a bit odd, since the A6 and even the A9 are moveable too - and being moveable isn't the most obvious thing to call a device, that needs a power supply to work/and has an ethernet port.

It would be more informative if it stands for Multiroom, since it - as a B&O Play product - can be part of the NL-multiroom experience.

P.S. The A6/9 would consequently have to be renamed (to M6/9) in the future, then.

Anyway - I find it a nice addition to the portfolio.

Hello Just spoke to a dealer and he confirmed that it in fact works standalone or as part of the Multiroom experience so will work with a moment etc.

I have had confirmation that the M5 will appear in the BLGW as a Device also the same as the Sound1 and 2.

Now the lead time from the website and a dealer would be interesting to know.

again: it is a fully integrated member of B&O's multiroom-family, and also, of course, a stand-alone. my dealer also told me that the M is for "moveable"

Thanks egges!

I still find 'Moveable' a bit odd ;-(

Reading Engadget's review... https://www.engadget.com/2017/01/05/bang-and-olufsen-beoplay-m5-wireless-speaker/

... and I found this interesting.

"The compact speaker's acoustics are capable of both beam direction and beam width control thanks to a new version of the technology from Bang and Olufsen's luxury BeoLab 90."

I think this is the first I'm hearing of any reference to the BL90, in respect to integration of the technology within any other B&O product.

I'm sceptical that this is possible with just three tweeters (two of which are powered by the same amplifier), one midrange and an omnidirectional woofer. I would love to be proven wrong, though.

I had a listening session this afternoon.

I sounded very good, although I prefer less bass. It fills with no problem a room and is very enjoyable a high listening level.

The essence wheel remote works perfectly with the M5.

I found it a excellent speaker for the money.

Can the bass be adjusted with an EQ or by using the three position toggle switch for free corner wall like other products which adjusts bass.

The two new BeoSounds and the M5 do not have a three position switch for bass.  It looks like the firmware for the M5 is more advanced than the BeoSounds as it can be paired with the Essence remote.  I'm still waiting for adjustments for Bass and Treble for my BeoSound 2, but I am expecting that to come to all three, hopefully soon.

it's just the three positions. setting has to be done in the BeoPLAY-app, the rest one configure in the Setup-app
