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.

Today's M5 (and A6, Essence and other) update should fix my issues according to BeoCare. I'll update you tomorrow.

 

I am very happy with my M5, a bit bassy. There is basic EQ settings in the Beosetup app. Haven't played with them yet.
I had a major concern:
When i tapedp the M5 from standby i would expect it to start again from last soruce. Eg. Tunein. The same behaviour like i get from my A6. But it doens't. When i tap it it goes into bluetooth which i haven't ever used with the M5 and i couldn't find a way to change that.
Deep in the beosetup app under sources > sources i found the ability to prioritize and enable / disable sources.
I put Tunein on top and now it behaves as expected.
When i wake up in the morning i tap it and it starts playing my favourite radiostation through Tunein which is #1 on the priority list.

Latest update fixed my issues, one tap goes now to my first Local List entry and the led stops flashing red when network is back. All in order

Can't tell you about the Essence connectivity and the Tone Control is not included in this update unfortunately

Ok - thanks anyway!

Anyone tried the Essence remote with M5 and the SW update?

Bought two of these for home, not really happy with the sound. They're very bassy but not really in a good way. Apparently a software update is coming to fix this....

Isn't it possible to adjust basic Treble and Bass through the Beosetup app? Or am mixing it with another product in the app?

"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!

 

Hello there. I've just joined BeoWorld and it made me smile that people were discussing my channel. I hope you like your new M5. John (B&O Manchester)

Latest firmware: no bass or treble adjustment like the A6 has.

No remote control connection possible neither essence or remote One BT

The Beoplay App (iOS) has the stand setup (corner,free,wall) which changes minor bass setting , but not as expected.

 My dealer told me that bass adjustment should come with one of the next updates.(When????? I need it, the toaster in the kitchen  walks like an egyptian)

There is an undocumented feature:

Pressing down and turning left or right the button will  change the station / title,so you need not have to use the app.

That will come, but it will be like the settings Beolit 17 has, where you can choose different "styles".

Why do they insist on selling these things with such a ridiculous bass heavy "default"?? Its so infuriating. The S3 is the same - it's great that you can alter the EQ by selecting different "moods" using the App but these only apply to digital, i.e. Bluetooth streams - the Line Input is left with the unalterable default setting and is therefore all but useless as a feature.

Surely a neutral default would allow all to use the device in all its modes and the cloth-eared could still annoy the neighbours with the "Citroen C3" Mood by using the App!!

 

Ban boring signatures!

I confirm there is too much bass !

I bought mine 1 month and a half ago, it's in the bathroom so only used half an hour per day maybe and not loud at all ! Since a few days it begins to make bad cracks on each bass like if it was used full power foreurs since 5 years !

That's not a good sigb if it even can't endorse its default bass settings !

Thanks for the tip, but I'm not so handy.... It works as you told us but a too long press/manipulation shuts down everything.  My lovely wife was not so happy when the TV shuts down suddenly... Angry
