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.

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 !

Took the plunge and added a M5 to my setup.

Use it on my bedside table. No other multiroom capable B& device matched the interior in the bedroom. Smile

Sound is good for the TuneIN and NAS music collection I mostly play. Have it set as "corner position"  to have the bass reduced a bit. Will try timer and wakeup to some music in the weekend Stick out tongue

Control require some practice. E.g double "tap" to switch source, but I´m sure I will get used to it.

Thanks for the advise Smile

Do I set a specific wakeup volume?

Just borrowed one from my dealer, just to check it out and see how it performs. It is for my bedroom. I must say, it sounds great, however I really really really would like to be able to change treble/bass manually, it has way to much bass, even in the corner mode.

And one thing, is it not possible to change the sound setting after it has been set up ? It is just greyed out in my beoplay app.

I heard that M5 eventually will get the same sound mood settings as Beolit 17.

Yes :( Maybe a bad product. It happens sometimes. Not a big issue I will bring it back but if someone from B&O reads this thread : please, let us lower the bass....

Still on the lookout, and hopefully for the next SW update:

First priority: Would be very happy if I could pair the Essence remote again with the M5...

Second priority: Sound settings...

Alexa could connect to the M5.

Since my BS 9000 is connected with a BLGW to NL i can control music with Alexa in my main room. 

On my my last party it was impressing all the guests :-)

After the end of March SW update, it looks B&O added again the possibility to pair a remote.

But as the app says its experimental:

"Please be aware that the remote support is currently experimental and you may experience issues especially in environments with lots of wireless systems and wireless alarms. If you experience issues you may need to reboot your product."

Anyone have tried to pair an Essence remote?

Would be nice to add an Essence remote. I find it a bit fiddly to e.g "double tap" , and also switching  on and of laying in bed Smile
