A friend posted this in our chat group today and it’s quite cool. I wonder if anyone is going to do this with a pair of beovox or something like that.

A high quality 99 dollar amp with Sonos, AirPlay 2 and self calibrating audio circuitry using a microphone in your phone (almost like a Beolab 5/50/90). One per speaker so about 200 usd for modernizing a pair of older speakers.

Thanks for sharing Michael!

What a great hack and what an impressive price point for that speaker, especially compared to similar B&O gear!

One downside though, I am pretty sure the crossover frequency is fixed, and thus properly not ideal for another speaker, but hey - Close enough !

It's actually cheaper than a second hand Beolink Passive..
