I make this photo through the window ....

It shows like a very small speaker and the cheapest in the range.

Shame there's no Mozart, and hence no Airplay. I suppose it's time to give in and buy a Sonos Roam for the shower. 

Will be interesting to compare the performance with that of the A1 (2) - Explore is listed at £169.00​, compared with £200 for the A1.

The driver difference is curious - swapping the woofer & tweeter for two full range seems backwards to me. Will this replace the A1, or just sit as a cheaper addition to the line? It's getting a little crowded down there.

Yes, I thought that was pretty unclear too. Hopefully it’ll at least be a USB audio in - better than nothing. 

There weren’t any photos of the rear in the listing, so it’s possible the specs are incomplete and there is a line-in. Fingers crossed.

There is a USB-C connection for power so probably also for USB audio in just like the A1.

Sure, that will be the case with the USB-C.

But that won’t help Steve and others, who wants to pipe an analog audio signal into it.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I guess we'll have to wait till it's released. The BeoPlay P1 also didn't have a line-in...

On the other hand, it’s the right time for speculations (after the launch, it will be too late Big Smile)

In that case it needs to have Bluetooth 5.3, Wifi 6, analogue and optical in and out, wisa, powerlink and a battery that lasts 48 when playing at 75, eArc, ABL & the Mozard mk II platform. 2x 100w for tweeters, 3x200w midrange and 2x300w for bass. And all of this for max 250€

I’m going to be véry disappointed if B&O does not implement these feature. Then it proves that B&O does’t listen to their customers

The mid-20th century called.  It wants its design back.  And it wants you to know, "One Word: Plastics."  This is the perfect speaker for Chicagoans who live at Marina City, Angelenos who work at Capitol Records, or Muenchners who work at BMW Hochhaus.

I think it's manufactured, boxed up, shipped and ready to go - too late to speculate on anything.

But the launch of them are really bad.
