That’s an interesting choice, Steve. The original Beosound 1 rarely gets much attention. A problem that I see with all of the aluminum grill speakers, though, is that they show dings very noticeably. It’s challenging to find them pristine on the second-hand market after all these years.

My choice of speaker to suggest to someone new to B&O would be the Beoplay A6 or Beoplay M5. These speakers are very affordable, have the modern streaming services as well as aux input, have that B&O tactile magic (especially the A6 where you just run your hand along the top to adjust the volume), and beautifully fit into any decor. Even better is to get both so that you can begin to appreciate B&O’s multiroom benefits and expandability.
