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.

somebody was kidding you. it's exactly the same except for the soundsettings which are done in the Beoplay app

Spec does not include Tunein. Correct?

So it does have a timer?

It has TuneIn, but you are not able to start that source from the device like the A6 with a short tap, you always need an app. Hope that a software update will fix this as I don't like to use a phone or tablet in the morning to start the radio in the bath...

It is unclear to me why this function is not implemented.

try it again, marcus. with one finger only it doesn't work, at least two fingers you need. in the B&O video they take four fingers. i hope the top will get less coarsened with time, could be more fine

It does not start TuneIn...

So I understood that you can start TuneIn even if all other sources in the network are off, right? If I have the M5 playing TuneIn (and all other devices off) and then switch the M5 off (so that the power light goes dark) and then start the M5 again with a press on the top, the power light comes on and a plopping sound can be heard (like the A6 and A9) but no music :-( in the BeoMusic App you can see that TuneIn is not startet... Does this work with your device?

By the way, can you connect the BeoPlay app with the M5, after the last SW-Update I can't connect any more.

Thanks and best regards

Marcus

all works pretty well with TuneIn and the M5: alarms, with the e.g. A6, different stations simultaneously on the devices. Beoplay app has sometimes to be started twice: one for bluetooth connection, second for wifi. have all apps and the M5 the latest software? with the wheel i can change sources but can't switch stations within TuneIn

Played with one in store today. MY GOD THIS THING FEELS CHEAP. I thought that plastic feeling wheel at the top was just going to pop right off. Very unimpressed.

I saw it today and wow it's really a cheap product experience wise. It looks like an air purifier with the elevated plastic foot and the sound is like are you kidding me bad. It sounds like you're playing music on a speakerphone - over a phone line. The highs are completely gone. Only mussy diffused mids (which also seems to come from the base(!) too. Bass was okey but it's like being tortured with bad sound. I really, really, really don't understand how it passed all checks before launch. Hopefully they can address it by firmware but I have doubts.

First thing I thought is that looks like a cheap mini version of my 5 year old Libratone speaker:

Actually, that looks better than the M5!

M5 is a strange beast. Both times I asked my dealer to demo the unit, the reckon they can't get it to work. Got the impression they don't want to demo it!

Moxxey at my dealer i found they put it out of reach and therefore is difficult for people to play with.

That top panel is a joke. It looks so cheap.

But then again it must be made for a different customer than me.

That being said, its a BP speaker with all of the services in at a good price point. The only thing is, i wont buy it, but if i was a new customer to B&O i might.

But would it want me to buy more B&O after that .... that's questionable.

If they can't demo that, they can't demo any of the new NL-speaker systems either!

Basicly it works just like the rest.

P.S. Tell them that the easiest way to demo it, is to use the bluetooth connection.
