Hi BeoWorld

Here is the introduction to the brand new Bang & Olufsen speaker called BeoSound Level

https://youtu.be/wa8izKOBKgc

 

World Premiere on BeoSound Level - a brand new speaker from Bang & Olufsen. Design by Torsten Valeur Bang & Olufsen Radio, AirPlay2, Chromecast, SpotifyConnect, Bluetooth, Line-in Beosound Level has been designed on the key insight that “Movability of sound in the home is highly valued by our consumers”. Any room. Any position. Any moment. Beosound Level lets you move with your music in new ways at home, without ever compromising on sound quality.

5 speaker drivers • 2x 0.8” tweeter (powered by a 15W amplifier) • 1x 2” fullrange drivers (powered by a 30W amplifier) • 2x 4” woofers (each powered by a 30W amplifier)

Remember that you can support the channel with only DKK 9 per month. As a BOTF Champion and BOTF Top Fan - you will get a lot behind the scene, secret products and a lot more. I hope you will support the channel. Click here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOlU6gU6TCho4GTG76s7shw/join

With great joy,I see a clear return to the design language of late 70s-early 80s.

I just loved it at first sight Smile

You see..It's designed by Torsten Valeur a David Lewis Designer, so the classic B&O design DNA  is running through the veins of this speaker.

Henryk, the spec sheet says something about it being part of the Connected speakers (range, I guess).

Suggests to me that this is the name of the "new" platform?

Which raises the question about whether NL and Connected speakers will play together.

Hooray! I saw it already features Netradio and BR One-support already.

Thanks Henrik,

This looks superb, I love the retro B&O styling.  I am expecting my Level to arrive any day now...

I have been working on the connection details - there is a 3.5mm audio input under the lift-off charging cover on the back of the Level.  You can use this cable to connect the Level to any existing Bang and Olufsen music system with a Powerlink output (full details to follow on my YouTube channel shortly!):

Kind regards, Steve.

Hi Sandyb

I cant comment on the new platform, but the BeoSound Level will work with BeoLink as you know - in the future

Yes that is correct - but netradio is only Bang & Olufsen Radio - or your favorite through BT, CC or AP2

Hi Henrik, good to hear! Without NL I have no use for it. It looks so good, I need one to be honest.

Are you sure about NL, as this was promised for the Balance a year ago already. Even for B&O a two year time frame for a update is really long. The hardware should already be in both Balance and Level?

Also I notice there is no more native music service embedded (Deezer. TuneIn), so it cannot function the same as a BS1/2, M3/5, A6/9 and others. Will watch your review first before asking more Big Smile

The statement about NL is direct from software engineers - and the launch date should hold - I agree on the timeframe on Balance its a joke - but the hardware and everything is ready on these products.

Its correct that no Deezer or TuneIn - TuneIn is swapped with Bang & Olufsen Radio, and if you want to play deezer its either through BT, AP2 or CC as for now.

Thanks Henrik,

Did not know about B&O Radio as a new service. Does not show up as a service on any of my current systems.

In the tech sheet of the Level, Beosonic is also mentioned as a feature. Any idea what that is?

Regards

I guess it is the same radio service as used in ie BS5 and which supports BBC.

As I remember, Tunein and BBC has a dispute over something. So in that perspective it makes sense.
