Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A6 is designed to be a do-it-all home speaker that is truly versatile. It is packed with advanced features and comes in upscale minimalistic Scandinavian styling.
Coming from Bang & Olufsen, Beoplay, your expectations will be met, or most likely exceeded. Beoplay A6 screams luxury and exclusivity all over.
The speaker is covered by exclusive custom designed wool-blend fabrics from high-end designer textile company, Kvadrat. This custom fabric is made from sophisticated multi-colored threads, which provide acoustic transparency while maintaining the desired looks and feels.
We describe its sound as room filling, crystal clear, detailed, powerful and truly engaging. Beoplay A6 is not a typical stereo system, it is rather a five-channel speaker system that brings you a fully immersive ambient sound experience. Its sound is driven by 2 x 60 watt woofers, 1 x 60 watt full range driver, 2 x 30 watt tweeters. Attentions have been paid to the slightest details – for example, the design of the grill on the back of the speaker is not merely for the aesthetics, it is also optimized for sound dispersion.
Beoplay A6 projects sound differently based on the setting you choose. Select from its 3 predefined sound setting – wall, corner and free standing, for optimum sound projection. Connectivity to the source devices could be done via Bluetooth 4.0, Airplay and DLNA.
Beoplay A6 can be linked with any other Chromcast or Beolink Multiroom capable speakers (such as additional A6, Beoplay A9 and M5) to play either the same song on all speakers, or different music on different speakers.
It supports most of popular audio formats, including MP3, AAC, WMA, ALAC, FLAC, WAV), up to the highest-resolution at 24bit/192kHz. You can also access thousands of internet radio stations at your fingertips via Spotify Connect, Deezer and TuneIn.
We regard Beoplay A6 as an evolution of classic stereo + advanced innovation in sound. Priced at $800, it is a good value for what it delivers and we highly recommend it.
