Bang & Olufsen is introducing a new black BeoPlay A9 sound system to provide a more masculine look to contrast the white BeoPlay A9 released over a year ago. The black BeoPlay a9 features black side coating and a black anodized aluminum speaker ring while maintaining the same elegant A9 design that was well received by critics and buyers alike. Additionally, the A9 wooden legs are being changed to keep up with changes in interior design trends. The teak and beech wood legs will now be replaced by walnut and maple, respectively.
The BeoPlay A9 is a sound system designed by Danish designer Øivind Alexander Slaatto. It plays music from AirPlay, DLNA ready devices, and 3.5mm analog cables. The system features five speakers and a controlled bass port powered by a 480 watt Class D amplifier. The BeoPlay A9 can be mounted on wooden legs or the wall. Users can control the volume by swiping the A9 from side to side. The BeoPlay A9 Black Edition is available at Bang & Olufsen stores and selected design and department stores for AUD $2690 or NZ $3650.
