#TechThursday: Tune in to Bang & Olufsen's latest speakers from the Beoplay series
With the Lunar New Year just a fortnight away, Chinese families the world over busy themselves with throwing out the old and welcoming the new. Those looking to fill their home with fine tunes this year can turn to Bang & Olufsen brand new Beoplay M5 speakers. Clad in a premium, acoustically transparent wool-blend fabric from Kvadrat and topped with a pearl-blasted aluminium disc, the speakers blend seamlessly into the interior of any well appointed home.
While the speaker leads with stunning design touches by Danish industrial designer Cecilie Manz, they prove to be real workhorses when it comes to delivery top-notch sound quality. Fitted with evenly distributed tweeters, a powerful five-inch long stroke woofer, and finely tuned dispenser, the Beoplay M5 projects music in all directions — regardless of whether it's positioned in a corner or standing right in the middle of the room. "The design of B&O PLAY M5 is inspired by the way people use sound in their everyday lives — as a natural focal point for the family. The shape signals that sound is projected from all angles and visually, it can blend in or stand out in your home depending on personal preferences", says Manz.
Beyond bluetooth technology, the speakers are Chromecast-enabled and support Spotify Connect and Apple Airplay, making it easy for you to plug in all your favourite tunes.
B&O Play M5 is available in two colours, natural and black. Seasonal colours will be released at a later date. They will retail at Bang & Olufsen boutiques in Grand Hyatt and Takashimaya.
