speakers are square boxes? Not when Bang & Olufsen. The Danes have tested for its shades of objects already in some type of Geometry. Now you have discovered the circle as a design requirement. Beosound Edge is the name of your most recent construct, and because it can stand upright in the room, such as a coin that landed on its edge. And how each Design object is of the Northern lights, the Edge has an ambitious set price: 3250 Euro, the dealer writes on the invoice. We have rolled about 50 centimetres high, round like an Appenzeller cheese in the listening room.
The most Striking at the Edge of speaker is its demonstrative unobtrusiveness.

Either via W-Lan in accordance with the protocols Chromecast, Airplay 2, or DLNA, or via Bluetooth directly from a mobile playback device. A cable connection is also possible. Under a cover, a multi – in addition to an Ethernet-Jack – connector for optical digital signals and electrical Analog sound. All the cables, including the connection to the socket, will be guided through a small Opening in the Aluminium-tyres exterior and with a black foam eartips fixed.
