Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 8 is a visually striking speaker docking station with its oversize dual conical-shape speakers, yet the stylish, portable design packs a premium sound. Plus, it offers a simple user interface that captures digital music from an iPod, iPhone, iPad, PC, or Mac. With its slim profile, the BeoSound 8 can be secured on the wall or it can stand on a shelf or tabletop, making it a versatile, digital music player for both small and larger spaces.
This iPod docking station can also be networked using the Apple AirPort Express to allow music to be streamed wirelessly from a PC or Mac. It comes with a dedicated remote control, or it can be operated with one of Bang & Olufsen’s intelligent remotes. The BeoSound 8 comes in black or white with aluminium details for $999.
