Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2

Mac Format - - GADGETS - £299

What is it? It’s a por­ta­ble Blue­tooth speaker that costs £300 – which is quite a lot of pounds when you con­sider that many of the por­ta­ble speak­ers we rec­om­mend tend to come in at more like the £120 mark. Pre­dictably, though, B&O’s take on the cat­e­gory is re­ally smartly de­signed, nicely made and it sounds, quite frankly, pretty in­cred­i­ble. When’s it due? Avail­able now. Why are we ex­cited? No, but se­ri­ously, this thing sounds lu­di­crous for its size. It’s about the same size as most £100ish wire­less speak­ers, but it can ab­so­lutely fill a room with mu­sic at a con­ver­sa­tion-block­ing level that ac­tu­ally sounds good. And at more nor­mal lis­ten­ing vol­umes, it sounds re­ally quite spe­cial in­deed – rich and full, de­spite the thin size of the box. We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to giv­ing this a proper re­view soon!
