Yes, BeoPlay A8 is also compatible with iPhone 5.
We are very excited about Apple's new Lightning connector and are proud to announce that as the world’s first music system, BeoPlay A8 will be compatible with the new connector.
BeoPlay A8 offers wireless streaming of music from your iPhone/iPad or iPod through integrated Apple AirPlay technology. Connect it to your wireless network and the AirPlay icon will appear on your device ready for you to play your music through high-quality speakers without even getting out of your favourite chair. So simple and so nice.
BeoPlay A8 a simple plug-and-play loudspeaker. Connect to the mains and you’re ready to go. No installation is required and control of music is equally simple. Use the central operation button or the included remote to turn the volume up and down or choose next or previous track.
BeoPlay A8 integrates 2 x two-way systems, each with a ¾” treble unit, a 5” custom-made midrange/bass unit, a fully integrated 70 watt Class D amplifier for the bass and midrange and a 35 watt amplifier for the treble unit. To get the best sound performance no matter where you place the speaker, set the room adaptation switch and it will sound perfect.
BeoPlay A8 is easily moved around the house or brought along to e.g. the boat or summerhouse. Besides placing it on a shelving system or discretely in a corner, BeoPlay 8 comes with a wall bracket that allows you to hang it directly on the wall. BeoPlay A8 includes a removable dock placed centrally on the bridge. You decide whether you want to use docking of your device or not. A nice cover is included if you decide not to dock.
BeoPlay A8 has a distinctive design with a central aluminium-covered bridge where the removable dock of the iPhone/iPod/iPad can placed. Two circular speakers are placed at each end and they are outlined by aluminium rings, giving a distinct Bang & Olufsen look and feel. The speakers are two cone shapes pointing backwards, so the depth of the product cannot be seen from the front.
