Engadget Summary

Bang & Olufsen has never been one to shy away from intriguing design, and the BeoPlay A9 is no different. This AirPlay-capable speaker stands out among other speakers with its unique circular shape that also doubles as a volume control, and TrustedReviews calls the A9's design "minimalist in styling yet attention grabbing in its shape." Its round form houses five speakers that create a sound t-break refers to as "mesmerizing," with TrustedReviews being pleased with "the quality of its sound reproduction." The BeoPlay A9 avoids the 'form over function' cliché by not only looking modern and interesting, but by also providing an enjoyable audio experience. However, at $2700 this is a hard cost to justify when there are cheaper wireless options out there.
