The danish designer Jakob Wagner behind this new speaker, and he announce: “In a way I have designed BeoPlay A6 the same way I design a piece of furniture, however here form follows sound and interaction. Its intuitive yet surprising shape always “plays to you” no matter where you are and generates a much more intimate relationship than you would normally get from a conventional music system. BeoPlay A6 can blend in gracefully with almost any interior yet stand out with its distinct character. No matter if you place it freely, in a corner or on the wall it will become the center of social interaction like a contemporary jukebox”,

The fabric on the outside of the Beoplay A6, is made of quality material. B&O partnered up with the company Kvadrat, which is a leading manufacturer of design textiles. The design is as you would expect from a design company like B&O, something that would fit in all kind of interior designs in most homes. It comes in 4 different colors to choose from, Light Grey, Dark Grey, Dark Rose, and Dusty Blue.

The variety of features seems like it got everything you would need. Wireless streaming of music can be done via either Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA or Airplay. They have made an intuitive touch interface to control the speaker, which works great, and giving it a bit more edge towards other products in this category.
Furthermore it supports the BeoLink Multiroom technology which allows the speaker to be connected to other B&o products, making your home complete audiowise.

Power from this speaker should also live up to todays standard. It is driven by, 2 x 5,5″ woofer, 1 x 1.5″ full range, 2 x ¾” tweeters, and the effective frequency range is 35 – 30.500 Hz.
