Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A3 Audio Dock: Elegant and Useful, but Still Expensive
May 4th, 2012
This speaker system combines multiple elements so that it’s a pretty functional accessory. The only bad thing I can think of is the price, which is more expensive than most iPad models. It definitely looks comfortable, and the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A3 is certainly distinctive for something you’ll probably end up using a lot at home.
The triangular module features speakers mounted on both sides, as well as an orientation sensor to activate the right stereo speakers, depending on the way that you are using the stand. Sound is provided by a Class D amplifier, and the speakers have an effective frequency range of 60 to 15,000 Hz.
The built-in battery is good for 5 hours of playback. It comes with an integrated dock connector, and will work will all generations of the iPad. The B&O Beoplay A3 sells for $730(USD).
