Design is combined with the latest technology in the new Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A9, ‘a speaker system that’s crammed into one mightily spherical unit’. The device can be connected to your gadgets wirelessly, creating impeccable, no-strings-attached sound.

It features two three-quarter-inch tweeters and two 3-inch midrange drive units, with each driven by separate 80-watt class D amplifiers.

Being a massive piece of art, it will make any wall, corner or desk instantly decorative, enhancing your artistic mana. It can also sit on its own stand on the floor. The volume is controlled in a very elegant fashion, since you only have to wave your hand across a sensor.

Available starting November.
