B&O Beosound 5 Still Has A Long Way To Go

  • Summary: The new Beosound 5 sound system from Bang & Olufsen has been a long time coming and is primarily designed to move B&O into the world of digital content management and while the system looks the part at $9,200 I think I would prefer a simple iPod touch.
  • Pros: This is a smart looking unit which does extend the B&O family into sound management. It is well built but lacking in several areas.
  • Cons: The fact that this system is designed only for right handed consumers shows that B&O have not thought this product out enough as it is faily easy today to design a swivel mount. As for the system there in not much in the software that you will not find in an iPod Touch.
