No strangers to agenda-setting audio technology, B&O PLAY have followed up their much-lauded A9 home speaker with the new S8 system. Comprised of two 2.5-inch satellite speakers and one weighty 8-inch sub woofer, the S8 uses AirPlay technology to link wirelessly to almost any device you can point at it, providing flexible, high-definition audio without the need for clumsy cables. Aesthetically, it’s no accident it looks as smart as it does, having been conceived by award-winning Danish industrial designer Torsten Valeur. The housing for each unit is crafted from a single piece of aluminum, ensuring both acoustic fidelity and a sleek, unblemished appearance, while the speakers themselves can be wall-mounted almost anywhere in the home. Available in physical Bang & Olufsen stores and via the B&O PLAY website, the S8 goes on sale across Europe this August, so look out for it soon.
