Bowers & Wilkins A5

Wired
29 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Happily, the sound quality is mostly commensurate with this super-sizing. The A5 may be the smaller of B&W’s two new AirPlay speakers (the other being the hulking A7 ) but this impeccably designed 80-watt rig has no trouble delivering the natural, refined sound the company is known for. Much of that is thanks to dual 1-inch Nautilus tube aluminum tweeters and a pair of 4-inch mid/bass drivers.

  • Conclusion: The Bowers & Wilkins A5 delivers excellent wireless audio via AirPlay at moderate levels, but struggles at top volumes on some deep bass material.
  • Pros: Robust, crisp audio performance over AirPlay. Substantial bass response at moderate-to-loud volumes. Easy set up process using free app. Attractive, sleek design.
  • Cons: Distorts on deep bass tracks at top volumes. Egg-shaped remote is awkward to operate. A tad overpriced.

  • Excerpt: B&W is a premium speaker manufacturer and is well known for its Zeppelin dock for iPods and iPhones . The A5 is smaller than you might imagine, but retains a similar design with black cloth and polished metal details.

  • Summary: Bowers & Wilkins’ kompakte AirPlay-højttaler A5 er en værdig efterfølger til flagskibet Zeppelin. Et betydelig mere kompakt format gør den lettere at placere, hvor man vil have den. Takket være app’en er den let at installere, og så kan du glemme alt om det og sende alt fra dit Apple-apparat. Men frem for alt lyder den uforskammet godt af at være så lille, uanset hvordan man torturerer den. Det i kombination med en rimelig pris gør, at den bliver bedst i test.
  • Pros: God lyd, Let at placere
  • Cons: Ingen finesser
