Review: Bowers & Wilkins A5

Wired
2 April 2013
  • Pros: Hands down the easiest AirPlay speaker I’ve set up. A 3.5-mm input and an Ethernet jack on the rear panel handle direct wired connections should you decide to forgo AirPlay.
  • Cons: Bass can be overbearing when you crank the volume. Flimsy plastic remote is in direct opposition to premium metal and black cloth design of the speaker.

Its refined tonal character puts it a few steps above much of the lower-priced competition, and its bass output can be stunning given proper...

  • 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.

Bowers & Wilkins A5 : une approche épurée

Ere Numérique

  • Pros: Conception de grande qualité, Réalisation impeccable, Bonne définition sonore, Timbres harmonieux

  • Conclusion: Genom åren har Bowers & Wilkins gång på gång visat att de är hejare på att bygga kompakta högtalare med dockningsfunktion. Även om B&W A5 saknar dockningskontakt förvaltar den arvet väl.
