  • Summary: I work in IT. I configure cisco / HP procurve wireless controllers and accesspoints for at work so I know and u derstand wireless. This product has wireless problems everywhere!! I paied $600 which is more reasonable then $800, but back to amazon it goes! Seriously, the wireless performance should be PERFECT for this pricepoint. I am using an apple airport extreme at home which performs flawless with all other airplay devices.

  • Summary: Beolit is smaller but heavier than I tought and it sounds just a little beat better than the bose portable speaker (400 usd) but it cost (800 usd). It doesn't have bluetooth conection, the eternet and usb cables are not provided, the initial setup for the wifi network is not easy and takes more than 5 minutes if all is going well. Great packaging but too expensive.

Chepaer alternatives

  • Summary: I bought this and it ended up being a faulty unit. Just simply would not connect to my network so I had to send back. It did work with via the jack cable and I found the sound on par with the much cheaper SONOS 1 I bought previously.

Not worth the price

Peter AP, Amazon

  • Summary: Setup was a really unhappy experience. B&O nowhere does your support page or instruction leaflet say that this product does not support 802.11n connectivity!!!! It took me 3 hours and at least 20 attempts, resets etc. to find that out. Once i moved the router to 802.11b/g/n mode connection worked flawlessly. The sound quality is good, without exaggeration at either end.

Annoying wifi

Campbell "Spadger", Amazon

  • Summary: The unit seems well made , better in flesh then in pics. I love my sound and needed to replace a Bose sound dock 10 in the dining room. This ticked the boxes I needed. Sound quality wise it's fine for what I need it to do , it does lose quality at higher volumes but not enough for an issue when you consider it's size (car battery).

Fantastic!... almost!

  • Summary: The design is very contemporary, elegant, and understated; it combines retro features with a timeless quality, which means that it will not date in a couple of years. The Beolit is extremely solid and well built. No black dusty fabric! It also works wirelessly using AirPlay (PC/Mac). I followed a YouTube video (Beolit 12 - Setup) to link it to my broadband network for wireless playing - you only need to do this once. Very easy. It works perfectly.

Beo Lit funktioniert im Batterie-Betrieb nicht.

Gerald Heise, Amazon
23 October 2014
  • Summary: Der Sound vom BeoLit 12 ist einzigartig, super, wirklich toll. Das Produkt ist sehr, sehr teuer. Daher ist es auch nicht zu akzeptieren, dass der Akku nicht laden wollte und auch kein Batterie-Betrieb möglich war. Es lag auch keine Anleitung und Garantie dem Gerät bei. Der Verkäufer hat das Gerät zurückgenommen und ein nun funktionsfähiges Ersatz-Gerät geliefert.

Gerät Top, leider schon zwei Defekte!

Konnybroe, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Beolit 12 gekauft um es vorzugsweise mit in den Park zu nehmen und trotzdem guten Sound zuhaben. Leider ist bei mir jetzt schon der Zeite Akku durch! Nach dem Auspacken des ersten Geräts hat das Beolit nicht angefangen zu laden was den Betrieb ohne Stromquelle unmöglich machte. Ich schickte es zurück und bekam ein neues! Dies ist jetzt nach rund 6 Monaten wieder kaputt. Selber fehler. Am Strom läuft es und ohne nicht! Wieder zurück.
