Summary: If you like good sound and wants a docking station. The B&O A8 is a must have. I was planing to buy the B&W zep. But after I lessened to the A8. I knew it was the best docking station on the market.
Summary: the beosound 8 will not work with an ipod 5th generation with click wheel or an ipod 4th generation with click wheel. here is how the B&O customer care agent put it: "I am sorry to inform you that we do not support these two iPod's for BeoSound 8. If you got any other iPod's you want to connect, please let me know and I will look to see if they are supported. Sorry for the negative answer.
Summary: I've had this for 6 months now and I can tell you first hand, it's the best sounding system out there in the market. I listen to all types of music and it sounds awesome. Ipad/Iphone to Pandora and your all set. For those of you concerned about price, there will always be a cheaper system out there and if you are going to spend several hundred dollars, you might as well go all the way get the system you want with no regrets.
Summary: I bought BeoSound 8 for my new iPhone 5 and my wife's iPad4 However it does NOT sync with either model but only to older models iPhone 3 or iPad2, so I had to send it back. On the other hand, Amazon promptly sent me a return label, then gave me a refund right away, so I'm truly appreciative of Amazon !!!
Summary: this product is not supported by Bang......my ipod would play but would not show any graphics .....customer service would not respond to request for help....endlessly frustrating....given the price of the machine..

Summary: I bought this speaker, on May 5 th and it stopped working on May 26. It would not power on. I was having a large party and it just stopped playing, ruined my party. The speaker has no power switch but goes on when you plug it in. Well if it's working it does. For the couple of weeks that it worked it sounded pretty good, not as loud as I hoped though when I bought it. Returning it to Amazon, and will no longer purchase B & O products.
Summary: Previous reviews were correct - iPod Classic sounds great, but for music, the iPhone 4 pales in comparison. I use an iPhone for streaming FM talk shows (NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me) which it does very well. I played a classical music piece from a CD on my Carver Amp/Pre-Amp with AR Spirit 162 tower speakers, comparing side-by-side the same [compressed] song from my iPod classic on the BeoSound 8.
