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: 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: 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.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, these speakers have great audio quality. I have listened to computer speakers that are around 500$ and I would go out right then and purchase them due to the audio quality. When my brother received these for Christmas this year I was very excited and had to say that at mid range volumes, they sounded pretty much the same as the the computer speakers.
