LOOKS very very cool, but...

Summary: ...for less money you could get a far better SOUNDING system. It *is* really cool-looking, though...no argument there. If you want a conversation piece at home, this is it. Or if you have very contempo decor at home. I spent about 30 minutes toying with this thing at the B&O shop. I have to say, it does sound pretty good though I agree with the audio review at "WhatHiFi" that you need to have it cranked up to at least 80-90db (fairly loud party levels) to get the best...
Summary: BeoSound 8 - Black Great Sound.. BUT...the shortcomings are too numerous for a $999.00 purchase 1.does not have built in wireless. Must use a airport express. 2.If using the express you cannot use the usb cable with it, you must use RCA connections, and it there is no room to install them without leaving the back cover off. So this clean looking device now has all these wires hanging out the back making it ugly on your counter top.
