Bang & Olufsen’s Beolit 12 speaker brings a retro look to Apple Airplay
Danish consumer electronics manufacturer Bang and Olufsen will soon be getting on Apple’s Airplay bandwagon with its Beolit 12 speaker, pictured above. The compact speaker features a retro look and intricate speaker grill, as well as a carrying strap for portability. But under the hood, the Beolit 12 rocks a robust feature set, including WiFi, an Ethernet port, and USB port.
Users of iOS devices can play music on the Beolit 12 via airplay, while other devices can connect to the device via 3.5mm jack. The top of the Beolit 12 also serves as a resting area for your media player as well as music controls.
No word on pricing or a release date for the Beolit 12 yet, but the device won FCC approval today, suggesting that we will see it in time for the Holidays.
