Bang & Olufsen is a brand name that says high quality at an even higher price. The speaker company known for for their style, power and price tag have finally thrown in their entry into the oversaturated iPod dock market, and they're playing for keeps.
The Beosound 8 delivers "breathtaking sound performance and offers elegant design and a simple user interface." This is Bang & Olufsen we're talking about, so that's all par for the course. What does make it unique is its relatively flat profile, giving you several options to display your ridiculously expensive speakers: you can hang them on a wall, or just have them sitting pretty on a shelf.
It comes with an AUX line in and USB port, so you can get these speakers even if you don't buy into Steve Jobs' BS. It can also network wirelessly, so you can just stream your music from your computer.
Expect nothing less than to pay an arm and a leg for these speakers. Of course, you'll be getting your money's worth, if extreme audio clarity is what you're into.
