Bang & Olufsen Beolit 12 speaker for Apple goodness

If you are an owner of the iPhone, Apple iPad or even a Mac and in the market for a new portable speaker by a very well known name then perhaps the new Bang & Olufsen Beolit 12 speaker for Apple devices might meet your requirements, as the Beolit 12 is a speaker that utilises Airplay tech to stream your music.

According to the guys over at Miami Herald, the Bang & Olufsen Beolit 12 measures 9-inch x 5-inch and is approximately 7-inches tall and resembles a small cool box clad in aluminium with a rubberised top that delivers access to volume, power controls and wireless network indicator and weighs in at roughly 6 pounds.

At the rear of the Beolit 12 are USB and inline ports so you can connect your iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple iPad or other device if you wish to do so, however apparently the speaker works best with Apple’s ecosystem especially Airplay and when you introduce the speaker to your network it shows up as an output option on the pop-up menu and you simply choose it and the music starts to play.

Setting up the Beolit 12 can be a bit of a hassle though, you have to open the back and connect an Ethernet cable and power cable then connect the Ethernet cable to your computer that must not be connected to the internet during steup. Once done you type in the web address that will open the B&O setup page and enter your WiFi network details then disconnect your computer and wait for the Beolit to restart, after which you should be rewarded by rich sound coming from the 120-watt amp, 4-inch woofer and two 2-inch tweeters.

So now down to the nitty-gritty of how much the Bang & Olufsen Beolit 12 speaker for Apple devices will set you back, for those that would like to purchase the accessory you can purchase the device by hitting up the Beoplay website and handing over $799, roughly £599.
