There are those high-fidelity hounds who can’t wait to show off their latest audio upgrade. But tech-savvy as they may be, when it comes to aesthetics, some may find their home theatres and living rooms weighed down by the heft of the latest machinery. In this case, Bang & Olufsen’s BeoPlay A9 Nordic Sky collection is a breath of fresh air. The speakers are inspired by the beauty of Scandinavian summer nights—available in dawn, dusk, or twilight shades—and their wireless connection and streamlined operating system are functional bonuses for what might be easily mistaken for merely a dreamy design addition to the home.
