Bang & Olufsen Playmaker is the latest in AirPlay streaming

Bang & Olufsen have already delivered two of the most stylish and critically acclaimed AirPlay speakers in the market in the BeoPlay A8 and the BeoLit 12. Their latest contribution can best be described as a base station for streaming, allowing you to connect other stand alone speakers. Meet the Bang & Olufsen Playmaker.

Bang & Olufsen Playmaker supporting AirPlay and DLNA streaming

While AirPlay is one of the key features of this streaming station from Bang & Olufsen, it is not the only trick. It also supports DLNA, so in theory you can stream audio from pretty much any network source, including smartphones, tablets, PCs and media servers/NAS drives.

The Playmaker connects to your wireless network (or ethernet cable), and if you have more than one you can also set up a multi-room system. It supports lossless streaming of your digital music, so all you need to do is ensure your digital files are up to scratch. The Playmaker, on first view, does not look as sleek and stylish as many of the other B&O products we have come to love over the years, but it is small and stealth, and as long as it delivers on the streaming i’ll be happy. Ideally you would probably want to pair it with some Bang & Olufsen speakers as well, so it will likely set you back a bit.
