The danish audio-video manufacturer Bang & Olufsen is entering the iPod/iPhone accessory market with the BeoSound 8.

The brilliant-looking, great-sounding iPod dock – that also docks with iPads- is the first from B&O who claim that it is “the best of its kind in the market”.

It packs two 70w active speakers and the device has also been given an aluminium centrepiece that houses the touch controls.

The dock can be customised, too, with a number of coloured speaker fascias available. The speaker cones come in either white or black.

The BeoSound 8 has been created with Apple products in mind. However other devices can be connected to the system through USB or AUX line-in ports allowing pretty much any device to be connected.

The system has a manual room adaption switch with three positions which allows the speakers to adapt to their specific location.

the BeoSound 8 can be placed on a wall bracket or any flat surface without sacrificing on premium quality sound.

As well as controlling the system with the on-board controller, a circular disc remote is also included and it can also be controlled with one of their universal intelligent remotes.

BeoSound 8 units should reach the luxury firm’s resellers by the end of the month for about $1,490 in Denmark and $999 in the US.
