BeoSound 8's design makes it flexible in use. It is suitable as a music system not only in a main room, but also in the kitchen, or on the patio. BeoSound 8 can be placed on a wall bracket or a flat surface. Additionally, it has a manual room adaptation switch with 3 positions (i.e. mounted on the wall, placed in a corner or freestanding on a flat surface) which allows it to be placed anywhere without compromising the sound performance, according to Bang & Olufsen. Furthermore, its sealed speaker cabinets, conical shaped speaker units, and digital amplifiers allow for a sonic range from lower bass tones (38 Hz) to higher frequencies (24,000 Hz).
The docking station offers one-step operation, as one can simply dock the device on the top of BeoSound 8 or connect it using the AUX line-in or USB ports. The docking station can be controlled on the iPod/iPhone/iPad from the BeoSound 8 bridge, by using the dedicated remote that comes with the product or you can control it with one of Bang & Olufsen's remote controls.
