An absolute design classic from B&O with multiple versatile placement options. Eminently portable and space efficient, these units sound absolutely superb and remain relevant in a streaming era as they benefit from an aux-in socket. Meanwhile most modern wireless speakers cannot be easily mounted on the wall or fit snugly onto a thin shelf, at least not those than sound any good. The sound quality of the Century needs to be heard to be believed, with a large scale soundstage that emerges from such a slim package that is simply incredible and compares very favourably with some altogether larger Bang & Olufsen speakers.
It's testament to the quality of components used to build the Century - much more'hifi' than cheap portable, particularly the power transformer, CD and amplification stages, not to mention the high quality speaker drive units, cleverly isolated from the rest of the unit in their own acoustic chambers. I do believe that the Century is a B&O high point for its combination of design, build quality, sound and practicality. The sliding door is an item of pure theatre and never ceases to impress, nor the upward folding CD clamp that works with such grace. The buttons clever light up in red to guide your way through the functions with minimum fuss, remaining shaded when not in use. Supplied with your preferred colour of brand new B&O speaker covers.
This is a 240v European model and will require a step-down transformer for use in North America. Will come very well packaged for transit, I have experience packaging the Century to ensure it arrives safely. Please ask for a quote in advance if in any doubt.
