It's time to set your music free.

- Listening how you like it: AirPlay on A5 works seamlessly with your favourite music apps, like Last.fm, Pandora and Mixcloud. However you like to get music, via lossless audio, MP3 or a cloud service, you can tune in on A5.
- Pristine Sound: A5 is designed simply to deliver spacious sound, from the highest quality audio files, wirelessly. Drivers from our M-1 speakers, anti-resonance plug technology and dimpled Flowports combine with high-quality digital-to-analogue convertors and processors to carry a digital signal untainted by distortion, to a room-filling, yet surprisingly compact, system.
- Years of experience: Bowers & Wilkins has been designing and making speakers since 1965. Key innovations from those decades of audio engineering experience are used to ensure that A5 sounds simply pristine.
- Nautilus tapering tubes: Not all sound is good sound. A5 features tube-loaded tweeters first seen on our flagship Nautilus speaker. Rear reflections in the cabinet are absorbed by the design, to ensure pure high frequencies.
