Beoplay A9 MK2 vs. Beoplay A9 MK3

Beoplay A9 MKIII - New updated version

At first glance, there is no big difference between the 2nd and 3rd generation of A9. But to meet future requirements we have updated the technical platform and hardware in our updated version Beoplay A9 MKIII:

  • The primary update is the addition of two full-range driver units on the back of Beoplay A9, which through reflective acoustic principles, provides a wider and more captivating sound image. With the two units, the A9 3rd gen. contains seven units.
  • A new and stronger streaming platform ensures faster streaming (eg using Chromecast)
  • Improved wi-fi connectivity
  • With Apple AirPlay 2, Apple customers can now use the new multiroom platform
  • The product price is increased by 300€-450€ for a suggested retail price of 2.500€ for the standard versions and 2.750€ for the special editions
  • To be consistent with the rest of the range of flexible speakers, we have removed the USB port and Spotify Connect feature (which has been replaced by the AirPlay 2 and Chromecast features).

Retail prices:
Beoplay A9 MKII retail price from 2.200€ – 2.300€
Beoplay A9 MKIII retail price from 2.500€ – 2.750€
