    BeoSound 8 vs BeoLab 4

    Looking to get some speakers for the bedroom and was wondering interms of sound quality which is better. They are both about the same price and I love the looks of both. I have an extra AirPort Express I would use to connect it with the rest of the house.

    To my ears BeoSound 8 is much better than BeoLab 4.

    Go to your dealer Nd have a listen

    Yes BeoSound 8.  Why not wait for the updated Airplay spec one in 2012? Or at least that's the rumour...

    Don't forget the awesome coloured grilles!

    Having had both. . .the BeoSound 8 is MUCH better. IMO

    The lab 4s have a very 'tinny' sound.  .

     

    I'm ready for something new that I actually want to buy!

    BeoSound 8 with AirPlay sounds like it would be worth the wait.

    You already have an extra airport express and a $100 gift card.  Wait for what, Paul to buy one?

    I much prefer the idea of Airplay than Airport Express - no extra boxes, cables and stuff to plug in and connect. But, each to their own I guess!

    A separate airport express allows you to position the bs8 in an area without very good wifi reception and locate the airport where you want.

     

    A separate airport express allows you to upgrade the airplay part if apple ever bring out AirPlay 2.

     

    A seperate airport express with the bs8 will be cheaper than the airplay version.

     

     

    Its still better to just dock the iPad or iPod anyway, for sound quality and battery life.

     

    I just don't get the need to have everything built in

    Re: BeoSound 8 vs BeoLab 4

    I wont want to dock the iPad because id really like to use it whilst im listening to my iTunes or just leave it on a coffee table so its within easy reach that's why Airplay is appealing.  I'd of thought it would only add £100 to the rrp?
