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.
Getting a new A5 up and running in your home couldn't be easier. With the free Bowers & Wilkins AirPlay App, it’s a breeze to set up and manage. The app will walk you through the simple steps to connect your A5 to Wi-Fi, and choose and manage your settings, all wirelessly. Because we’re sure you'd rather be listening to great music than messing about with cables or flicking through manuals.
Apple's AirPlay wireless streaming technology works with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.3.3 or later, Mac with OS X Mountain Lion, or Mac and PC with iTunes 10.2.2 or later. A5 features both 802.11G wi-fi and an Ethernet port for direct, cable control and the free Bowers & Wilkins AirPlay app makes sure wireless connection is easy.
