The Bang & Olufsen DCOTA showroom will provide the complete Bang & Olufsen product portfolio in addition to the newly launched sister brand - B&O PLAY - that offers portable, entry-level products that accentuate the hallmark B&O competencies of superior sound performance and strong design aesthetics. The DCOTA showroom will also be the first US showroom to feature the newly launched BeoPlay A9, the premium active speaker system from B&O PLAY that features a powerful wireless sound experience, original and provocative design, flexible placement options and intuitive, "invisible" operation. BeoPlay A9 will be available for a special preview only for the Grand Opening event, and then will arrive the second half of November when it becomes available for purchase.
"We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of Bang & Olufsen DCOTA," states Jimmy Baikovicious, Owner of B&O DCOTA.

Our goal is to use technology to make life more comfortable and enjoyable with the special sensitivity touch demanded by the local design community."

Additionally, over the past eighty-seven years, Bang & Olufsen has become an icon of performance and design excellence and we are happy to extend our company's tradition to the South Floridian Design and Contract community - with the addition of our fourth B&O showroom to the Sunshine State."
The new DCOTA showroom will also showcase Playmaker, a state-of-the-art receiver that streams music wirelessly from any smart phone to ones dedicated B&O loudspeakers.
