Described by its designer as ‘a revolt against indifference and black boxes’, the BeoSound 9000 is Bang & Olufsen’s latest ground-breaking contribution to hi-fi design. The designer is British-born freelance David Lewis, who has worked for the Danish manufacturer for 21 years and last year was made a Royal Designer for Industry. The BeoSound 9000 holds and plays up to six CDs and can be placed in any one of seven positions, including being flat on a shelf, wall-mounted or placed vertically on its own stand. Behind a motorised smoked glass door, the CDs face outward, allowing the user to determine the external appearance of the unit by the choice of CDs. It takes just six seconds for the BeoSound 9000 to finish playing a track on one CD and start another on a different disc. The unit even rotates played discs to the position they started in.
