its detachable and double-sided interface enables two different listening experiences, with the elegant aluminum panel featuring a touch screen for engaging interaction, and the oak side with a wheel control, that is designed for one-touch access to exactly the sound experience that fits the listener’s daily rhythm. its moodwheel enables users to express their mood and ‘beosound moment’ will find the perfect sound track to match it. this works depending on how close they chose to its center. the very middle selects from a list of only favorites whilst the outer parameters tempts listeners to more adventurous styles.
