Bang & Olufsen Unveil “Entry Level” BeoLab 14 Surround Sound System
May 18th, 2013
When it comes to high-end audio products, Bang & Olufsen make some of the most elegant and expensive devices on the market. Saying “entry-level” for these guys sort of like saying entry-level Ferrari, in that you know just because it’s their cheapest product, it’s still going to be very expensive. Bang & Olufsen have announced a new home theater system called the BeoLab 14.
The company says that this speaker system uses its high-quality acoustic engineering and components, and while it’s designed specifically to complement Bang & Olufsen televisions, it will work with other TVs as well. The satellite speakers have a distinctive flat, round design, while the subwoofer looks like some sort of fancy vase.
Each of the satellite speakers offers 140 W of power, and the subwoofer has 280 W of dedicated power and an eight-inch downward facing driver. The system can be connected to B&O televisions with a built-in surround sound decoder, or you’ll need to have a receiver that can do the decoding if you don’t have a B&O TV.
You can also select from a variety of colors for the satellite grille cloths, to complement your specific room decor.
Buyers can opt for a 4.1 solution at a price of $3995(USD) or a full 5.1 solution at $4395. The BeoLab 14 will be available in B&O stores around the world this June.
