Bang & Olufsen, the Danish provider of high-end audio and video products, launched at CES 2013 in Las Vegas a new sound system, Beolab 15/16 & Amplifier 1. What’s different about this system is that it’s been designed specifically for in-wall or in-ceiling placement, looking like pieces of art.
“This active built-in sound solution was conceived for installations where people want great sound without having to find room for freestanding speakers,” says Bang & Olufsen Product Manager, Michael Jensen. “The combination of two speakers and a subwoofer – all built-in, all with drivers powered by separate amps – deliver a premium sound experience throughout the room. Additionally, the motorized tilt adds a touch of practical magic to enhance the listening experience.”
Priced at $4595 the new sound system that includes a pair of BeoLab 15 speakers, BeoLab 16 and the Amplifier 1, is available at selected Bang & Olufsen stores from January 2013.
