Bang & Olufsen Beolab 14 Speakers
Founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, Bang & Olufsen are considered by some a very top end, if not the top end company supplying various A/V products. And they might well need to be…
Well, you’d have to be a top end buyer if you wanted to buy their latest ‘entry level’ surround sound speakers. The Danish company have just launched the Bang & Olufsen Beolab 14 surround sound speakers, a 4.1 surround sound setup which is available for a staggering $3,995. These, as you may have noticed are entry level speakers when you talk of the might and quality of B & O.
You may like to know what you’d be getting for your money from the new Beolab 14, right? Well, the rig is centred around a 280-watt amp, housed in a small, cylindrical tower. This is for the down-firing, eight inch bass driver. Oh and not forgetting the connections for up to five individually powered satellite speakers. These speakers are 140 watts, equalised and are 2.5 inches, so you needn’t worry about space as they can be wall mounted or set on stands.
If you’re wondering about colour then you needn’t as you only get two choices. When the Beolab 14 is released in June it will be available in black or white, tough choice… Thought the speaker cover fabrics can be changed at $99 each and you will get 6 colours to choose from there if you want to add a little pop to your system.
It’s top end kit at a top end end price, and to be fair, it looks rather slick as well. We will let you know what we think when we review the Bang & Olufsen Beolab 14.
