Four Woofers

Design-Soundbar from Denmark

B&O introduces its first soundbar: it is called "Beosound Stage" and has a seamless frame made of aluminum, optionally covered in natural aluminum with black acoustic fabric or bronze coloured aluminum with light brown fabric.

In the "Smoked Oak" version, the frame is made of oak with dovetail joints and the fabric is grey-mottled. Inside, there are no less than 11 loudspeakers, each driven by its own 50-watt amplifier: for the centre channel, four 10-cm woofers, two mid-range drivers and one tweeter, as well as one mid-range driver and one tweeter each for the left and right channels, angled outwards. Different listening modes can be set for movie, music, night mode, etc., and an equalizer allows manual fine-tuning. The "Beosound Stage" is preferably connected to the TV via HDMI with Audio Return Channel, where the volume is controlled via the TV remote control. Alternatively, it can be controlled using an optical S/PDIF input. It accepts music from a smartphone via Bluetooth, and thanks to Chromecast built-in and Airplay 2, it can also be integrated into the home network and multi-room systems. B&O is naming late autumn 2019 as the market launch date and a list price of 1500 euros for the natural and bronze versions. The wooden version "Smoked Oak" will be available for 2250 Euro exclusively in the Bang&Olufsen stores.
