BEOSOUND EDGE is a unique speaker with stunning looks and impressive power. The Edge is designed for intuitive touch and motion, an unbroken circle of clarity and beauty.
The Edge senses a user’s presence, its sensitive control interface comes to life, lighting up its touch-sensitive control interface through the aluminum surface. Simple and sophisticated. It mounts on-wall or on the floor, with volume controlled with a simple slight roll of its chassis.
Music streaming is easy via AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in or Bluetooth. BeoSound Edge is Multiroom-enabled and connects seamlessly to other compatible speakers in your home. Three dedicated sound settings guide the music in your preferred direction. Choose one of the two sides for a more intimate listening experience, or select the True 360 omnidirectional mode to fill the entire room.
Striking and unique looks and easy operation highlight the Edge’s superb and powerful sound, produced with 800 watts of internal amplification.
For more intimate settings such as office or den, the BEOSOUND 2 with Google Assistant is a marvelous addition The BeoSound 2 has recently added Google Assistant to its already surprising set of pluses making your home smarter, more elegant and hands-free.
Add more style to Dad’s den, office or game room with a powerful music source with looks which could just as well be contemporary 20 years from now as 20 years ago. The BeoSound 2’s sleek metal chassis hides five internal amplifiers for a total of just over 100 watts of power to fill even large rooms with breathtaking sound. It features the versatility of B&O’s Multiroom system, with AirPlay, Bluetooth, Chromecast, DLNA-DMR, Google Cast and Spotify Connect.
Wireless operation via smart devices is enhanced and made easy with Google Assistant. The BeoSound 2’s top-mounted volume control has five microphones to pick up voice commands, with a control panel on top to access next or previous tracks with a swipe of the fingertip. Turn it to adjust the volume and use the four programmable buttons to launch things like calendar, weather, radio and music playlists via Google Assistant’s compatible services–a nice touch.
B&O’s signature aircraft-grade aluminum chassis isn’t just for looks: its rigid cone shape provides great acoustical qualities while maximizing power and avoiding sound-muddying corner reflections. Give Dad this beauty and don’t expect to see him for hours while he enjoys the beautiful sound, ease of operation and matchless construction as Bang & Olufsen users have for over 90 years.
Does Dad still have his old TV? Fix that with the immersive picture and sound of a new Bang & Olufsen BEOVISION ECLIPSE. The dizzying depth of image provided only by an OLED screen combines with dynamite sound from the Eclipse’s Sound Center speaker, the world’s finest TV sound system. The Sound Center’s six internal speakers are powered by six amplifiers with a total of 450 watts output. The aluminum chassis avoids wasting power shaking the usual plastic box while the choice of grilles in several fabrics or hardwoods and two machined aluminum finishes make it customizable for any room’s looks.
Placement is also versatile, with static or motorized floor stand or wall bracket as well as a manual-swivel wall mount. As Dad would expect, the motorized systems are silent and silky-smooth in use.
The Eclipse features access to almost any music, local or worldwide, with streaming via Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth, DLNA, Spotify Connect, Deezer, built-in Chromecast and TuneIn Internet Radio.
The Sound Center can transmit to other speakers wirelessly, for adding either full surround with built-in surround processing or sending to other rooms.
The Eclipse is available with 65″ and 55″ screen sizes. Customize picture, sound and looks for wherever Dad wants to use the power and beauty Bang & Olufsen has built into this premium system.
Subwoofers can be a great addition to Dad’s movies and music. The BEOLAB 19 produces tight, accurate very low bass with a small room footprint and great looks. Low bass most often is associated with either large boxes which intrude on room looks or small novelty boxes which produce loud but often inaccurate sound. The BeoLab 19 is a sculptural design less than 14 inches in its largest dimension, but it packs a serious punch with its two tough back-to-back 8″ bass drivers, each with its own powerful 160-watt amplifier. Back-to-back driver placement makes the speaker stable and enhances response by balancing and canceling out conflicting waveforms from the twin drivers. The 19’s aluminum body assures all that power goes to the drivers and not to a wood or plastic chassis, while the sculptured aluminum eliminates internal and external reflections from flat surfaces. The result is accurate bass without blurring or booming, making the music or movie experience more natural. The three-position switch tailors response for where the speaker is located in the room, giving users more latitude in placement. Even if Dad gets carried away with the volume the BeoLab 19 constantly monitors the temperature of all driver units for top performance and reliability.
Versatility is increased with either standard wired connection or wireless WiSA tech to bring stability and precision to Dad’s listening experience and seamlessly connect with all WiSA-compliant speakers and TVs. The BeoLab 19 is available in grey, white or brass/black.
If Dad appreciates classics he will love the BEOLAB 18 speakers, the latest in a truly classic basic design going back to the original 1992 BeoLab 8000. An iconic pillar of luxury sound, BeoLab 18 is crafted from carefully selected materials including machined aluminum body and black, white or hardwood grills in oak smoked oak or walnut. The high performance and elegant looks of the 8000 have been upgraded in the BeoLab 18 with the addition of a free-mounted top tweeter with Acoustic Lens for accurate dispersion of high frequencies throughout the room, bigger and better amplification and a number of new grill options. Room-friendliness is increased with the choice of floor or wall-mounted placement.
The BeoLab 18 is not just a work of domestic art. Its two internal 160-watt amplifiers back up the double woofers and top-mounted tweeter for room-filling sound. Adaptive Bass Linearization allows wide volume range by tailoring the bass output to ensure safe operation at high volumes. All drivers’ operating temperatures are constantly monitored for safety and reliability. The aluminum body of the 18 is available in black brass, aluminum, and a limited-edition bronze, complimenting the grill choices to fit any decor.
