B&O announces very pretty, very expensive Chromecast-enabled soundbar

B&O holds a history of developing speakers which do not look similar to other speakers due to the firm’s minimalist aesthetic. The firm has been busy preparing a B&O soundbar which may really complement its conical shaped speaker which was introduced sometime ago. The B&O Beosound Stage comes with a sleek, thin design having Kvadrat fabric as well as metal or wood housings.

This is the first true B&O soundbar meant for televisions and has spared no design or expense. It comprises of 11 custom speakers, with a 50 Watt amplifier in each. You also get four 4 inch wide woofers as well as 2 inch middle-range domes coupled with one 0.75 inch tweeter. There is also an extra set of 0.75 inch and 0.5 inch tweeters on either ends of the soundbar. According to the firm, placing these speakers at a 45° angle aids in producing a 3-dimensional sound effect. And, the Beosound Stage comes with Dolby Atmos support but naturally.

The B&O Beosound Stage not only connects to your television set for audio but also comes with support for AirPlay, Chromecast, and Bluetooth streaming. The basic Beosound Stage model comes with a choice of either bronze or aluminium and is price at €1,500 while the smoked oak wood variant is priced at €2,250.
