B&O Launch New Wireless Speakers That Deliver 24bit Sound

By David Richards | Wednesday | 30/10/2013

Bang & Olufsen has introduced new wireless speakers that delivers music based on the 24bit/96kHz WiSA standard, the Company is also moving to sell more products via mass retailers as they aim to compete with Bose in the wireless Hi Fi market.

The new range can be used as separate modular component, or as a complete Hi Fi system comprising of a compact BeoLab 17 bookshelf speakers, the BeoLab 18 floor standing columns, and the BeoLab 19 subwoofer. It is not known when the new system will go on sale in Australia.

The BeoLab 17s are designed in an asymmetrical triangular shape that is specifically designed to provide a variety of placement options, these speakers have a six-inch midrange/woofer, which is driven by a 160-watt integrated amplifier.

The BeoLab 18s are B&O's first aesthetic flagship, building upon the iconic pencil-shaped BeoLab 8000 design that was first introduced in 1992.
 The black mesh grill has been swapped for 21 vertical lamellas made of oak or synthetic materials, while an acoustic-lens tweeter adorns the top.

Electronista said that as expected, the 18s represent a step up from the 17s in terms of style and audio quality. The acoustic lens helped us maintain a well-balanced listening experience while far away from the "sweet spot," in a room that didn't seem particularly well suited for demonstrating high-end audio gear.

Reviewers who have played with the new speakers said that although the 17 and 18 were able to be pushed to surprisingly high volume without distortion, size does matter when filling out the low end.

The BeoLab 19 comes in a dodecahedron shape, featuring dual woofers and an aluminium shell inspired by jet engines. 
Pricing and availability in Australia have not been announced.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
