Bang & Olufsen’s First Bluetooth Speaker Has Drivers On Both Sides, Packs Massive 180W

High-end audio companies have been sidestepping from Bluetooth streaming technology, but thanks to the promised of near CD-quality wireless streaming from the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology with aptX, we’re seeing mainstream premium audio maker Bower & Wilkins taking the plunge with the T7 and just days after, Bang & Olufsen also dishes out its own Bluetooth-enabled portable, dubbed BeoPlay A2.

Anyway, here it is, the Danish high-end audio equipment maker’s first ever Bluetooth speaker and it has a fair bit of features that differentiate itself from the horde of Bluetooth speakers, starting with the incorporation of drive units on both sides of the speaker.

Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 14 Surround Speaker System

when B&O said that their new Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 14 Surround Speaker System has a “competitive price point”, we took a hard look at its $3,995 starting price tag. hmmm. are we missing something here? by average joe’s standard, that number is hardly closed to “competitive”. being ‘just a surround speaker system’ the price is definitely over the top, but think B&O and high end audio, it may not be the case. in any case, we aren’t talking about run-of-the-mill system here. available as a 4.1 setup, as well as a 5.1 version, this ‘entry level’ offering from the Danish firm centers around a sculpted subwoofer which is home to a 280 watts 8″ downward-firing bass driver and contains connections for five 2.5″ active satellite speakers, each with its own 140 watts amplifiers and separate equalizers.
