BEST HOME THEATER SPEAKERS IN THE WORLD - BAR NONE
Planar Magnetic Ribbons
Our planar ribbon technology provides the incredible detail, clarity and pinpoint imaging that make listening to BG loudspeakers so realistic and lifelike. A favorite of audiophiles for decades, the technology of today's planar ribbon makes them as reliable and robust as conventional transducers. The planar ribbon driver is an evolution of ribbon-based designs that were first conceived in the 1930s where early designs were costly, fragile and often unreliable.
Over the past fifteen years, BG has actively engaged in in-depth research and led the industry in solving important problems associated with the construction of planar ribbon based loudspeaker systems. BG Corporation was founded in 1994 with the goal of becoming the world's leading source of planar ribbon loudspeakers for Home Theater, Audio and Professional applications. A combination of patented technology and passionate dedication has allowed BG to achieve the true potential of the planar ribbon as the perfect transducer. more...

Line Source Technology
The cone-type class of loudspeaker produces a characteristic radiation pattern that is best described as “point-source,” with output level diminishing rapidly as the distance increases between the listener and speaker. The classic expression of this phenomenon is that sound pressure level is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. The practical acoustical effect is that there is a 6 decibel (4-fold) drop in level with every doubling of distance.
Line-source radiators like the BG's Radia "LA" series do not suffer the same physical and psychoacoustic limitations, as they are characterized by sound pressure levels that are linearly inversely proportional to the distance, resulting in a 3 decibel reduction in level with every doubling of distance rather than the 6 decibel drop with point-source radiators. more...
