Brand New, Still in Original Box.
Now the reputible hi-fi developer, B & O has engineered some speakers here that have been called by some, "The best speakers ever made".
Besides its four-way driver lineup and an intriguing method of controlling sound dispersion, the 5 also includes several thousand (?!?!??! Yep several thousand) watts of amplification and some very clever digital signal processing.
The big bonus of a cone shape is that it enables a relatively compact and visually discreet design to accommodate a 15" downfiring bass driver, mounted in the base.
The engineering and complex build of these speakers would allow them to play every frequency of sound.
Absolute power without corruption
How do you fit a full symphony orchestra between the sofa and the easy chair? The BeoLab 5 may not appear small compared with other Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers, but its physical size is in fact negligible when compared to the sound it delivers. This is where the 2500 watts of digital amplification comes in. With these power reserves, we can coax a bigger, clearer, more realistic and potentially much louder sound out of something relatively small. In simple terms, the sky is the limit.
It listens and learns
The acoustic properties of your listening room play a very important role in the quality of the sound from high-end speakers – as do their placement relative to walls and furniture. But who wants to install new walls and floors or change seating arrangements just to get the most from their speakers? Luckily, digital technology from Bang & Olufsen known as Adaptive Bass Control will listen and analyse "the sound of the room" and tailor the speakers' performance accordingly. With BeoLab 5, it is as easy as pressing a button on top of one of the speakers. The process takes just two minutes and can be repeated easily – in case you move your speakers or install new floors because you want to.
