Bang & Olufsen unites
elegant design with amazing acoustic authenticity in new high-end wireless
Bang & Olufsen’s latest floor speaker, BeoLab 20, produces
breathtaking musical clarity in a cultivated demonstration of power and control.
And with Immaculate Wireless Sound built into the elegant design, now there’s
even less that stands between you and music the way the artist intended it to
Copenhagen, May 15 2014
With its minimalist lines and relatively small footprint, the new BeoLab 20 gives
little indication of the expansive musicality that lies within. But turn on the
music – and turn up the volume – and even the most discerning music aficionados
can prepare to discover just how good their favourite tracks can actually
According to Michael Langager,
Vice President Core Business, Bang & Olufsen’s latest floor speaker is the
result of an innovation process that draws on the company’s design traditions and
on its extensive experience in creating audio systems for high-end automobiles.
“BeoLab 20 demonstrates everything we’ve learned about engineering radically
good sound into small spaces over the last 10 years,” he says. “With these
speakers, we give sophisticated technology a very simple challenge: make great
music sound exactly the way the artist intended it to be heard.”
Cultivated power and an innovative new sound engine
The all-new digital sound
engine provides more processing power than any other speaker of this size. Why
should a music lover care? Because the authoritative new engine lets Bang &
Olufsen’s audio engineers push performance to the limit to deliver outstanding
definition, authenticity and dynamics and make the music come alive.
“Among other things, we’ve
done a lot of fine-tuning on our digital sound processor to eradicate resonances,
measure magnet temperatures extremely precisely, and tune three outstanding drivers
to reproduce sound as naturally as possible,” says Langager. “Combined with
the active speaker’s huge power reserves, BeoLab 20 delivers exquisite results in
the midrange, and also tight, controlled bass with an incredibly strong punch.

Designed for sound – with sophisticated simplicity
“BeoLab 20 is a beautiful
example of Bang & Olufsen’s form-follows-function design creed,” says Marie
Kristine Schmidt, Vice President of
Brand, Design and Marketing.
“Every aspect of the speaker’s form has its acoustic reason to be and all the
parts come together in a sculptural minimalism that enhances any room.”
The iconic Acoustic Lens
tweeter, a tour de force of metalworking craftsmanship, spreads high
frequencies evenly around the room in a full 180 degrees. So whether your
favourite listening position is the sofa or a lounge chair, your spot is the
sweet spot. The aluminium base lifts the cabinet to float gracefully above the
floor – and enhances bass performance. Even the back of the speaker is visually
intriguing for a reason: the soft-black cooling grill disperses heat so the
powerful drivers can deliver everything they’ve got, without overheating.
All of the sound, none of the wires
Bang & Olufsen was the first manufacturer to incorporate
the groundbreaking WiSA platform, and BeoLab 20 is the company’s latest
Immaculate Wireless Sound speaker. With WiSA’s robust, multi-channel digital
audio streaming, BeoLab 20 lets you enjoy premium listening experiences without
compromising the integrity of your interior design.
The new BeoLab 20 is available
now at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide.
