Three years in the making, BeoLab 90 is the culmination of the wildest dreams of Bang & Olufsen’s acoustics department; creating the future of sound. BeoVision 90 is a powerful digital loudspeaker built for optimum precision in sound, and featuring 18 state-of-the-art loudspeaker drivers placed in carefully defined locations and directions to deliver maximum performance.
This speaker contains a multitude of technologies – it´s a perfect mix of world-class design and acoustics. It provides you with clarity, range, and a sound staging that is second-to-none. BeoLab 90 features an impressive 360-degree design and a variety of settings to give you mind-blowing sound, regardless of its placement, the room, or your listening position. BeoLab 90 is fitted with Bang & Olufsen’s new Active Room Compensation technology that makes up for the impact of your room, your furniture, the placement of the loudspeakers, and the location of the listening position.
The loudspeaker packs a combination of 14 channels of the latest generation ICEpower amplifiers – a compact and highly efficient platform developed by Bang & Olufsen – and four additional class D amplifiers – all customized for BeoLab 90s specific requirements. In total, the amplifiers can deliver up to 8200 watts per loudspeaker.
BeoLab 90 delivers the sound where you want it. With loudspeaker drivers placed in various directions, you can use the Beam Direction Control to steer the sound radiation to your favourite listening location. Control the settings of your BeoLab 90 by using the Bang & Olufsen remote or by using the dedicated app on your phone. It is easy to control the beam width and direction. In addition, you can pre-program all of BeoLab 90’s features, and save presets that best suit your preferences for different occasions.
Finally, the design is based on a complex aluminium cabinet totalling more than 65 kg, so the structure is rock solid. In a subtle contrast to the massiveness of the loudspeakers, the outer ‘skin’ is made of acoustically transparent fabric, stretched like sails hovering in front of the driver units. The curved wooden base visually lifts the large structure from the floor, making BeoLab 90 appear to float in your home.
And, the price – $40,000 per unit. Of course, wanting to buy a pair, that will cost you more than BMW 3 Series!
