At a press gathering in downtown Manhattan, B&O held its global press event announcing three new speakers.
The BeoLab 17 is Bang & Olufsen’s first take at a high-end, wireless WiSA standard compact loudspeaker. Created from one sheet of anodized aluminum, it utilizes no welding, and is relatively small, but aims to produce big sound for big bucks (about $3,990 per set).
According to B&O CEO Tue Mantoni, the grille padding on the front of the loudspeaker can be removed to suit one’s aesthetic tastes (called “broken ice”). And then, there’s more.
