Achieving a full cinematic experience with one’s home entertainment system is no mean feat, especially when space is concerned. If you’re not keen on cluttering your living room with satellite speakers, then Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Stage soundbar is an elegant solution to consider.
The Beosound Stage is Bang & Olufsen’s first soundbar product, but carries that signature B&O quality engineering nonetheless. Coming in a streamlined enclosure, the Beosound Stage carries 11 custom speakers. Each driver has a dedicated 50-watt amplifier and an active three-channel DSP-based loudspeaker to create an immersive listening experience.
B&O’s premiere soundbar also utilises Dolby Atmos for multi-channel audio. The three-dimensional soundstage is augmented by a profiled list of listening modes such as “Night Listening”. The Beosound Stage also offers the ToneTouch equaliser for greater fine-tuning to individual tastes.
Aside from audio fidelity, Bang & Olufsen’s products have always been well-regarded for their Scandinavian design. The Beosound Stage sports a simple, geometrical shape and uses natural materials in its housing construction for a seamless integration into the household. Its frame comes in three options: natural aluminium, bronze tone aluminium and smoked oak. With the latter comes the additional feature of traditional dovetail joints — a nod to fine Scandinavian cabinetry.
The Beosound Stage is fully compatible with the modern smart home. It works seamlessly with streaming technologies like Chromecast, Airplay 2 and Bluetooth, and remains usable even after the TV is switched off.
The price for sheer audial pleasure? Bang & Olufsen’s Beousound stage is priced at S$2,500 for the aluminium and bronze tone version, and S$3,500 for the smoked oak.
