    B&O's new speaker "makes your room go away"

    Blurb with link to B&O site:

    fejrskov writes "The Danish audio/video company 'Bang & Olufsen' announced a new loudspeaker which promises to eliminate the bad influence from walls, floors and ceilings on the sound.

    That is very interesting. Did you sign up for a live demo?

      No. I don't have any euros, let alone 8,000 of them.

      Plus, don't believe these will work as advertised. The little microphone would need to come out on a snake and slither over to your intended seating position to properly balance the bass for the room.

      Still, it's a nice idea, they are real cool looking IMO, and the 4 way active with ICE amps is reeeeeeeeeeeaaally nice.

      Anyoen know, does B&O still use Vifa drivers?

        Interesting concepts. I couldn't make out a whole lot about the actual product though. Pretty web sites sometimes, seem to forget functionality, and showing a product well.

          The next to the last page in the little multipart presentation shows sort of an X-Ray picture of the speaker. No real clear shots of the whole thing though.

          But then B&O is all about style, not information.

          If you have any 1/48 scale jetson's cars, these are perfect for parking them on.

            Brandon, I think you nailed it with that statement. Beautiful products - that work well sometimes - but, generally not up to the standards of their looks.

            It seems that everyone is getting on the Mirage Omnipolar bandwagon. . . .
