Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 18 Oak Wireless Speakers

Description

BeoLab 18 is the culmination of acoustic perfection, a heritage of authentic sound that has been Bang & Olufsen’s hallmark since 1925. BeoLab 18 is a timeless speaker for the enjoyment of future generations. The speaker is crafted from exquisite materials with uncompromising attention to detail.

BeoLab 18’s most striking visual feature is no doubt its lamella front, available in black and white composite as well as solid oak. These lamella choices give decorators a range of options that all work beautifully with designer Torsten Valeur’s minimalist column of anodized aluminum. Look closely, and you’ll see that Valeur has tweaked the sculptural silhouette of its predecessor, the now-classic BeoLab 8000, in ways that push the boundaries of craftsmanship.

The speaker balances on a cone of extruded aluminium that seems barely to touch the floor – either when hanging on the wall or standing on the rock-solid cast iron base. Twenty-one lamellas wrap lightly around the speaker to open it to the eye as well as the ear. And with Bang & Olufsen’s distinctive acoustic lens tweeter floating above, the “sweet spot” is yours no matter where you are in the room. This form-follows-function design is what allows Bang & Olufsen to use lamella in front of the two main drivers and still produce crystal-clear high frequencies. Combining wood and aluminium is clearly a hint at classic Bang & Olufsen design cues, while embracing the future with a major break-through in innovation through the new wireless technology.

BeoLab 18’s slender lines belie an impressive array of all-digital components specifically engineered to provide larger-than life sound from a modest volume. Two custom-made 4-inch midrange/woofer drivers run in parallel and are powered by separate 160-watt class D amplifiers. The digital sound engine is custom-tuned to deliver convincing performance that brilliantly overcomes the complexities presented by placing the lamella in front of the two main drivers. The all-new engine also comprises thermal protection, Adaptive Bass Linearisation and a room position switch, so BeoLab 18 sounds amazing no matter what you play on it or where you place it.

Wood has always been an important aspect of Nordic architecture and furniture design, and modern interest in new and innovative ways to use this precious living matter has never been greater.
