Luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen has launched a new stereo speaker that offers connected features to match its high-end acoustics.
The Beolab 28 is a slimline wireless speaker that is designed to be placed anywhere in your home, with Active Room Compensation allowing it to adapt its bass to its surroundings.
It has an integrated subwoofer, front tweeter and three 3-inch full-range drivers, allowing it to deliver the audio quality you‚Äôd expect from the name and four-to-five figure price tag.
The Beolab 28 will also be made compatible with Beolink Multiroom later this year, 2021 through an automatic update, and can be paired with a Bang & Olufsen TV using Powerlink or Wireless Powerlink.
The speaker can be controlled using a simple touch interface on the top, which lights up when approached thanks to inbuilt proximity sensors.
The interface allows owners to play/pause, skip and increase/decrease volume, and there are four ‚Äėfavorite‚Äô buttons which can be set to radio stations or Spotify playlists.
In terms of connectivity, there's dual-band Wi-Fi on board, as well as a pair of Ethernet connections if you want to wire the high-end speakers up.
The Beolab 28 comes in a selection of three different aluminum case colors, and either fabric or wooden speaker covers in a selection of colors.
The fabric finish costs from $14,750 and the wooden version from $16,500.
