When talking about the best sound systems in the world, Bang & Olufsen are definitely high on the list. Bang & Olufsen (B&O) is a Danish company that designs and manufactures audio products, television sets and telephones. It was founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, whose first significant product was a radio that worked with alternating current, when most radios were run from batteries. In 2004, the company opened a factory in the Czech Republic where it employs approximately 250 staff producing mainly audio products.
The great thing about them, in my opinion, is the fact that they share their stories with their customers. They show how they make their systems let people talk about the process and show great videos. Today I have one for the Beolab14, a great looking soundset but also a little strange looking to be honest. It looks like you’re putting some shaving mirrors in your home. But it will sure be something your visitors will talk about, and after you turn on your music, the party is complete.
For me, it doesn’t look like I can afford these speakers yet, not only for the money, but also for the space you need to enjoy this set. Check the video and images below to get an impression of what the Beolab14 exactly is.
