FrontRunners: Sound Solution

<< Back to Robb Report, August 2013

    For rooms in which home-theater audio is too much and a basic two-channel stereo is not enough, the new Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 14 multichannel audio system (www.bang-olufsen.com) is just right. The system, priced from $4,000, comprises four or five 6-inch-wide circular satellite speakers that can be mounted on walls or stands—the optional fifth speaker serves as a center-channel unit—and a 20-inch-tall conical subwoofer that acts as a digital integrated amplifier.
