After the speakers&#39; acoustic response has been checked to minimise distortion, cabinet resonances and diffraction effects, they&#39;re taken to a room for subjective listening tests &ndash; just to make sure they sound right to the human ear, across different genres of music.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Lovely. What&#39;s actually in them?</strong><br />Inside, you get a 10in woofer in a 18l enclosure, with two 160w class D amplifiers, a 5in midrange speaker ina a 4l enclosure with its own 160w class D amplifier, and a &frac34;in tweeter with &ndash; you guessed it &ndash; a 160w class D amplifier. The tweeter uses B&amp;O&#39;s nifty Acoustic Lens technology, designed to boost the size of the sweet spot and minimise floor and ceiling reflections. The speaker also packs also Bang &amp; Olufsen&#39;s Adaptive Bass Linearisation tech, which monitors the low end and reduces bass throughput in response to extreme peaks.</p> <p><strong>They&#39;re wireless?</strong><br />They are indeed. The BeoLab 20 packs a wireless WiSA receiver, so you can cut cord clutter. Sync it up with the new <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/bo/bang-olufsen-beovision-avant-4k-tv-follows-you-around-room/news" target="_blank">BeoVision Avant 4K TV</a>, for example, and the TV will recognise the speaker model and its placement in the room, and adapt its output accordingly.</p> <p><strong>How much does it cost? </strong><br />Take a deep breath and sit down; a single BeoLab 20 will set you back &pound;3748, with a pair costing &pound;7495. If you&#39;ve snapped up the BeoVision Avant 4K TV (a snip at &pound;5995), Bang &amp; Olufsen suggests setting it up with four BeoLab 20s.

It has some unique features, too &ndash; and Stuff ventured out to <a href="http://www.bang-olufsen.com/en" target="_blank">B&amp;O</a> headquarters in Struer to see them up close and personal.</p> <p><strong>Was it worth the trip? </strong><br />Oh yes. The BeoVision Avant is quite a sight &ndash; a sleek aluminium and glass affair with a 55in 4K screen. It&#39;s quite chunky &ndash; at 9.64cm deep, it&#39;s no slimline flatscreen &ndash; but a clever layered design creates a depth-masking illusion. Around the back, two sliding aluminium panels conceal the ports &ndash; and there are no visible screws to be found anywhere on the TV set. It&#39;s all done in the name of &quot;360-degree design&quot; &ndash; ensuring that the back of the set is as nice to look at as the front.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Why&#39;s that, then? Surely the screen is the bit I&#39;ll be watching. </strong><br />There&#39;s every chance that you&#39;ll be admiring the back of the Avant, thanks to its impressive party piece. Switch the set on, and it swivels to face one of three preset positions in the room on its motorised stand.</p> <p>There are three different stands, in fact &ndash; the most impressive is the floor stand, which features a rotating base and column. That means that the Avant can be tucked up against the wall, but will move out from the wall to face your chosen seating position; obviously, if you&#39;re in the market for one of these TVs, you have a massive lounge with a dining table in one corner and sofas in the other.</p> <p>The other stands are more simple; there&#39;s a hinged wall mount, and a table mount that lifts the set up from an angled resting position to vertical.</p> <p><strong>Sounds like quite a performance.&nbsp;</strong><br />It certainly is; switch the set on, and &quot;electronic curtains&quot; will part, revealing the screen &ndash; a standard feature on Bang &amp; Olufsen sets. New to the BeoVision Avant is the speaker array that drops down from the bottom of the screen, sliding apart to reveal the three-speaker setup. </p> <p>This being B&amp;O, no detail has been left to chance &ndash; the startup procedure has been timed so that the stand, the speaker array and the electronic curtains move at the same rate, completing their motion at the same time.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-3547297994001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="3547297994001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

But what about the specs? </strong><br />The Avant sports a 55in, 3840x2160 pixel LED panel, with local backlight dimming for clearer blacks and an anti-reflective glass screen. The screen on each set is calibrated using a 10-point factory measurement procedure, so if you don&#39;t like the screen on one set, you can fairly guarantee that you won&#39;t like any Avant &ndash; because they&#39;re all outputting the same picture.</p> <p>B&amp;O&#39;s also kitted out the Avant with Chromatic Room Adaptation. A dual light sensor unit on the top right of the set measures the light levels and colour tone of the ambient light, adjusting the white point of the picture to suit. So if the light in your room&#39;s reddish, it&#39;ll slowly dial up the red to keep the perceived colour on the screen neutral.</p> <p><strong>Sounds good.</strong><br />So does the Avant. That little speaker array packs in three 2in midrange speakers for left, right and centre channels. That means that dialogue can be fed through the centre channel, where the faces appear on screen &ndash; just like a cinema speaker system. There&#39;s also a 4in forward-facing woofer and a rear-facing 6.5in woofer, powered by a 60w class D amplifier. Depending on whether the TV&#39;s mounted on a wall or facing out into the room, the TV will adjust the bass to optimise performance and minimise distortion.</p> <p>If that isn&#39;t enough noise for you, there are 21 output channels (eight wireless, ten wired, and the TV&#39;s own three channels). You can connect a 7.1 surround sound system wirelessly; if you&#39;re using B&amp;O&#39;s own speakers, it&#39;ll recognise the model and adjust sensitivity, latency and bass sensitivity accordingly. And you can create up to 9 speaker groups, to suit your different viewing positions.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="If you&#039;re boring, you can choose the cabinet stand." alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoVision Avant" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-04_0.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="The Avant&#039;s speaker array." alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoVision Avant" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-03_0.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Does your sitting room look like this?

The BeoRemote 1 is milled from a single piece of aluminium, with a pleasing heft to it in the hand. It&#39;s designed for ease of use; common functions are placed for your thumb, while TV and Music buttons cycle through an array of presets. Want to fire up a movie, YouTube or Spotify? Just cycle through the TV or Music menu and it&#39;ll load up all your presets and launch.</p> <p><strong>Ah yes, apps. Is it a smart TV?</strong><br />Nope &ndash; rather than faffing about with proprietary smart TV software, B&amp;O has delegated; there&#39;s a space in the back that&#39;ll accommodate an Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV or Roku box &ndash; there&#39;s also a slot for an external HDD. It&#39;s a clever move, meaning that you&#39;ll be able to update the set indefinitely by just plugging in the latest smart TV box. Yes, it means shelling out an extra &pound;50-&pound;100 for smart TV capability, but let&#39;s be honest: if you&#39;re in the market for a Bang &amp; Olufsen TV, that&#39;s not going to make a dent in your bank account.</p> <p><strong>Yeah, about that &ndash; how much does it cost?</strong><br />Surprisingly little for a Bang &amp; Olufsen 4K TV, actually. You can pick one up in B&amp;O shops now for &pound;5995, though you&#39;ll have to pay extra for the stands. The motorised stands add an extra&nbsp;&pound;1195 to the price, while a static stand can be had for &pound;600.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/hot-stuff" target="_blank">More awesome Hot Stuff</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The BeoRemote 1 is also an effective melee weapon" alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoRemote 1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-02.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Hands-on with the Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoRemote 1" alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoRemote 1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-hands-on-02.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="If your decorations are chintzy, the TV actually makes a crying noise when you turn it on." alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoVision Avant" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-07_0.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="1200" height="900" title="The Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoVision Avant, just hangin&#039;" alt="Bang &amp; Olufsen BeoVision Avant" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-avant-08.jpg?1399702238" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Give us a twirl </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> B&amp;O Avant 4K TV follows you around the room </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/bo/bang-olufsen-beovision-avant-4k-tv-follows-you-around-room/news#comments 4K B&O BeoVision Avant Hot Stuff TVs Thu, 08 May 2014 12:28:56 +0000 Stephen Graves 1436764 at http://www.stuff.tv Bang & Olufsen takes on Sonos with Essence multi-room music streamer http://www.stuff.tv/ces-2014/bang-olufsen-s-essence-one-touch-remote-ll-simplify-music-playback-sonos-does/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> This pretty little thing looks set to give the dominant music streamer something to worry about </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Bang and Olufsen Essence" alt="Bang and Olufsen Essence" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/b-and-o-essence-system.jpg?1389381892" /> </div> </div> </div> <p dir="ltr">We tend to be wary when companies use the word &quot;revolutionary&quot; to describe their products and services.
