Bang & Olufsen Beolab 50 Loudspeaker
Probably one of the most stylish speakers you’ll ever see. Gone are the old solid lines and fixed structures from the age of hi-fi speakers; instead this Bang & Olufsen is sleek. How sleek? It looks like it came straight out of a J. J. Abrams sci-fi reboot sans the fandom letdown. Its warm oak and aluminium surfaces add that desirable soupçon of Sophistication. With 2,100 watts of precision power divided between seven dedicated amplifiers, the Beolab 50 is really so much more than just a pretty piece of machinery.
