Creating perfect sound in a room meant for nothing but listening is one thing. It is a whole other ball game to create perfect sound in a room designed for living. BeoLab 90 is perhaps the world’s most advanced digital loudspeaker, providing unprecedented user control of its acoustic performance – adapting to your living space and preferred listening modes through intelligent design.
PERSONALISE YOUR OWN BEOLAB 90
Just as the speaker technology caters to your personal listening habits and lifestyle so does the design, which can be customised to perfectly match the surroundings of your home.
Powerful, precise and packed with all of our combined audio knowledge and very finest technology.
BeoLab 90 has 18 state-of-the-art Scan-Speak loudspeaker drivers placed in carefully defined locations and directions to deliver maximum performance in frequency, time and space.
The floor speaker packs a combination of 14 channels of the latest generation ICEpower amplifiers – a compact and highly efficient platform developed by Bang & Olufsen – and four additional class D amplifiers, all customised for the BeoLab 90. In total, the amplifiers can deliver up to 8,200 watts per loudspeaker.
Believe us when we say: This is as loud as you can possibly go without front row tickets for a stadium concert, and as detailed as you can possibly get without enjoying your albums in a professional recording studio.
THE INTELLIGENT LOUDSPEAKER
Giving BeoLab 90 its incredible ability to behave like completely different loudspeakers in different listening situations, required our acoustics department to develop and customise a range of intelligent technologies:
ACTIVE ROOM COMPENSATION
Resonances in your room, and boundary effects from your walls, affect the sound you get from your loudspeakers. BeoLab 90 is fitted with Bang & Olufsen’s new Active Room Compensation technology that makes up for the impact of your room, your furniture, the placement of the loudspeakers, and the location of the listening position.
This advanced technology guarantees you get a sensational sound experience, exactly where you want it. In other words, the speaker, and not the room, defines the sound.
BEAM WIDTH CONTROL
Almost like switching between a spotlight and a lightbulb, Beam Width Control gives you the power to narrow or widen the sound dispersion.
Narrowing the sound beam ensures a direct and precise delivery to your preferred listening spot. Invite friends to join you for a movie – just widen the beam and everyone shares the same experience. Or expand the beam to provide full 360-degree omnidirectional sound, if you are hosting a party.
BEAM DIRECTION CONTROL
Most loudspeakers are designed with a front and a back, with the sound radiating forwards. This is perfectly adequate when the listener is positioned directly in front of the speaker, but in a modern flexible living environment this is far from always the case.
To solve this challenge, Beam Direction Control lets you define one of five directions as the ‘acoustic front’, always keeping the listener front and centre of the sound.
TECHNOLOGY MADE SIMPLE
The power to harness the mighty BeoLab 90 lies right in the palm of your hand. Use either your BeoRemote One or the dedicated BeoLab 90 app to adjust the settings or to easily access your saved presets, ensuring an effortless listening experience in every situation.
You can even select presets and control BeoLab 90 directly from your other Bang & Olufsen products. Perfect when using a pair of BeoLab 90 to expand a movie experience on your BeoVision TV.
FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
BeoLab 90 is designed according to the overall idea that form follows function. The loudspeaker driver positions and orientations are defined by the acoustical requirements. The placement of the electronics’ cooling fins was chosen to ensure that the rising heat could have no impact on the sound experience.
The design is based on a complex aluminium cabinet totaling more than 65 kg, so the structure is rock solid. In a subtle contrast to the massiveness of the loudspeakers, the outer ‘skin’ is made of acoustically transparent fabric stretched like sails hovering in front of the driver units. The curved wooden base visually lifts up the large structure from the floor, making BeoLab 90 appear to float in your home.
Like no one else.
