Wireless speakers need only have less wires than their conventional cousins to meet the criteria of their category, but Danish AV specialist Bang & Olufsen always goes a step beyond with its products, and its latest BeoLab range marries cable-free personality with great looks.
The new speakers start at $3990, and present with unique designs that will command centre stage in your home.
It’s the product we’ve been waiting to arrive for around ten years, since the fledging OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology first appeared in select car entertainment head-units, smartphones and cameras. Now, large-screen OLED televisions are finally a reality, and they are simply breathtaking.
You’ll need around $12,000 to buy into the technology before it becomes mainstream, and the price of entry earns you images that pop, with colours that are amazing and contrast that goes way beyond the conventional measures applied to LED technology.
Essentially, it’s a dedicated IMAX system for the home, and it comes with a steep price because it required two 4K projectors, a special design for the seating, and 7.1 surround. Oh, and some of those amazing IMAX movies.
If the ‘money no object’ IMAX-at-home concept is too rich for your blood, LG’s laser-based projector system is an alternative that brings a short-throw projection system to your entertainment room for just $9,000.
Comprising a special 100 inch screen and a projector that uses a laser as light source, the system is unique for being able to display stills and video in broad daylight, with the lights full-on. Resolution is Full HD rather than the 4K Ultra High Def standard we’re beginning to see in projectors, but we expect this to change in 2014.
