Recently, Bang and Olufsen introduced its BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2 speakers along with its new BeoVision Horizon TV. The new 360-degree speakers and television, like most B&O products, look stylish and out of the mold of the norm. One the biggest feature of the BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2 besides the stylish looks and premium materials, is the sound. Due to their design, they can fill a room with sound in 360 degrees. The result is a more immersive listening experience. The BeoVision Horizon is a 4K UHD TV that offers a minimalist design. There is also an optional rolling stand that ads convenience and mobility.
BeoSound 1 & BeoSound 2 Overview
BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2 are similar, but they have a couple distinct differences. BeoSound 1 is a portable lightweight wireless speaker with a battery-driven option crafted for mobility. It has a small groove under the top to ensure a better grip when it’s lifted up and moved around. BeoSound 2 is its slightly bigger and more powerful. It needs a permanent power connection to produce excellent sound with great clarity.
For connectivity, BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2 can pair to other devices through AirPlay, Google Cast and Bluetooth. With these features, streaming music from a smartphone or tablet is a breeze.
Bang & Olufsen and B&O PLAY products can be easily linked with multi-room, and you can either play different music in different rooms or let the same sound flow throughout your home. In addition, AHT can connect all B&O devices into an existing Crestron control system for seamless audio control.
BeoVision Horizon Overview
The BeoVision Horizon comes in two different sizes, and in keeping with its less-is-more approach, neither size is particularly huge. The larger model is 48 inches, with the smaller model measuring 40 inches. Each model is equipped with a total of four HDMI 2.0 inputs, all of which support HDCP 2.2, allowing 4K sources like UHD Blu-ray players to be connected. Both the HEVC and VP9 codecs are included, allowing for 4K content to be streamed from Netflix, YouTube, and more.
For connectivity, the Horizon’s remote uses Bluetooth in addition to IR, meaning there is no need to point it at the TV in order for it to work. The stark design makes its mark here as well, with the remote crafted out of a single piece of aluminum. As with all connected home technology, the remote can be replaced and controlled using a Crestron home control solution.
