    Re: Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 90 speakers: "the future of sound"

    because obviously they are gonna cost a crapload of money, can we get a cheaper version with no fancy tech in it just for something that look cool and it is just a speaker?

    As with most of B&O stuff, vast case of form over function. Even if I could afford it I'd rather have a nice set of good electrostatics with a couple of decent subs.

    Integrated amps and DSPs, $30K-100K could possibly be higher.

    Re: Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 90 speakers: "the future of sound"

    Id have said, given that its B&O, and that amps are included, that its gonna cost you an arm AND a leg.

    Or £137,569-99.
    Cheers, David

    Not really.
    More a case of "If you don't ask the price, you're stupid!".

    Quadruple it. The Kef Muon is pretty old now and it's £70k RRP.

    Wow!

    Who'd have thought that the future of sound was designed by 1970's furniture manufacturers?
