These loudspeakers may look like visitors from a futuristic age, but the thinking behind the BeoLab 5 is very much rooted in the here and now. That thinking is called Acoustic Lens Technology.
With traditional stereo loudspeakers, the best seat in the house for listening purposes is midway in front of them. Acoustic Lens Technology has changed that: the two aluminum discs house small acoustic lenses, which disperse mid- and high-range frequencies horizontally into the room. This means that you get the best possible sound wherever you are sitting. You also get 2,500 watts of crystal-clear digital amplification, automatically adjusted by the built-in bass calibration system to make the most of the rooms's acoustics. But enough about the technology-this is about experience. BeoLab 5 is about as close as you can get to a live performance in your living room.
