    Hey Geoff,
    Congrats with your new baby. It looks very beautiful and probably – let’s say obviously – will sound great.

  2. The Beolab 50 appears to use a waveguide to control the beamwidth of the high frequencies, a resistive cardioid enclosure to control the beamwidth of the midrange array, and DSP beam steering to control the beamwidth of the low frequency array. Is that correct?

  3. Hi John,

    Close. The tweeter directivity is controlled by a movable waveguide. The midranges and the woofers use DSP-based beam steering, just like in the BeoLab 90.

    So, now it is official ;-(
    Congrats to you and the team responsible for this ‘beautiful beast’ ;-)

    Hi Geoff – and the team,

    Saw and listened to the new Beolab 50`s today. One word: Respect! A few things stood out; how well the speakers could produce the depth of a room -you could clearly identify the bass 1,5 meters behind and to the left of the singer, the drums further back.. Mighty impressive. The second thing articulation and depth of the bass and finally the sounded soft upon the ear year analytical. I woish you the best of luck with those babies – they are really worth it!

  6. Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the compliment! I’ll print it out and post it in the acoustics department for everyone to read.
