The new Beosound Emerge speaker from Bang & Olufsen is a compact, stylish device for placing on a table or shelf. The design was handled by Benjamin Hubert of Layer (this agency also helped create the Beosound Balance column).
The new Emerge is powered by wireless Wi-Fi technology. A single 37mm main speaker at an angle, a 14 mm soft dome tweeter, and a 100 mm woofer with dispersion in different directions are responsible for playback. According to B&O, these emitters are enough to “fill the room with sound”. The manufacturer used a number of proprietary technologies designed to ensure optimal sound.
Also worth noting is the ability to pair with another Emerge speaker for full stereo sound. In addition, the speaker can be connected to modern B&O network speakers in a multi-room format.
There is also support for AirPlay 2 and Chromecast, and later Beolink technology will be available. Among the” basic ” functions, the manufacturer highlighted Bluetooth 5.0, Ethernet and a combined Line-in/Optical connector.
According to the company, Beosound Emerge used selected natural materials, including wood, fabric and aluminum. The column can be controlled via sensors with indicators on the upper face.
In Europe, the new product has already appeared on sale. The cost of Beosound Emerge in the Gold Tone finish was 750 euros, and for an alternative, dark finish Black Anthracite was asked for 600 euros.
