    • The reports are that the polar coverage of these loudspeakers are adjustable.  This would be a pretty big deal if you use your loudspeakers significantly away from the listening room walls--and well out on the floor of the room...which is not a very good approach from a engineering design perspective--but rather just expedient if "small tall loudspeakers" takes ultimate precedence over sound quality.   However, if you heard Klipsch Jubilees (which cost ~1/10th as much: about $85K to $8.5K--which is clearly a ridiculous difference), and 1/8th as much if you used the most expensive compression drivers available--TAD TD-4001s on the Jubilees), I think that you'd probably agree that the Jubilees--properly set up--would easily take the Beolab 90s for the type of sound quality that most users here value, i.e., clarity, realism, huge sound stage, dynamic performance, and unchanging performance at high SPL, etc.    However, there apparently are a lot of audiophiles that "want it the way that they want it" that would probably pick the Beolab 90s--I'm just clearly not one of those.  (These are the type of people that do not typically value accurate sound reproduction, but rather some artificial notion of sound quality.)   One thing that you might note: adjustable Beolab 90 polar performance is fairly easy to duplicate using a stereo pair of form/fit/function copies of the Beolab 90 configuration, and using a good set of DSP crossovers.  It still would be less than ~1/10th the price to do it that way...DIY.  (I'm not sure of the patent status of the Beolab 90s--whether that configuration has been patented by B&O, however.)   Chris
    • Made in Chino,oops I mean China So mine will go out right after the 5 year warranty? From what I recall looking inside the unit the power supply is a separate spec'd by Xilica but then outsourced unit and is probably easy to replace as long as they will sell/give you a new one .
    • I had a pair I regret selling.  I am tempted. I just bought a pair of Polk LSIM703’s and its prob a lateral move but....  
    • Blows my mind that these are still available.  I wish I could bring another set of speakers into this house without my wife kicking me to the curb.  GLWS!!

    • Thank you DWILAWYER,  The speakers are still for sale at the price of $650.00  Shipping the them is $45.00 each total of $90.00 for shipping Total cost $740.00 shipped any where in the 48 states. Send me a PM if you want them . 
    • Being these are not Klipsch and not horns I thought I would post this here. I was never a big fan of Bang and Olufsen products because of their modern look they have. I did have one of their turntable and it worked well for me. I just wanted to know if anyone of you have saw these speakers? 18 drivers and 8200 watts built in. They have some cool vids on youtube but I didn't want to break any rules by putting one on here. I could never afford a pair and not sure I would want to but they are suppose to be able to put the sweet spot were ever you are setting and have a omni mode to put out sound everywhere for parties and such. Just thought some may be interested .
