The BeoSound Shape comes in a set of eight tiles – 4 speakers, 1 core and amplifier each plus two dampers at a cost of about €4,000 (£3,400). Of course the open-ended design of these modern speakers leaves room for more tile fittings if you wish. The tiles are purported to be sound absorbing. The dampening material could even be removed and the empty case could be used to cover plug sockets.

Bang & Olufsen have designed the BeoSound with an algorithm called ‘Band on the Wall’ that easily spread audio acoustics across the full width of these speakers no matter the position. The comprehensive technology of these modern speakers is an invaluable addition to the genre of contemporary innovations.
