The B&O Beolab 28 are also more than just wireless speakers for home stereo, they are also WiSA speakers which massively simplify home theater sound by omitting the speaker cables.

    After watching a video on that “measurement guy’s” channel today, it’s completely refreshing to watch your videos. Your channel will keep growing, keep it up 👍

  2. TheLWebb100 on November 1, 2021 at 11:24 am

    If the Formation Duo’s were like a thousand dollars cheaper and came with analog inputs I’d be all over it!

  3. Tomislav Vuger on November 1, 2021 at 11:26 am

    Come on Mads Buchardt, send them those A500, we know you have them in stock 😛

    I have B&O store in my neighbourhood and I’m fascinated every time I pass by how beautiful everything inside is 🙂
    If I had the funds I could definitely have just those two (or a few more) and stop looking for that something better which includes a lot more gear and cables

  4. MaZEEZaM on November 1, 2021 at 11:31 am

    These are an ultra modern design that isn’t necessarily going to look right in many people’s homes. However, if you have a modern home then this design would look pretty awesome. Sadly, I don’t 😭

  5. Luke Rabin on November 1, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Some might say, the role of the audiophile is to prop up inefficient companies by buying expensive, overpriced equipment to show off to other audiophiles that you overspent on gear to show you could overspend. Phew!

  6. M Sadeeq on November 1, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Your reaction on this stereo speaker is amazing and, this is one of the best to enjoy as a rich person.

  7. Jack Kinman on November 1, 2021 at 11:32 am

    “Idc that it’s not ruler flat. I measured it with my ears and it sounds brilliant” 😂😂 greatest quote of all time

  8. Snarky Trucker on November 1, 2021 at 11:32 am

    Do you think the Beolab 28s would work well in a Learjet on a weekend jaunt to a Hawaiian bungalow? Asking for a friend. 🙂

  9. Ti Phill on November 1, 2021 at 11:33 am

    This would be a better speaker review if we could hear them to get a sense of their sound and fidelity 👍😎

  10. Vikas Sheth on November 1, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Even if they don’t have big foot print, the money print made my eyes see stars so clear I that I wouldn’t need a telescope!

  11. EME IVI on November 1, 2021 at 11:35 am

    I have been waiting on this. Thank you Andrew for doing what you do, this was AWESOME! I have several of there products an I just love there build quality, timeless modern designs, and sound signature. I was considering the McIntosh MC152 with KEFF R11’s in a 2channel setup but if this beautiful versatile Star Trek BEOLAB 28 sounds that good…

  12. SpirallingOut on November 1, 2021 at 11:35 am

    …aaaand they’re $20k here. LOL great review though.

    Real peace of art, pleasure for the eyes & ears 😍 but way above my pay grade 😢. I still enjoy visit a B&O svhow room from time to time and dream about me winning the lottery🥰

  15. oldschoolfunkster1 on November 1, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Seriously…how many of us could afford these? Or even want to spend that much money on just speakers.
    The search continues.

  16. David Morgen on November 1, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Send em to G.R R esearch,modify em?

  17. mcgreedy01 on November 1, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Everything you’ve described about these speakers that you like, leads me to believe that you need to review the.Bose 901 VI (accurately set up with the required amount of powder – at least 300W per channel). I think you’ll be positively amazed at the performance.

  18. P G on November 1, 2021 at 11:39 am

    House CURVE ! Makes total sense…. a-la house sound ! Always wondered about DSP’s… reminds me of the days of graphic equalizers ?

  19. DrawTheLine35 on November 1, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Knowing B&O products and their price points, I thought I had a decent idea of the price on these… I was wrong. Lol

    I’d love to get a demo of these and hear for myself what magic B&O has gotten out of this unusual form factor.

  20. Aussie Rob on November 1, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Could be a costly mistake if you get them home and find out you don’t like the sound. I am quite happy to have separates. Also, i am not a fan of digital manipulation.The purpose of an audio system for me is to experience the closest approach to the original sound.

  21. Rick A on November 1, 2021 at 11:44 am

    While expensive; in the realm of ‘high/higher end’ audio, not so expensive especially considering they replace a lot of equipment. I love my B&O Stage (thank you for the recco btw); and the DSP implementation by B&O is shocking as well as the holographic space even the sound bar makes. Having said all that however, I’m wary of going too deep with any products that are fully reliant on apps or connectivity; unless history changes, the shelf life has an expiration date. Aside, gorgeous.. I need to hear them.

  22. Prof. Universe on November 1, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Hey Andrew first of all Realy great videos… I love it!
    But my question is rather off topic.
    So did you ever heard about the advance Paris my connect 150? Further more from audio physic especially the classic 8. Audio physic is a company from Germany near my location in the "sauerland".

    I have the kef q750 and a denon amp today but when I experienced the combo my connect 150 with the classic 8 it was like I have never heard music in my live.
    All the things you describe I your videos are on point and that with such a low price in comparison to the bang & olufson for example.

    It would be great if you can review one of these products or just give your opinion if you know something about them.

    Greetings from Germany

  23. MaZEEZaM on November 1, 2021 at 11:45 am

    I really enjoy your reviews but I do wish you included the price at the time of filming, even if its in US dollars, given I use Australian dollar, it would allow us to not only know if we can afford what you are reviewing, we can also more easily compare the item to that we know about within a particular value group.

  24. John Griffith on November 1, 2021 at 11:45 am

    All WISA systems support up to 8 channels. I have been working with WISA & Summit to develop integrated amps and separate receivers all using WISA technology for up to a 5.1.2 Atmos system. B&O is seeking a 4.1.2 configuration. It isn’t yet available.

  25. Bogdan Grigore on November 1, 2021 at 11:45 am

    How this compare with Sony HT A9?

  26. TheLWebb100 on November 1, 2021 at 11:45 am

    A lot of these HiFi products are too overpriced and esoteric for me, this would be the LAST thing I’d buy!

  27. Dean Rivers on November 1, 2021 at 11:49 am

    For all of your high praise of this speaker, how could it compete with tube equipment?

  28. Don Vittorio Sierra on November 1, 2021 at 11:49 am

    I would gladly ditch everything if an all in one can sound the way I like. In fact, after being an audiophile for more than 30 years I don’t want separates anymore if it can be avoided.

  29. Luke Rabin on November 1, 2021 at 11:50 am

    I’m sure they’re great, but my opinion, too often validated over 30-40 years of listening is that they are all too often form over function. Look beautiful, sound quite good, but just too often too overpriced.

  30. Leapy 99 on November 1, 2021 at 11:50 am

    For me the purpose of my audio system is to be simply he enjoyable to listen to. Yes I’d ditch everything for a pair of speakers like this. Annoyingly I could afford to do that as well, but I could never justify it to myself!

  31. William Zame on November 1, 2021 at 11:51 am

    When you say "less expensive" you are sort of understating the difference; the BeoLab 28’s are 3-5 times the price of some of the others.

  32. MaZEEZaM on November 1, 2021 at 11:51 am

    I have been burned in the past by pretty expensive powered Kef speakers and ever since I hesitate in wanting to risk buying them again given the premium you pay for powered speakers.

  33. Jason Sypher on November 1, 2021 at 11:52 am

    I bought the Buchardt A500. Excellent speaker system. I think these go too far for me but I admire your ability to keep and open mind and open ears.

  34. Giddy Up on November 1, 2021 at 11:55 am

    Can’t wait for the touch controls & louver drives to stop working, and they will.

  35. Kevin Bartlett on November 1, 2021 at 11:55 am

    Great review, I followed the link to have a look at the product page. I then swore out loud when I saw the price.

  36. i3kel on November 1, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Why don’t you think you’ll hear the buchardt’s?

  37. Kin Poon on November 1, 2021 at 11:59 am

    The ultimate Lasko fan.

  38. steven on November 1, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    nah. And yeah, i don’t need to see a graph to hear something good either.

  39. Duranarts on November 1, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    I feel like I’d be paying too much for looks… Not for me.

  40. Thegameradam _ on November 1, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Peep those lintons!

  41. J L on November 1, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    On the class-D amps – Not all are created equally, B&O were one of the pioneers in using class-D and do it very well, many used in Hi-Fi, especially at the "affordable" end of the spectrum are not so good, sounding wooden in the bass and dry in the treble. I say this as someone from a company who make some very popular active speakers and made the comparisons before choosing class-A/B in ours!

  42. Huho on November 1, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    After spending hundreds on cables and thousands on speakers and gear, these would have to sound absolutely fantastic for me to ditch everything. That being said, a streamlined experience combined with a lot of tech that these have does sound fantastic, not to even mention how clean and sleek they look. I would love to get a chance to listen to these speakers extensively and test out their capabilities before making a buying decision, but I could definitely see myself pulling the trigger if I was truly happy with their functionality and sound. The oak-wood curtains look really really cool.

  43. David Jamison on November 1, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    I’d like to audition these somewhere.

  44. Gray Fool on November 1, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    I’m kinda looking at different types of system mainly because of practically issues. Living in a small apartment means space is an issue, of course. I do not want to lose out on sound in any way though. These are well out of my price range though. Shame, it would be very intereto try them.

  45. X32i on November 1, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Please review the totem Tribe Towers

  46. Dave Andrea Howard on November 1, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Omigawd! GINGER ROOT! It’s so much fun!

  47. blastfromtheeast on November 1, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    The speakers look stunning and I imagine they sound the same too. Intrigued by how yu described it as highly transparent. Great review.
    I’d NOT replace my separates (main listening gear) with an all-in-one setup like Beolab 28. . . BUT . . for living room speakers they look gorgeous.

  48. Funky' Furballs on November 1, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    They’re interesting and would love to hear these… but I’m getting that IKEA vibe… modern, assembly required, but the price is NOT! For about the same price, you can have Totem Tribes and a McIntosh Integrated. Thanks for the review!

  49. Realtis Fadel on November 1, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Great review and impressive speakers! When you showed the closeups of the touch sensitive controls, not sure if they had a sticker or just dust on them but it looks like they get dirty easily with dust particles and fingerprints.

  50. Claes Hiort on November 1, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Awesome review as always. The speakers looks stunning in your setup. I have listened to them briefly in a B&O store and they are impressive. They look much nicer in the flesh. (BTW, is that a 77" on the wall?)
