Bang & Olufsen has partnered with Origin Acoustics to produce a new line of architectural high-end in-wall and ceiling speakers. The collaboration, announced at CEDIA 2016, comprises Celestial in-ceiling models and Palatial in-wall speakers (pictured above and below), the latter available in a range of interiors-friendly grills and covers. The partnership sees the Danish brand handling design, with Origin contributing engineering.

“Origin Acoustics is highly appreciated and respected in the installation industry for providing high-quality solutions that cater to the specific needs of the installers. At the core Bang & Olufsen and Origin Acoustics share the same values when it comes to fundamental acoustics of wanting to give customers superior and accurate sound quality and a dedication to engineering performance while also considering aesthetics,” says Christoffer Østergaard Poulsen, Sr. Director, Home Integration.

The Celestial in-ceiling speaker range is designed for discrete background music listening, while the Palatial in-wall speakers are for two-channel duties or home cinema.

“Bang & Olufsen’s modern electronics design have been, are and will be a step above the rest in terms of luxury aesthetics,” adds Nick Berry, Origin Acoustics Executive VP.

To support the speakers, Bang & Olufsen has introduced a new 300W stereo amplifier, the BeoAmp 2, to supplement its existing BeoAmp 16 16-channel multizone amplifier. The company has also updated its BeoLink Gateway with new controller functionality, and revamped the user interface of the BeoLink app.
