SURROUNDED BY MAGNIFICENT SOUND

Ever since film’s transition from silent to sound, Bang & Olufsen has been dedicated to immersing audiences in the ultimate fusion of moving imagery with authentic sound.
Surround sound philosophy
In the same way that cinema captivates the imagination, true home surround should overwhelm the senses with clarity and depth, losing you in the moment, blissfully unaware of time or place. Bang & Olufsen has been pioneering and refining the synergy of sound and image since the move from silent film. We are dedicated to delivering experiences with the same intensity and passion regardless of whether you're watching a film, concert or tennis match. The sophisticated algorithms in a Bang & Olufsen television go through countless calculations every second to ensure an optimal mix of sight and sound. All our televisions and speakers are compatible so, whichever speaker you choose, you're guaranteed a consistent, exceptional surround sound performance for your home.
Sound for your senses
Bang & Olufsen's acoustic, electrical and mechanical engineers calibrate and fine-tune every component to ensure perfect working harmony. The result is stunning surround sound that maintains constant clarity and power throughout the entire room. Sound is fluid and precise. Loving, on-screen lips should whisper through the centre-speaker with intimate clarity. A plane, passing overhead, should travel from the medium to rear speakers while the subwoofer, dedicated to bringing that extra power in the low frequencies, should roar with powerful explosions. Your favourite film will unearth countless unexpected delights in Bang & Olufsen surround sound. The crystal clear audio sharpens the senses, bringing back the joy of watching it for the first time, all over again.
The road to sensory surround sound
If you are considering buying a Bang & Olufsen TV, you're well on the way to the ideal surround sound setup. All our current TVs have the option of a built-in surround sound receiver and either come with an integrated center speaker or give you the chance to choose the setup that’s perfect for your needs.

One subwoofer
The subwoofer is dedicated to enhancing low frequencies. Picking a spot for one is fairly straightforward as the human ear can’t distinguish the origin of a sound below 80 Hertz.

WHEN FILM GOT SOUND

Ever since film's transition from silent to sound, Bang & Olufsen has been dedicated to immersing audiences in the ultimate fusion of moving imagery and authentic sound.
In from the first act
In 1924, a young Peter Bang visited New York and witnessed one of the first screenings of film with sound. The experience made a huge impression. Back in Denmark cinema was still being accompanied by an organ player or mechanical gramophone and so Peter Bang immediately saw huge opportunities for this new electronic paradigm. The unprecedented efficiency of Bang & Olufsen's amplifiers and speakers magnetized directly from the DC mains were exactly what Danish cinema needed to pack their halls with people and, in 1928, Bang & Olufsen presented their first film sound solution under the name Bofa. Word of Bofa's impact on Danish cinemas soon spread abroad and Bang & Olufsen were awarded the Diplôme de Grand Prix in Bruxelles in 1935 for their ground-breaking film sound system.
The hunt for natural sound
The overwhelmingly positive response to films with sound soon highlighted that existing methods for recording sound were now the weak link in the production process. Urgent innovation was needed if the cinema experience was to reach new heights. Always after cleanest, natural sound, Bang & Olufsen immediately started developing and manufacturing sound recording equipment. Bang & Olufsen was also instrumental in helping movie theatres with architectural and acoustic changes that would help prepare them for the coming revolution. Since these early, pioneering days, Bang & Olufsen has continued its uncompromising commitment to challenging contemporary expectations. Bang & Olufsen products not only harness the latest technologies and materials but also changes in human behaviour and the ever shifting demands upon our homes. It is the spirit that defines our past, present and future.
