The naked sound

Purity of emptiness

‘The Cube' is an empty 12 x 12 x 13 meter room. A dizzying experience. It is the very heart of Bang & Olufsen's quest for perfect instrumental and vocal precision.

’The Cube’ allows us to measure the purity of a speaker's performance without interference or reflections from floor, ceiling or wall.

Playmaker has also passed these exacting tests. It’s performance measured and analyzed against our entire range of Bang & Olufsen speakers.

A digital sensation

Big sound

It takes your digital music library to a whole new level of sound quality. The powerful, high performance Digital Audio Converter is fine tuned for even the most demanding Bang & Olufsen speakers. Leaving you to enjoy the absolute finest quality that digital music has to offer.

A digital symphony
