Speaking of 3D sound, the Beosound Stage supports Dolby Atmos for more immersive movies and television. How well Atmos works in an all-in-one speaker like this can vary, so that will be something to keep an ear on if we're able to listen to this thing in the future. The soundbar also offers Bluetooth and WiFi in terms of wireless connectivity, with the latter powering handy features like Chromecast built-in, AirPlay 2 and multiroom listening. Like a lot of premium soundbars, the Beosound Stage has a few audio presets you can choose from: TV, Music, Movie, Night Listening or None. You can also employ B&O's ToneTouch tech from inside its app to change the EQ settings based on your mood. Fair warning though, these tweaks are based on feelings, so you select things like warm, excited, relaxed and bright instead of treble, bass and mids.
The Beosound Stage will go on sale in "late autumn" this year. When it does, the aluminum and bronze models will cost $1,750 (£1,250/€1,500) while the oak version will be $2,600 (£1,900/€2,250).
