BeoLab Penta - top quality went higher
These tall and elegant speakers were developed according to a totally new acoustic principle. They sounded just as magnificent as they looked. Because there were no parallel surfaces in the pentagonal cabinet, the design reduced the internal standing waves and reflection; it was a simple and beautifully effective way of eliminating distortion. The cabinet provided the ideal conditions for the loudspeakers. It was an acoustically 'dead' construction, with a moulded inner cabinet surrounded by a stainless steel exterior. Whatever the dimensions of your room, and regardless of the furnishings, BeoLab Penta always sounded wonderful. It also needed very little floor space; head room was all that's required!
BeoLab Penta was the top-of-the-line speaker from Bang & Olufsen. It was around from the late 'eighties to the mid-1990s and was upgraded several times. The last version of the active Penta was the Penta 3. In the late 1980's - when the Penta range was introduced - there was also a passive version,Beovox Penta. But since Bang & Olufsen decided in the 1990s just to concentrate on active speakers, these and some other models, such as the Beovox 4500 and most of the RedLine speakers, were discontinued.
