Commercial Electronics is proud to be Vancouver’s premiere Bang & Olufsen retailer. B&O’s products put equal emphasis on design esthetics, audio quality and picture clarity.
Since 1925, Bang & Olufsen has been synonymous with the art of acoustic perfection. To this day B&O’s craftsmen still calibrate and tune every loudspeaker model by hand.
While accurate measurements are crucial, the human is ear is the final judge. In 1981, we assembled the first of our listening panels, bringing together an exceptional group of people carefully selected for their extraordinary hearing. Not only were they expected to distinguish subtle acoustic differences, they were also required to communicate exactly what they heard.
To achieve consistent test results, it was required that each test be conducted in exactly the same manner. Each speaker was hidden behind a curtain so that the listening panel never knew its exact size. If its performance fell below standard, one thing was certain, the experts could tell, which meant that the design was adapted until it satisfied their ambitions.
While their methods may have evolved slightly. One thing is for certain, their demands remain the same.
The Sound Cube
‘The Cube’, is one of the world’s largest, privately owned electroacoustic measurement facilities. It is an empty room measuring, 12 x 12 x 13 meters. Beginning from the technical stage and on through to production, it is used in all stages of product development. Its enormous size makes it possible to measure acoustic response without reflections from walls, floor, or ceiling.
‘The Cube’ gives B&O the precision they need to measure a loudspeaker’s frequency, power and directivity responses. Accurate measurements alone aren’t enough though. To truly sense whether music comes alive with the right tone and detail the human ear is still the final judge. And it is only until a speaker truly moves their senses, that it ever enters production.
