The Danish consumer electronics company and manufacturer Bang & Olufsen is known for its state-of-the-art sound systems, including some of the most expensive speakers on the planet, and it looks like the company has done it yet again, but this time with a complete multispeaker wireless sound system.
The BeoSound 35 was unveiled on Wednesday, Jan. 6, at CES 2016 in Las Vegas at an invitation-only press conference, where journalists got to check out B&O's BeoLab90 speakers, which made headlines this past October, in action. The polygonic, futuristic speakers, which are marked at a tear-inducing $40,000, were marketed by the company as the ultimate auditory experience — a "vision of sound" — with various speaker heads placed in deliberately and selectively different directions to provide the ultimate, immersive surround-sound quality.
B&O's latest speakers might resemble Picasso's cubist answer to a rolling pin, but there's no denying that the multispeaker system has the company's paradoxically classic-yet-futuristic look. People in attendance have already said the latest product, like B&O's lines before it, can execute "room-filling sound."
As of now, there is no word as to how the BeoSound 35 connects, but it might have something to do with the company's BeoLink Multiroom technology, which links B&O products to each other in one system via mobile device — even if it's in a tertiary fashion.

Bang & Olufsen also had another newsworthy note at CES: the company was named as one of many to add Google Cast to its Internet-linked speaker products, which Google announced on Wednesday at the conference. Other companies that also added Google Cast include Harman Kardon, Philips, Onkyo, Pioneer and Raumfeld.
