Denmark's Bang & Olufsen has been showing off a rather lengthy all-in-one music system in Las Vegas this week. Crafted in aluminum and sporting soundbar-like styling, the pentagonal BeoSound 35 is a meter long and comes with the promise of premium sound, with a price tag to match. In fact, you won't get much change from US$3,000.

The elongated stand-alone music system boasts built-in access internet radio and streaming services like Spotify and Deezer. It's also compatible with AirPlay, Bluetooth 4.0 and DNLA-based devices so can belt out digital music content from mobile devices or wireless-enabled storage. The BeoSound 35 is reported capable of handling 24-bit/192 kHz high resolution audio and supports FLAC, WAV and AIFF formats as well as MP3, WMA (though WMA lossless is not supported), AAC and ALAC playback.

The black fabric to the front masks two 4-inch bass drivers and two 0.75-inch tweeters, each driven by its own 80-watt Class-D amplifier, for an effective frequency range of between 45 Hz and 22 kHz. B&O is promising well-balanced, room-filling sound over a wide sound stage – whether it's placed on a table using the aluminum stand or mounted to a wall.

A 256 x 64 gray scale OLED display site in the middle, with essential touch-enabled function buttons underneath. The 100 x 13.1 x 12.5 cm (39.3 x 5.1 x 4.9 in), 6.2 kg (13.67 lb) system can also be controlled by the company's BeoRemote One or using the free BeoMusic App, and be integrated into a BeoLink Multiroom entertainment setup.

The BeoSound 35 is due for mid-April release. You can get a brief taste of what you can expect in exchange for the US$2,785 you'll need to carry one home in the video below.
