Bang & Olufsen Toronto

Pri­vate res­i­dence or show­room? This im­mer­sive out­post for state­ment-mak­ing high-end elec­tron­ics com­bines the at­mos­pheres of both. Sit­u­ated within its lux­u­ri­ous liv­ing-room set­ting you’ll dis­cover TVS and speak­ers more akin to sculp­ture than tech­nol­ogy, while the kitchen is­land dou­bles as a wire­less head­phone dis­play. Art lovers will be drawn to the Beo­vi­sion Eclipse tele­vi­sion with its cus­tom­iz­a­ble sound­bar, as well as the hexag­o­nal mod­ules of Beosound Shape’s wall-mounted speak­ers. 100 DAVEN­PORT RD 416 935 1919 BEOTORONTO.COM

Bay Bloor Ra­dio

Spread across the three lev­els of this shrine to high-fidelity home en­ter­tain­ment, you’ll find a spec­trum of au­dio­vi­sual prod­ucts in a range of price points.
