    Beolab 50

    I'm looking forward to reading reports from people who have heard both these and the 90s. They feature most of the same technology as used in the 90s.

    Not sure what to think about the tweeter with a vertical waveguide..... I doubt it is anything like the 90 based on the number of drivers and tweeter implementation.

    I am not so sure. The raison d'Ítre of these designs is controlled and relatively narrow horizontal dispersion across a wide span of the frequency spectrum. That is achieved in the 90 by using multiple HF, MF and LF drivers and DSP. In the 50, there is a similar arrangement for the MF and LF ranges but , in the 50, they use an adjustable (and cheaper) acoustic lens for HF. This is perfectly reasonable and the limitation is simple: One cannot re-aim the controlled dispersion to another MLP without rotating the speaker, as one does with almost any other speaker on the market.

    I am expected a pair of them shortly.
