The BC150 speaker draws on elements of the company’s BC350 model, and features two Air-Motion-Transformer tweeters, a 32cm woofer designed to deliver “deep yet crisp bass”, and a frequency response of 34Hz-20kHz ±3dB.

The speaker retails for £97,500, measures 309 x 1433 x 601mm, and weighs 195kg.

The 217 will launch in October, with the BC150 following a month later in November.
