I… Am… BEOLAB!

It’s a gift-giving problem we’ve all faced – what to get the Dane who has everything? You’ve already bought him austere, uncomfortable furniture, a year’s supply of smørrebrød, and the collected works of Victor Borge. Oh, you could always get him a Dala horse, but before you do please take note of the fact that DALA HORSES ARE SWEDISH, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! He HATES those people!

Better just to give him the gift you know for certain he’ll love – a pair of strange looking $16,000 Danish speakers that, like most things made in Denmark, have an upsetting little probe that, when you push a button, sproings out and takes measurements of his room acoustics.

(For the record, yes, I want a pair.)
