Integration Controls is now the exclusive supplier of Bang & Olufsen (also known as B&O) ultra-premium AV products in the St. Louis metro area. B&O is legendary for design-forward speaker craftsmanship, which aligns with our goals to enrich your life at home through smart, integrated beauty.
Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen started in 1925 with a redesign of the radio and were half a century before other companies that claimed to “think differently.” A tagline B&O used way before Apple.
Now almost a century old with countless patents and firsts, B&O is synonymous with luxury AV design for those that want the best performance and quality from an innovative, conscientious company that cares about AV excellence and the future of the planet (through its cradle-to-cradle program).
Here’s a sneak peek at some of our favorite products in the B&O lineup. Supplies are limited because these products move fast, so reach out to experience B&O in person at Integration Controls.

Interested in something you don’t see in our gift guide? It may not fit inside a stocking, but we will collaborate with you to find a unique gift for your lifestyle and home’s interior. Plus, you’ll also be supporting a local business; always a good way to spread holiday cheer! (See our blog on Small Business Saturday for more on shopping locally this season!)
Small Business Saturday is a retail event that occurs in November and was initially created (by American Express) to encourage consumers to shop locally, in person and online, at small businesses. It’s a great opportunity for small businesses to increase sales during the holiday shopping season as they compete with companies like Amazon or Walmart. Plus, it reminds people of the benefits of shopping local, such as keeping your money invested in the community, creating a personal connection to local businesses, delivering enhanced expertise and service, and helping you find those unique and diverse products and services for the very best gift—even for the quirkiest folks on your list.
Small Business Saturday is more than an event, however, it’s a mindset we can all enjoy year-round! So avoid the lines and shipping delays this holiday season and give your loved ones an experience to remember...one that will last long after the thrill of the season is over.
Technological enhancements to the home not only bring beauty, they also bring convenience and a better quality of life, almost magically.
