Austin, Texas - Bang & Olufsen will open its third showroom
in Texas this
fall, joining existing stores in Dallas and Houston.

The new 1,168-square-foot
showroom is located in Austin's 2nd Street District and, like its
sister stores in the Lone Star State, is owned by 1818 Retail Opportunities, a
Texas-based custom installation business.

"The 1818
Retail Opportunities team has been a strong partner of ours for many years,"
said Zean Nielsen, president of Bang & Olufsen America, "and we are proud
to further expand B&O's tradition of excellence in design and technology in
the Austin
area."

The store
showcases the full Bang & Olufsen product line, including its new BeoTime
alarm and desk clock, due to arrive in stores this autumn.

The showroom
also features Bang & Olufsen's BeoLiving concept, which controls lighting,
draperies and various environmental modules through a single remote control.

A grand
opening cocktail reception will be held for new Bang & Olufsen customers in
the Austin
area. For more information on the event or to RSVP, guests can call the store
directly at (512) 481-1818.

Chicago-based
Bang & Olufsen America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bang & Olufsen,
the Danish manufacturer of premium A/V products that are sold exclusively
through company-branded stores, including 50 in the U.S.

1818
Retail Opportunities is a 30-year-old custom installation firm specializing in
high-tech equipment and home-theater systems. The company operates locations
across the country and has been an independent Bang & Olufsen dealer for
seven years.
