1st Prize - Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 5 Music System

 

A BeoWorld First this Christmas as we've never given one of these away before! If you win the Star Prize this Festive Season you'll have a beautiful pre-owned BeoSound 5 Music System (including the BeoMaster 5, Flat Wall Bracket and all cables, of course) to enjoy all to yourself in 2018!! Stream literally thousands of Internet Radio Stations, store thousands of songs, and you can even add peripheral players, streamers or your vinyl record deck to the AUX. It's everything you could want - and you even get the stylish and tactile looks too. From the slick rotating volume dial to the sliding lever it's true classic Bang & Olufsen 'form and function' in its operation. All yours for the most agreeable price of absolutely nothing if you win First in the Christmas Draw!

 

….the Lucky, Lucky, LUCKY (and did I say Lucky) Fabulous Festive Winner is…

 

Mr Peter Sch_fr (iPoditiv) from Bielefeld, Germany (I'm sure his surname isn't 'Sch_fr' but that's what the Gentleman has put on his membership records?!!)

 

So... Germany with the 'One-Two' this Christmas, ONE PERSON with the 'Three-Four' and the rest scattered all over the globe in true BeoWorld Style.

 

Anyway - amazing.. and all for the price of a months Gold Membership - you  just can't get this anywhere else!! Enjoy your new Bang & Olufsen Sch_fr!

 

Well – that wraps up another exciting BeoWorld Christmas Prize Draw!!  9 LEE will be in touch with all winners within 72 hours to arrange despatch of their Prizes, and all that remains is to thank you for attending, thank you for being Gold Members – and thank you all for being part of the best site on the internet!!

 

Goodbye until Spring Time, take care, have a wonderful New Year everyone - and most of all, to the Winners - enjoy your Prizes  !!!

Within about 90 days Wink you will see the integration in my bike.

About my nick:

I started with iPoditiv, which is still my login name for BeoWorld. But as I joined the famous WedThread I had to change to a new nick, because iPoditiv would have caused a constant whooping offence against the Wedrools (tm) (no mentioning of any device by B&O or Apple etc.)

My dealer in Bielefeld offers me assistance if I have any problems installing my new BeoSound 5 ... Thumbs Up

Congrats mate, I still love my BS5. I think it is a fantastic product that could have had a lot more presence and usage than we see today. But it is a great B&O product and maybe the last B&O music system with amazing aluminium handcraft and mechanical engineering.

Exactly ! (Thanks Tim for the tip) Laughing

Funny (source Wikipedia) :

Official response

The City council of Bielefeld tries hard to generate publicity for Bielefeld and build a nationally known public image of the city. However, even 17 years (or more) after the conspiracy started, the mayor's office still received phone calls and e-mails which claimed to doubt the existence of the city.

In 1999, five years after the myth started to spread, the city council released a press statement titled Bielefeld gibt es doch!(Bielefeld does exist!) on April Fools' Day.

I can attest to its existence...

In 2012 after meeting Peter (in Struer) we drove past it’s sign posted turnoff on the autobahn....

So that means it exists...

Doesn’t it?

Yes... You've just won TWO IN A ROW !!  Unbelievable !!! The draw is completely random and you get a new chance for EVERY Prize. It doesn't happen often - but here's proof it can.

Random, but after years and years I stopped believing that I could ever be lucky enough to win anything in the price draw :(. I even stopped checking it. The changes are not even that slim with only 250 something gold members... right? Or do you have to be online during the draw to be able to win?

Congrats to the winners, especially the one with the Beosound 5.

I think the chances of being a winner are just under 15% over the course of a year if there are 250 gold members.

As follows:

40 individual prize draws each year (winning once does not preclude you from winning again)

Chance of winning each draw is 1/250.  Therefore chance of NOT winning an individual draw is 249/250.

Based on 40 draws the chance of not winning all of those is (249/250) to the power 40.  Or 0.852

Thus the chance of winning one (or more) draws is 1-0.852 = 0.148 Or 14.8%

Needs updating for the current initial data, but the theory hasn't been changed since then. Smile

Ha.  Yes that thread is a good read (before my time on Beoworld).  There's nothing quite like a discussion on statistics or probability to generate 7 opinions from a randomly selected group of 6 people.

Clearly more beoworlders who would like to win but blame statistics for not getting any :)

Today I wanted to check the delivery status of my prize and was interrupted by an inhouse telephone call: "You got a parcel."

The BeoSound 5 and BeoMaster look brand new. To find out that it was used before, you have to look inside the wall mount to see the tiny traces of the fastening screws.

Now I have to install the system ...

The two guides on the B&O site are detailed enough to be helpful ...
