I have for a long time considered the Beosound Moment, but if it should fit my BV14 Smoked Oak and A9 Smoked oak, I had to do something with the wood on the moment... I've tried the moment a few times but I can't seem to figure it out, I think my iPad is a much better tool, for the whole link system in my home... But I do love the look of the moment..

So what to do..

I made my own iPad dock... Here is some pictures of the final product and some of the building process.

It took around 15 hours to do and around 3 days for the oil on the oak to dry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was the Oak Block it all came from

Very nice, good work! I like it, and it's probably going to be less hassle and more reliable than the Moment sadly.

Beovirus victim, it's gotten to be too much to list!

Thanks Jeff.... I dont have any experience with the stability of the moment, but I didnt like the general usage of the product... and my ipad can control my home with the BeoMusic app, now I just need the new Bang & Olufsen app for iPad and the BeoRemote to work with BV14, then it will be a great succes

Looks really nice - you are a skilled DIY'er Yes - thumbs up

A few questions, though.

Can the iPad also be placed in there with the screen turned towards you?

If yes, how do you primary use it? Sitting in the dock or just placed with you on the 'coffe table'.

Isn't it rather heavy stuck in that piece of oak?.

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Hi MM

Yes the iPad Can connect both ways, I usely take the iPad with me and browse songs and when I'm done I'll put it back.

it will only charge if its put in the dock with the oak as front! 

its not really heavy it actually feels like a premium product, like beo4 compared to BeoRemote because of the weight.

Haven't seen it in the iPad store... it only shows up when I search for the app on the iPhone...

 

And thanks
