  • Future B&O

    [quote user="Meliora"] You are spot on. All engineers that worked on Eclipse and BeoLab50 has left the company. They where all laid off between may and October 2017. The company has no engineering left (only the aluminium factory that rumors say is for sale). In future the functions left will be design, purchasing, sourcing and some support functions left. Rest is RIP. The future vision of B&O management is to run the business as a Beoplay business unit. That means all engineering in

    [quote user="Millemissen"] I find it great that they are hiring new people to further improve the work in the acoustic department in Struer. Good news for us.....

    I'm relying on MM to put a positive spin on this for us.

    [quote user="Meliora"] On the other hand, you can argue that BeoPlay has so much succes that it is the way to go ... I don't know .. what's your opinion ? [/quote] For the shareholders?, then absolutely. Unfortunately to stay in business they are willing to kill the B&O brand and all it stood for. Question - if true B&O products do not stand alongside, behind and above BeoPlay to give the lesser brand some gravitas, where will Beoplay be in a few years?

    Simple enough really, 24 bit encoding has less quantisation noise than 16 bit giving the quoted SNR figures, its real and measurable. Can you hear beyond the 96db - I don't follow this type of thing with any real vigour so if someone can point me to a properly conducted double blind test that proves positively that it is audible I'd be very interested to read it. Sampling at high rates has distinct advantages when it comes to anti-aliasing filter selection and design (many standard CD players

    But they cannot continue ploughing huge amounts of cash into developing hugely expensive products that not enough people want to buy in order to prop up sales of sourced headphones!

    [quote user="Emil Jensen"] I think you underestimate the market with license and headphone. Look at Beats audio, Look at B&O car audio. The math works out. [/quote] I understand the licensing model well and don't deny it can be profitable. My concern is how much of those sales rely of the brand association to "Big Brother" B&O products - if genuine B&O release end or they are merely badged Chinese imports then how long before the brand image slips and then what

    [quote user="Emil Jensen"]They do not provide the display, the picture chip, and 90% of the interface.[/quote] Lets be clear, you yourself acknowledge the TV part is not B&O, the "so many more features" you expound are all in the sound bar (and stand). Even the Trustedreviews review that people were quoting yesterday as a pointer to how good a product it is says, " " the design is achieved by literally slotting an LG OLED55C7 screen into the top of the soundbar.
