  • Re: Where are B&O going right now?

    Here's a point about pricing. I would love a surround sound processor like the Beosystem 4, however they don't make a separate center channel speaker anymore, and the BS4 is, in my view, very overpriced. It doesn't have to be beautiful, my video gear is in a cabinet, but c'mon now. Video processing and surround for that price? I have a 500 dollar Oppo BR player, which has not only surround processing, but an excellent video engine/up convertor capable of cleaning up video sent to

  • Re: Potential new lg oled tv from B&o this year?

    [quote user="elephant"][quote user="Peter Pan"] BeoCenter AV5 -1997 - 2001. In Widescreen. = BeoVision Eclipse. There would be room for everything in that box. But you never know where ugly it can be if B&O also leaves LC about the design. Regards / Peter Pan. [/quote] I'd prefer a slimmer sound bar that's longer than screens base ... and when a source is selected the acoustic lens rise from each side of the screen (like Aphrodite ) however then we would call it "sunrise"

    [quote user="moxxey"] [quote user="vlohjr1"]Would it be better now for bo to produce a new beo system 4 only then and stop tv manufacture altogether? [/quote] What would you need a BS4, for, exactly? And how much would it cost? Are you suggesting someone connect a BS4 to an LG OLED? If so, what's the benefit to the user? [/quote] The ability to integrate your audio and multiroom stuff, just like with a Beovision, without the extra expense of paying B&O markup for the panel

    I think the A3 taught B&O all they needed to know about working with Apple.

    [quote user="seethroughyou"]I am aware that there has been and will people who afford anything and everything but I'm not one of them. That will remain a constant factor and hopefully a constant part of B&O's profits every year but I don't fall into that category. For me with a middling income, a B&O purchase is something requiring a few months of saving and even longer deliberation. The death spiral for me is that their products are pulling away from my financial reach

    [quote user="Puncher"] Struggling to think of the last thing they released that I lusted after! Also, given the rate at which the low end Beoplay stuff is released and then forgotten I suspect there is very little B&O engineering input and the lack of a Beoplay "design language" or compatibility of features means that it doesn't even encourage a user to expand a system beyond a single purchase whereas there are certainly single purchases that would prevent a user buying

    I have the same questions Sal! B&O has always seemed to have a lot less success and penetration of the US market as opposed to Europe and other locales, but at less than one dealer per state, and huge swaths of the country having no dealers, it makes you wonder how seriously they take the US market. Time will tell I guess.

    Not to worry Lee, I'm sure B&O's huge advertising presence in hifi mags and other places will turn the tide and make sure everyone is aware of them.

    [quote user="Tucker"] I was very sad to see the Atlanta store close. I must have shown up there right before it happened. Very dissapoonting. [/quote] I first met Dixon, the owner, about 5 years ago when I went to Atlanta to check out the store and the mall and such. He ran a good shop, very helpful and informative, good guy, took time to chat and explain/demo things. A good guy. I know another ex dealer who also was a really good guy, it's sad they are no longer dealers.

    Unfortunately, certain things don't sell well without a storefront and being catered to by knowledgeable sales representatives and installers. LIke B&O, the complexity of integrating a system, especially one with new and old components, is not the thing you just buy online. I think B&O can get away with that with the Play line, the main systems, not so much. Yeah, I'd jump at the chance to buy a pair of 88k dollar speakers without hearing them. Certainly, for certain items, online
