  • Re: M5 OR HomePod?

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"]A lot of the features are only for Apple Music subscribers, of which one I'm not. If I was and considering the price, even as a fan boy I'd get the HomePod in a shot. [/quote] As would most people, sadly. Sounds pretty powerful, too. It's certainly going to cause quite a dent in BeoPlay sales. I've just finished our big portable speaker roundup and the BeoSound 1 was included. Really disappointed with it's performance, if I'm honest.

    [quote user="benoit"] If it needs a hardware update I thing I'll sell my BS2 and forget about B&O [/quote] Of course it will - AirPlay 2 requires the hardware to support the software. You can't reengineer new standards back in to old hardware. But, you can't blame B&O. How can you? It's an Apple standard and it's them that moved the goalposts. Besides, your BS2 isn't suddenly unusable, any different. Just means it won't support some of the AirPlay 2 functionality

    [quote user="leogoeswild"]Is AirPlay 2 a software or hardware update? [/quote] I think AirPlay 2 will require new hardware as it enables the hardware to "talk" to other Apple devices. You won't be able to download AirPlay 2 to, say, your A9. My concerning (in terms of affecting B&O's future) for me would be HomePod. Looks like a significantly powerful home speaker for a very low price.

  • Re: Beosound *** looking for ***

    [quote user="Dillen"] It costs money to run a site like Beoworld. [/quote] We run a lot of websites and our monthly server bill is astronomical. Sometimes we can barely afford to pay it. It's always touch and go (think high four-figures). We pay commercial developers to keep the sites maintained. We pay commercial graphic artists to produce design elements across the sites. People increasingly demand and use ad-blockers to avoid seeing "annoying" adverts (which are one of

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

    [quote user="BeoNinja"] Teach the unknowing. Marketing in the US for Beoplay is a must...[/quote] Yes, but then the flipside to this is that marketing in the US is very hard, very costly and often very difficult. Knowing a lot of British brands who have tried it, many have failed (to conquer America). You can sell product over there, but making a big impact is tricky. The US is also very regionalised. You can spend a lot of money running a promo in Miami, with a famous Miami DJ, but it's

    [quote user="graemeben"] Where they go from here I'm afraid I don't have the answer to, but I fear if they keep developing products that appeal to such a limited market given the price they may not survive in their current business image. The reports of bad service and products being launched and then requiring numerous software updates don't help. The Beoplay range is of course doing well and this is good news. [/quote] It is, but as I've asked before, is this enough to

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

    [quote user="vlohjr1"] too tired to explain all this today! [/quote] Clearly, as I was too dim to understand what it does (even though I own a BS4). Logic. People just don't see business logic.

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

    [quote user="Jeff"] The ability to integrate your audio and multiroom stuff, just like with a Beovision, without the extra expense... [/quote] I think you misunderstand. I know *what* it does, what I'm saying is: what's the point. We set up a thread by saying that B&O is on a "downward spiral" and people are suggesting they ditch TVs and replace it with an expensive (seriously - the BS4 isn't cheap) box to control other B&O devices. My point is, how limited

    [quote user="Sandyb"]as for preferring the 12-65, why in particular? some prefer it as a high quality dumb TV, unencumbered by today's smart stuff, and that could be his primary reason.....but it certainly didn't suit everyone (form / size / price)....[/quote] I just asked about the OLED TV he'd seen at the dealer conference and that I might be tempted to 'upgrade' from my BV12-65 later this year. He simply said he'd prefer to have my BV12-65 and that it's a
