  • Re: Scandinavian moderation versus Bang & Olufsen

    [quote user="Sl3ipner"] "Just proves that "studio chaps" are fully capable of making sh** music really. You might want to refere to "Loudness War" and "Dynamic Range". The Beolab 5 surpasses any studio monitors by a large margin. [/quote] This comment just reflects little about the recording industry. The loudness war and dynamic range is driven by record companies primarily wanting their recordings to a) sound louder than others b) sound loud in cars

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

    [quote user="StUrrock"] You know what, B&O are changing and I must admit that the path that Mr Mantonis started, "BeoPlay", has ensured the brands survival for now. [/quote] Although, I'm not a fan of their current products and the products I do like are astronomically priced, I have to agree with this. Mantoni if he did one thing right was to expand the Beoplay range. Every audiovisual manufacturer must have a strong entry level product line to survive. Hats of to him

    In a way I miss him as well. I like the diversity of opinion even if it challenges me. Millemissen helps and supports the forum a great deal and unlike me is one of the busiest contributors here.

    Yes, aside from everything else which you've said which I disagree on, we are agreed that I don't like a lot of what B&O make now. I also find that you lack any attempt at neutral thought. Even B&O staff will admit to faults or problems with their approach or products by at every turn you seem to defend the indefensible. It's like having TripEnglish version 2 on the forum. Still, this makes the forum more varied, challenging and stimulating.

    That's the first I've heard a dealer charging for delivery. Delivery and plug and play only installation is free of charge and included. Greed, pure greed.

  • Scandinavian moderation versus Bang & Olufsen

    Graemeben quote from another thread: "My conclusion was while I liked just about everything in the store, I didn't actually want anything. The whole price structure was, to me, simply far above what even a keen B&O client would expect. I suspect anyone unfamiliar with the brand would probably feel the same. The extreme example of this was the Avant 85 and Beolab 90 on display, together total cost around £72k. All beautiful pieces of kit but totally beyond most people's reach. Further

  • Re: Death Spiral?

    [quote user="Millemissen"] Sure, if that is what you need, why pay more? Just go for it! You could even save the 500-100 for the receiver....if you don't care for more than a picture and tiny sound from a flat screen. As you write, that is what most people decide for...for various reasons. But ----- this is about B&O and what B&O can do in addition! So why compare those prices? If you want 'this car', you don't buy 'that car' or expect that it will cost as

    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. If I go back 20 years, a top model

  • Re: Death Spiral?

    [quote user="Millemissen"] I am sure that the price of the new tv's will be comparable with the price of other premium tv's.......when you consider the costs for the specific B&O add-ons/features. MM There is a tv - and there is a BV. [/quote] I disagree with this. A very good Panasonic TV can be bought in the U.K. for £800-1000 if you buy last year's model and for another £500-1000 you can buy a 5.1 with a receiver. The second development in the last 10 years is that despite
