So I have just seen on Facebook via the Beoplay page.. The new S8 speaker system...

 

it it looks like a Beolab 14 with 2 speakers and a sub!

i'll let everyone give their thoughts on this but I don't really know what to say about it!

Good stuff! Smile

Hope you are able to write a review and share some pics.

Will you use it for music only or complementing a Beovision?

I really don't think they're made aware of what's coming in very much detail, especially not the price.

Certainly as B&O is (finally) lowering their prices, things like this are going to happen.

I am pretty sure that no dealer at that time was aware of the launch of the S8 (or of the price).

The S8 is connected to the BV exactly the same way as the BL14.2 is.

Don't feel cheated - that is how things work nowadays.

You seem to enjoy your setup - just be happy, that you have had it since May.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Dealers didn't know about the launch delay and the price of the BeoPlay S8.

We are always waiting for a new compact audio BeoPlay. Yes - thumbs up

I can tell you as a dealer I had never heard of the S8 in May or for a few months after. However, the BL14 2.1 is still a superior product as it can power additional speakers - one day you might want it to run 4 or 5 speakers.

Also the aluminium rings of the BeoLab 14 speakers in my opinion are much nicer than the black rims of the S8 - so I certainly wouldn't feel cheated.

That being said, the S8 is going to be a great 2.1 system at a fantastic price.

I'm confused to why they would call it S8 instead of say BeoPlay 14? It looks exactly like the 14 and giving it the BeoPlay instead of BeoLab shows this as the pared down 2.1 version (with no option of expansion).

Funny you say that... when the BL14 was released, I thought that product would fit better in the Beoplay range.

I assume that one can have Beovision as the center speaker, thus having a 3.1 setup.

Can anyone confirm?
