B&O has informed that Beoremote One will be available at the end of the year (Nov/Dec). At least in Finland ordering BR One is not yet possible.

Same information from my Swedish dealer.

jk1002:

Here in the US they have a special display in the window in some stores. 

So I guess it can be ordered

Nope, the display does not mean it can be ordered. We have the display in the UK as well... but the can't be ordered yet.

For those who can't wait, here's one on ebay Germany:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/BO-BeoRemote-One-AluFernbedienung-die-neueste-von-Bang-Olufsen-/201154277443

 

As you can see: You can name all sources like you want! Very nice!
From the german auction text:
The seller explains that he controls his Beovision 4 and his Beosound 5 with the Beoremote one.
You don't have to remember that Aple TV is on DTV2 or s.th. like on the Beo 4, you can name it like you want. If the name is longer it scrolls through the display.
 
Shipping is 25,- Euro inside Europe and 15 Euro to Germany.

Based on this topic, I harassed my dealer again about the remote. He make a telephone call to his supplier and I get the same information as by the end of june: 

…Delivery of extra remote's is not yet possible, it will be in the coming months or maybe (hopefully) earlier. 

Now I won't ask my dealer about it anymore, I wait my turn in this.

The official respons from B&O regarding the remote is as per Week 35/2014:

BeoRemote One:
Vær venligst opmærksom på følgende:

BeoRemote One kan kun bestilles sammen med en BeoVision Avant. Yderligere BeoRemote One fjernbetjeninger som skal benyttes sammen med andre produkter forventes at være tilgængelige for bestilling i løbet af efteråret 2014.

English: Please note the following: BeoRemote One can only be ordered with the BeoVision Avant. Additional BeoRemote One remote controls to be used with other products is expected to be available for ordering during the Fall of 2014.

The window display remote even comes with "Display model" engraved on the back of it - to prevent eBay sales, I assume :-)

Yes, you can certainly read it like that. On the other hand, the first "other" BOX that can take advantage (all other boxes can use it) is the BV11 through this summer's sw release that gave the user the option to select between the Beo4 and BeoRemote One.

Looks like B&O will be able to catch up with the demand for the Avant during September - which may lead to an earlier than expected release of the BeoRemote One?

Apparently all dealers are not given equal treatment & access to products by B&O.

B&O's official word was that Beoremote One is not yet available separately, and should be expected no sooner than at the end of the year.

Quite a few Beoworlders across Europe and elsewhere have asked their dealers for a BR One, and it is not available separately.

Why a dealer in the Canary Isles and at least one other location get preferential treatment from B&O is unknown.

In B&O internal ordering system, on the Beoremote 1 page, it clearly say that you can only order it with an avant.

I think it is simply that some dealers are frustrated to miss a sale opportunity and they have decided to order a few and it went through.

That was exactly the way my dealer ordered a remote for me. It went through, but by viewing his order status a couple of days later it was removed.

Presumably that means you can't order an Avant TV with an extra spare remote until the end of the year.

Would that be correct?

In an household with a little one a spare remote has been very handy countless times

My local dealer is pretty "frustrated". He was basically forced to setup the shop window with the display for the One (very prominent) already a couple of months ago. Since then, plenty of people (obviously) entered the shop to buy one, just to be told they (me included) have to wait until the end of the year...

Look. First of all. The remote is delayed! It is not like B&O want it to be delayed. They would not do the window displays if they knew it was going to be late but now it is. Remember when the white Iphone 4 launched and it was postponed for about half a year? People went crazy.. Just chill.

That time the reason was the white paint letting light trough and they had to rework the design of some sensors.

I think the problem with beoremote one is that:

There was manufacturing defects with the avant - it takes time to fix! And it is priority number one (take care of the mess first!)

The remote is new, it is not perfected. During the months I've used it I noticed that the front aluminum is so sharp that I scratch myself on it.

It also scratches my table and furniture due to the sharp front part. (Yes the bottom is razor sharp where it meets the plastic part. It's just cut straight of without any polishing. I really hope B&O fixes this.

And remember it's brand new. You all have remotes already right? Relax, live life and enjoy yourselves in the meantime. The remotes will launch when then CAN.

And the fact some retailers do sell remotes might be because they don't feel like doing things according to B&O. Perhaps they have a few Avants in store and a few unused remotes or grabbing remotes to unsold units? The remote comes in it's own box so it's very possibly so.

And remember it also comes in steel later. The aluminum dents very easily! I have two small dents on the side of mine and I don't know where they come from. The remote mostly lies on a table.

To make a long story short : the new remote IS available at my dealer (south of France) right now (september the 2th of 2014).

At least 4 in stock ready to go.

Should have asked the price because your going to ask me.

And no you don't need to buy an Avant !

Oh dang! A buddy of mine is on a wine tour in France right now, and he planned to spend some time in the South of France (Nice) from September 5th onwards.

He changed plans and will skip the South, focusing on the champagne region.

I would have so had him chase for the Beoremote One for me in South of France Big Smile

He'll be in Paris for a few days — I'll be sure to send him some B&O Store coordinates just in case!

PS. Google Map coordinates to 3 stores in Paris sent to him Smile

Hi, No not in Essen, the B-one is very sleek like an iphone in feel. It takes a while to get used to it i.e the central arrow buttons dont work in the TV/HDR menus you have to use forward and rewing buttons with the programme +&- buttons. You get used to this though, the My Buttons are excellent also the renaming of buttons is a great trick.

That will be because your TV does not support the newer Beo4 with Navi buttons...

I think it should be a matter of days now for your Fin. dealer to deliver you the new remote.

It's available at least in France and Germany right now !

Otherwise it would be a nice christmas present for you if your dealer can get it's hands on one untill then.

I do not know if it is public knowledge already, but the manufacturer of the new remote is Ruwido.

They are big on remotes. Austrian firm. They also do e.g remotes for Mercedes S-class. They do al manufacture inhouse so no chinese factory.

I met them at the IBC event in Amsterdam today. Had several Avant in their booth. Very stylish.

The aluminium casing is made in Struer.

They have two robots working 24/7 to make those.

In short a new robot will be installed, which is needed to keep up with the demand for the housings.

From Struer they are transported to Austria (Ruwido) for assembling with the 'electronics'.

Finally the finished product is transported to Herning (DK) where all B&O finished products are stored....

ready for delievering to the costumer.

That is how things work nowadays.

In general the One will only be available with the Avant's - untill november (as Tue told me this wednesday).

The problem is that they can't/couldn't keep up with the production of the housings in Struer.

I understand that the problem is big for you.

Did you contact your dealer - and what did he do about it?

My question however was - how many users have a problem with this?

Would be nice to hear from other owners as well.
