Hiort do you think the 90 BV11 is nicer than your BV11 considering they are the same size

Well, I think the bronze give a nice twist to the design. Problem with distinct colors (I consider bronze being that) it potentially will go out of fashion.

The bv11 is to expensive for me to change based on fashion, so I stick with my more timeless all black Smile

Definitely not. Seen it again this morning and I think that I could get bored very easily with that color compared to silver.

Has anyone ordered and received a 90 year piece yet ?

 

 

I tried - I asked for the remote - I was told to order the TV so I could get the remote - so I asked BeoCare - and got a circular answer

For his 90th anniversary, Bang and Olufsen might to release an amazing AV system with High End loudspeakers to mark the event.

Where is the spirit of innovation today ? Tue Mantoni like only fashion.

The Danish Avant-Garde is lost.

Nowadays, Bang & Olufsen and BeoPlay are only fashionable brands. Whistle

I wonder if a workaround would be to ask a dealer later in the year to order just the copper case of the BeoRemote One as a replacement part. Because I would have obviously "scratched or dinged" mine, so I need to switch out the keypad module to make my "replacement" BROne90 as new again.

I'm sure they've already thought of that, though.

Going by the website, i think the A9 looks the superior product , in fact it looks quite tasteful.

I think i would like a BV11 for the front room.  My front room is dark grey so that may look quite nice on the wall . I'm also considering the BL18s

Interestingly though you spend money with your dealer and they don't even call you to say "hey do you want to come in and look at the new stuff"... This company baffles me at times.  

Even if i didn't want to purchase, you think they'd be on the phone.... hey hows your TV going... everything ok?  Want to come in and take a look.

Maybe for their 90 year celebration, B&O dealers should run info sessions like "this is the way you get the best out of your BV, your BL's, system, etc etc etc". Get people in the shops. 

I wonder what a BeoLit 15 would look like in copper and the grey.... ;-)

@ Aussie Michael

Agree with you.

Not very commercial attitude from some Beo dealers.

Even new products are not promoted as well !

I am not surprised if Bang & Olufsen have financial problems. Whistle

Yes, BeoLit 15 should look beautiful in rose gold grill with dark grey base.

Just saw the Beolab 18s and Beoplay A9 in the flesh in Lyon - they look fantastic, especially the A9 - huge difference compared to the "original" red A9 they also had in the store. Unfortunately, I am on a strict budget due to a new house, otherwise I would have really considered the A9 for 2000 Euros.

My B&O products: Beosound 9000, Beosound 2300, Beosound Century, Beolab 8000, Beolab 6000, Beolab 4000 x2, Beolab 3500, Beolab 2000, Beolab 10, Beolink Active x2, Beotime, Beo5 x2, Beo4, A9 keyring x2, LC2 dimmer x6 and growing....

Interesting point. My local dealer has recently sent out invitations to an evening event in a couple of weeks to launch the 90th anniversary range and also present a demonstration of the Moment. They do this whenever something major is added to the range. They will offer a glass of wine or two. I guess each dealer decides for themselves how this operates. Perhaps you need to move a little closer to me Michael Big Smile

Yes, this gold A8 sold on the first day in Harrods last December. £3000 was the price. Truly shocking isn't it and very un B&O like.

But, I love this Rose Gold range. It reminds me of the Tom Dixon light range :)

I'll be returning the Silk version for this as more of a conversation piece. I'm confident that the silk version will be around for years.

I placed my order for one here in the States. Delivery after 4/14/2015. :-)

Introduced a friend of mine to my dealer today and he bought a A9 rose gold (2.090 € with 20% vat).

The big surprise (for me) was that it is made in CZ. Thought all the Play products where coming from RPC. Was wrong and glad to be.
