So we got the new colours for Beloit 15 and A2, and stereo mode.

Stereo mode I guess is a warm up for the S3,

So I guess S3 is next, but what is the thing?

Does it get multiroom funktion? what price range? 

Many Q still open.

 

What about the V1 replacement? Larger sizes? Price? 4K? Design? any news?

 

What about the new flagship speaker? Any news about design and launch?

 

What about the Beolab 5, discount or upgrade to WISA?

 

What about Beolab 3, a classic but old?

 

What about Beolab 4, a new cheap beolab speaker?

 

And last for my view for now, is the Beosystem 4, do we get a Replacement with WISA and 4K then it could be interesting.

Beovision Eclipse, Beolab 5, Beolab 17, Beosound 1 Google assist, Beoplay M3, Beoplay H6, Beoplay Earset

I get the feeling the new software paves the way for the S3, or 3's if it's a mono speaker.

A V1 replacement can't come quick enough, and even I would consider an 11-55 with OLED. What a range of new and existing classics that would be Yes - thumbs up

I expect them to do an A8 like speaker with multiroom some time soon.

i think that 20% promo was just to clear off some excess incentory to make space for new stuff

I wouldn't expect any truly worthy replacement for the Beolab 5 at this point. I think B&O are not in a financial position to support such a move right now, especially with some already saying the Beolab 20 is almost as good. Some say better, I've never heard them so I can't compare with my 5s. 

I'd consider it more likely the BL5, already outsourced to Czech manufacture in the latest version as it is, will just be quietly retired after existing stock supplies are exhausted. It has only 2 more years to go to match B&O's second longest running premium speaker ever (I frequently forget that the 6000/8000 ran longer... insanely long, but were also never top of the line models), the Penta. And if you choose to use the other two as a yardstick, it's not going anywhere any time soon. 

BeoPlay V1 desperately needs updating. You can't sit on your laurels in that end of the market, so either a BeoPlay V2 in 4K needs to be introduced, or V1 Mk. 2 or whatever with 4K needs to come along, more sizes etc. as well. I see the PLAY line really being where the potentially good profits will be for B&O in the coming years.

We'll see. Every supposedly amazing thing from B&O the past few years has been hobbled or less than impressive in some way. And they likely won't be made in Denmark which for a 25,000.00 speaker is a deal breaker. Aside from that, the recent speaker introductions (17, 18, 19) have been pretty nice though so I'll hold out some hope. 

Good for me either way as it will finally push the 5s price down into reality and put more of them in the used market.

...and/or read the latest articles on Geoff Martin's website.

They definitely have something in store in Struer.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Id love to see a V1 in the natural colour just released for the A2 and Bl15.

That and a mini A8 but I think this is what the S3 will be.

It's great to speculate what's around the corner it's nice to talk about the brand even if nothing comes to fruition

I just spent time doing this. Lots of cool posts by Geoff. I didn't even know it existed.

Definitly a copper black BeoLit 15 and a mini sized A8 would be amazing. The A8 looks HUGE now when sat near the 15 and A2. 

The V1 replacement could be exceptional.  OLED in a BV11.

It's for sure, my dealer told me, there will come a replace for the Beolab 3500. That's all I know.

I have a feeling that we will see a B&O PLAY Soundbar!

Only awesome and interesting thing in B&O stores would be a new Beogram turntable... I know it is not realistic but who knows...
