Playdrv4me:

I think this is my favorite setup in the whole thread. So simple and classic. I need to find a sideboard like this.

Thanks for those words.. unfortunately the setup is not intact anymore. since changing apartment the fat-TV (as we call it in Sweden) has not enough space (depth). ant the wall where the TV goes is too short for the white media bench as well. So it is only the BM and speakers left... pictures will follow :)

Of course I did not scrap the TV, it has a new life at my grandfathers. He likes the fact that he don't have to press the buttons on the remote that hard, and not even point it to the TV for operation. Whistle    The worst thing with all this is that I currently have to point the remotes and that there is an "s" in the end of remotes.

Done moving, now living in the apartment (with internet!) School starts tomorrow, so the day has been spent on listening to the system in its new surroundings. A small "upgrade" are 22 kg outdoor tiles underneath the speakers to prevent too much bass resonance and complaining neighbours... Beomaster 8000 back in service, forgot the remote terminal and my Barclay James harvest records at home though.

Vinyl records, cassettes, open reel, valve amplifiers and film photography.

Yes, but you have a DSOTM poster. If I remember college correctly, that was all that was needed.

Good luck with your studies. Don't forget to live a little while you work your tail off.

The DSOTM poster is obligatory - I also have three different issues of the LP with me to be sure that I get my daily dose of Pink Floyd. Went through the 2011 remaster of Wish You Were Here earlier today Laughing

Thanks mate, the first nine months will be workmanship and preparations for the engineering part with focus on materials and diesel engines. Next up is nine months of practical work, I've been signed up at a local water plant where I'll be programming PLC systems - The real challenges begins after that!

Some updates to my setup:

The Beolab 2000 in my bedroom has been replaced by a pair of Beolab 4000 connected through a Beolink Active kit to the main system in the living room and to the TV in the bedroom (using the PC input).  Just changed the frets from silver to white and me and the wife (since three weeks) love the new look. 

The TV in the living room was updated to a Panasonic VT50 50 inch this spring and the Beolab 4000s have been moved onto the bench and updated with black frets (these I reclothed myself, the white ones are OEM).

Updates to come is a new TV in the bedroom (probably a Panasonic TX-P42ST60) and the Beolab 2000 will most probably be mounted in the hallway. If anyone has a 7+ meter long white master link cable lying around, I'm interested.

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....

Just a setup in my living room

 

It is a Bevision 8 with BeoVox Pentas - and an Apple TV, a Samsung BD 4610, an ARCAM Solo Amplifier for my Pentas and a Technisat Receiver - all hidden in the Struer Design Cabinet (and my iMac hidden in the next room.

The Photo was made in Berlin 2006 at an exhibition of Heinz Mack (founder of the Gruppe Zero). The paintings made by Fr Meinrad Duffner OSB have no title, but I would call them Hip and Square ...

Nice and simple Peter - and a BIG sound !

 

Yesterday I was at a coffee shop and they had a newspaper we don't get/take called the Sun-Herald and they had a Home magazine insert.

Unfortunately I can not find the magazine section of the SUn-Hearld site to give you a link.

Fortunately I had taken some phone camera shots of the key pages, so here I am FLASHing someone else's B&O - the article did not reference the B&O, just went on about the style .... which is NOTHING like Peter's simplicity.

Two posts will follow this one of the front page: first article page B&O shot (same as cover), second article page shot with B&O kit in background

Still is, and there will be more shortly, just a quite period, a lot of people are waiting for more new items and updates from B&O. In the mean time take a look  in the vintage section . Beakers "new" 610 is something.

 

Collecting Vintage B&O is not a hobby, its a lifestyle.

Quite correct and quite strange.

On my iPhone the picture appears upside down, and so yes I could view it - but thought it had been posted upside down (as they used to be when I posted them from my phone !)

The picture has wrong orientation info in the EXIF headers. If you disregard them and view it "the old fashioned way" according to the original JPEG specification, it's the right way up - but if you rotate it according to the EXIF data, it's upside down.

So it's the opposite of the typical Apple problem Big Smile

I really like the diamond style bookcase design, givers a quirky look to the alcove whilst pointing at the B&O

we tend to forget there is more to design than designing.

With all the talk of "wireless" speakers your picture reminds my of how B&O turned speaker cables into a feature of the design with their black spiral cables with a red stripe

Perhaps all we needed all these years was a range of colour coordinated cable socks to get our partners happy !

Yes - it is good isn't it !

I have seen that design for books and also CDs/DVDs ... provides a nice change, but what I particularly liked was how this couple had also reflected the diamond pattern in their choice of wallpaper (and curtains too !)

Yes - those !

Rather "louder" I remember, but a design attempt to echo the red detail in the speaker.

Nice to see some photos of the Beolit12 in action. It is interesting to see how the different colors match into different furnished rooms.

Thanx for the compliments! I absolutely love my setup as well. Eventhough it is 20+ years old it makes me smile every time I use/see it. I think that  is what Bang and Olufsen should be all about, designing beautiful, good quality, timeless products that make you smile every time you use/see them.

that is a very good, easy to implement idea! Maybe we should mail Tue!

I think that Beocenter is one of the sexiest, most alluring things made. I was seriously interested in that until I saw the BS9000 CD changer. He way the access panels just silently slide back and the touch controls...a stunning design. 

Amazing that my living room floor is the same as yours, it appears yours is almost exactly the same color, depending on how the camera shifts colors.

Can that coffeepot be (mis)used for beer too?  --- mille-mis-used Big Smile

How many Slots may go into it.

(Slots is a beer made and canned  in Denmark and exported to Gernany...

...and reimported to Denmark to avoid the high danish taxes on the cans).

I'll fill it up then 🍻
