Hi all,

here the specs of my dream of a new Beosystem 4:

- 10 HDMI IN

- 2 HDMI OUT for projectors

- 3 HDMI OUT for distribution of video (HD) and audio (all digital formats) to link rooms (BeoNet)

- internal hard disk for recording all video and audio sources

- 3 USB (3.0) connections for external hard drives and USB-sticks

- Powerlink-sockets for 7 Beolabs and 2 Subwoofers

- WLAN with UPnP-Server

Hope it will come soon (before 2050)!

Wouldn't it be nice?

Regards

A BeoSystem 4 is the product I most desire from B&O these days (I actually want 2).  At this point, I cannot justify the purchase of a BeoSystem 3 (too expensive, too outdated, and ML based without the capability of adding the impending ML replacement).

I like the specs you proposed for your dream BeoSystem 4.  However, I can live without the internal hard disk for recording video and would be happy with 6-8 HDMI in.  That said, aside from updated video and audio processing, there are few more specs that I desire.

What I really want are digital outs for the BL5 (I was shocked when these were not included in the BeoSystem 3) and a digital in for the Beosound 9000. Also, I would like it if the BeoSystem 4 was future-proofed by taking 4k TV into consideration (if that’s even possible). In addition, I like the trend (in the Beoplay products) of the devices being user upgradable (for software), I would like this trend to continue for the Beosystem 4.  Also, it would be nice if the BeoSystem 4 had basic IR learning capabilities for devices like projectors.  Lastly, I would not mind if the BeoSystem 4 included things like Airplay and Apps.  However, I am equally happy (and possibly prefer) using an external device such as an Apple TV for such functions.

I also don't expect a hard disk in Beosystem 4 and also no airplay and apps.

But your additional points show what we want: No more outdated analogue, but a digital video and audio device.

But I think B&O (especially Tue) prefers to develop more WLAN toys for new customers and not highend products for "old" customers like us!

While all these features are nice and there should be a product from B&O that offers this, I also think that most people are only using a fraction of BS3's capabilities. I need a simple Surround unit produces high quality sound and supports 5.1 speakers. I don't need video processing - I have quality video sources.

But likely B&O will do the same as they did with BS3 - price it out of the market without offering superior features. This is pretty evident when comparing a TV with a built-in BS3 vs a stand alone BS3 or comparing a standalone BS3 with some of the newer BVs that appears to have newer surround technology than what BS3 offers.

Dear Räuber,

how many " WLAN toys for new customers" do you think Tue will have to sell, before he/B&O can afford to develop, to produce and to distribute such a monster-BS.

We don't even know if there is a market for a/for your BS4 anymore?

The engine used in the V1 and in the BV11 with a second HDMI-out would be perfect for a new version of the BV7/BV12 - or as standalone.

It has plenty of power for software-updates for the next couple of years -  I am sure.

Greetings Millemissen

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Well said!  I would still like to see the V1 surround engine as a stand alone product, so the display and then surround unit can be upgraded separately. As the V1 TV is under $3,500 the surround unit should be a fraction of this..
