I received a letter today with a wee catalog for the introduction of a new color (dark green) for : M5, BS 1 + 2, BS 35 and A9.

May interest a few of you...

can’t attach a pic, but dark green is dark green (military/olive).

They look stunning irl. I saw a BeoSound 2 today, and in the light of the shop, it was a lot more discreet and beautiful than the pictures suggest. Though I do think a brushed black or graphite iteration would be rather spectacular...

I got my green BeoSound 1 on Friday. Love it (although not really a very strong green - more like an oily warm grey).

I'm always curious about B&O's thinking in their different colors, more to the point, different colored aluminum. I doubt an owner would buy 3 different items with 3 different anodized aluminum covers. I can totally understand the interchangeable cloth or plastic speaker covers, but their brass / champagne, etc. products... how many **additional** sales are they generating? Or are those aluminum product runs limited or made to order? If I had a BV11/14 in the classic aluminum / black bezel, and then fancied a brass bezel, am I left to buy a whole new TV? The same goes for the BS1 & 2 & 3500. I just don't understand marketing / sales. (Before someone brings up different colored iPods, that's a whole different price point and ballgame).

I’m not green with envy for those Harmonies products.

I’d like a Beosound 2 one day and it will be "standard" color.

They are nice and well made but for a long term relation still very green.

I think buying luxury items in novel colors or patterns is inherently a demonstration of the buyers confidence in their style or, often, their willingness to show that expensive luxury items are frivolous and fleeting to them.

My father was a poor farmer and I remember being very young and hearing about him talk about saving up to buy the best suit he could afford that year. For him it was a luxury and he wore it to church, weddings, funerals, and eventually my graduation from grad school some 20 years later. It was black and conservative. It sure wasn’t cobalt blue or forest green, which in a nicely tailored suit can look amazing. Luxuries serve purposes to people differently, I think.

You're right, my post was coming from my perspective as someone who would NOT buy multiple items for the sake of color (I'm talking about items whose frets / covers can't be changed), but I'm sure there are those out there who would -- of course for different rooms of their homes, etc.

Well, the only thing I sometimes regret in such “multicolor” product offer is when you buy a new B&O product in neutral/aluminium color right after the launch, only to learn six months later there comes a (for example) Harmonies line which might fit even better to your aesthetics... ...nothing wrong with the original one, of course - but if you knew some color you particularly like will come you would have waited for it.

And about the Harmonies color, I can imagine it looks spectacularly luxe.
