Hi all!

So I was very lucky to receive an 'as new' copy of 'From Spark to Icon' for Christmas from my family Big Smile

I had no idea this was such a superb and weighty tome!

The copy I have has a signature by Jens Bang(?) - but I wondered if this was an actual / real signature or just a part of the print? Photo enclosed.

Also can anyone tell me what the differences are between this book and 'From Vision to Legend'?

Thanks!

Hi,

I believe 'From Spark to Icon' is the updated version of 'From Vision to Legend' who (I also believe but wouldn't mind a confirmation) was first edited for the 50th (?) anniversary of the brand as a gift for best customers. So 'From Vision to Legend' ends with Besosound 9000, Century, 2500, Beovision Avant and Beolab 1 and 4000, where 'From Spark to Icon' goes beyond with more recent products.

I do know that the update part also exist as a separate book.

'From Vision to Legend' has a dark red cover instead of the White and Silver one of 'From Spark to Icon'.

As for the signature part I dont know…

It's part of the print; mine is identical Smile
