Thank you BeoVox, and thank god for that.

His response is symptomatic of the delusional attitude this thread has been characterised by.

We all know, and have done for a while, of the macro considerations (general and tech related) and the micro / B&O ecosystem questions / issues.

None of us are stupid, some may be upset, some less so - but the inference that we are ignorant of the above is insulting.

And the questions, which we are all aware of, around B&O is no justification for the heavy handed lecturing ("I understand the tech, you don't because you're all in denial or too upset (?)).  Ironic really, given how much he has got wrong with respect to the WISA dongle capability and other things too.

And sure, many of us (me too) will have been guilty of hasty, not well considered, passive aggressive comments over the years, maybe even to the point of repetition or wrong information or interpretation - but not to the extent of 6 months of endless misery, over and over again on the same single topic.

The lack of self awareness has been simply staggering.

Peter Pan:

@ BEOVOX141

Tråden er afsluttet for min part. Overskriften på tråden er nu stort set fuldt belyst. Dem der gider kan så debatere vider.

Min holdning for du på dansk, så kan du oversætte hvis du gider.

En årsag til, at nogen er nigativ, er nok fordi de føler at Bang & Olufsen's økosystemet er i fare, efter
Bang & Olufsen valgte LGs OLED TV, som BeoVision TV. Det kan jeg godt forstå, fordi mange har
investerede meget i Bang & Olufsen økosystem. LG har udviklet deres eget system, det er utopi at
tro LG tilretter sig til B&O's økosystem. Det må B&O selv klare, så længe de magter det. Så der
kommer en tid med forandring når TV'et er fra LG.

Jeg er tilfreds med MasterLink-systemet, men det er ikke længere muligt med direkte tilslutning til et
BeoSystem 4 TV. Det er udviklingen, og nogle gange mister vi noget vi havde. Men nye muligheder
kommer istedet. De dygtigste virksomheder overlever, og andre bukker under. Men en ting er sikker,
TV og lyd vil vi alle kunne købe os til, i en eller anden form.

Sadly Peter has succumbed, and will not continue the thread. Thanks guys, appreciated! No - thumbs down

He asked me to translate. Ill try my best to convey the message:

You guys are properly upset since the B&O ecosystem is jeopardized after the LG OLED was chosen to carry the legacy of the Beovison name.

Its only natural to feel that way since you invested heavily in the current B&O ecosystem. LG has an ecosystem of their own, and there is no way it will be adapted to B&O. They are on their own, for as long as it lasts! The inevitable change will come in the form of an LG TV.

I live happily with the Masterlink system, but from the dawn of Beosystem 4 this direct interface was lost.

Times are changing and sometimes we lose part of the past, but new options and possibilities will emerge.

Only the diligent companies will survive, the rest will simply disappear. But one thing is for sure: TV and sound equipment will always be available for sale in some shape or form.

I am not upset about the LG decision, which is why I continue to invest in the B&O ecosystem. I have had systems from other manufacturers in the past, but I have reverted to B&O for multiple reasons. I do not think using LG as a manufacturer jeopardizes the B&O ecosystem at all. LG is currently the benchmark when it comes to OLED displays, and I think TV's in general. In the past, B&O has used displays from other manufacturers, and I did not care one bit. As long as I get a nicely designed TV that works with my speakers and Multiroom I am happy. What upsets me about this thread is, in essence, what SandyB outlined in his last post. If Peter Pan is so convinced by the LG TV's, he should buy one (prices, especially used, have come way down) and then I would be very interested in a review of how he likes it and how he has gotten it to work with his existing B&O setup. However, this is not the right place to post pages and pages of advertising for an LG TV, and hypothetical pictures of how to integrate it. For me, the LG TV just does not offer everything a Beovision has to offer, and therefore I will continue to invest in Beovisions, even though they are not 100% perfect.

 

This will be my last post to this thread, and I predict this thread will fade away with loosing interest in this thread, by both the forum users and the OP.

To quote Peter Pan: "Over and out"

I am not so sure, that this will be the last post.

As much as I agree with most of you, that Peter Pan has taken it too far, too ridiculously far, I guess there will be something to discuss there (maybe in another thread, then).

Remember a couple of years ago, when the Loewe tv’s were ‘everyones darling’ - a lot of people were looking for an ‘alternative’ to a BV.

Given that we will see the LG OLEDs in the Bang & Olufsen shops along with the WiSA dongles for sale,....

(This might very well be part of the deal, that was made with LG a couple of years ago)

.....many new/old B&O costumers will be faced with the option of buying an LG - and maybe a couple of WiSA compatible BL’s.

And what if there actually will be a (NL compatible) B&O soundbar? That might even lead to selling further B&O NL devices/speakers.

All in all this might be good for the dealers (and in case of BL’s also for B&O), and it is definitely a sign of B&O being more open to all 3rd party nowadays.

Personally I’d hope for some BV’s (based on the LG’s for the tv/screen part) in smaller and more affordable sizes than the coming Harmony....that would be my personal priority.

But as an option, why not an LG tv, if B&O and the dealers have the right strategi.

I am for diversity in that matter.

So, I guess the subject LG and B&O wiil have to taken serious in the next years - but please don’t make a religion of it.

MM 

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Wow this thread is live again.

This thread now only seems to exist on an existential level so that we can debate whether or not it should exist. Wink

Personally, I could suggest Peter to set up a 2020 LG Oled thread to put a little party in the street.

Not the first time this has happened here.... but such is life on the Internet. I thought Peter Pan wanted to discontinue posting to this thread, or come back only after he knows how the WISA USB dongle works, but then again, we all got rick rolled, and I am posting again on this thread, even though I said I wouldn't.

 

By the way: The pictures are great! I really like the color scheme of Aluminium, brass, wood, and the gray/black speakers!

Will B&O not come with some kind of a loose surround 7.1 processor. Will I choose a setup like this when my BV.- 7 does not work anymore.

I will be faithful to B&O Beovox Penta. Yes - thumbs up

I am currently using Pioneer amp with LG C8 and I have been thinking if the C8 can decode and output optical audio. Wouldn't a simple device that accept decoded optical audio signal and split into 5.1/7.1 channel works? Of course we need to figure a way to output 12v trigger, but that would be a real space saver.

BL8000, BL10, BL4000, BL2, BL3 (Sold), Beocentre 2, Pioneer LX83 amp, LG C8
