As the BS9000 is/was so well liked, would anyone buy a relaunched/updated version if B&O were to do it?

I just lost any faifh on new serious B&O products coming.

Could get a Beosound 2 when my Beosound 9000 MK3 breaks or a Beosound 35 if it's still around.

A BS9000 MK4 don't think so even if it could be tempting with Beolab 18.

If you agree or not BS9000 is a masterpiece of mechatronics. Now you can do it by inserting separate laser under each disk and move clamper arm just to simulate "old" version.

I would love to see a project (similar to that of upgrading the old speakers) where the classic B&O CD players get upgraded with blu-ray players to make them a bit more useful. Of course, they would also need HDMI and ethernet connections for the HDCP updates. For example, my BeoCenter 2 is now useless as a DVD player since my Oppo provides far better upscaled video. A BeoSound 2300, BeoCenter 2, and BeoSound 9000 as blu-ray players would be gorgeous.

It would be great to throw in SACD as well.

Yes, with B&O marketing “like no one else” the motorised TV’s and BS9000 were so unique to B&O so it was a surprise that the horizon got launched without the motorised option.

The BS9000 and other music systems all had that B&O magic, motorised doors and real talking pieces. I am sure with all their tooling they can once again produce a unique product that you simply must have.

I think they sold most of their tooling/molds for it. Don’t remember where i heard it, but either way there is no real reason to hold on to it for this long and not use it(especially b&o being b&o Stick out tongue)

Someone at B&O should have held those molds in their hands to see if they sparked joy.

Launching a new model costs a lot of money and you have to sell a lot of products to get the money back …and earn something. Personally I doubt that it would be possible to sell a lot of mk IV.

But there is much cheaper option as there are a lot of BS9000 in people’s homes.

I would be extremely happy if B&O or someone on appointment of B&O would produce modified PCB 1 (radio) equipped with DAB+ reception.

Then new laser pickup (just pickup) with modified PCB 41 could be produced enabling playing music from DVD/SACD and/or Blue Ray.

Maybe it could be done through crowfunding ?
