Are there any members left,who have originally joined the connoiseurs club ?

I know that one or two guys are left.

But how many are we?

Hi alls,

Maybe it's time to expand the circle and call for new members!

What's the Connoisseur Club?

Regards.

The origins of Beoworld ( note no capital W in the middle) are shrouded in mystery and go back to the 1990's. I've been around since near the beginning and I don't know the whole truth and I suspect that nobody does or is willing to admit that they do.

Homophobia, porn, deception, hotel in France, museum project, possibly money, all feature in the story. If I told you everything I think I know, I am afraid I may need to kill you!

Suffice to say, the Connoisseurs Club was a veiled attempt to extract money from people to ostensibly cover the costs of the Beoworld project and promised online access to a collection of user and service manuals. In truth I am not sure which costs were being covered by what.

Eventually, a knight in shining armour in the form of Lee Marriott turned up and bought the original Beoworld ( I assume money changed hands ) and used it to advertise his LifeStyle AV project, while building the website that it is today.

This may be an elaborate story (note todays date!) and no criticism is intended of anyone living or dead.

All the ingredients for a "Based on a true story" Netflix movie Wink And joeyboygolf just provided the digest version.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.

I thought you were talking about the official B&O UK Connoisseurs Club, which as I recall was the zero interest financing offer. I had a physical plastic card for it when I bought one of my early pieces - perhaps a new BC9500.
