Hi Beoworlders!

Which is the most special or unusual B&O store you have visited? Care to share a photo or video? Here is one to start you off - this store is one of my favourites, it is made from the timbers of a medieval ship!

When we were in Copenhagen earlier this year we visited a B&O store there and it was fully fitted out with the rotating padded walls but seemed much shabbier than the ill-fated central London converted bank off New Bond Street.

I have not visited this store that opened in New York, but my fiancé’ did. The store’s web page shows it is closed for rebuilding at present.

Nice find, Steve.

Maybe not as ‘fancy’, but surely special - the B&O shop in Silkeborg/DK.

Located in an old town hall - integrated with a nice café and a restaurant.....have a look:

Wow, there are some great B&O stores about! Big Smile The old London flagship store (Hanover Square) was great, I heard a rumour that the owner of the building forced B&O out at short notice?

Any more great stores out there?

By the way, can anyone guess which B&O store this is (taken in the 1950s, before it became B&O)?

On a corner, big windows, busy street...

My first thought was a London store, but the more I look at it - the more it looks like Mark's store in Northampton? Confused

Living here in the US, just finding a B&O store would make it unusual. Sad

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad

You must be thick skinned Steve.  I lost count of the local people who came to buy something from me and complained about the previous owner of B&O Cambridge.  Was his name David ?

He seemed to think that he had a monopoly and nobody should sell used B&O except him.  Needless to say, I didn't get on with him!

Hi Lee,

Yes, spot on!  Northampton it is Yes - thumbs up

Hi joeyboygolf,

David retired from Cambridge quiet a few years ago, it is now run by Paul Blake who is very approachable and easy to get on with.  I would encourage you to visit Cambridge again if you haven't been in since the change of ownership.  The store layout is now much better as well, making a very nice place to see the current and recent products.

Kind regards, Steve.

How about this one? I haven't been there, but stumbled upon it by accident and thought I'd share it here Smile

Not that kind of special, but this is my local store, and the first of the concept stores.

I have always loved the Dutch B&O store in Roermond.

Selling B&O but also other hifi products.

Part of the store building is a house that is completely furnished as such with real multiroom / NL experience.

So maybe not that unusual, but perhaps a good example of how a B&O dealership can be?

My favourite store was the Berlin store I visited a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely fantastic. Packed full of kit in various locations. They had so much kit you could compare an Edge on the floor against wall-mounted or A9 floor standing against wall-mounted. They even had 3 Eclipse TVs in various setups.

I guess the B&O store in Bergen, Norway, is unusual as it has its own B&O technician and workshop able to do repairs.
