Hi Beoworlders,

I am interested to know what you would ask B&O to make if they offered to build one item just for you for Christmas?  Please feel free to comment below, or via the link to this video review which covers the responses so far:-

I have added some suggestions at this link to start things off.......

Kind regards, Steve.

Jeff:
I think you're right Steffen, although there are a number of traditional speaker manufacturers that manage to stay in business.

In the UK, dealer Richer Sounds currently list 235 passive speakers against 62 active. B&O were too quick to abandon the passive market.... just imagine how they could have kept a market presence with an updated passive speaker like the S45/ S45.2.

Graham

I think one of the main reasons B&O dropped passive speakers was that in order to achieve good performance in the form factors/size they wanted style wise they were pretty much forced to go active. You can play games with bass boost and extension you just can't with passives, and B&O moved away from the idea of selling components that worked with other brands and systems and went even more insular, with all B&O systems/setups. I don't personally think that was the best idea but it's the direction they took.

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

Millemissen:

A ML/NL Converter Light - just to connect the oldschool sources (of e.g. a BeoSound 9000) to the NL network (nothing more nothing less)........was my wish years ago.

Today - hmmmm.....support for Spotify Connect on the newer devices - not much to ask, or?

MM

You have my vote for both!

BL3 MK3.. J

New BS 9000  or…

 

BS5  with all candys ( DHMI output, dolby ATMOS option, plex, youtube, netflix,spotify, deezer, FM radio, DAB+, net radio, touch screen, min 5TB SSD disc, wifi, BT, optical IN+ OUT, top of the line DAC,  app for phone or tablet, and…solid SW !!!!

Ok..ok…i'm dreaming..but it is not impossible.

It can be done …as BS5 it allready just a computer with outside screen.

You just upgrade a compurer part + add touch screen glass part.

Maybe we can build one and send it to B&O as demo version ..ha ha

Thanks guys,

Some interesting ideas so far - let's hope Beosanta has our wish lists covered Big Smile

I will add a +1 for the "Beolab 30" speakers with BL50 tech but in a reduced size.  In exchange, I would want to buy B&O a Devialet Phantom Reactor to spur on their creativity and challenge them further..... Whistle

Please keep the ideas coming!

Kind regards, Steve.

Another revolutionary device:

a 40" TV... There are a lot of household who do not have the space to place a 55" tv. Or want a an additional tv for the kitchen/bedroom/study...

The point of a full agile environment is not to worry about solution mode but to dream

A multiroom-version of a single BeoLab 3000 with Kvadrat-cloth.

Could be a beautiful NL-speaker that fills the gap between the M5 (€ 599) and the BS1 (€1500). A speaker with a touch of aluminium and some Kvadrat magic. Wall hung or integrated in a Montana or Pastoe-cabinet...

Should be easy to DIY: Take a BL3000, tuck and airport express inside, buy kvadrat fabric by the meter and follow any recloth tutorial Smile
