I saw the Halo at my dealer on Saturday, and although I was already intrigued since the first leaked video it didn’t disappoint at all, knowing that some people do not like it.

I would have a very limited use-case for my BS1, as my other B&O products are too old, but I still want to have one. That it is a great achievement.

There is probably no good rationale explanation why one would spend ca 700$ on a volume remote control. I am now having tough discussions with the FS (wife), as she states ‘you buy Halo I say Hejdå (goodbye) Big Smile

And then my dealer came up with the great idea that I need a Core as well for my BS9000 😀

I love his enthusiasm.

“I have to work on my core” I tell my wife in return Smile

To be continued, and please do see the Halo IRL it is amazingly cool.

How are we to understand the table, you’ve found, then?
I interpreted it as the up-coming sw updates.

My products are set for manual updates since a while now.

Yes.

Have there been any such indications?

Probably too low a wattage. Try with a stronger adapter, eg. for an iPad.

My Halo arrived.

 

Decent. Fairly basic though, in my opinion. You can choose your connected speaker, adjust the volume, create a few presets and so on. You can't browse music, you can't see album tracks or anything in, say, a Spotify playlist.

But, it does what it says on the tin. If you want a quick volume controller this does the job and does it well.

Worth £700? No way. £400 max.

I really love the Halo.

I only have IR products, but i think it’s time to invest in some Multiroom speakers! 😀

A true B&O product. As Moxxey said, 750€ is very expensive, but B&O is expensive... 😔

I wish my Halo would arrive. Dealer is waiting for his stock to arrive. I am beginning g to wonder if US release is behind the rest of the world. The app still does not show the Halo and shows no update available. Anyone in the US have one?

I thought you said you cancelled it as it doesn't support many of your devices? Not convinced I'd get one if I was playing my BL50s and it couldn't control the volume.

The Halo just reminds me of a sphere BeoRemote One. Similar screen, idea and materials. Just 3x the price.

My initial impressions are that this thing can do an awful lot, but for anyone else then he who has set up the system, all the dis-payed linked sources (with long names) makes it quite a cluttered affair to control intuitively.

I look forward to coming updates.

Having got the impression from the Balance and other indicators that network link was a dead protocol, I am thrilled with this new tool that makes NL very much alive.

The remote function and the NL Multiroom are two different and independent things I'm afraid.

Really? No more than the BeoRemote One? I was playing with mine last night. Fairly limited. Or am I missing something.

I'm in the US and received my first one (bronze table) last Thursday on the launch date. I just ordered my second one (bronze table) yesterday. It seems that the color choice could have something to do with the availability. If you look at the B&O website, it shows the natural and brass table models are sold out. However, the bronze table model and all colors of the wall model are available.

Update: This morning, the B&O site shows the brass table model as being available again. It wasn't available last night.
