Hi Miki,

It took a lot of persuasion!  Lee is a natural in front of the camera, so it is great to get the benefit of his experience here - he really knows his stuff!

What time on Christmas Eve should I launch the video - is daytime or evening (UK time) best for Beoworlders?

Kind regards, Steve.

This will be a great video for sure. I am considering a pair of BL5s but not too sure of the pros and cons now that they are a few years old and second hand so personally this could be really helpful in my decision making. I think I might prefer a day time video as I know I’ll be settled into a routine sat watching tv by the evening with a glass or two of Bailey’s! Of course whatever you decide will be fine Steve I am sure. Really looking forward to this and to hearing from you both. Cheers, Simon.

Great speakers but the spares situation would be a concern.

My vote is 3pm UK time, people get home and shopping is mostly done etc around 4 people here will be fully home and probably the same there. Just in time for dinner to watch it or save it for just after dinner Stick out tongue

Lee should really come on BeoTalk too now that he’s so internet famous Big Smile

Thanks guys,

I think we are looking at 12pm UK time (1pm Europe, 7am EST) for the premiere on Christmas Eve, this way people can still catch up later if they have work/shopping to do Cool

I'm also hoping to get Nick from B&O Wilmslow on the video, more details to follow...

Kind regards, Steve.
