1990:

New audio engine was confirmed in the B&O press release of the Balance. No NL was announced to the dealers at Balance launch, but after dealer feedback management changed their minds and put NL on the new audio engine roadmap (confirmed by dealers such as B&O Manchester).

Are we still waiting for the new audio engine or is anything in the current balance already “new”?

Also... looking at this link https://webshop.telegrootgebruik.nl/product/376915/beosound-level-wood-front-cov-light-oak it's not only going to distributes by the B1 shops but also through the new distribution channels by TechData (basically any IT/computer store)

I'm only the messenger... The A9 is listed under Telepony Accessoires... Probably because it has bluetooth Laughing

@steve1977 the new audio engine debuted in the balance. The one in the Level should be 100% identical. What we still expect is new features not only released with the software of this new audio engine.

What new audio engine? I own an Edge, Stage (x2), Balance, BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2 (x2!). We'll have another debate another day on why I need so many wireless speakers...

Point is, I'm in a good position having owned an A9 MK1 and A6 to give a good opinion on the best sound. Discounting the A9 for a moment, which is frankly amazing, the BeoSound 2 completely trumps the sound from the Balance. It's far more balanced and rounded. I noticed after switching from using a BS2 for a year to the Balance. Balance sounded odd in the mid-range. Went back to the BS2 and immediately it felt an upgrade. Bass nearly as strong, but the mid-range just sounds more natural.

Will be interesting to hear the Level. The A6 didn't do it for me. Small flat speakers have a limited range.

I’m always amazed at your comments comparing the BS2 & Balance. I own a BS2 Gen2 and when the Balance came out I was wondering what I was missing since the Balance has Room Comp & way more drivers and power... but as it turns out I’m not missing anything!

Even my dealer said that they feel that the Balance is more for just filling a room with music whereas the BS2 is better for critical listening.

I do love my BS2 a lot though, and I’ve always felt that it’s more of a BeoLab than BeoSound speaker; heck in some cases I even prefer it over the BeoLab 17’s, and that’s one hell of a commendation given how underrated the 17’s are. It really puts the Balance in a weird spot though; it would be fine if it looked better than the BS2 but it doesn’t. So for me the only way up from the BS2 that’s not a BeoLab is the A9 if you have the floor space to sacrifice.

I’m in the same camp as you with 4x BS1 and bunch of other speakers. Not sure what i *need* them for, but clearly planning to buy even more. Just need to love them!

The key question for me is though whether we’ve indeed seen the end of NL and something new is on the horizon? I’d hate to see me buying even more NL speakers and then B&O releases a new multi-room setup or even a way to connect speakers in a surround environment (basically the new audio engine replacing wisa protocol).

Suggested by prorsum

The launch is planned for tomorrow so we'll quickly see what the Level is :

Concerning the NL and its future, I don't see B&O releasing something that replace it, if it's phased out it's just because the general public don't use it and prefer Airplay/Googlecast/Bluetooth. The question about a Beovision able to use a beosound as external speaker is interesting, but as the use is limited to speakers around a Beovision (Idon't see the point otherwise), you can still buy speakers without this functionality for a lot of places around your house where you only listen to music!

Tell us more please... Any price idea? I guess that the wooden model will cost a lot more compared to the fabric one.

See my reply here:

BeoAnna:

Price potentially acquired.

http://www.lpcomputers.cz/beosound-level-goldtone-alu-light-oak-ga_d181207.aspx

“Cena bez DPH” = Price without VAT. This is for Part Number “1200497” with the wood, so presumably the fabric version will be cheaper?

35 247.27 CZK to USD = 1,642 USD.

Not too bad I say!

B&O must be pretty pleased with themselves. They actually get to launch a product on the date they have chosen without too much information getting out beforehand to dilute the launch.

Which is something even Apple no longer manages to do!
