Indeed, really hope they make the network link update quickly :-)

Or it has been dropped and will rely purely on Airplay 2, Chromecast and Spotify Connect. Surprise

Probably no issue for new owners, only for those with existing equipment.

BeoAnna:

I’m 100% sold. This is jaw-dropping. This is such a perfect blend of modern and classic design and I particularly love the black strip with the illuminated lights behind them as they remind me of the BeoMaster systems of the past.

This is honestly one of the most B&O designs I’ve seen in an extremely long time. Couldn’t be happier! Well done!

I agree. A really nice touch and I too think this is a great product design that no doubt will sound fantastic. Very happy for B&O and hope to see many sales. I will buy one for my main bedroom. Great job guys.

So the spec sheet says something about the Connected speakers (range, I guess).

Is this the new platform which has been referred to in the past?

Connected Speakers is the name for all speakers with CC/AP2 (has been for a while), as opposed to the Bluetooth-only speakers.

Ah ok - though it doesn't say the same thing in the Balance spec / product sheet.

That may just be an oversight, and it should be in the Balance sheet.

Back in my box then...

According to BOTF B&O will release an update of the level to be compatible with the Halo in Q1/Q2 and the update for NL is planned for Q3/Q4 Smile

That would be great, as soon as it has NL I’ll buy one. So please B&O, hurry with the update!

Wonderful thing, need one at minimum once NL or equivalent and compatibility with Beoremote Halo is in place. And more units once stereo pairing is possible as "native" not through Chromecast as that fundamentally limits usability for anyone who want to use built-in streaming or is not in Google ecosystem.

Very eager to hear how it sounds! Supergood job B&O! Wink

What I have noticed is that DEEZER is NOT integrated in the Level or in the Balance. 

Is this the "new" thing that we will not be able to use Deezer with the B&O-app anymore with all new products from the new plattform? What I can see it is just Chromecast support, and with that You must use the native streaming app to controll the music.

This does seem to highlight the direction B&O are going (and what was explained to me by my dealer a while back after one of the big dealer meetings)

i.e that Airplay / CC and voice would be the primary control paradigms.

The implication of that decision seems to me the the B&O app would gain less emphasis and development resources, and I think over the last year or two we have seen just that.

I am pleased with the support for Spotify Connect - after all that is my main music source.

If you need Roon there just use CC as endpoint - should be sufficient for that sort of system.

And as per statement from Henrik/BOTF there will be support for NL later this year.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

But why is the new BS Level compatible with Beoremote ONE but the BS Balance not?

..... and that the B&O app will only be a setup/diag/information tool, not more.

Signs of this direction IMO, there is no more B&O app enhancements/fixes in the music area since a while, on the other side new Support, Diagnostic, History sections are being developed.
