Earle:

A bit confused by something, and can't quite figure this out.... 

Is it a BT/wireless speaker designed to be charged up when low on battery, or a mains-powered speaker that has the option to be portable? 

My personal opinion is the latter although it does fit your first option also.

As always, I shall wait until I see one in the flesh to give a definitive opinion, but one of the press photos that was sent to me shows the light wood grille at such a angle that the shadow of the speaker cutout underneath can be seen.

Unfortunately his makes it look like one of those old radios wit a beige coloured grille, where the cloth has got so dirty, you can see the shape of the speakers marked out in dust and grime!

Hi guys, maybe a dumb question but is it possible to use my Beoremote one, hit the music button and choose Tunein on the Level? Or internetradio? 

Can the BeoSound 2 do that or the Balance?

Thanks for any reply guys.

Sandyb:

Agreed - not only does the BS2 sound good deal better than the BS1, I would take some convincing that the Level sounds as good as the BS2.

I own a BS2, BS1, Edge, Stage and Balance and can safely say the BS2 is the standout of the bunch. It's not A9 class, but it's very balanced.

I have a feeling the new Level will be more like the A6?

How long will it take before we see some SKINIPLAY covers for the BS Level?

What would you want?

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

IMHO is the BS Level designwise pure reincarnation of the Beolit 500 (60's version).

Just my 2 cent...

I think it fits several incarnations depending how you look at it. I thought of a single BeoLab 5000 speaker when I first saw it hung on the wall. But its also reminiscent of a BeoSound 1 (original version), the A6 like Moxxey says, a BeoLit 500 as you suggest and who knows what else. It does seem that B&O have gone for a more traditional approach design wise with a modern twist, which I think they have pulled off very nicely. The display definitely gives it the finishing touches.

BeoAnna:

Curly:

Level or a pre-loved BeoSound 2...? Which and why?

I guess it really depends what you want from the speaker.

Personally I own the BS2, BS1, BeoLit 17, and a couple of A1’s so while I have yet to listen to the Level I am familiar with both the BS1 and BS2 and I feel that the BS1 and Level are a little similar in that they’re rather powerful semi-portable speakers with a battery inside.

From a purely acoustic perspective I absolutely do not see the Level matching up with the BS2. As it stands the BS2 blows away the BS1, and with its Acoustic Lens and its 5 1/4” woofer the BS2 is unbelievably good at filling a very decent sized room with chest-thumping music. I’m a huge fan of the BS2 and will be keeping mine until it cannot be serviced anymore. I’ve always said that the BeoSound is more of a BeoLab speaker.

Aesthetically I love both the BS2 and Level, but extra points will have to go to the Level purely because I love some of the BeoMaster design elements it possesses; it truly is a classic and I’ll definitely be very happy to own one.

Ultimately I can see myself owning both as I’m sure that the Level will fit right at home in a smaller room.

If I could only choose one speaker though, it’ll probably be the BS2 because for me the sound will always come first.

As always though everyone’s entitled to their own preferences!

You've pretty much nailed every point I would have made. The BeoSound 2, which is my favourite product right now in the range for a whole host of reasons is currently my main speaker downstairs in the lounge and kitchen. The Level will be perfect for putting in my main bedroom and will then replace BeoPlay P6 and A1 speakers I currently use. I think it'll be the perfect addition to my home at this time.

Fansastic:
If it had NL, I would have ordered one already!

Flashback of the NL rand on the Balance introduction a year ago. They really should include the NL on both Balance and now Level already.

Designwise it is love at first sight

 

I agree completely.  The moment I saw it I decided to buy it . . .  and then I discovered no NL.  :(

The day they add the NL is the day I buy one.  (Or buy two.  My God, I love this thing!)

 

Absolutely brilliant, B&O.  Bravo!!

I’d like to see a BS Level Vs. BS 1 comparison.

They are in the same price bracket and they seem to have similar specs.

I think it’s also a bit like the A6 with its built in handle

I wonder if they have it a handle they would have called it a Beolit ? Like the old Beolits. It seems to have the same sort of feel.

It feels like somebody will come with an accessory leather strap and floor stand…

I actually wasn’t too impressed from the initial pictures. But having seen it in the video I really like it. (I’ve also been around B&O long enough to know that everything always looks so much nicer in the flesh.)

I’ve been thinking about a BS 1 or 2 for my kitchen/diner but this might be the one to go for. The wood finish is great and will complement my BL18s.

It seems like a very well thought-out product even down to the elegance of the charging solutions.

Price point is very appealing too.

I’d love to hear what the sound is like from anyone who has heard it. It’s at times like this I really miss having a dealer 5 minutes walk away since @Sheffield closed.
