Hello Everyone!

I was approached yesterday by Bang & Olufsen about the possibility of them having a 30 minute 'Teams' chat with up to 10 of our Members.

The Bang & Olufsen Design Team would like to speak to people who are heavily invested in BeoLink Multiroom (Network Link, specifically) about their experiences, good or bad. 

The initial stage would be to complete a 5 minute survey online (provided by Bang & Olufsen in Denmark) and then from the completed surveys they would like to select 10 people to speak to personally for half an hour with a view to gaining a real understanding of how their customers use it, how they like or dislike it, and I would guess to receive constructive criticism (and some great ideas and suggestions) from the people who know and love the brand and products.

We are the 'hardcore' buyers and enthusiasts of B&O, and they would like to hear what we have to say!

So, if it's okay with everyone I'll post a link to the survey either later today or tomorrow?

Kindest Regards

Lee

I've just been interviewed by Claudine and Lyle from Bang & Olufsen. It was a very good conversation :) 

I've signed an NDA, so I can't elaborate apart from saying that (1) the main topic was the current use of my system and (2) the discussion went way beyond the things discussed in this topic or the next software update. Good things!

Also had interview with them today. Very interesting and positive of the direction they are validating use cases. I hope this will turn into reality soon.

I had my interview a couple of days ago, and I agree with the sentiment that it was exciting to hear some of Claudine and Lyle's ideas.  I would love it if I could trade notes with the others who were interviewed, but of course will not do so due to the NDA.

Who else has been interviewed?

Hello ladies and gents,

I have been interviewed as well and I can say that it was very exciting first of all to meet the people behind the keyboards, and the avatars. What was discussed was very interesting and confirms that the brand looks to the future with optimism, certainty and great ideas.

Sandyb:

The idea is that B&O are gong to add back NL (its going to be called Speaker Link) and Touch to Join to the newer Mozart speakers.

That update is not coming soon, from what I understand - and whether it works exactly the same as NL on current NL speakers, or if there are some subtle differences remains to be seen.

I’ve been talking to my dealer yesterday and he said the Speaker Link update is different from the NL-update. Speaker Link has to do with some kind of native stereo pairing (so not dependent on Google) and comes before the NL-update. Speaker Link has been pushed back to make sure the software is glitch free. NL is still on the roadmap for the end of the year.

Just received a phonecall from B&O DK saying that I was not selected this time and asked if it was ok to keep my details on record for the next 6 months as they want to do these kind of chats in the future too. Also.. I was told that the response was overwhelming!

They could have done it in an email... bu they chose to do it by phone!  Nice!

Had the interview today. Two very pleasant people from B&O, a nice (but too short...) talk mixed with my bad english. ;-)


It's a smart move from B&O to conduct these kind of research interviews!
