Hi all,

Just noticed that the brass editions of 18/19/50/90 has been removed from the website.

Is this colour discontinued by B&O?

Hope not as I still have a Harmony and BL50 in brass on my wish list

That would be disappointing, as it's such a beautiful colorway that goes well with our mid-century modern decor. It's a good thing my brass/smoked oak 50s are already on order (due to be installed next month) to match all our other brass/smoked oak products.

I have two BeoRemote Halos in bronze at home and on a whim added a BeoRemote Halo in brass for my work office. I found that I really love the brass. I had always had the connotation of brass being associated with '80s tacky. Yet, B&O really pulls it off as classy.

Oh, and I was trying to see what the Brass / Smoked Oak combo was like on the Harmony but i can't see what they look like (apart from pictures on the net which are different each time i look at them). 

It seems the brass is a cool tone, and the gold is a bit warmer, so maybe they will replace the brass with gold

Brass is hard to judge by from a picture. It will blend in your interior very well. In my Scandinavian type interior it looks like a bit warmer alu colour. The Gold tone shouts out way more, for me it does not work.

I really pity the decision to EOL the brass colour (if this is the case). I was hoping for a long lasting colour scheme, so I can extent my brass collection with the years to come. Unfortunately it does not match and mix with alu that well. Same goes for Bronze imo. You are only fine with the black editions, but then again that looks very good but misses a bit of B&O magic on the aluminium design.

I prefer Brass over Gold and would have been tempted into BL28, Level or Contour already if brass was available.

I know about the bespoke possibilities but I don’t like to pay extra for a colour that is / was a regular option.
