Hi everybody, 

Is there any infos about BeoPlay planned launches? Last year we knew that several new stuff will arrive but what about 2013?

I'm quite curious / excited to see what could come out...

Will they integrate 'Airplay direct' streaming (without need of using a router)?

Thanks

The surround sound system I'm pretty sure will be in the shops by May. About £3,000. 2 models, one for us lot and another for somebody without a Beovision.Maybe some Bluetooth headphones too..

Just a wild guess :-)

Beosound Stage, Beovision 8-40, Beolit 20, Beosound Explore.

It would be nice if B&O also came out with a new surround processor (e.g., BeoSystem 4 or something similar in the Beoplay line) to go along with that new surround sound speaker system.....I know I'm itching for one...well, two actually....

The "for non Beovision sets" version does I believe, although not a Beosystem 3 replacement.

Not more speakers! The BeoLab15/16 anplifier 1 are great but sales of this difficult to install product will be tiny.

The shops are full of bl@@dy speakers!

What about a proper modern day music sustem!

The next procuts in the lineup are surround speakers. On  a spain forum there were clean pictures , but were removed. But I can say the speaker a rip of design from orb-audio.

The design is 95% the same even in size, the Bno innovation bring in sutpid funky colours.

Oh, god, those look awful!  I was hoping for something more substantial than that, what with people hinting at some new super speaker.

 

Oh, well, on the positive side, It's great that they're putting out even more/newer speaker models. Speakers have a longer shelf life than tellies, that's for sure.

Yes Gatex ! Orbaudio, Bowers & Wilkins, Kef, Bose... Enough manufactures making satellites speakers with a subwoofer. Bang & Olufsen is boring. No innovation at all. Hey B&O wake up !!

Well I guess if enough people are coming into the stores asking for them, it makes great sense.

Nobody asks me for separate surround sound speaker system I do however, get asked every day for 'surround bars'

The answer from B&O is A9, only one speaker is a real big innovation, surround and satellite speakers are from yesterday! And take a look to this wonderful design: plastic backside with wooden legs!

What backside would you prefer? Wood? Metal? Good luck with the acoustic properties of that.

 

On second thought, a painted finish would solve the look of it if you don't like black.
