I was wondering if we could assemble both a little positivity, hope and some reliable indications of new B&O products on the horizon in the next 6-12 months.

1. Insiders with info please feel free to contribute...

2. Bang & Olufsen employees feel free to contribute as much info as possible without getting sacked...

3. Like a cold ward spy, I would happily sleep with a B&O employee (female of course) to get this info were it not for being married. For King & Country...Ha ha!

4. Dude1 you have given us some tit-bits of veiled info so feel free to contribute...

5. I will start - B&O will be releasing a successor to the Beosystem 3 successor (costing about £5000) that can be used with 3rd part TV panels and a new TV stand that will impress and is rather unusual but cool. I know that's not very exciting but together we are greater than the sum of our parts...!

BEFORE WE ALL GET CARRIED AWAY - let this not become a rumour mill or a wish-list that never comes to fruition. We will audit this thread in 12 months and those that with right/reliable/accurate postings now will be awarded later and those that are confirmed as blatant fabricators will face the chop with Madame La Guillotine...!

The fact is that a thread like this is always going to meander - the amount of information we get with regard to new products is always going to be limited - B&O are quite good about keeping products under wraps and so they should be. Therefore quite a lot of what you get is going to be speculation and gossip. Nothing wrong with that - this is a forum after all! On the whole, the more seasoned posters often have more informed opinions so I would be against too tight regulation anyway!

The new top of the range speakers have been heard in their development stage and are pretty impressive. They did however come with the optional curtain in front finish!!

I had a listen to the new H6 headphones a few weeks ago in the NYC Flatiron shop and was told that the shipment was en route from Denmark. While they still are not listed on the online store, I am very excited to get my hands on a pair. I don't recall if they had any H3's in stock but I'll be interested to see how those compare to the A8 line. (As a side note, the sales rep told me the US pricing was $399 for the H6.)

I got a card in the mail encouraging me to go to my local store and  "listen and pre-order" the h3 or h6.  $249 for the h3, $399 for the h6. I see that abt.com (my local store) has h3s in stock and h6s on back order.  Unfortunately,  I really only use headphones on airplanes, and I don't think the h3s have enough noise isolation, but I may go take a look anyway.  To me, the h6s look to be the better value ("only" $150 more for a large over the ear headphone with nice leather), but they're too big for travel and I have bl8000s for office listening.

Other new products?   I haven't a clue.

Is that due to more cut backs.

Well - the thread is already sliding into the usual complaining..

Please take the question asked from seethroughyou serious - there are lots of other threads about 'suggesting a one-legged A9'.

 

Quite a lot has been written about the TV production being transferred to the Czech and the 75 people who loose their jobs in Struer. Some even think that this is the end of B&O.

Less known is that they are increasing the aluminium production in Struer, they even hire more people/cancel the summer vacations - because a lot of new items are being produced at the moment for several new products coming this autum.

Employees talk about 2 (or more) new loudspeakers and other things. Most of them do not know exactly what is coming - they 'just' make the items! It wouldn't surprice me if one or two coloum speaker are coming soon.

They keep things very tight nowadays in Struer, and noone is really allowed to talk about what he/she might know.

However it is my impression - talking to  some of the workers in Struer - that we will see several new products this year. ...

....just as Tue has promised Surprise

 

P.S. @ seethroughyou - what is "a new tv stand that will impress...."?

The 'BeoSystem 4" already was official announced - not as 'BSys4', but as 'successor of the BSys3'.

That it is meant to be used with 3rd party TV panels was not mentioned as far as I know.

Greetings Millemissen

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

W5bno123, Miles and Puncher you have within a few replies been found guilty of bringing a positive thread that encourages fellow B&O fans and our beloved company into disrepute. I shall reserve sentencing till later but all I can say is bring your buckets to Madame La Guillotine to me 12 months hence.

Let's try and do something different from moaning - B&O need our support. We all feel let down and a tad disappointed with some of the gear but I believe that B&O know that and are doing all they can to change things this year. Can we all try to stop kicking B&O whilst it's down. If you think you can design a better product than the current staff in Denmark and have a good design draw it, post it on the forum and hopefully B&O will see it and incorporate it.

Millemissen, I know nothing else about the new stand(s) as that was all the dealer would say!

You are all commanded to go forth and drill your dealers this weekend for information. Be subtle!

Hi - if the 'BeoSystem 4' is truly designed for seamless use with third party panels that is a great step forward. As a prior BV4-65 owner I would buy this new product without hesitation - I adore B&O speakers and really enjoy the benefits of full integration but want an OLED panel. Although a tiny sample I know five other people who would also buy this product. I am also excited about significantly refreshed column speakers.
