Last night I was out in Edinburgh and we ended going to the Dome.

http://www.thedomeedinburgh.com

It's a very ornate bar and restaurant.

But the best bit, and if you looked very very carefully was the sound system that was dotted around every corner of the central barYes - thumbs up

Does anyone else ever see B&O out and about in public?

Neat sighting. I've seen Beovox C100s and C50s at a restaurant in Jackson Hole Wyoming. And in Orlando Florida, years ago, a good Chinese restaurant I frequented had a pair of Pentas, a Beosound 9000, and a Beolab 2000 for audio in the restaurant.

Nice find Chris. My parents lives literally 2 mins walk from that restaurant.

Next time I go to Edinburgh I know where I'll have a drink...

My dentist has a Beosound 2300 and Beolab 5000s in his waiting room. I lent them to him on a long term loan!! Big Smile

There must be a dozen of these 6000s in the lobby of the Bologna Carlton hotel!

Seems like such a waste to hide the designs of some of those classics, in the ways they were installed. Incidentally, the Goyard store in San Francisco has some BL3's prominently hung up by the ceiling... but then again, it was the former B&O store, so they probably just left 'em there.

Apart from the obvious Grand Hotel Struer I've seen a pair of Beovox 3000's in the Ateljee Bar at Hotel Torni in Helsinki. Also in Helsinki I think Hotel Haven has B&O tv's in the suites. And while I'm on a Finnish theme here there are two Beolab 8000's in the bar area of restaurant Albatros in Tammisaari.

As someone already mentioned, BL4000 are part of the dotation of a french luggages store line (I think it's "La Baggagerie").

There is one store where it sometimes pass by and the two silver BL4000 are abandoned on a top of a shelf, collecting dust or maybe melting from the inside :-). But they can be seen by the client and even from the street.

Quite a few years ago, I stayed at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona.  It had B&O in every room.  My room had a BS3000.  The speakers were hidden so I don't know what was there.  However, I looking at the pictures on the TripAdvisor site and I see rooms with a BV, BL4000s and the gull wing CD/DVD player.  I see another room with a BV, passive Beolabs and a BS9000.  In short, B&O all over the place.

If it was a Braun stereo, would it be the Ramsburgler?
