Maybe I'm a little strange, but it really did not make the first impression to me at all.
It seems like something that might have been a wow factor 15 - 20 years ago.
I'm missing an innovative approach, a bold design and futuristicity that makes B & O unique.

Michael Anastassiades, who did the design, is a little bit steam-punk in his lighting designs, e.g. the lamp on his main page: http://michaelanastassiades.com .  However, his design for Flos, the "IC Lights" series, e.g. https://usa.flos.com/modern-table-lamps/IC-Lights-T , is pretty sleek.  I think it's this "tangential attachment" style (minimal touching) that is echoed in the Edge.

Sure - but I prefer facts.

Thank you and Moxxey for replying ... my question to AussieMichael related more to the Melbourne retail scene.

As regards facts, sadly the fact is that IFA has come and gone with no announcement of junior version of the BeoLab 90 and 50.

I don’t think the Edge is what some of us wishfully speculated would be “the BeoLab 30”.

BeoNut since '75

And considering wasn’t B&Os IFA booking last minute ? Or was that the announcement but I was reading on this forum earlier ?

By the way - a BL30 would be bigger than the BL20 🤔

Again....I prefer facts to rumours (although rumours are fun).

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Whatever anyone prefers, fact of the matter is we all need to wait until (possible) CES announcements of much demanded BL3 replacements and the assumed TV-Soundbar. Spending money on B&O on hold for another 6-9 months. If it works for B&O, works for me too.

Definitely not. They were both listed to attend and to host an early morning event, months ago. Shame there's only one new product though.
