I saw the Halo at my dealer on Saturday, and although I was already intrigued since the first leaked video it didn’t disappoint at all, knowing that some people do not like it.

I would have a very limited use-case for my BS1, as my other B&O products are too old, but I still want to have one. That it is a great achievement.

There is probably no good rationale explanation why one would spend ca 700$ on a volume remote control. I am now having tough discussions with the FS (wife), as she states ‘you buy Halo I say Hejdå (goodbye) Big Smile

And then my dealer came up with the great idea that I need a Core as well for my BS9000 😀

I love his enthusiasm.

“I have to work on my core” I tell my wife in return Smile

To be continued, and please do see the Halo IRL it is amazingly cool.

Which is why I have cut out any B&O control from my music / radio listening - only the speakers remain.

Roon is my control interface - if I must use an iDevice, then at least Roon's interface and software work extremely well - and at times the Linn app(s) too, as I have a Linn streamer / DAC in my main room. The Linn app even shows me a lot of my podcast feeds from TuneIn!

Yes, Roon and a Linn streamer is expensive, but newsflash, so is B&O.

The Halo's design / form factor limits how useful I can ever get.  The screen is too small for searching / browsing in the end. Which implies it was only ever going to be a volume control and starter for predefined experiences. Fine for those who are happy with just that. But with the Moment gone, they're telling you to use your phone / tablet for everything else. In which case, if I am generally constantly having to use my iPad for example, what use is a 700 pound / euro volume dial?

 

 

 

Severed_Hand_of_Skywalker:

The Moment was proof that B&O has no Clue when it comes to software and is why I am so scared to buy a halo now with the "promise" that it will be more useful in the future. They couldn't even get the Moment to work with base features after 2 years of trying.

As I understand it, there are no possibilities to browse media e,g search songs in Deezer.

 

Correct?

I'm seeing it tomorrow (had an appointment anyway, just by chance).

But as my dealer suggested to me a while ago, the Halo will lily have a fairly limited function set on launch.

Its not for me anyway to be honest, however nice it looks.

As a Roon user, this will offer little beyond volume control and radio station starting.

I wonder if the BS Balance will be updated for NL tomorrow....in order to work with the Halo.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Had a look at in the store today, unfortunately no support for Beosystem 4, so no BV 11 og Beoplay V1 support. 

What if they're in an integrated setup?  I have a BV11 and Moment in an integrated setup and was considering a Core and the Halo as a replacement for the Moment.

I now have tracking confirmation from UPS for my Halo. My dealer has said that B&O has plans for the Halo to become "a powerful part of the home automation solution."

Good for you.

I am still sceptic, but eager to learn how that can happen.

That would be very exciting. Wonder why B&O wouldn't promote the Halo as a key part of home automation/integration if it were true. $900 remote needs to do something an essence remote can't.

Based on pictures of the Halo, it’s display specifically, and the user manual, it does much more than the Essence.
