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.

Hi Michael,

I know that you are informed way better than me. There is a beostore my hometown, that makes YouTube life sessions every working day and in there he said, that he didn‘t Receiver and Information about a delay of the april presentation. That’s all I know.

Maybe it‘s presented then and sold some day in September / october?

https://youtu.be/9FqbFANKXo0

This is the feed to the YouTube Video. It is spielen in german. A question was, is B&O going to perish. The answer was no.

Later he states, that he got a message from b&o at that Date (thursday I believe) that everything is schedule, and also the new products are in time for presentation. Maybe, or possible I‘m wrong, but i just want to believe it‘s true ;-)

I'm happily looking forward to a new B&O remote and hope it's again something special from Bang & Olufsen.


... but hopefully without any "Kvadrat" wool Big Smile

Wishlist: Bluetooth / WLAN / Infrared commands mixed together without any switching between modes.

Based on some pictures on fccid.io website, It seems that it is a product without Kvadrat wool, it is a product with aluminium material
It is a circular metal, like the essence but with a screen.

The picture is not so clear, but if you are interested, you can search on google with this keyword "fccid.io Beoremote Halo"

It is better for me to know the design earlier. Because I hate guessing and having this.... unease feeling “What’s it going to look like?”

It is the design that we can see, it does not tell exactly the specifications and the pricing yet. Thus, I still wait for the full introduction, although I saw some of the pictures
