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.

I finally found it, but I had to use Bing instead of Google.

I got it in Bing, too. This is a beautiful piece!

I’m little unclear about how it will get power, however.

USB-C/DC 5-30 V/Ethernet (PoE)”

So the wall will have to be pre-drilled to accommodate it, whereas a Moment remote can take a replaceable battery and just be affixed anywhere on a wall. Bummer.

Currently: BeoLab 17, BeoLab 18, BeoSound Core, Beosound Level, Beosound A1 2nd Gen, BeoPlay S8 Connection Hub, Essence Remote

Previously: BeoSound 1 non-GVA

There is no manual for it on that site yet. I wish they had included photos of the screen in operation.

Wow that halo looks great! Very curious how the display looks.

This might be the new center piece of anyones B&O collection. Does anyone know when it will be in the stores?

The H95 looks huge to start with...if it syncs with the beovisions it might be interesting..

Indeed - while it looks very nice. whether I want one or not will depend on the scope of what it can do.

While it will obviously be able to control in built sources of various B&O music products (A9, BS 1,2 etc), it would be awesome if it could see the DLNA music that my Moment has folded in.

If it does, then we're off and running (for me).

And I wonder what it can do TV control wise - anything beyond volume control would be interesting, though I doubt.

Perhaps not too long to find out.

It’s massively interesting device.

Will it be able to connect to BLI and control lights etc?

I'm curious to see how easy it will be to switch between devices. Hopefully fewer buttons to navigate than a BeoRemote One to switch between devices. I'm already envisioning one in bronze for my kitchen. It would look great with all of the copper in my kitchen, and I could readily control the BeoSound 1 in the kitchen as well as the BeoPlay A6 in the dining room.

I'm crossing my fingers that they're not forgetting the NL/ML converter.

Something like this could be a great light switch replacement for the main room if it can control the lights.

Also it looks to be a good solution for “link” room remote control.

I have an essence mk2 with wheelie in my kitchen but this could replace the wheelie
