Hey guys, so I visited my local B&O dealer today. While I was discussing a probable upgrade, he told me that B&O is about to come up with some out of the world, extraordinary products this year and that he was not at liberty to say. Is that true? Does anyone here have any idea?

A wild stab in the dark surround sound system, and maybe some cool cans :-/

The sooner the better as I've lent most of my A8's out, and they don't seem to want to come back..

Beosound Stage, Beovision 8-40, Beolit 20, Beosound Explore.

My dealer often tells me the same thing and, only when pushed, starts telling me about the forthcoming 'amazing' products, leaving me distinctly underwhelmed. My dealer told the about the A3 about a year before the release and made it sound like it was a world-beating revolutionary product :)

I'm sure there's some good stuff on the way, but a dealer just making a random forward-thinking assumption, doesn't get me too excited.

If you read the language this was written in, could you give us a synopsis in English?

Mistake made on my part.

Do not let that fool you!

That is one of Peter Pans "wish-for-projects" - a new digital/wireless speaker.

Don't think that that will ever come/it won't be in the future line up... Paradise

And how does that fit in to this thread, exactly? You have read the rules? Apologies if you weren't able to understand the complex sentences and long words.

Could you please explain what you mean by that comment Moxxey?  I'm sure it wasn't meant that way, but it does come across as pretty arrogant..

I'm sure there's an innocent explanation and it was meant completely differently to how it appears.  Smile

You've got it!  I didn't see the "quote" link when I posted my original response.

This shows how easy it is to misunderstand posts without a clear context.

FYI to everybody: if you click on the "replied on" link in the post caption, if will take you to the post the author was replying to. It's a good idea to check it before starting to throw stones.

I don't know if anyone here is familiar with Leo Laporte's TWiT network, but one of the shows they do, "Home Theater Geeks", interviewed a pair of gents from the "WiSA" Wireless Speaker and Audio group on this past Monday's episode. These guys are doing some pretty incredible things with full LOSSLESS wireless audio in a wide open section of the 5GHz frequency spectrum. They mentioned that B&O are one of their initial launch partners and that products should be forthcoming before the end of this year from many of their partners. No clue what B&O has in store for this technology, but I immediately thought of them before they were even mentioned as a partner, since this technology works best with amplified speakers...

In any case, the wireless speaker thing is probably real. Whether this is truly exciting or not is more difficult to say.

That is HIGHLY interesting!

With Bang & Olufsen as a member of the WiSA Association we MIGHT expect something wireless coming soon.

In the future Bang & Olufsen needs to be one step ahead - not one step behind.

A new (and rather annoying) policy is to keep the lid on new products until they are ready for launch. The BeoLab 15-16 launch was a surprise to most dealers as they received the news at the same day as visitors to www.bang-olufsen.com

I do think that we will have less accurate gossip in the future - unless we have someone on this forum with very good contacts at StruerCool
