  • Re: Splashy treble and a little rumble - Beogram 5005, re-tipped MMC4

    Yes, the MMC4 does not help things there.

    I agree to certain degree, the cheaper B&O products not being made in Denmark I can live with if that decision enables the company's high end stuff to be made in Denmark. When you are paying a premium for products, it is a bit more of a consolation that the product was made in country of origin. Just look at nearly all second hand B&O (applies to Denmark MM) adds on your local gumtree/Craigslist etc and nearly all of them make a big deal about "Made In Denmark". Why state this

    If operating costs are higher in Denmark, then that just means there is less meat on the bone for profit. This is were dignity, respect and greed clash and where stubborn little companies shine and are adored by their fans for hanging in there. And as far as newer companies coming on the market offering "the same" for less, well so what? As long as B&O are true to their roots, MM in country of origin and administer extremely high standards to all products, these newer companies can't

    [quote user="355f"] Rather worryingly on here some people believe that B&O should not be manufacturing in China- and if one believes a European brand can stand alone without outsourcing to the Far East to some extent is deluded. [/quote] Have you not read previous posts?? I think you are deluded. Are B&O paying you to write this lol (just jokes) Straight of the top of my head I know of, Campagnolo Swatch Victorinox Wusthof Woll Silit Miele Pagani Bugatti MV Augusta If I actually

    Good points TWG! I can't beleive they sold their car audio division when so many car makers are using their products. How was that a good idea? Just makes them now seem like a cheap nasty company with a high end badge slapped on the car speaker. They did have a good thing going with the car audio stuff and having their products in automobiles that a lot of their customers drove just made sense, adding to the B&O lifestyle image. Supplying audio to Audi A8's etc is one thing, but branching

    You are so correct!!! In response to the guy that commented on my explanation of the BL90, yes I know the speaker took a long time for R&D, but the domino effect of the company going downhill also took a long time. The writing was on the wall then, the engineers I'm sure knew it and I think the BL90 will never be bettered by the company. It was a Concorde moment for B&O and the last hurrah. What B&O now need, is a very rich investor who is passionate about the product, its roots and

    These are the times we live in unfortunately. Pretty funny a few months ago people talking about why doesn't B&O release a new turntable.... As I said then, it would be the last thing on their mind. Very annoying that the company is up for sale. Moving a lot of the production to China was the first step I guess. I would of thought that with clever management and their strong headphone and car audio market, they should be able to keep their heads above water. Sadly not. Maybe the engineers

    Does anyone here own a Sound Smith The Voice? Would love to hear one on a B&O turntable.
