  • Re: Beoremote Halo, the future B&O remote control

    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

  • Re: What is B&O radio?

    I dont quite know what is going on with Tunein. Outside of the well publicised BBC radio issues (for UK listeners), there may be other things going on. A whole bunch of US (and some European) stations that were in my TuneIn favourites, and listenable, and now deemed geographically restricted. Whether this is Tunein vs Tunein Premium issue, I dont know. But it does seem, at least from what I can see, tI hat TuneIn has gone from a pretty universal catch all service, to something a bit different. And

    I think his point was that B&O Radio is on the new products, not Tunein. Tunein remains on the older products. Cant remember which one the Halo can control. [quote user="Severed_Hand_of_Skywalker"] Wait TuneIn isn't supported anymore? it seems to work on my A9 rev 2 [/quote]

    Indeed - its form over function. As even my dealer said, albeit flippantly, he's still looking for uses / a compelling case for the Halo. it does look like they'll flesh it out with more features though, albeit at their usual glacial pace. But for non Deezer users, zero interest. [quote user="seethroughyou"][quote user="Severed_Hand_of_Skywalker"] Ok I am considering buying a Halo but one thing is holding me back.. the battery life. Can anyone explain to my why the battery

  • Re: 5.1 Surround music remix: what is best BeoLab 5 / 18 / BV11 configuration?

    Obviously experiment to see what starts to sound pleasing to you, music wise. It may be the case that you are in the camp of just preferring stereo for music. I cant bear music upmixed to 5.1. It can be ok for back ground listening I guess, but personally for anything other than background listening, the true image upmixing doesn't do it for me. Obviously if you have music source encoded in 5.1, then the true image engine will do a fine job. But anyway, experiment away, but it may be the case

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    Well said - the same suggestion was mentioned on the podcast on Sunday, and like you I dont believe it was correct. Amazing how many chose to believe what they want to believe, all the more surprising when everyone has the power to google and find out what has actually happened.

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    Why? If someone employs evidence that proves to be wrong, there are those who may chose to ignore it, and those that dont. Me, I'd prefer if people (myself included) when using evidence to support a point made sure that the evidence actually was right, or what they thought it to be. [quote user="Carolpa"] First I do not know anything about Sonos, their upgrades and devices getting useless. Sorry, but to me the comment can be as fake news as TWG's. For example the remarks about B&o

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    As someone who marched and campaigned against that war, you're preaching to the converted. My point remains - if someone is going to posit something as evidence, and evidence that proved to be wrong, dont be surprised if others highlight the flaw. I wouldn't have used the term fake news myself. Its a term i hate, so generalised has its use become, that people just throw it around as a response to anything they dont agree with.

  • Re: Further BeoWorld / Bang & Olufsen Collaboration - Please Read...

    Just done the survey myself - though I didn't see it as focussed on outdoor listening, unless I am missing something To me this was more about communal listening / listening for entertaining with guests - and what people are using for this. The question about who controls the experience hints towards thinking about the control paradigms (with there being no communal jukebox etc) Anyway, yes a slightly odd series of questions - not as direct as the previous "how do you use Network Link"

  • Re: Mozart vs. Network Link Platform

    No doubt their communication is poor and very unclear. It must come from a lack of internal clarity about the forward path of platform development. When the Mozart speakers started being released, why not make a proper announcement with a roadmap for future features, both those certain and those where customers would be consulted on (i.e potential). When the Balance was released, even my dealer was not perfectly informed about the absence of NL. All that being said, I would look at the track record
