  • Re: BO north american market activity

    [quote user="expoman"]If you want good support call Bang & Olufsen Boston. Only US store that has been in same location since 1988.[/quote] (Well, actually they moved a couple blocks...) Part of B&O Boston (beoboston.com) support quality comes from Atlantic Systems (atlantic-systems.com) in Hanover, Mass, which has been doing B&O repair since the 1980s too. They will do walk-in/depot service, and claim to work on vintage items. Alas, they once turned down some vintage work because

    What he (& I above) *meant* to say was, "It would be most kind of you, if you could query your service tech how his dispatches work and from whom/where. Oh, and whether all service is done by truck-roll or if there is a depot for walk-in/delivery service? Thank you." (We meant to say, "thank you.") Vaguely OT: Service for my Asko brand clothes washer (Swedish, but not anymore) was done by a third party service firm; they rep several brands which chose not to employ their own

    Just verified from out-of-area, calls to 847-590-4900 (and all -49xx numbers, for any individual you once knew there) are busy signals. (*Where* is your service issue being taken care of? Say, maybe NA distribution has "sought sanctuary" in Canada!-)

    [quote user="Sandyb"]I'm not even sure Sonos (via a Sonos sound-bar) setup can even do the sharing of any TV audio to Sonos speakers in other rooms. Maybe it can, but I'm struggling to find confirmation of this.[/quote]Yes, but it works "backwards" to the B&O way: Rather than going to the destination and "joining" it onto the playing source, instead you select your PlayBar room, choose "Group", and attach the other Sonos speakers on which you wish

  • Re: Beovision 10 55 - screen went pphutt...

    Someone on this board posted photos of the *amazing* job they did cutting down & re-fitting the surround frame to make "just" a center-channel speaker, and some other item (full-size, maybe a mirror)? But I cannot find it now. Anybody else know how to find this post?

  • Re: Good resellers within a few hudred miles of Philadelphia?

    You know there is a B&O store in Wayne, PA (on the "Main Line"), yes? Not them, but other individual Bang&Olufsen stores have a "preowned" tab on their websites, with conditions & prices listed. The guys at beoboston(.com) are very easy to deal with. I don't know about NYC. But you'd have to make a trip to pick items up because commercially shipping used B&O gear always seems to break something. Also the B&O stores are all in high-rent districts, so

  • Re: Beolab 4000/6000/8000’s compared to Sonos Play 5 (single unit)

    Original Play:5's sounded awful. Current version Play:5's sound much, much better! Then add the auto-equalization supported in Sonos's (very responsive and almost bulletproof) iOS app and you get good sound. Also bear in mind that you can do a stereo pairing of two Play:5s -- I would. Add their wireless sub if you wish. Done: You get an easy-to-use front end for all music services, incl. your home library, for USD500+500+700 total. The Sonos industrial design is not as sleek, but the

  • Re: Is buying B&O today a sound investment?

    [quote user="AdamS"]Seriously? KEF Blades over Beolab 90s? really?!![/quote]Oops, my mistake: I actually meant the KEF Muon. (I.e. Ross Lovegrove, not Eric Chan.) But I also realize Muon doesn't fit my price assertion, being USD140K per pair vs. BL90 85K. Blades did fit at 32K (plus room correction hardware). But now you mention it, I even like the simple looks of the Blade over the BL90 (André Poulheim / NOTO). Not that the BL90 isn't a "good" or "valid"

    [quote user="9 LEE"]LG for TV. Sonos for Multiroom music. B&O Loudspeakers ?[/quote](Oops, excuse the typo; he meant to say, "B&W Loudspeakers"... ;-) These other brands perform the same or better, in some cases *much* better, for somewhere between 1/4 the price (apples vs. apples, not less than 1/4) up to about 1/2 the price. But the problem with most other brands is they look like $#!+. Really, seriously clunky. And they aren't all integrated together. For example
