  • Re: New B&O TV BeoVison Harmony

    On reflection I think that this TV is going to be regarded as a classic B&O offering. OK, some of the movement seems pointless, but it is a mobile work of art! Wasn't it the same with the Beocenter 2 and similar products? Part of the joy of ownership was that starting-up opening..... when in reality the same could have been achieved with a slot loading CD mechanism. I'm not sure about the price point, but isn’t this TV about 3 times the current cost of the LG screen on its own?

  • Re: Any one have a store they particularly like?

    1.5 hours drive. Nearby? This thread reminds me how differently distances are viewed in the US in comparison with the U.K. Sometimes when I switch iPads or computers I get a warning from the (probably US based) service provider that someone in London is trying to log on to my account etc etc. I'm 220 miles away from London, but obviously just next door in US terms. I'd recommend Nick at B&O Wilmslow. Not in the US, but hey, maybe more accessible to you than some of your alternatives!

  • Re: Is the Moment a sensible buy?

    [quote user="Roger"]...........who was baffled by the improvement in sound quality when he removed the Moment in the shop and replaced it with the Core. [/quote] This really baffles me! Why should there be any noticeable difference in sound quality from any top of the range B&O sound source (as opposed to speakers)? Graham

  • Re: What is this?

    [quote user="Sandyb"] That stand doesn't appear to be rotatable, no.... I believe that model is a 77 inch, which is what it being launched first. My UK dealer says it will be around 20 grand (GBP). [/quote] 77 inch. So difficult to appreciate the scale of the thing from the video. At that size there is perhaps less need for rotation, and sideways viewing of the latest screens is pretty good compared with the early LCDs where you had to view more or less straight on. But is it a work

  • Re: Bang & Olufsen announces preliminary financial results for the...

    [quote user="beocool"] [quote user="vikinger"] Apparently Aston Martin Lagonda shares are down 40% since their Oct 2018 launch. Does this indicate that the luxury markets have peaked and that B&O had better refocus again? Graham [/quote] Not necessarily. It's quite dangerous to look at the share price of one company and turn it into an indicator for a certain line of business or in this case the luxury market. If you look at LVMH stock price for instance it closed at €

  • Re: A big THANK YOU to Lee - with a video celebrating 10 years on Beoworld

    Great memories of the Kensington Roof Gardens event. My wife won the BS3 sat on the prize table. I thought I'd heard my name called out, only to be told by Lee to sit down again as he repeated Mrs Vikinger's name. Graham

  • Re: S45's... How good!

    I have original S45's (with the moulded resin backs). They are outstanding, and certainly out-perform my much larger Beovox 2600's. Graham

  • Re: BEOCENTER 2 will not power up

    .Upgrade to silver or gold and download the Mk2 service manual (bottom left link on the service page.... not the User manual). Part 1 lists a lot of error messages (half of which are identified as 'Not Error'!) There are other parts to the service manual... concerning dismantling and replacing parts. Hopefully another member has had your exact experience and can suggest a solution. My BC2 works OK except for sometimes switching itself back on just after being switched off using the red button
