  • Re: No more dedicated USA technical support!

    [quote user="Millemissen"] [quote user="Tifoso48"] I really wonder what is going on with B&O in the USA. I just called tech support and ended up talking with someone in Denmark. I asked them what happened to their technical support center in Chicago and I was told it was closed down and all calls now get routed to Denmark. So now this in addition to closing flagship stores in major markets - it really makes me wonder if B&O is abandoning the USA . I really love the brand

    I can understand the frustrations of the remaining dealers. I checked Amazon for the Besound 2. Amazon not only has it but also has two day delivery.

  • Re: Purchase Experience and International Shipping with B&O Sheffield

    [quote user="folkdeejay"] Unless things have changed since my dealer days, I'm not sure they will thank you for flagging up " shipping from UK to US" of brand new boxed products. [/quote] There are only 11 dealers in the US. I don't think anybody cares what a dealer thinks because for many the dealer could be 1000 miles from one's home. Also because the price of the Beolab 50 is so much lower in the UK, the US purchaser could afford to pay the UK dealer to fly a service

    [quote user="Sal"] [quote user="linder"] As much as I would like the Beolab 50, I refuse to pay the B&O US price.[/quote] I'm curious how many potential US buyers B&O has given up on with this pricing difference... Was there a price difference between US and exUS for BL90 / BL5? If so, how much? [/quote] There is some good news maybe. At a dealer near me the price for a pair of Beolab 50 is $34590 which is about $5000 less that the announced price. The Beolab 90 is

    [quote user="jk1002"] Just to spell out the math, 27000 Euro a pair minus 20% tax concerted to USD is 14000$ difference. Thats offensive Bang&Olufsen [/quote] https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/08/09/1082588/0/en/BeoLab-50-Powerful-excellence-and-perfect-balance.html This is the press release from what appears to be Bang & Olufsen North America. If true, the price is outrageous. I figure I would have to pay close to $45000.00 USD which includes sales tax of 9%. There is

    [quote user="jk1002"] How do they get from 26k Euro, 23k£ to 40k$ giving that british and euro price include 20% tax they are really doing their best to kill the brand over here [/quote] I saw the price as $30,000 also. However it was $40,000 on the Verge. $30,000 is still a little high considering there is no VAT in the US. It also looks like there are no North American dealers that have Beolab 50. It does seem to appear that B&O is killing the brand in the US.

  • Re: BeoLab 50

    [quote user="Sal"] [quote user="SHEFFIELD"] I sold my first pair today - less than £23k but hey ho! [/quote] Now I'm really curious about the price of a pair in the US. Am I so jaded with B&O that the price point seems like a downright bargain? LOL [/quote] £23k is about $30k USD. I have never seen the British price lower than the US price at least by that much.

  • Re: The new darling - Loewe

    The Chinese company behind Loewe is Hisense. Hisense is in a cooperative partnership with Loewe. Essentially Hisense provides technology and software to Loewe. Loewe TVs are assembled in Germany using many components from Hisense. Hisense markets Loewe products in China. Hisense does sell high def TV's in North America. They are really cheap. For me I am probably going to reluctantly move on from Bang and Olufsen. There is only one dealer near me and if it does not sell B&O anymore, I would

    [quote user="jvezina"] Good evening, Even if it is out of topic in a B&O forum, does Loewe plans to return to North America? Thanks, Jean [/quote] Loewe was in the New York city area for a short time in the late 1990's.
