  • Re: No more dedicated USA technical support!

    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: 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

    [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="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

  • Re: BEOVISION ECLIPSE

    [quote user="BeoET"] Just learned today that the Eclipse will not (!) be able to control the BS9k, or work together with the BV5 and BL8k in a multiroom setup. It looks like B&O have got similar requests from existing customers, but with the current SW setup it will not work. Hopefully B&O will upgrade the Eclipse sw to enable such a setup. So that means that we either have to wait (until a sw update) or upgrade the BV5 to a pre-owned Beovision (11, 12, 14 or Avant) or buy a new

  • Re: North America: would you buy B&O again?

    [quote user="MediaBobNY"] 'Found out the Houston, TX store just closed. And no, the closure is not related to 'that'. [/quote] Closing the Houston store during that situation is really dumb. How are people going to replace their equipment due to the water damage? This is the worst PR a company could have.

  • Re: North America: would you buy B&O again?

    Stan, When I lived in the Bay area in the 90s, my favorite store was the Palo Alto store. On the weekends they were always had a lot of customers. I have four complete systems and 5 turntables. I guess I am set for the time being. However I am moving into a new condo which is going to have 1 GB internet service and a security system based on HomeKit. I would like to have a new system and keep some of the older equipment. It would be nice to get a Beovision Eclipse and Beolab 50s. That's over

  • Re: North America: would you buy B&O again?

    I have been buying Bang & Olufsen products for over 30 years. The Beosound 5 which I purchased on the day it was first available is the purchase that caused me to start doubting B&O. Needless to say I have not quite trusted B&O after that. However I did buy a pair of Beolab 9s which I do like. I am going to keep what I have and wait to see what happens. To me B&O seems to be fading at least in North America.

    [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

  • 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.
