  • Re: Will HomePod 'kill' BeoPlay?

    [quote user="elephant"]I have not done any B&O speaker shootout yet - I’ll save that for the weekend. [/quote] Will be interesting to hear how the audio quality compares, as I've only read positive feedback on the audio performance, but still have no idea how this compares to, say, a BeoSound, BeoSound 2 etc. For a shade over £300, if the quality is decent, sadly I'd consider one. My A6 is very flaky even with a fixed IP. Sound quality is very mid-range and I'm

    [quote user="NickPG"] The aesthetic, sound and build quality of the HomePod will never match the A6, A9, BeoSound 1 and 2. [/quote] Well see. I own the A9 (best speaker I've owned), the A6 (mediocre compared to the A9) and BeoSound 1 (sold it!), I wasn't overly impressed with the latter two. The BeoSound 2 is another step up though, but it's £1500. A lot of people will buy the HomePod simply as it's from Apple. People are like sheep in this respect, sadly.

  • Re: Beoplay E8 transparency weak on right bud

    [quote user="madlan"] Well this is interesting - returned them to John Lewis and ordered direct, same issue! [/quote] Uh? I don’t see how that’s interesting. They are all from the same factory, sealed and delivered. How are you expecting the hardware to differ from John Lewis?

  • Re: Time for a new Beosystem?

    [quote user="frog"] @moxxy. I'm chuckling at your absolute certainty in your comments. Do you have access to B&O's product management department which we don't know about? [/quote] I am 100% certain - I can assure you, there is no new BeoSystem coming out. Wishful thinking from a few hardcore enthusiasts. B&O has no intention of producing a separate system to drive screens (or similar) in 2018. But, hey, this is a forum. So wish away.

  • Re: Time for a new Beosystem?

    [quote user="Sandyb"] If they make a "BS5"... [/quote] No way is a BS5 happening. For three solid reasons: Firstly, there's absolutely no requirement for it whatsoever. B&O has already stated their partnership with LG is due to LG being able to produce a screen that's more cost-effective than B&O developing from scratch. I don't mean a panel, I mean the picture processing and elements required to power the TV. Secondly, B&O doesn't have a video processing

  • Re: Beovision 14 Now Discontinued

    [quote user="CJM1"] Now I'm in the mind of better PQ [/quote] This 'better PQ' talk in 2017 really saddens me. It's marginal these days. It's nothing like the huge advances you saw quite a few years ago. Even the jump between the BV7-40 MKIII and MKIV was huge, within the space of 12 months. As 9Lee rightly says, even an 'old' BV12-65 has a great picture and can rival the latest panels in terms of depth of colour and smooth picture. Watch a Blu-ray on the BV12

  • Re: Beovision 14 Now Discontinued

    [quote user="CJM1"] Has anyone known about the 14-55 being discontinued and does anyone have any info on a replacement coming? [/quote] When I was at a major dealer last week, I asked about the BV14. They said they expected a replacement, but not until later in 2018. Nothing imminent for sure. All about the Eclipse for the foreseeable. Most dealers know what’s coming in the next 6 months or so.

  • Re: BEOVISION ECLIPSE

    [quote user="villarsch"] Does anyone know the official situation regarding the introduction of upgraded LG panels on the Eclipse? Villarsch [/quote] I'm not sure there is an official opinion. Some dealers have speculated you'll be able to drop in a new panel at a later date. However, two issues I have here. And they are big. I have zero issues with my BV12-65. Superb with movies, excellent with sport. Clear, smooth, no transitional motion issues, nothing. Are we really saying in

  • Re: BEOVISION ECLIPSE

    Saw the Eclipse for the first time, in person, today. I'll admit the design, style and sound performance is fantastic. But, I think it looks too bright and sharp. Do I need to see every indentation on a person's face to enhance my visual experience? Having watched my smooth and deep-colour BV12-65 for the last two years, I think I prefer the colours, contrast and smoother picture from the plasma panel.
