  • Re: Is there any new speakers in the horizon

    [quote user="moxxey"]As finances at B&O must be awfully tight dealing with reduced sales from covid-19, their focus is almost certainly going to be on what sells in big numbers[/quote] Yes, it is expensive to develop different loudspeaker for different use-cases like B&O is doing it, and only big numbers will help to handle the overhead costs. For B&O to reach big number it would help to be more flexibel and to use software to do it. In my opinion B&O should develop Netlink

  • Re: New B&O floor stand for Stage

    [quote user="Curly"]Seeing this makes me wish we could use the Stage as a center channel in a surround setup. [/quote] [quote user="Sandyb"]But that would be a more expensive product.[/quote] I do not think that it would be more expensive. Sonos or Bluesound for example were able to develop and selling soundbars offering the possibility to add additional loudspeakers for a surround set-up for a decent price. In my eyes it is a question of software not hardware! Certainly you need

  • Re: B&O alternative for Sonos 5.1. Surround Set?

    [quote user="Mikipidia"]Because the stage is not a center channel speaker and it also has to do with latency[/quote] Sonos is managing it perfectly with the ARC and additional sub and rear-speakers without latency. From my viewpoint it is a technology and price topic. The B&O WISA loudspeakers are too expense (different price category) for the target customers / market to accompany the Beosound Stage. So it makes no sense to integrate WISA into the Stage - WISA is for customers who

  • Re: B&O alternative for Sonos 5.1. Surround Set?

    [quote user="steve1977"]It would require a fundamentally new audio engine that allows to funnel individual channels to other speakers.[/quote] Roon RAAT (Roon Advanced Audio Transport) is able to handle multichannel streaming. In case B&O would decide to go on Roon RAAT at least they had a streaming protocol that is able to handle it. No need to wait for airplay / Apple. But I doubt that B&O is interested to move from the red to the blue ocean (see W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne

  • Re: Roon Labs – Who is using it and how?

    [quote user="Millemissen"]Seems that you are not quite up to date....B&O did not ditch NL.[/quote] ... we will see, but you forgot to add, that for multi-channel streaming B&O is using WISA. So no need to change anything. But unfortunately B&O is not following WISA consequently - or did B&O ditch WISA, too? At least B&O forgot to consider a WISA transmitter in the Beosound Stage and in the Beosound Core. As well as a WISA receiver at least in the Beolab Shape. But probably

  • Re: Roon Labs – Who is using it and how?

    [quote user="Millemissen"] What are you missing and what would be the advantages of a build-in RAAT support over the Airplay/Cast as endpoint? [/quote] In my eyes the biggest advantage for B&O would be, that RAAT can handle multi-channel streaming (see https://kb.roonlabs.com/Multichannel ). For example based on RAAT protocol B&O could develop a soundbar that could stream in sync to additional WLAN loudspeakers to enable a surround set-up similar as Sonos is offering with its soundbare

  • Re: Should the Moment have gone with Roon and Tidal?

    I do not know what threat to use. Roon labs support by B&O would be really great in my eyes. A) On one hand I do not know, if it makes sense for B&O. Due to the possibility that license fees have to be paid to Roon Labs and how complicated (= development costs) it is to integrate RAAT (= Streaming protocol of Roon) besides Airplay and Chromecast into the B&O devices. B) On the other hand brands like Bowers&Wilkins or BlueSound are offering Roon additionally to Airplay. Would be interesting

  • Re: Bang & Olufsen app 2.7

    I expect, that when you invest nearly 4,000.00 Euro in two Beosound 2 that you get more than just a loudspeaker with a nice shaped metal case. [quote user="Fansastic"]If you dislike the app so much, use the Beoremote 1 or the deezer app instead.[/quote] Certainly there are many work arounds to minimise the usage of the B&O app. Besides using the Deezer app and streaming via Airplay, I can use my ancient LMS (Logitech Media Server) offering a more thought through user concept than the

  • Re: Bang & Olufsen app 2.7

    [quote user="Carolpa"]which speakers are you controlling with the app?[/quote] I bought two Beosound 2. I like the really special design of these loudspeaker compared to the competition. The easy and straight design, no frills following the Bauhaus design concept. And the love of the designer to details like the LED at the top of the lens, integrated volume control wheel on the top and the touch control or „touch to join“, very simple and user orientated. The total opposite
