  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    That’s of course the logic of a strong, powerful brand which can ask the price it wants and people will buy it anyway. But is that happening? Are enough people buying Beolab 90, 50 and 77 inch horizons at these insanely high prices? Surely there always will be somebody who will buy at a steep price. But is that number of sales sufficient to obtain a critical mass and create durable sales growth? This seems not to be the case looking at recent growth numbers, growth perspectives and stock price. Let

  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    There is absolutely no logic in asking a disproportionate high price for such a product. It will have no success then. Although I am very interested in such a product I would never buy it for a price higher than 3000 euro. There are limits to the amount people will pay for a center speaker with some smart technology behind it. The reasoning is wrong here: the Wisa center should be cheap in order to attract customers which will then be willing to buy the other B&O speakers of the home theater

  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    I experience the same lack of time to listen to my Beolab 5s since I have become a father in 2014. To be honest I listen more to my homepods spread around in the house than to my BL5 in the lounge. And to my headphone while commuting (on trains and in the car). Do I totally agree with this comment! However, since recently I do listen again to my pentas since I moved those at the sea .

  • Re: Beolab Penta Mk1 Mk2 Mk3. Why do you love them so much? Please share...

    The last 3 years I have not used my pentas and only listened to Beolab 5s and homepods. Then 3 months ago I have installed again my pentas in the hope they were still ok. I was truly surprised how good they are. That good that I currently question myself on the investment made in the Beolab 5s...

  • Re: If you could ask B&O to make one product just for you....

    I agree with that wish list. I wish also new Beolab 5 which are Wisa compatible and 192 khz. Then I could update my set

  • BeoSystem 5

    I don’t see it that way. The Wisa technology is very appealing because it is completely wireless and stable. Most clients of B&O still have wired speakers. I consider myself an example in point. Why would I stay with my currently aging Beolab 5 speakers. These are outstanding speakers but perhaps my needs have evolved making me to want to switch to a new system? For instance a Wisa based surround sound system of B&O. Yes they have already some beautiful speakers but not a complete system

  • Re: BeoSystem 5

    Well if B&O doesn’t deliver what its clients are asking for they will not survive. If the added value of a Beovision is the exceptional design of the TV I am sorry but then they are lost too. I am not impressed by a Harmony or an Eclipse. A TV which really impresses me is the wallpaper Oled. Designwise it is very difficult to do better than that IMHO. Design villas and apartments deserve wall-mounted TVs. But do you have to pay double or triple the price? Most new large screen TVs of brands such

  • Re: BeoSystem 5

    Sorry for my late reply. Yes I am willing to pay the B&O price for a B&O Wisa center speaker and a Beosystem 5. That’s because I know that the products will be of a high quality and will last for a long time. Unfortunately the lifespan of a TV is rather short these days. Not only because of screen evolution but also because of new technology for which a TV can offer a platform (e.g. IoT). The days that a TV can be used 15 years and more are long gone. That’s why in my view it makes no sense

  • BeoSystem 5

    I can’t agree more with what you stated here. I really like the sound of my different Beolabs but connecting these to third party gear has always been a problem. Yes I still have a Beocenter 2 somewhere in the basement but that’s in the meanwhile useless. Now that the Beovisions have become plainly unattractive to me and a proper AV Receiver is still missing I have started to look towards different brands. First the idea was to try to find a proper 3rd party AV receiver to integrate with my beolabs

  • New products in the store, Harmony and Stage

    The reason is simple. The large screen Beovision is too expensive, certainly if you compare it with a 77C9 which currently sells at 5000 euro. The Beovision offers a sound system, etc. but still... TV technology evolves very fast these days. So if you want go with another screen (as many will do I guess) and build a B&O surround sound system around it, you need a proper center speaker and a surround processor. Yes, a lot of people have invested considerable amounts in B&O speakers. These
