  • Re: Best of CES 2013

    [quote user="moxxey"] Getting those speakers in a wall is going to be a major effort. Most stud partition walls are not that deep, so I wonder if they can accommodate the speakers? It might be easier to build the wall around the speakers! [/quote] Quite right Moxxey, and for that reason the number of sales will be low. On the face of it these new speakers seem to share some components with the BeoVox2. The sales of which have totally collapsed. Shame because I'm sure they'll sound

    As a manufacturer what do you do if sales of your core audio and video products (and by definition, current loudspeaker sales) are declining? Bring out another set of loudspeakers! introducing another set of loudspeakers at this point is madness, utter madness! B&O are you listening? We need a new coordinated multi room music system NOW!

  • Re: What's the WORST product in the B&O line-up

    [quote user="beoinbuff"] Beosound 5 A digital music player that was 5 years past its prime when it first came out. It's supposed to free your music collection but instead needs to be attached to an ugly box and remain in one place in the room. Way overpriced as well [/quote] Also has the most awkward GUI ever invented! We have more customer complaints re this model than all of the rest of the range combined!

  • Re: Devialet vs Bang & Olufsen

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"]I must admit, après CES I'm a bit impatient about some new high end B&O products. I think a revised media player in the Beosound range would be current and market leading. A music and video player, which also includes a marketplace of not only the finest digital music(lossless), but BluRay quality films with their matching sound quality all under one roof. Obviously enough terabytes to sink a ship for future 4K films. Maybe a detachable and upgradable

  • Re: Beo's Future ?

    [quote user="Raeuber"] I hope they will stop also producing BS5/BM5 also and introduce a new audio product, but I doubt. I can't believe they will survive with only some loudspeakers. [/quote] If they do not produce a new audio system soon I fear B&O as a retailer will cease to exist in their current form. They will be relying as you say on sales of loudspeakers and a few stand alone BeoPlay products. They will be the Danish version of B&W.

  • Re: Beo's Future ?

    [quote user="jldmelb"] I wrote this in another thread, but I think it is also apt here: The big problem I see is not the loss of the Beosound 4, but the fact that B&O is becoming less and less a complete audio/visual solution for everyone. B&O seem to be going through a period of being lost in what they do. They're bringing out products that suit different needs, but not looking at the complete picture like they used to... [/quote] Got it in one!

  • Re: Beo's Future ?

    One of the reasons B&O are struggling is that their user interfaces are so dated and hard to use. B&O used to woo and beguile its customers with interaction such as sliding doors and moving TV stands. Customers today want smooth interfaces and seamless integration. B&O are awkward at both and it shows. Also it is a bit embarrassing selling a 'smart' TV (bvis11) when there seems to have been no apps for it released since launch nearly 5 months ago! The BVis 11 great sound/picture

    [quote user="olvisab"] Well, it is a pity that you don't spend much time to answer me; it seems that your imagination is at its best when you criticize b&o or others. see you later ... I began my collection 4 years ago with a beomaster 5500...now I can't stop it. beosound 9000 mk3 , beocenter 2 , beosystème 4500 , beolab 3 , beolab 7.4 , beolab 5000 , beolab 6000 , beovision 7.40 mk2 , beovision 5 , beovision av 9000 [/quote] Very sorry I completely failed to follow your points

  • Re: Beoplay V1 and headphones?

    [quote user="DoubleU"] I guess setup a new speaker group and dedicate this to a free RJ45 power link socket. (see technical sound guide) Then make a custom adapter-cable from RJ45 to a female minijack where you can connect your headphone. Volume can be controlled with your beo4. Something like that? [/quote] Looking good! :)

  • A ray of light in the middle of all this gloom

    My son (aged 14) has been getting into vinyl big time. Has saved all his pocket money to buy LPs and a rather ordinary turntable. Well today one my customers, thank you Mr B, gave me his old BeoGram RX2 to give to my son. We set it up tonight and let me tell you fellow BeoWorlders, you have never seen such big grins as on father and sons face as the music came to life! Beautiful styling, elegant operation, sublime sound. B&O when you do it right, YOU DO IT RIGHT :)
