  • Re: BV 7-55 vs BV 11-55

    The quandary is this. B&O have smartly integrated their new digital chassis into the entry-level products first. I imagine they are continuing to develop the capabilities so that they can introduce enhanced versions of the chassis with superior picture/sound processing in the higher-end products more akin to the BV7 and 9 families in the future. In my view, none of the TV manufacturers have yet cracked how to really do 'Smart' capabilities within their TV. Keep your BV7 for the next 18

  • Re: Should I replace a BV9 with a BV11 55?

    I'd suggest NO. Not that the BV11 is not a good product, its just that you'd be going from one of B&O's upper mid-range products down to their entry-level product (I exclude Play from this). The issue is that the update cycle has started from the entry-level upwards. Hold on to 2013 for the BV7/9 replacement product(s). I have a BV7 and I understand its like-for-like replacement will arrive sometime next year. Whilst you would benefit by a few months gaining their new 'smart TV'

    [quote user="PhilLondon"]Also the replacement link system had supposedly been canned by the new CEO.[/quote] Smart guy! I'm starting to like this new CEO. Finally someone stopping those engineers from developing unnecessary technologies that are legacy before they even leave the door. He is restoring my hope in the brand.

  • Re: beovision 10 40" & 46" discontinued

    [quote user="moxxey"]If Apple can produce a virtual computer in the size of the Apple TV - or even the Mac Mini motherboard - I'm sure B&O could re-work the internals of the BV10, without requiring a redesign. That's Flappo's point and I agree[/quote] No disagreement there at all. I'm sure the updated product will be in the same framework. But its much tougher for B&O. Companies like Apple and Sumsung are able to package so much better because they own the silicon

    [quote user="Flappo"] I don't see what's wrong with the BV10 as it is . Maybe upgrade the sw ? It makes anything else on the market - including the loewe wannabees look stone age. [/quote] Whilst I agree the external design still looks timeless, behind the screen - its really old! Essentially, the basis of the chassis and system are nearly 8-9 years old now. Modern TV's now feature multi-purpose operating systems - often Linux - that enable web connectivity and applications

  • Re: Beovision 6 or Beocenter 6

    You can distinguish between the two; BC6 has metal speaker frets while the BV6 has cloth. The primary difference was the Dab module. And then they simply changed the name back again. However, the big difference is the screen. A 2004 BV6-22 will be noticeable dark screened for the first 5 or so minutes as the backlight bulbs get up to temperature. Of course, the major issue is that neither has a digital receiver and they are both based on an old B&O chassis from the CRT days - but I forget which

  • Re: New BeoPlay V1-40 or used BV7-40 Mk 3?

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"] The problem is Flappo that although your system is from a financial and maybe technical outlook sensible, it poses other present and future questions. In 2-3 years time when inevitably technology moves on, and being male we all have that constant gene that drives us to have the best, your TV will be virtually worthless although not redundant. Try trading that in? You will need a controller for the Cambridge Blu Ray player, 1 for the Apple TV, another for the

    [quote user="Flappo"]I just bought a 46es8000 for my bedroom - the picture is staggering.[/quote] Congrats on your new Samsung. This years model really sees the first mature/robust implementation of LED backlit panels (with considerably less bleed or smokey screen.) If I were in the market, this is the model I'd buy. Did you buy some speakers - which ones? The BV10 will be a consideration in the near future... its due a chassis upgrade and a resetting of its price - both of which are
