  • Re: Is buying B&O today a sound investment?

    Funnily enough, I like/prefer the start-up with the Bang & Olufsen logo. It's the switching off that lacks elegance to me - give me curtains for that. Otherwise, you've got to admit, the Eclipse is the best TV B&O has done for years. It just works. Not sure why everyone is saying its their last ever TV. If it is, they went out on a high.

  • Re: The LG 2019 OLED gets WiSA-based wireless Dolby Atmos audio.

    Sorry to say, I think the product above is not where B&O should invest. It's a legacy hub thats will appeal to a very narrow market for a very short period of time. Connectivity and Speakers is now a wireless game. Hubs need to drive broader home automation and experiences. B&O needs to have the same attitude as Apple, being brave to dump stereo jacks, integrated DVDs and slow USB ports. Yes, you'll get your moans from groups of people with their old stuff, but its a necessity if

  • Re: Bang & Olufsen in 2019... Your predictions?

    [quote user="9 LEE"] So... with the share price crashing, very few new products (waves of new colours, yes..) and an apparent exit from previously held markets such as Aus/NZ and USA, all combined with a general dissatisfaction of customer service - and the shift from the 'plastic' Play products becoming 'main brand' Bang & Olufsen branded items, where do you see things going from here? More store closures? The brand sliding even further into becoming just another 'Beats'

  • Re: Is buying B&O today a sound investment?

    Not sure this is relevant anymore with the current portfolio. The multi-room speaker software has been 100% for more than 3-years now and the Airplay 2 roll-out has been really good as well. And the Eclipse software on WebOS is also really solid. B&O maybe not the best software development house, but the days are now gone with AndroidOS, some of the BeoSystem 4 and worse the BeoSystem 3 issues of yesteryear. I'm sorry for those on the AvantNG and Horizon - you rightly have plenty to be upset

  • Re: beovision Eclipse and LG OLED panel

    Now that I've had enough time with my Eclipse - having moved from the Mk1 Avant 55 - unless you have some hardware skills and some serious software skills, it would be pretty darned impossible to link a generic C7-55 to the rest of the Eclipse hardware. In fact, unless you were from B&O with some knowledge of what was engineered, I'd suggest its almost economically impossible. Despite what I read on these boards who suggest its simply a repackaged LG on a soundbar, I can attest from what

  • Re: BV11 and Apple TV issues. Can someone please give me some advice

    Get the Apple TV 4K. It'll automatically adapt to the TV. Obviously you won't get 4k, but you'll get outstanding performance in other respects; whether managing upscaling or sound. You're getting a processor and graphics controller delivering 400% better performance than the 4th gen for an extra £30 - why wouldn't you. No brainer.

  • Re: Avant 55 TV speakers stuck down

    Have you checked the rear silver panels are not fouling. Sometimes they drop a little.

  • Re: Beovision Avant and the new 4K Apple TV

    Hi - obviously it will work, but without the luminance benefits of HDR decoding. No big deal. I'd wait 12 more months if your even thinking about a new TV for these new standards to settle down as there are others around that have a potentially even more beneficial impact on picture quality. I like the look of Dolby. The bigger issue, if you have a setup like mine is whether you already have another HDMI 2/HDCP 2.2 product connected like a Sky Q Box, in which case we both have a problem. I'm

  • Re: AirPlay 2

    [quote user="Michael"] You can continue using your stuff as you do today. I am curious about the HomePod, and it is very agressively priced. Very interesting with competition in the field. [/quote] Unlikely. What is likely is that they are only getting full specs this week at wwdc. Sharing earlier will have been to high a risk with HomePod. Sounds like they have a solid marketing agreement though. Although I'd say B&o has little or no choice but to play along.

  • Re: AirPlay 2

    [quote user="moxxey"] Of course it will - AirPlay 2 requires the hardware to support the software. You can't reengineer new standards back in to old hardware. But, you can't blame B&O. How can you? It's an Apple standard and it's them that moved the goalposts. Besides, your BS2 isn't suddenly unusable, any different. Just means it won't support some of the AirPlay 2 functionality. In exactly the same way that my iPad Air 2 won't support some of the forthcoming
