  • Re: Beovision 5 or 7-40?

    Paul W. Mk4 or new for the BV7. The MK3 had the dodgy dark screen of the Samsung 2009 era. Moxxie will explain this issue! In all, cases, you are buying VERY VERY VERY VERY OLD LCD technology and my word, LCD has improved considerably in the last two or three years. You've really got to be obsessed about a brand to buy into old LCD technology. For instance my old BV6 was incapable of showing black. On the film credits, it was a damn grey instead of black. It was incredibly noticeable even to

    I had a bv5 HD from new, still with family member.It has very good picture and sound, it has one HD input but I connected HD fury to vga to allow another.iconic design to, and the Panasonic commercial panels are built to last. i own 2 bv7-40 mk 6 led, but before that, I had a mk2, and mk3. I think the mark 2 was a better TV than the 3, granted it never had hdmi inputs or 1080p panel but I used HD fury 2 so had 2 hdmi inputs so ran sky HD and Apple TV 3 fine. Most of the TV I watched was 50/50 HD

  • Re: Beoplay on qvc shopping channel now.

    Exactly my point.The Burberry Chav check baseball hats and scarves were affordable to the masses.I stopped wearing my shirt because of it becoming to common. Burberry has done well in the discreet prorsum range and the massive Asian market True high end brands don't need to advertise as much, and if they join forces it's normally with another high end brand with similar customer base. Linn/Aston Martin/ highland park Naim/Bentley meridian/jaguar Land Rover. b&o/audi/bmw/merc lexus/levinson

With so much online shopping now, I guess you have to get your brand absolutely everywhere, especially when it's not selling too well. I buy everything on line now because I don't particularly like dealing with sales people and I like having the choice of buying say a surfing T shirt from Hawaii or a pair of swimming trunks from

    In my eyes, high end brands should stay true to their ethos, forget about cutting corners to reduce price just to appeal to the masses.Everyone goes on about the price of beolab 90s, they won't sell, nobody can afford them etc, TVs too expensive. My local linn dealer has sold and installed over 70 £50k linn klimax systems, my watch dealer has sold numerous £25k plus watches and I don't see a shortage of £100k rangerover bent sold. You would never see the truly high end companies

  • Beoplay on qvc shopping channel now.

    Just in from work, switched on TV and qvc has beoplay s8 and others for sale.I am all for getting the brand out to the masses if it helps develop models in the mainline range. I am on the fence, it feels like a sellout like Versace in h&m.When a brand is absorbed by the masses it loses its exclusivity and desirability in my eyes.Granted it's the play range but I don't see qvc,richer sounds etc good to be associated with the company. Qvc partner with Bose but that's another story.

    I still use my linn sondek lp12 to this day, and have upgraded the spec over the last few years to know klimax level, I just love the sound and have tried it as a source through beolabs and it still sound excellent, I have always said a good source Makes a big difference.

    I simply do not agree that people will have to wait many years for 4K content. the iPhone 6s is shooting in 4K, i've been using Sony AX100 cameras since 2013 for 4K, VIMEO offers 4K downloads - my favourite skate boarding film is filmed in 6K and 4K using RED cameras and will be available to buy as a 4K Download this winter. It's VERY VERY VERY misleading to us youngsters to say that 4K content availability is years away. Only old traditional methods such as Sky or the BBC may be far way

    Reply More Paul W replied on 11-23-2015 10:43 PM For me it's a double edged sword and I'll explain why... The design and thought into design of a select group for me. When I see the BV10 or 11 I fall in love, the Ouverture made the brand younger for me as a child back in 1991, the BeoSystem 5000 in 1984 was to me just amazing, the CX50 so cute, the Beolab 6000 and 8000 iconic. BUT, to me, their longevity and parts are absolutely appalling. The PLAY which can't be repaired in the long
