  • Re: What could make new costumers start buying Bang & Olufsen/B&O...

    Unique design, and quality. These were the points that I used to make my first purchase from Bang & Olufsen in 1965. If quality issues were not the reality for many products coming from China, it would not be a problem. But they are, as easily detected in the fraudulent and flimsy A-8's discovered any given day on EBAY. My neighbor in Brasil was entranced with our Beosound 1 that I took there years ago as a HTPC system speaker. " Look at the quality and workmanship: It is amazing ! "

  • Re: Do you own a Porsche ?

    Yes. Since 1965. Bang & Olufsen, Porsche, and Rimowa. All good investments, although some models are certainly better than others.

  • Re: BeoSound 4 now Obsolete

    My Beosound 4 is only used now as a HTPC sound system, and to play SD card music downloaded and added from the computer. Our Beosound 3200 has been installed to serve just the Library. Besides, I can't load or play a CD as the glass cover will no longer remain up. It will e taken to a B&O store for repairs someday. But the sound is still quite good, and accessible throughout the house.

  • Re: How to test masterlink ?

    A suggestion: 1. Examine the Masterlink cables first, especially the connector ends. You will either have a B&O store purchased cable ( fully intact, with set lengths ), or a ML custom length cable put together by someone. I have made and pulled custom cables for three properties ( 13 rooms ), and I used a fly fishing set with a magnifying glass to complete them correctly. As I recall there are 21 different wires inside each ML cable: If a few are cut, or broken, there will be scratchy or no

  • Re: Using the Ouverure CD stand for a BeoSound 4

    The store owner is right to be concerned. As a Beosound 4 owner, you know how lightweight the unit is, and thus easy to tip over. Placing the Beosound 4 atop the CD stand which can move and rotate amplifies the potential for it to fall over even more. My dear wife accomplished this with a light touch from a feather duster. That simple but well intended act cost us an additional 250 CHF to replace the cracked and broken glass cover, on a unit that was one week old. One possible solution to consider

  • Re: Deleting saved songs from Memory on a 3200.

    Correct. One can only delete one stored CD at a time from the Beosound 3200 hard drive. I was told by a B&O employee in 2004 that this was to avoid an accidental "purge" of all stored music. I have since deleted a few stored albums from our BS 3200, and it is a relatively easy process. Of course then I discovered that once I did this, I discovered I no longer had a few of the original music CD's. They may have been borrowed, broken, or misplaced. So if you delete, keep this in mind

  • Re: Share price drop?

    Guilty as charged. I was able to negotiate a 15 % discount on a new Beoport yesterday. Just doing my bit to keep the company afloat. Sorry all.

  • Re: New audio product coming soon?

    Picking up on Peter's suggestion, I called a B&O store yesterday afternoon. My Beoport fried while on vacation last June, so it was time to check and see what could be done. I asked first about a purchasing a Beoport. " A Beoport ! Wow....I haven't sold one of those in years. " I asked if they were still for sale, or at a discount. " No. That would be a special order item and price. " To clarify, I asked " So, no discount ? " Came then the reply, " No
