  • Re: Something big is coming.... ๐Ÿ™Š

    Using it as a platform to debut their new Icepower tech and getting the high end industry to take them seriously perhaps. I always thought B&O priced and targeted the audio range too low. Good aesthetic + good workmanship + good sound = sky high price.

    Yes please end that range. The Lab3s need an equivalent sized replacement. I need new computer speakers. B&O should take advantage of the low commodities prices now and buy up a whole stock of Aluminum for its core range. The plastic looks are kinda unfortunate.

  • Re: BeoLit 15 released

    [quote user="Aussie Michael"][quote user="wonderfulelectric"] Gotten 2 BeoPlay A2s one in black and one in green, they are good for portability and for the bathroom. But the cabinet resonance contributes greatly to the muffling of the sound. Not the clearest speakers. B&O should introduce portable speakers to the core Bang & Olufsen line. They fact that they are not doing it is actually a little silly. Small expensive things sell better than large expensive things. Great

  • Re: Crossovers

    The most expensive loudspeakers often have the most complicated and expensive crossovers. It's all in the crossovers! That is why active speakers make sense. The amplifiers + active crossover probably cost nearly the same a high end crossover.

    [quote user="paolomariano"][quote user="Amazone"] I don't care about Dolce & Gabana. I think I like the Beolit 15, but will not buy it due to the colors it has. Gold, pink, baby blue, it may be fashionable but certainly not for me. I cannot imagine any grown-up man buying a pink speaker? I know Apple is also selling golden iPhones and iPads but I know nobody who actually bought one. And they at least give the option to buy regular white or grey. Maybe normal colors like

    Seems like the new version has shaken off B&O's signature crisp sound a little and a lot meatier in the bass. No passive radiators are not suppose to make bass boomy. It's in the voicing. I guess B&O had deliberately voiced speakers that way. The thing is the cabinet is too flimsy for such low bass voicing so and it's the cabinet that is blurring the sound. But who cares at this price? Beoplay competes favorably to Bose. B&O has such an untapped potential in its branding strategy

  • Re: Beolab 9 compared to Beolab 20

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"][quote user="butch1"] Jeff,over the years I have demoed many CD players,and transports and dacs,in a home setting.I am not interested in reviews and lab tests,my ears are my judge. I still think to this day that the linn cd12 was the best sounding CD player I have heard,but was surpassed by my linn klimax ds,so it shows how technology has involved.I follow the linn path of source first,but that's me.I bought my 9000 as its a piece of art along

    [quote user="Jeff"] [quote user="butch1"] I am not talking about television speakers and I will stand by my statement,the lab 20s and 5s are the only ones on the list capable of competing with meridian. [/quote] Let me say, I've not heard the new B&O yet, and haven't heard meridian in a while, but I can believe that you're right. When you get to the B&O products below the 9/20 and 5, there are more compromises made to function to conform to form, although I

  • Re: Beolab 9 compared to Beolab 20

    [quote user="Geoff Martin"] [quote user="Michael"]But there is not only Hz to think about but also dB. It might play 19.5 Hz but not at volumes as high as the BeoLab 5 can, at least that is what I would believe.[/quote] This is correct. If you ignore sound pressure level, a 1" tweeter can be EQ'ed to have a wider frequency range than a BeoLab 5. However, it would only be able to have that response at a VERY low sound pressure level. As soon as you start turning up the
