    Price rise in July?

    Heard this morning that there will be the regular B&O UK price rises during July, this year. No idea how much products will go up in price, but a local dealer confirmed that they'd been told that prices will increase.

    Anyone else heard about this?

    Just when you expect the new management to come back to earth with more honest prices, they do the opposite..Sad

     For me, another reason to buy only second hand B&O ..I can't afford anything anymore! My BeoLabs 4000 were launched at EUR 1,500, and now they cost more than 2,000, with poorer amplifiers and 6% distortion (yes, it's in the product guide!).

    I wonder how far they will go?No - thumbs down

    I was also told that price decreases are definitely not planned. BV8 will get DTV, but will only go up by £50 or so, which isn't too bad.

    Better news is a new 2x HDMI-based chassis for the BV7-32, BV6-32 (yes, vision), BV8-40. No idea when, but that's happening.

    Re: Price rise in July?

    So I was told. Who knows? I was also told recently there would be a BV6-40, so maybe this UK guy was getting confused!

    Maybe the UK price increase will be nominal - ie. much lower than previous years? For instance, I was told an additional £50 for the updated BV8.

    Re: Price rise in July?

    Also in Spain, form august, the prices will be rise, but not too much, f. e.:

    • BV8-26": now, 2.510 €; form august, 2.539 €, with DVB-T module
    • BL3: now, 3.200 €/pair; from august, 3.260 €.

    Scary increases for BL5 (16.820 € / 17.100 €) and BV7-32" with BL 7-4 (8.910 € / 9.134 €), breaking psicological barriers Stick out tongue

    Re: Price rise in July?

    Look at the pricelist in the Netherlands (already risen since July 1st)

    BV7-40 is up from € 10.925 to € 11.110

    What a difference in price with Spain for example for the BV7-32. In Spain € 9.134 and in the Netherlands € 8.785

    But then the BL5 is cheaper in Spain € 17.100 vs. € 17.490 in the Netherlands.

    BL3 almost the same € 3.260 vs. € 3.300

     

    Look how much prices have increased. When I bought my BL8000 in 1998 they were € 2.718 and now ten years later € 3.920

    Re: Price rise in July?

    I just picked up the German price list, there is an increase of 1 to 3% on most of the products.

    My personal "highlight" is the BV4-50 with Lab 10 and BS3 for 19.155 Euro or the BV 4-65 for 27.425 Euro... I am speachless
