    BC2 - new models

    Have heard that we can expect a new finish for the BC2 - will get both Aluminium and steel finishes. There is also to be an audio only model designed for those with a BV7 so that the DVD is not duplicated. Obviously cheaper - I seem to remember someone asking for this so they do listen! The difference is in the cable box - the head units are the same.

    Re: BC2 - new models

    Interesting news. I was just about to finally buy a BC2, but I have no need for the DVD player. I wonder what the new finish will look like?

    It would be very useful if they added the laser that allowed it to read both HD DVD and Bluray discs as well as CDs and DVDs and give it an HDMI out. I know how unlikely this is but it would be great.

    Re: BC2 - new models

    I doubt that there will be a new BC2 model available in North America soon. The BC2 MK2 is available since 26 December 2006 in Montreal, Canada. The actual design is perfect in my opinion ( black plastic  with aluminum ). I have the new BC2 MK2 and I love it. No company has attained such kind of perfection since today. My BC2 is connected with a Sony XBR LCD television. The quality of the image is absolutely stunning (my SONY DVD paid 1000$ - HDMI output - was not capable to convince me!!!- so I sold it…- in fact the BC2 connected S-Video is way better than 1080i HDMI!!!) .

    I have had a demonstration with the famous Blu-Ray and I was really disappointed.

    I think that the new design will be the same. If they will change something, I expect from B&O low quality (the BL9 is the BEST EXAMPLE OF A LOW QUALITY SPEAKER!!!!)!!!.

    all sold!

    They are not changing the design - just adding another finish. The head unit will be to all intents the same - only the switch unit changes by having less connections. The additional audio only unit will be available worldwide.

    Re: BC2 - new models

    Now that *is* interesting. I could do with an audio-only BC2. Any idea on the release of updated BC2?

    First post on the new forum. Still trying to get used to this new design.

    You are kidding? I saw the Playstation 3, with the Blu-ray Casino Royale DVD, via a BS3 and BV4-65 and the quality was out of this world - quite a few levels higher than my BV7-32 with standard Casino Royale DVD!

    Re: BC2 - new models

    yes, this is what I should have said - that a regular DVD player is of limited interest to me at this point. So if they're not going to build in the new formats (highly unlikely) they might as well leave it out and save some complexity. Maybe it'll read discs faster as well.
    As for no benefit from the new format, you do the math. 1920x1080 = 2 megapixels. Which is 6x the information compared to 720x480 of regular DVD.

    Re: BC2 - new models

    OO OO OO!! Audio only!! That does sound like a seriously fantastic option!! I just love the design but can't afford it. Do we know if the audio only option would still have the DAB option (I know it sounds like a daft question but...)

    Agreed! The picture is an unbelievable improvement over standard definition, although a BeoCenter 2 running through a BeoVision 9/BeoVision 4 also looks pretty impressive now B&O has the BS3.
    Notice the sound though? MILES ahead of anything else, it's completely uncompressed, IE CD quality on all channels.

    RE: BeoCenter 2 update

    That's good news! Will the socket box show any other differences that we know of? Maybe smaller? And please tell me it's easier to option program!

    How about a DVD-only model? Big Smile

    I only need a DVD, because of my BS9000. Was going for the BV7, but that was before BV9.

    Peter did you say ICE powered BL4000??? I think the current 4000 are the most underrated speakers in the range...

    That's how you start a good conversation with Peter Stick out tongue

    I agree though, they're better than 6000s IMO...

    Re: BC2 - new models

    I love my BC2 though I would love a software update possibility - I think the loading of DVDs are bit slow and sensitive.

    Btw: I have a PS3, top-notch Panasonic Plasma, and Casino Royal Blue-Ray movie. (No BS3 sadly) But the Picture is awesome - and no normal DVD picture I have ever seen (even the best on B&O) comes close to that!

    Oh yes. The Bath store has two BL5s connected and the sound was so impressive, a few people huddled outside the store thinking that there had been an explosion, in-store.

    I have, 6k, 8k and 4ks and the 4000 are the most impressive for their size and discreet placement possibilities, as you say, ‘better than the 6ks’ even though they share the same amps

    Re: BC2 - new models

    I also love my BC2 ... I really like the Idea to have a Music only BC2, maybe the reason for Beo could be that Beo release a new DVD2 with HDMI output. In this case, you have to much DVD Option (BV7, BC2 and DVD2). 
    I am a happy Men, I got my BeoVision 9 this Monday :-) ... now I have a Setup with BC2, HD Cable Receiver, AppleTV, Playstation 3 and Wii ... all this things together in one System and the Picture Quality...  its come from another planet ... :-) 
    But a BC2 with a Digital Audio Output could complete this System :-)

    Wasn't there a photo in the old forum showing a somewhat darker BC2, like a dark greyish similiar to that grey they were using for the BL7?

    Yes, it has DAB as standard in the UK.

    But all DVD players can play CDs! It is part of the specification!
