    Ipod dock

    I had a phone call a day ago from a dealer asking if i wanted a B&O Ipod dock and speaker. It is expected to arrive mid November and cost £850. Comes in black and white.

    For that price it really has to be twice as a good as say a Zeppelin.

    A Beovision 10-40 in black and red fret on order, Beo4, Beo6, many A8's, a pair of white and yellow Form 2's, Beocom 4, 28 inch Avant RF DVD, Apple TV and a wife that loves this stuff as much as i do!

    I'm really excited about this - this could be the product that either makes or breaks the brand. I'm hoping it makes me love the brand like I really used to. I've found that them extremely vulgar in today's recession hit environment - let's hope it has the magic of B&O from the past!

    I somehow doubt that! This sentence ring more truth if you added "for me" at the end of it :)

    For less then 900 Euro you can get your old Ouverture rebuilt to this http://www.beodesign.org/ and control it like any A.tape from any room.

    That is a more cool Ipod dock.. i think.

    For exampel... Who wants i big iPod B&Ock with speakers, when you got some Beolab5 standing in your livingroom.

    A small Dock, with MasterLink/BeoNet in the back would be prefered insted. or integratet like the http://www.beodesign.org/

    The Ouverture iPod dock is a fantastic idea.  Is this real?  Has anyone here used one of these?

    I think this is a great solution.

    There is no one single solution for the iPod market, too many users to cover.

    I think the BS8 concept is good, but B&O should supplement the rest of its music systems with a simple plug-and-play dock with charging and Beo4 control.

    Hi

    Thanks for your interst in our product :-)

    We just finished a new industrial produced controler

    with a new iphone plug (only 1mm thick), 3 programmed

    micro-controler, now supports your playlists, ...

    Price of this kit is 940 Euro (simply send us your

    Re: Ipod dock

    That modification is spectacular!  It would be equally spectacular if they did the same with the Beosound 2000/Century.

    Beovision 7-55 with Beolab 7-4, 9s and 4000s

    Beovision 10-40 with Beolab 1s and 6000s

    Beosound 1, 5, 2000, and 3000

    Beotime, Beotalk, Beocoms

    Re: Ipod dock

    I think it would be possible to built it in, both in the BS2000 and BS2500, as they use the "TAPE" part of it.

    But send a request to Beodesign.org, and let us all knowBig Smile

    Re: Ipod dock

    Hi all,

    The B & O iPod docking item will be launched on 10th November in England and Europe, to which I have been invited by my local dealer.  As I understand, it will take an iPod touch, iPod phone and iPad.  I believe it to be a stand alone system. Priced between £750 and £1000.

    iPod dock

    Hi Mercats,

    Thank you for that information! You certainly know more information than me on this one - I really don't understand the secrecy of some of the dealers. I telephoned Bang & Olufsen of Chester yesterday and the Sales Manager was completely unhelpful and wouldn't even give me a month when it would be released. Today I telephoned B&O in Hull and didn't get a call back and sent 2 emails which went unanswered. TERRIBLE service from B&O dealers and they wonder why their sales are down.

    In conclusion, yes, I will be buying the BeoSound 8 however, I'll be buying it from Selfridges, London as their service throughout the whole store is perfect! If you get bad service from one place... move on!

    Re: iPod dock

    If you have the feeling of gettin bad service at your local dealer, i think you shout contact Bang and Olufsen in Denmark/struer and inform them. If they dont get feedback, they can't make it better;-)

    Re: iPod dock

    If a dealer isn't very helpful about products whose specs haven't even been released yet, I don't think complaining about it is exactly going to lead anywhere...

    Re: iPod dock

    Being honest I believe a lot of dealers were informed about this product over six weeks ago! Therefore I did expect a lot more customer service wise!

  • 10-27-2010 4:04 PM In reply to

    Re: iPod dock

    I don't doubt that... but do you really expect them to do 'customer service' against instructions from the headquarters, and risk their business from that side?

    Re: iPod dock

    In the US, the word is 10 November.  But who really knows what that means?  Not I.  Price?  Nope.  Colors?  White and Black.  I was told that nobody was held to secrecy, so maybe they don't know.  I sure don't, and I probably would.   PS.  New PR firm.   Might mean that you don't let the rumor mill run the business.  How refreshing?

    Re: iPod dock

    I ment, If the service in general was bad... Then let them know... Otherwise they can't change it...:-)

    I would want my customers to give feedback... Positive and negative.

    Of couse B'O are holding back on info about new products... A way to hold the exhitement....

    Try Google it... It's werry hard to find any info on any of the soon to be released products:

    Beosound 8

    Beo 6

    Beosound 5 Encore

    Beovision 4 84" with 3D

    Just like Apple... Remember the months before iPhone4 release;-)

    From what my dealer told me the price is going to be $999.99. Which makes me think that its going to be a pair of BeoLab 4 PC's with a ipod dock between the two. Obviously it will be in a new form factor.
