    How many CD's/LP's are there with the name B&O on it?

    I have started collecting CD's and LP's with the name B&O on it. I wonder how many B&O has put on the market for give aways or for sale. There are some very beautifull boxes and BS9000 CD's which are offered on Ebay some even with aluminium covers.

    Same thing for other giveaways...

    B&O item 1, B&O item 2, B&O item 3,...................B&O item 735

    Beovirus? What's that?

    Re: How many CD's/LP's are there with the name B&O on it?

    I have been trying to collect those B&O demo CD's. The one with the aluminium cover is the Vol. XIII ("The Sound Of Perfection") of the Active Listening -series so at least eight of those. The cover is SO cool!

    I have also the Vol. II (and perhaps one or two more, can't find them right now) in which the cd itself has a typo, it reads "Active Listning", any extra-valuable-super-rare-collector's-item?! Stick out tongue

    I have seen only very few Active Listening cd's in eBay. At least one of my Active Listening cds I got (for free) from my B&O store when I asked if there was any new ones so it might be a good idea to try asking.

    I have in my collection also the Stereo Demonstration Record (1958-1960, as seen here) and a two-LP set called "From the Bang & Olufsen Collection 1980/1981".

    Hi Ville,

    Is your last item a Dutch record?

    Have a single in my collection, is that rare?  Even saw a book on Ebay US for a huge price, is that fair, I mean rare?

    There are also the "Open Mind" CD's. Also I have seen some Quad demo records too.

    Jean-Michel Jarre has made a record for B&O France... and B&O has also published some numbers of Jean-Michel Jarre... I'll scan the covers... still unpacking some boxes

    The race for quality has no finish line- so technically, it's more like a death march.

    Nice cd-holder, by the way, I've got one, too.

    I have seen that book sometimes in eBay, is it of any interest?

    Now as you posted, I do have that single Dutch record, too. Got it in a pile of other records, listened to it once but couldn't understand much of it! Embarrassed

    The "From the Bang & Olufsen Collection 1980/1981" is a double-disc set, this is the cover:

    Was that for the opening of a flagship store in Paris?

    They made lots of records and CD's.
    Demonstration, adjustment, alignment and other test-records and give-aways.
    I believe one of the earliest is the Lyttervalsen (Listeners Waltz) from 1932.

    "Og hør, lille ven, vil du lytte med mig ?
    (And listen my little friend, will you listen with me ?)

    Sig ja, så vil vi sætte bo.
    (Say yes, and we'll settle down.)

    Den dejligste radio forærer jeg dig,
    (The loveliest radio, I will give to you)

    jeg gir' dig en flot B&O
    (I will give you a nice B&O)

    Vort hjem skal den fylde med toner,
    (Our home, it will fill with notes)

    fra alle verdens stationer
    (from all stations of the world)

    Hver dag, i et kys, skal vi mødes, vi to
    (Every day, in a kiss, we'll meet us, we two)

    til en vals fra B&O
    (in a waltz from B&O)"

    (Soundclip: PerH & me).

    @Karel, I've heard that the CD looks great as well, have you got a picture?

    @Martin, my hart melts hearing the soundclip of that '32 single, great![:'(].

    @Ville, I have that (Dutch) LP also and I think another version as well.

    Regarding that book, I think it's nothing special is it? Have not read it (yet), maybe someone else has more details about that book?

    Nice to see all those non electronic B&O stuff like CD's, furniture, clothing etc.

    B&G, I believe, as in Bing & Groendahl.
    Not B&O, I'm sure.
