    Beolit 12

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

    The concept sounds great! In fact, I can't wait for it! However I sincerely hope that mock up on the link above is not the finished product... It doesn't look very B&O at all...

    I think it's the real deal, since the picture is taken from the FCC site (which have more pictures and the user manual)... Not quite sure what I think of it...

    It looks a little like an electric shaver! Great concept, can't wait to see it in the flesh

    It is. And you can see photos on this public PDF: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=1580411

    I've seen a better picture which was sent around the the dealers and it's ok. Nothing amazing. Aimed at a different audience from what I'd normally purchase.

    Re: Beolit 12

    Thanks for the link. Interesting, but to be honest, disappointing for me. It's neither "retro" (ie a nod to the original Beolits) nor stylish enough. And it looks plasticky.

    The dimensions don't sit comfortably with me either, it is too fat. Also, the tray thing on the top is far too fussy!

    Enough of the negatives anyway - I'll give it the benefit of the doubt though until I have seen it in the flesh. Just my initial impressions that's all.

    Re: Beolit 12

    Don't expect to much from Beolit12 ,I think it will be for the BeoPlay Subbrand.

    Re: Beolit 12

    I disagree - They need to be great value highly desireable products which are fun to use, innovative and lovely to look at for the "play" concept to work.

    That one so far doesn't have a great deal to offer me.

    Re: Beolit 12

    With you Llew on this one, B&O used to be about innovation, about colours, design - not at all impressed but we'll see.

    I found an interesting picture at page 1 of this document

    Re: Beolit 12

    We now have three different people posting three links to the FCC site, and only the first one (by mhw) works for others, since the site needs the session info of the search. Use that, or just do an FCC ID search on the site yourself (grantee code: BV5, product code: BEOLIT12).

    To me, it does have an obvious resemblance to the old Beolits - not the colouradios, but the earlier '60s. The linked pic in the original post somehow manages to totally ruin it (and what did they do with the handle?).

    Hope this is enough linking to those documents, let's wait for some new information Smile

    Hallo,

    i found this photos of the beolit 12: http://gizmologia.com/2011/11/beolit-12-altavoces-portatiles-airplay

    i followed that link and looked at the gallery of photos at the bottom and I think it has been designed by the guy who last worked on the well known B&O ELECTRIC SHAVER !!

    Laughing Laughing Laughing

    First B&O (1976) was a Beogram 1500 ... latest (2011) change has been to couple the BL11 with the BL6Ks *sounds superb*

    Re: Beolit 12

    As David lewis said : " it is not important to me that people liked my designs, as long as they were not indifferent to them "

    Anyway, like all new B&O product, a picture give us a first opinion, but we must see it "in flesh"

    Re: Beolit 12

    I still think they are not production photos. That's a demo unit sent to pass regulations.

    Why? It has unfinished parts, rough edges and so on. It's just a functioning unit sent for clearance purposes.

    There aren't even any controls on the top :)

    I hope this is not even a photo of the real thing, it looks ugly as hell!

    Re: Beolit 12

    I think I like it - its very kitsch! It reminds me of happy times when I worked in Brighton at JUICE FM there. Everything product wise was baby blue and those retro Roberts DAB radios were everywhere!!!  Happy memories :) Basketball & the gym on the beach was pretty awesome too!

    Re: Beolit 12

    If it is a demo unit, I really hope the final product will be exactly the same... :) I adore it.

    The Beosound 9000 looked like a product of the next century, the Beolit 12 of the last century!

    Agreed, but maybe that was B&O's plan for this device. Produce something that supports all the latest features (AirPlay etc), yet make it look like something from the 90s. There's a bit of an anti-cool feeling to this product.

    As I said above though, these photos are not the finished product. They are mockups presented to get CE clearance etc etc. Functional mockups.

    I wasn't a fan when I first saw the BS8. In fact, I was quite vocal about it's looks. Ok, it's not the best designed B&O product that I've owned, but it's grown on me since I saw the original photos. The Beolit 12 may do the same on release.
