    Suffice to say I'll just repeat my earlier thought... why not leak a proper picture or two, instead of letting these total wastes of pixel space ruin the expectations for everyone.

    Re: Beolab 12

    Is it launched in the UK? No dealers in DK can tell me when it arrives. I agree it´s a bad pic. Hope it comes in other colours.

    These speakers look amazing in real life and we had the privilege to show them off to 30 clients last week who all commented on how good they look and they didn't even hear them, for a speaker that is only 3cm deep they have the same acoustic qualities of BeoLab 8002's. They were David Lewis's final design and I am sure they will become a legendary flat wall speaker. Please view them in real life before writing them off!!!

    Going a tad far there. No-one is writing them off :) We're simply commeting on the image. In that image, they are ugly. Unless someone provides something better, opinion will remain. When we see something better, we can revise our comments.

    No idea why someone can't provide a better image. They are out in under a month. Sad times really. What's going to happen between now and an early Jan launch? Sometimes the way B&O do business is just too odd for me.

    Re: Beolab 12

    I can only second what w5bno123 says. The picture above does not do them justice! Their sleek design and the amazing sound makes them an invaluable addition to any sound system.

    Re: Beolab 12

    I think B&O are trying to create a mystique around product launches but it just doesn't appear to be working?! I wish they would take a real leaf out of Apples book and do it properly!!! Best regards long term frustrated dealer...

    Re: Beolab 12

    Well the pics aren´t official ones, right? I´m confused that some dealers have these speakers others can´t tell when they are released. Looking forward to see them.

    ?! So this beolab marks the end of the DIN powerlink? The end of an era....

    YES and NO - all FUTURE audio and video products as well as speakers will
    have RJ 45 sockets instead of  DIN 8 for ANALOGUE PowerLink.

    Chrisreunion:

    Sometimes I don't understand B&OSad

    The speakers were marketed and developped as home-cinema speakers that would blend & integrate better than the current range of BeoLabs with the current range of BeoVisions..and what similarity do you find between BV10 and these? None!

    Im sorry ... maybe I missed something here but since when were they "marketed" as anything?  These are leaks ... and crappy ones at that!  Maybe you should wait til they're actually released before saying something about how a product that hasn't even been launched is being marketed Wink

    How was the sound quality compared to the beolab 6 & 8000?

    Re: Beolab 12

    We didn't have them wired up, we simply showed them. The only pictures I have them are mentally stored upstairs :0)

    We will review them properly for you once they arrive (in the New Year?!?).

    Alex, the (really awful) picture was put up by bang & olufsen on twitter, so not really a 'leak' as such....

    Re: Beolab 12

    Yesterday I visited my local dealer and he showed me pictures and "drawings" from a PDF. He just scrolled trough the PDF without stopping. What I saw and can say is that are really slim. Exactly as slim as the BV12. He also confirmed the price (39.000 SEK) for a pair.

    He also told be that he thought that the price for the upcoming BV12 will be around 175.000 sek incl. Speaker.

    Re: Beolab 12

    I believe the picture in this link is original. It comes from a spanish dealers website but was later removed.

    http://www.hifi4all.dk/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=46053&PN=1&TPN=172

    BeoVision 12. 175000 SEK is about 19349 euro. Information so far says 16000 euro. It includes the speaker but isn´t the speaker attached to the screen?

    Re: Beolab 12

    I think it's the real one, I just receive a newsletter from a French dealer, and the picture is the same !

    "Beovision 12 65″ 3D et des nouvelles Beolab 12, design et son d’exception"

    And on this image, its the same dancer ;-) :

    Re: Beolab 12

    I'm wondering... If you hang them upside down... is't there any loss in sound quality from the accoustic lens?

    Also.. seems like the woofer and tweeter are in front of eachother...  

    Form over function this time?

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