     Calling other peoples opinions as "numbskulls" etc is your right I guess, but it is a bit rich if you have read things out of context.

    I agree completely. However, there are those who seem to have an inability to express opinions without insulting others

    Nor stick their nose in and try and wind people up like the above, Razlaw. Like I said before, you're an interesting bloke, for a lawyer. Impartial? Nope.

    All I said was insults are not appropriate. I was unaware that responding to a post, in fact agreeing with another post, was sticking ones nose  in anything.

    Maybe the Beoplay 12 is not priced high enough.  Smile  This does not look like it has super quality materials or design but they are asking $30,000 for it?

    I saw it this afternooen. From my point of view it looks and sounds great. No bad finish at all! Design is very Cecilie Manz. The same gently curved edges, simplicity and texture as in many of her other designs. And not retro at all. Have a look when avaible in your country and make your own judgement.

    "Not retro at all"..??? Confused Have you seen a Beolit from the 60's??? It is definitely inspired by that - B&O even admits that it is inspired by vintage Beolits. That's called retro -just like VW New Beetle, Fiat 500, etc.
    It's not a new and groundbreaking design invented by Cecilie.

    But anyway...If the B&O Play products is supposed to be inspired by vintage B&O (as someone suggested earlier in this thread) -I can't wait to see a new version of the Beosystem 10 - or other Jensen designs CoolWhistle

    Re: Beo Play

    Has anyone actually heard this yet?

    How does it sound? Compared to the BS8?

    I'm ready for something new that I actually want to buy!

    Just two thoughts ... if it is truly damp proof then I am really interested in it for our newly completed wet room

    Idea ... and I just realised we can sling it into the car and have B&O on the go ... Travel woohoooo !!!

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

    It sounds exceptionally good!  If I remember right from the Conference in September, we were all blown away by the audio and build quality.

    We will be retailing at £650...

    Re: Beo Play

    Thank you!

    If it's AirPlay only it will require a network correct?

    Does it accept a Bluetooth connection?

    Decent review in Stuff..... also Beolit 12 is a first page click through feature on the "best of CES" email that I got today - decent bit of PR for the item & the brand.

    Re: Beo Play

    well, this is not what I was expecting from the product launch...its as attractive as a car battery. I hate it. I certainly wont be adding it to my collection anytime soon.

    its a nod to the iPod generation, where sheer quantity takes priority over quality. Dont get me wrong, I love my ipod/iphone and I love that some of my music, even though its compressed,  is portable and I can listen when walking...

    but Im just not sure where this Beolit 12 fits in?? the shed? the back seat of the car?? its portable yes, but you would need pretty big pockets to carry that around when out for a walk. 

    For me, it has little aestetic appeal - though i acknowledge one's aestetic appreciation is a  personal matter. However, I do wish it well and im sure it will be appreciated by many enthusiasts - Im just not one of them!!!! When I look at my BeoSound 9000 I see art, design, beauty.....

    And tell me if I'm wrong : if no Bluetooth, what is the meaning of carrying it. Airplay needs the home wifi network, so it's useless to take it with you out of the house, unless you use a cable to plug your iDevice.

    ... and the design is not of my taste. I hope that the low cost TV will be better looking.

    :( I got carried away in my enthusiasm ... I had pondered on the issue of how they would handle people wanting to register more than 1 network ... I know more than one couple who have two homes (his and hers) and a shared beach house = at least 3 networks

    But it is a pity my car idea fell flat on its face  Sad

    You'll need wifi at home in order to stream from your Pc to the Beolit.

    But you can stream directly from your iPhone/iPad to the Beolit too.

    Re: Beo Play

    I totally agree with Paul. It's so expensive and definately not 'from the heart' purchase. I looked at the designer's portfolio of work and didn't like what I saw. There are thousands of young, creative types out there, i'm sure someone could have done a nice design. Ar well.  AND I thought PLAY was supposed to be cheap!!! This is practically as expensive as Bang&Olufsen - I dont get it!!!

    And yes sub brands - Even Dolce&Gabbana have stopped D&G to concentrate on their ONE brand which is Dolce&Gabbana which is Made in Italy in their very own factory with their own staff ensuring TOP QUALITY!!!   Their shirts and suits are the most amazing quality!!!

    Well it´s a matter of taste. Her design are very scandinavian. I like the Essay table among other things.

    Cheap? I don´t think but cheaper compared to what we are used to. Play is probably not for "BeoNerds" like many as us. One of the reasons I like the idea of Play. Play can make products that are different from the main brand.

    It´s not magic - it´s Bang & Olufsen

    Rumour has it (a store person) that the BeoLit 12 will be available in Australia in 2 weeks (bet its 3) for AU$900 versus the BeoSound 8 which is AU$1,500.

    Any confirmations m8s ?

    Re: Beo Play

    There seems to be the understanding here that you need your Wifi network in order to stream music to the BeoLit 12.

    That is only the case if you want to stream your iTunes music from your PC/Mac to the BeoLit.

    You can however wirelessly stream directly from your iPhone/iPad to the Beolit without using your home wifi..
