    New BeoSound or BeoCenter for 2012 ?

     

    Somebody know if Bang & Olufsen will launch a new Audio or Audio/Video system

    during the coming year ? Thank you for your answer and Happy New Year either !

    Since they already launched a new pair of wall speakers, lets hope they re-launch this -

    Talked to my dealer but he did not know anything about new Audiosystem in 2012. Just about a entry level TV that should come in later springtime. Might be under Beoplay and standalone (for the moment)...

    BeoVision 8-40 / BeoVision 8-32 / Beovision 6-26 / BeoSound 3200 / BeoSound 1 / BeoLab 3 /  Beolab 6000 / Beolab 2000 / Beoport / Beomedia 1 / 3* Beo4 /BeoCom 5 with VOIP

    I agree and I guess i am lucky to remember these at the time! I remember totally falling in love with the 2500 system in about 1991!!!  It was totally unique!... and it still is!

    I guess it's super hard to get excited by BeoLit 12 blocks when we had these beauties over 20 years ago - bit sad really that the world is evolving but Hifi isnt as exciting as it was in the 80s and 90s :'(

    Paul it's the Beosystem 4500 from around 1990, 91, 92 i believe. 

    In the movie "National Lamppons Christmas Vacation", the yuppys BM4500 explodes - but that's another story!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Absolutely right Evan. The most beautiful speakers I've ever seen and with  a very decent sound.

    Re: New BeoSound or BeoCenter for 2012 ?

    I'm definitely hooked for life on these babies. The only difference between my setup and the one in the picture, is the speaker - I have a pair of BeoLab 5000s!!!!! Cool

    Yes BeoBoy, they are king. 

    Tomaz, if you think these look fresh, have a look at a White BeoSystem 4500!

    Tod, they started producing them in 1988, I only know because mine were made that year Smile

    Hi Paul, no problem, we will educate you! As Tod already mentioned, that is a BeoSystem 4500, consisting of BeoMaster, BeoCord, BeoGram, BeoGram CD and BeoLab 3000/4500/5000. A brilliant system all around. Here is a link to the famous movie clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oyUhRQr7_8

    I want to share something I designed in 2007 for Microsoft Next Gen. Design Competition , it lasted as Top 10 finalist designs, but someone in the microsoft jury mentioned , that it looked to much Bang Olufsen :) , do you like it ? It was conceived to be made of white aluminum .Not possible to made now..

    Your project look like the compact system I would like to buy. Simply Excellent !

    Why is not possible to build ? Did you propose it to Bang & Olufsen. Maybe you

    will be lucky to win this time. Congratulations ! Smile

    lovely design Tomaz!!! - clean n simple...I guess the put-down by Microsoft judge should reallybe taken as ultimate compliment. After all, what have microsoft ever designed that was beautiful? useful yes, beautiful?? Absolutely not.

    Can you really imagine that Microsoft could ever have made anything using white alloy? What would they then do with their plastic junk mountain?????

    Re: New BeoSound or BeoCenter for 2012 ?

    Thanks !

     

    By looking it at today , I would probably remove the CD-drive section and replace it with a big navigation wheel :) but on the other hand why not keeping it ... with the BS5 you have to buy it extra to rip CD content comfortably ...the big screen disappears behind a white door, actually the same principle you know from the Beocenter 9500. 

    An all white system without a visible black screen...With, not possible to made ,I was reffering to white coloured aluminum, this alloy is not possible to produce.

    which would look like this , hey thats looking damn good ..I did a good job back in 2007 :)) I hate plastic :D

    I'm usually not a fan of the designs posted from time to time, but I like the unit you've designed, Tomaz. You're right that there's probably no need for as much hardware in the middle these days, but the screen is a nice touch. A worthy evolution of B&O design DNA.

    Your project is really nice ! 

    We need the CD, hard-disk, Internet Radio. Concerning speakers,

    can you try to design without black clothing but with an integrated

    alu cover with small wholes for sound like see in the new Beolab 12.

    Please contact Bang & Olufsen for your proposition. You have chance

    the Master David Lewis let you the free entry... Come on! Let's go !

    Cross fingers for you and for our future BeoSystem 12 ! I will buy it !

     

    P.S: if you need encouragement or petitions I will support Smile

    While I think CD is done, weren't there some rumblings about an update to Beosound 9000? Maybe they add a mp3 and net radio component to it.

     

    I would not expect much else, this is the year of Beoplay

    Re: New BeoSound or BeoCenter for 2012 ?

    @Beoboy I appreciate your support ,but the world is little bit more complicated Smile so don't expect this design concept from B&o, anyway it was conceived for Microsoft working with embedded Windows No - thumbs down , and youre the only one who wants to buy it Big Smile But if I have time I will make a new one with subtle changes and in polished aluminum and with aluminum loudspeaker grill and post it in this thread..

    Hi Tomaz,

     

    Thanks for your reply !

    Not sure that I will be only one to buy it ! Wink

    Please look at KEF with the alu Speaker Muron.

    Maybe another brand will be interested by your

    project. Awaiting your next draw with alucover !

     

    Kind regards.

    No sooner said than done, I recompiled it with new materials and removed the CD-section. The left door opens and goes under the right part and reveals the screen and control. Lets call it Beocenter 12 Whistle or Microsoft Mutimedia Ultra Entertainment System 1 + Bing search Engine Smile everyone is free to comment on this concept ...

    I like the high contrast design with black and white more... and I think I read somewhere (was it in the financial report?) that B&O is about to find out how to make white aluminum!

    The shape is beautiful and very much like what B&O might have done, right down to the moving parts.

    Amazing project and nice Minimal Art !

    It is perfect for me, just want to see

    through the aluminium the source and

    the level for the volume that I play !

    Great work again, hoping to see it on

    the market ! Thank you again Smile

    they are open-minded to new designer coming !

    have the courage to do. Remember I support you !

    Yes I found this article in danish http://ing.dk/artikel/121032--bang--olufsen-vil-skabe-hvid-aluminium

    it seems theyre really working on it, in 2007 it was definetely not possible. White aluminum will change everything , the popular white color will be available with the durability of aluminum. Really great !
