  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    Seriously unimpressed by Beoworld refering my last post (yet to be published) to Moderation this morning. Lost track of time....but has to be 2 to 3 hours already and suspect it is to do with word count. I could be wrong but unimpressed right now

    [quote user="Dkatz"] Mr10Percent – I completely agree with you. Perhaps the problem is with the consumer and the throwaway culture of today. But let me ask you. Would you want to buy an iPod dock that plays compressed media, that's made in China and is much lower grade than the other products, yet costs 900 pounds and will only be

    [quote user="tournedos"] 10%, I think you missed my point. [/quote] No, I dont think I missed your point. Or at least I dont think so. If there is a peg of DKK to Eur or whatever currency and there is a shift in say GBP of 20% in exchange rate as you indicate, then it does not come for free. 20% less DKK going to B&O for 1000GBP of kit

    [quote user="tournedos"] But B&O doesn't operate in pounds, it operates in DKK (and that currency is practically fixed to Euro). [/quote] Yes it does operate in DKK. But I'm 100% certain it buys its Aluminium in USD, its plastics (oil derrived) in USD and other electronic in Yen, USD, SGD, or RMB irrespective of where it makes

    [quote user="Puncher"] [quote user="symmes"] 20% loss of currency value to Euro over that period does not help [/quote] True, it would be interesting to see the same data for the Danish & German markets. [/quote] In general it will be roughly the same. The market prices and movement of goods through Europe - even in 1980, and

    [quote user="Puncher"] It may well be, but it clearly highlights the issue at hand - products aren't selling and prices are increasing. [/quote] Yes Puncher. They are. But other things are also changing:- Personal taxation, indirect taxation, salaries, mortgages, commodities etc.... certain things that people buy are also getting cheaper

    [quote user="Puncher"] Not sure I entirely agree with this, firstly disposable income is post tax but doesn't take into account fixed monthly outgoings such as mortages, fuel, food, VAT etc. [/quote] Maybe not, but that is a personal choice isnt it? Further, looking at personal taxation for a UK individual, one could argue from 1980 to

    [quote user="bayerische"] I would like to see a B&O financial spreadsheet from.... 1996, or 1999, or 1989. This is when products like the TV's was priced at about twice that of the competitors high-end model. Silly inflation hadn't started. Obviously the strategy with a 20.000 euro TV didn't work out.
