  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    [quote user="Jonathan"] [quote user="Dkatz"] I lived in London for 5 ½ years, which is probably far more multicultural than any city in Australia. I met and befriended people from almost every country in the world, and as mentioned I had flatmates from China, Japan, Cameroon, France, England, Italy, many countries in that

    According to a recent BBC Newsnight report,millions of chinese are being expoited,in factories,as migrant labour because of the government's lack of further reform of the 'Hukou',class residency permit system. Because people are not living in the area specified on their residency permit,they,and their families,are not entitled to free education

    [quote user="beocool"] [quote user="bayerische"] Moxxey, That is probably true but the mainstream high-end or hifi community still sees B&O as a lovely "looking" box without any innards to speak of... I've felt like Don Quiote on many occations on the local HiFi forum in Finland. My cousin is has been in the HiFi

    Moxxey, a very recent case in point. The unemployed geology graduate being forced to work in Poundland for 2 weeks,in order to continue to receive benefits,is suing the Government for breach of her human rights.

    [quote user="Mr10Percent"] I see the problem not as B&O getting more and more expensive. I see the problem as other manufacturers becoming more and more inexpensive [/quote] This is certainly true of TVs. Apart from B & O,and Loewe,where does one look for a high quality product? Following the demise of Fujitsu,and Pioneer,the trend

    [quote user="Tod Daniel"] I totally agree! My ears don't lie. I can tell within a few seconds whether a sound system is good or not. The BS8 as I said sounds absolutely rubbish to my ears and the fact that £299 micro systems sound so better better in every way. BS8 - Horrible, cheaply made little rip off. [/quote] Sound quality is

  • Re: Will there be a BV 10-55 as a follow up for the discontinued BV 9?

    [quote user="Tod Daniel"] 2012 is the year of OLED. LG have just launched a 55inch one and apparently, its picture quality is outstanding in every possible way. This is going to make LCD screens incredibly poor in comparison overnight. Tim, i sincerely suggest that you wait a little while. This market is changing very fast and really, you'll

    I think the potential problem with a 55" edge lit LED TV is that the panel size would accentuate even more the problems inherent in the technology. To make the TV full backlit LED would increase the set's depth,not to mention it's cost.

    Having recently bought a Miele washing machine,and tumble dryer,I was intrigued to notice that the washing machine is made in Germany,but the tumble dryer was not. Reference to http://www.miele.com/international/enint/company/locations_13536.htm reveals they have production plants in Austria, The Czech Republic,Romania,and.........wait for it......China

    On the basis of 'the proof of the pudding is in the eating',the apparent success of the Beolit 12 suggests that B & Os decision to outsource it's manufacture has not deterred buyers. To my mind,one has to consider the trends within a market into which one is introducing a new product. One with rapid technological change,such as television
