  • Re: Most beautiful B&O speaker ever built

    No debate, 8000. And the fact it's still in the product line supports that. 6000 looks nice too. Also have to agree with Trip on the Redlines. I love them as well. Pentas don't really do it for me. Nor do the 4000s. And I'm not a big fan of B&O's wooden box speakers, even though they have very nice covers. Still a wooden box. Now

  • Re: B&O going 3D - good or bad idea ?

    I heard on the BBC recently that in the US - which has had this latest revival of 3D the longest - the numbers are falling for 3D movie attendances. Seems that a lot of movie-goers don't think its worth paying the extra couple of bucks. It's too soon to say that the boom has turned to bust already, but I think the consumer wants more than just

  • Re: Wife doesn't like BeoLab 9s

    I'm with your wife and Paul Winn on this. We can talk about quality of construction and sound and vision and integration and all of that techie stuff but surely the real reason we own B&O stuff is that we want to be different. BL8000s are the very definition of B&O - elegant, striking, real conversation pieces - and I have my wife's

  • Beolink Wireless Question

    Hi Beofans, Hoping one of you masterlink experts may be able to answer this query. I have a BC6 (ML video product) connected to a BC9300 (MCL/Datalink audio product) using a Beolink 1611 converter. It's all hard-wired in its current location but I'll be moving shortly to a new home where cabling will be very difficult. Is it possible to use

  • B&O designer to speak at London product design conference

    One of B&O's designers is going to be speaking at a Product Design conference in London. Torsten Valeur works with David Lewis and the website says he was responsible for the Beocom 2, among other products. Does not say what he is going to talk about. Here's a link http://conference.pdesigni.com/pdi2011/speakers

  • Re: Beovision 10 - 46 Dont bye it :-(

    Sorry to hear you have been having such a bad time with the BV-10. There were a number of problems reported with earlier models which were also showing up on Samsung's own LED models. This certainly sounds like a screen-related issue. A friend of mine has just bought a Samsung 46inch LED model so I'll be interested to get a good look at that

  • Re: Beosound 8 and design

    I've yet to see one close up but the BS8 does not look that attractive to me. That said, I don't believe B&O are aiming it at me. They need to design something to attract the iPod generation. Sure, I have an iPod but to me it is something that supports my audio-visual experience, not that sits at the centre of it. I suspect most of the people

  • Re: Where is BeoSound8 made?

    Hi Dude 1 - sorry to leave the reply hanging. No I did not feel duped that the BC2200 was not "real" B&O. It was an entry to the world of B&O design. It was not true B&O but the price reflected that. The BC2200 cost around 3 times what an average Japanese music centre cost at the time but it looked a lot better. A BS8 costs around

  • Re: Where is BeoSound8 made?

    Look, if we were going to worry about human rights we'd have to stop using oil and that's not going to happen. BS8 and the BV8 are both made in China. They are not made to B&O's traditional level of finish but they are more affordable and attract newcomers to the brand. I started my path to B&O with a Beocenter 2200 which was a repackaged

  • Re: Where is BeoSound8 made?

    One of the reasons B&O will be having the BS8 made in China will be the availability of companies to do it. All of the large contract electronics companies - Flextronics, Foxconn, etc - are now almost exclusively based in China. And it is an ipod dock, not a mainstream B&O product. Like the 2200s of old they are looking for a way to get new
