  • Re: Cars: Fact or Fiction?

    [quote user="Mr10Percent"] That said, once one commits to spending above X-amount on a car, the principle use of the car (getting reliably and safely from A to B) becomes superflous and transforms into a pleasure device who's purpose (and incremental value) is in the eye of the beholder (or owner).[/quote] Some very interesting posts here

  • Re: B&O pricing policy

    [quote user="MartinW"]I'm amazed you have had no price increase since 2010 - currency fluctuations have hammered UK pricing over the past couple of years. Each dealer is free to set their own pricing, it's not a B&O policy. However based on the cost of the product tithe dealer and the overheads of operating a dealership - combined

  • Re: The Audiophile & B&O

    [quote user="Jeff"] I guess I am, or used, to be what might be considered an "audiophile" but not an audiophool. One of the things that I find enjoyable about B&O is it basically freed me of the obsessive need to worry about different components, etc. I'd already moved from subjectivist to objectivist in my philosophy, thanks

    [quote user="TWG"]a little bit off topic... but you are wrong! Perhaps the "modern" made in Cina mechanisms are crap, but the old school mechanisms are surprisingly reliable: [/quote] I'd be very happy to be proven wrong, as I own a couple of ES Sony CD/DVD/SACD players and hope they last a while yet! Both the DVP-S9000ES and

    [quote user="wesheltonj"] One more thing about China. As I have said before they make good in the trash can products. As an example. My 4th in under a year Samsung BD-D7500 Blu-ray player has just bit the dust. These are $350 US each, that 4 in under a year. And they only reason to buy this china crap, is because its PUC code for B&O.

    [quote user="Dkatz"] [quote user="Jonathan"] Once an English company is sold to another country, that company is no longer an English company. For example Lotus. Do you think the profits from Lotus go to an English company? Or do they go to a Malaysian company? Lotus WAS an english company, but has since been sold and has become

    ER *cough* On another thread under the lifestyle section, I started a thread called Cars, Fact or Fiction, to hopefully discuss the ins and outs of motor vehicles as regards in particular, measurable quality versus perceptions and 'opnions' of such quality. In particular, I have thoughts of buying a Mercedes, in part because it is German and

  • Cars: Fact or Fiction?

    Hello Everybody As a car buff, but one who currently doesn't own a car, I had a conversation recently with an old friend who is an engineer, and a very pragmatic and somewhat opinionated one at that. His point was that the modern car is CAD/CAN designed and manufactured using mainly robotised production methods, and consequently perceptions between
