Alfa, you need to get out of this mode of 'asking the next poster a question', that's a different thread sweetie. :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Three things:

My B&O Stereo
Photoalbums
The little bottle of Pierre Cardin After Shave my mother gave me before she died 15 years ago, and it is still half full


It's cute that you say 'half full'. There's hope for you yet Vaucluse. I think we must have the same stereo, it is magnificent.


:oops: Aw shucks . . . Oh I miss her so, even after all this time . . .


Yes, the B&O is brilliant - I have some B&O cordless phones as well but dissapointing . . . Had a B&O TV a few years ago, but quite disappointing.

Stereo? Loooooooooooooooooove it!

Is it the beosound9000? The six CD changer on the tower? It's almost as beautiful to look at as it is to listen to...
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

B&O may look nice, but you pay for design not for the quality... :(

Well, the superhero I married: GADGET BOY! brought it home one day and I was skeptical. I mean it cost about the GNP of Bolivia or something. But I love it. Even the remote feels good in your hand.

hahaha, sensitive issue vaucluse? :D

B&O is for the snobbish, Denon, Naim Audio, Rega, Marantz, Mission, KEF, Nakamichi, Tannoy, FT, Van Meerdevoorde is for the enthusiast and those who appreciate sound as it should sound. :P

Enjoy your B&O, but don't close your eyes to enjoy the audio, cause the magic will be gone instantly... :mrgreen:

That's the beauty part of Vaucluse. Always says in one word what takes me paragraphs...

Sometimes that's all it takes, like with Eric and his ill-informed 'let's knock B&O' diatribe . . .

B&O is a bit like buying the Porsche Cayenne and think you acquired the best SUV around, but then it turns out that the chassis and suspension is actually the same as that of the Kia Sorrento.

It porbably fits nice in the stylish and distinguished interiors in your places, but it is in no way top quality audio. Any specialist would assure you... Go ask for some advice at Peninsular Plaza at the 2nd and 3rd floor hifi freak shops, you'll be amazed what they sell there, sheer beauty for the ears. No B&O by the way.
