B&O is only sold at B&O shops - why sell it with all the garbage in low-rent areas?


Oh, a phone call, let me turn down the TV, which is connected to my stereo, on my telephone . . .

Yes, Eric - reviews have been read, comparisons instigated and choices made - B&O was and is mine, and that of many others for their own reasons - it is not for you to presume why people make their choices.

Don't have a B&O? Tough. Have something else? Good for you, I'm sure it suits your taste.

See? You have your choice, others have theirs.

Let's see, shall I tell you what car I have or will you tell me it's like having a B&O.


Oh, this is a dead horse, isn't it? Flog, flog, flog

Speel de bal, niet de man...

cheap try vaucluse, you disappoint me here.

Be happy with B&O, I am all cool with that. Swatch also only sells at swatch shops, top brand isn't it?

No :boxing: I have a B&O stereo, I don;t need anyone to come up and say:

You have B&O? - well, that's for posers and only for looks: XYZ and ABC are better . . . .

Sigh, couldn't give a monkey's what's better or worse.


Eric, there was nor ball to play and I didn't play the man. There was not even a game.

vaucluse, chill out. You are now misinterpreting and manipulating the discussion.

I only replied B&O is not about quality but all about design. That obviously triggered you. So be it.

Enjoy your stereo, whatever brand it is, as bh10y said.

If you get defensive about me saying it is not the top of the bill, I wonder why that is. Again, it is not so much discussing your stereo, but merely the quality as such of B&O. I was actually more aiming for a discussion on good quality stereos, but you straight away got into defensive mode.

BH10Y, here's the pup which barked for me the first time ever, as a mother of 7 adorable little ones!
Her expression is like - Can you get out of my face?? :lol:

Lol, well all I can say is that she wasn't my dog, nor were the pups mine. But, it was gutwrenching each time my friends gave away a pup. They were such adorable little munchkins! And, you never want them to grow up!

When we adopted our big guy, we lived in the US for a brief period years ago. It was a beautiful winter day in the middle of February. High, bright blue sky. Bracingly, frigidly, hurts to breathe, cold. Everywhere you could look, nothing but snow and sky. Gorgeous. He was born in a dairy barn with other labs and 200 head of dairy cows. It was so warm and snug inside the barn, outside it was -5 F.

He chose us, more or less. Just a big boned blond with impossibly huge paws. We stayed and played with the other puppies and spoke to the farmer/breeder for a while. When at last it was time to leave, his mother was sitting in our car and wouldn't leave. Honest to god, there she was in one of the big bucket seats. It was all we could do to coax her out of the car. It was heartbreaking really. She sat in the middle of the road and watched our car drive off down the dirt road for miles. He is actually named after her.

Next summer I plan to go back to the same farm and get another one. I just don't want to wake up one day and find no, ...

well, you know.

After reading another little poetic posting of bh10y, I am in my sensitive mode again...

So, vaucluse, no worries, my heart aches when having to think we're no buddies here. HUG ME!!! :D
