    Not very surprising. Their prices compare badly to things like Netstreams, which are much more capable.

    I'm not suprised either. They overprice a lot of their products and esspecially their television-sets so extremely.
    Who would buy them who is serious looking for value for money?

    Value for money is not one of B&O's marketing strategies, aesthetics and desirability and of people with too much cash are!

    B&O are pretty much the Macs of the Audio/Visual world.

    i'd hardly call macs over priced and elitist

    since they're all based on intel ( since jan 06 ) they can run windows xp and vista as well as os-x and pricewise they're pegged to the equivalent dell

    you really should do your research before posting such misinformed drivel

    bno on the other hand are utterly out of touch with a/v reality and imo have lost the plot completely recently , the last decent tv they made was the avant , their current range is simply laughable

    they'd love to be another apple but it just ain't gonna happen , not as long as they charge £7k for a 40 inch lcd tv that has freeview as - wait for it - an option*

    *it's now standard - but it costs you £450 on top off the rrp ...

    oh dear..
