The spec sheet doesn't show DTS, though quite often the spec sheet is a bit inaccurate initially. It has inbuilt TuneIn for example, though its missing from the spec sheet.is this 3.0, like the sonos playbar? Or can is it capable of emulating 3.1/5.1?
Also wonder if this has DTS support.
Agreed, though it may only be comparable spec wise to a degree. Surely the Amber has more HDMI ports I'm guessing, which matters to some I suppose. And the B&O Stage is designed as a stand alone sound bar, not really expandable with a sub or rears.I really thought this would be more expensive than the Sennheiser Ambeo. Interesting.
There's a decent (if not comprehensive) review by B&O Manchester on YT.No problem, thanks.
Thanks, I watched that last night. I was kind of hoping they would have played something (which I realise wouldn't be a true way of listening to it), but alas they didn't.There's a decent (if not comprehensive) review by B&O Manchester on YT.
Supposed to sound superb, and for B&O actually not absurdly priced at 1250.
An added attraction is the ability to use the B&O (TV) remote if you partner the Stage with a C9 (and possibly other 2019 LG's I think).

I then watched another new YT after this, however what they played music wise was utter garbage!
I guess I will have to wait for a decent review to come out or pop down to my local B&O shop.
Believe me, the fact this has no external bass option (that I am aware of) is something I have thought long and hard over, albeit not due to room size.No subwoofer out is a real shame imho.
I'm sure it sounds pretty good without, but a sub can add so much more.
I have a large room at 7m x 7m with pretty tall ceilings. I have struggled to get a full warm sound in that room with some seriously capable speakers on their own with no sub.
Speakers that are rated at -3db at 30hz and been a bit too bassy in my other room, 7m x 4m, have sounded very bass light in that room.
A sub just gives you so much more versatility.
For me, this could have been a perfect, keep it neat solution, a way to lose all the boxes. I ran a Beovison 8 for ages with just the soundbar built into the TV and a sub connected to the TV, plenty good enough for music too. Without the sub though it just didn't quite cut it.
Are these out yet? I will definitely try one.
Bet it's bassier than my Sonos Beam though I must be easily impressedYeah, popped into B&O Windsor yesterday and had a quick listen.
For the size it was pretty impressive, however, it does sound like a unit with small bass drivers producing bass though cleaver design, rather than a true effortless bass you get with a nice 8-10" driver.
It reminded me of a pair of Sonos Play 5's, which is not a bad thing. But I would personally want to be able to plug my sub in it.
I 'might' grab one for my sitting room, but it would not fill my main roof.
They had it all connected up to an LG C9 Oled, and with the Beoremote one it will all feel very B&O.
Great idea, loverly design and sounds good, but lack of sub out for me is a real shame.
