Final Frame: “Bootleg Objects” Sound Series

Although we've been longtime fans of Bang & Olufsen's design and technology heritage, specifically the museum-quality designs of Jacob Jensen (whose BeoMaster 2400 system we both own and adore), most of their modern selection leaves us nonplussed. The newest offerings are neither here nor there in regards to originality nor the high-priced components they sell to a design discriminating buyer. We wish B&O would take it "here", specifically like these reinterpretations of home audio classics created by Markus Wolf, whose “Bootleg Objects” series of reskinned home audio components from the likes of B&O, Braun and Technics has us wondering when home electronics will ever look this cool again...
