New Additions for the Bang & Olufsen Boutique at Abt

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Bang & Olufsen just announced the impending release of BeoVision 8. It’s a 40” LCD that is slightly smaller and less expensive than the BeoVision 10. The latest BeoVision has 240Hz motion processing, creating a picture refresh rate practically twice that of traditional LCD TVs. What would a Bang and Olufsen TV be without B&O signature sound? Not the BeoVision 8. Bang and Olufsen made sure their latest effort has all the sound quality that you would expect from and B&O product. The BeoVision will be available at Abt this June for just over $5,000 and is available for pre-order right now. Speak with a Bang and Olufsen sales specialist today for more information.

Web Sales Favorite Products

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I thought I would take a poll of the internet sales team, working this morning, to find out what their favorite Abt.com product is right now. Everyone had very different responses. If you want to put a face with a name, check out the web sales page on Abt.com.

Starting with Conrad S., his favorite item is a “GE Profile (Champagne) High-Efficiency Washer – WPGT9150HMG top loading washing machine with the capacity and energy efficiency of a front load at a lesser price. I like it so much I actually do laundry to help my wife out. It works great.”

Steve P. loves the selection of Oakley Sunglasses. “They are great in the bright sun when I play golf.”

Kevin R. loves his Python Remote Car Starter from Viper. “It definitely helps during those cold nights where I’m the last to leave in the department. Plus, it makes me feel ‘Willis Tower’.”

Brian E. likes the Playstation 3 because he can watch his extensive collection of blu-rays and play video games too.

Megan M. loves the Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 600 Series Speakers. She enjoys the superb audio quality at such a reasonable price.

Victor R.’s favorite product is the Pioneer Flagship In-Dash A/V Receiver with DVD playback. It interfaces with an iPod and has a navigation unit all-in-one. He likes it because it does so much and doesn’t clutter up his car.

Tim S. uses Bang and Olufsen A8 series headphones. “These are the best sounding in ear headphones that actually stay in my ears when I’m doing things that are active (skiing, sledding, chasing my dog around, etc.).”

Isaac B. doesn’t like watching commercials when he’s finished with a long day at work. The Hi-Def Tivo eliminates commercials and he can watch his favorite TV Shows, like True Blood and The Office, after work.

Mark S. finishes the day with the Human Touch Compact Acuvibe Handheld Massager. He comes home, eats a late dinner and massages the day away.

Carl C. won’t make coffee unless he gets filtered water from his fridge. The Whirlpool filter makes his coffee taste great.

Rafael P. listens to his XM Satellite Radio on the way to work everyday. “It’s commercial free and has a huge variety of music options.”

Blake B. relaxes listening to his Boston Acoustics Duo-i Plus Black iPod Speaker System. “The quality and value are amazing for such a low price.”

Carl P. and David S. make dinner with their Weber Genesis Grills. “It’s a great way to cook steaks in the summer or winter.”

What are your favorite appliances or electronics? Let me know!

B&O is on the Move

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Bang & Olufsen moved to a new home in the Abt showroom. For the convenience of Abt customers, it’s being moved into the home theater department in the front of the store. Mark Sasicki, a manager and buyer at Abt, is excited about the move.

The new Bang & Olufsen store has the full line of audio, video, and communications products on display. Chirag Shah, a sales expert on the B&O line, was telling me that one of the new products in the store, the BeoTime alarm clock is more than just an alarm clock. It’s touch screen and functions as a remote control for any other B&O products in the room. The BeoTime doesn’t look like an average remote—it looks just like a flute.

Another new product by B&O is the BeoCom 5. It is a 2-line speaker phone with mobility. This new addition to the B&O communications line allows the user to take the speaker away from where it’s docked and move about the home or office.

Coming soon to the B&O store… A 55” LED TV by the beginning of the year. Come see the new B&O store during the Customer Appreciation Sale for its grand re-opening!
