Beosound 8 and Soundsticks II

Beosound 8, desk system from my countrymen in Denmark, Bang & Olofsen, has taken the crown as the most expensive iPod sound-system at $ one neat grand. It will service an iPad too.
Obviously what we in Denmark call (with a german word) a "liebhaver" object, meaning a thing you own just for the love of it, and with the subtext that money is not an object.


I might look at it except that I have the outstanding Soundsticks II already in two rooms. They are compact, virtually High Fidelity, and way cheaper than the Beosound 8. They are actually shockingly cheap considering the quality.

Mr. Stobblehouse, I have been a long time admirer of both your blog and your other site, Domai. I'm curious: would you be willing to help a new blogger? I recently started a page of my own, and I need to get more exposure. I've posted a link to your site at the bottom of mine, so I'm wondering if you could return the favor? I'd appreciate your help.

Dovewing,
I don't do links exchanges, sorry. But if you have an article related to something in a post here, you're welcome to link to it in a comment (with a sentence saying what it's about).

Back to the matter in hand, please - speakers.

Has anyone experience of the more-recent version - the Soundsticks III, please - or seen any comprehensive reviews?

Thanks ?
