Once upon a time, around a decade ago, it was almost impossible to obtain Bang & Olufsen products in clean-cut white. The colour had fallen out of favour at a time when most products being manufactured by Bang & Olufsen were a mixture of just black and aluminium. How times have changed! Some of the most memorable, and today proving to be the most popular, products that Bang & Olufsen ever made were those finished in pure white. From the beautifully minimal Beosystem 7000 to the simple BeoCom 1401; from the clean-cut television sets of the 1990s such as the BeoVision MX7000 to the sublime Beosystem 4500 with its brilliant streak of white embellishing an almost-perfect svelt hi-fi system. Even during the 1960s it was always possible to order Bang & Olufsen audio and video products in a variety - although limited - of colours, at least to special order.
White rules the roost
White has again been recently reintroduced by the company, with many of the current crop of products also now being available in white: the BeoLab 5, Beolab 8002, the speaker fret of the BeoVision 10, and the BeoSound 8 with white speaker covers and white shell, to name but a few.
And to bring the product line-up right up-to-date the BeoSound 5 Encore has joined the ranks of whiteness with the introduction of the digital music player finished with a fresh white surround.
