A chance to talk to FlatpanelsHD's reviewers.
great review, thx.
I have just purchased the Stage and agree pretty much with all your comments. That said do not find a need for a separate remote, the app is pretty robust and accessible.

The stage really does have a quality feel and really does deliver a great sound and for a b&o product represents excellent value for money.

I am not saying if lg or Samsung had delivred the same unit it would be worth less it wouldn't and given b&0 are late into the soundbar market there first offer must have there competitors worrying about there pricing stratergys.
