Still owns a very big segment of them. Which means they can use the name how they see fit in that space . That’s really what they wanted the brand licence, love them or hate them they have a recognition.Samsung owns only Bang & Olufsen's Automotive car audio business via Harman International, not entire B&O.
will the rotel "partnership" be replaced by marantz instead ?Yes, they deserve better than being jerked around to make stupid wireless clones when they have such a great heritage.
Wish they could return to their roots, but the volume and $$ are in headphones etc!
Glad the new buyers have a hifi pedigree, but I guess the old Rotel partnership is going to bite the dust?
I never realised that about Pana / Leica. That’s quite cheeky.As long as there allowed to do there thing then its a good thing, Samsung own B&O and many others and let them get on with it. BUT it allows the brands name to get used on things. Like how Panasonic slap Leica name on things when they really haven't been involved, its a proper money maker for the brand holder.
Because they have nothing to do with it. Samsung wholly owns the harman group. And you corrected me because I said B&O as a whole and meant to say the car audio segment.That is incorrect. If you check B&O's annual report, they don't mention car audio at all.
