Bower and Wilkins Society of Sound still alive?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I subscribed to B&W society of sound until 2014. I wanted to check it again, but it seems the yearly subscription with 2 albums per month is not available anymore?

I can find the page to subscribe here: https://www.bowers-wilkins.net/Society_of_Sound/Society_of_Sound/Music/Subscribe.html

But t seems to work only for 3 months if you register a new product?

Does anyone have a current working subscription?

My subscription expired in September and to be honest I hadn't  noticed... too much going on.  I just called them to see what is happening and at the moment they are not taking on new subscribers and did not seem entirely clear whether the service would be continuing the service or not.... It would be a real shame if they did not continue as they provide a great mix of music which perhaps would be difficult to find otherwise...

 


Stereo Source: Auralic Aries + Mytek Brooklyn DAC+

Surround Source: Windows PC

Pre-amp: Mark Levinson ML380s, Anthem D2v

Speakers: ATC SCM50A (L/R/C), C4 (Sub), SCM20-2A (LR,RR)

I do, and 2 new albums were available for download just last week.

However, living in Belgium, I am accessing SoS  via B&W's europe website

I tried the EU website, no subscription possible at the moment.

That's the explanation. Thanks, Paul. $60 for 24 albums of good quality was a pretty good deal, That's one reason I wanted to give it another try.

This is unfortunate. I recently accessed the website and could find no way to join. Now I understand why. I would be really interested in the music they provided with Peter Gabriel playing a part in choosing them. Hopefully they do decide to eventually allow new subscribers.

I am still getting notifications of new albums - the last came the other.

 

Maybe it will end when my subscription expires...

The download page no longer exists.

The link to the download page is thru the account page now

What account page? The login page accessible from the front page rejects my credentials.

Nope.

Weird...

If I go to that login page, after I enter my info I'm taken to an account page - on the right side is a "society" link that takes me to a page of the downloads.

Just downloaded the most recent albums today...

You're just messing with me, aren't you?

Between you guys fucking with me and B&W disabling my account and hiding every trace of the SoS service just for me, the former seems far more likely.
