Nick Odantzis has a Moment
If B&O set out to ruin my life by tempting me with things I really shouldn’t be spending money on, then it has achieved its goal. B&O’s skill is in making things so beautiful your heart aches until you cough up the money for one.
What really sold the Moment to me was simplicity. Too often I sit at my computer and think “What do I want to listen to?” and then settle for a playlist I’m bored of. The Moment promises to give me music based on my mood. But more than that, it’s the idea of using the Moment’s wooden front surface to control my music that makes me drool in a decidedly unsophisticated way. This is B&O at its costly, beautiful and aspirational best.
It may be expensive, but if you really, really like your music, and treat it as an experience rather than just a choice, you’ll find a way of scraping together the coin.
