Nick Odantzis has a Mo­ment

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

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.
