Is there any way to buy ice power modules directly?

    Hello, I have entered the sales page of Bang and Olufsen, I have followed your instructions, I have requested to buy 5 units of their ASX modules from Ice Power, but I only get silence, they do not answer, it is intriguing.
    Does anyone have any similar experience?
    Any advice or idea?

    Thanks from Spain. :)

    Are you a legitimate original equipment manufacturer (OEM)? The usual way it works it that you buy an evaluation sample or two, then if all goes well you buy quite a few more than five units. Since I'm not in the EU I don't want to go into more detail than that.

    I thought B&O sold the ICE Power division. Perhaps they have their own office to order from now.

    Thanks for the reply. Well I try to be a constructor, I have several Ice Power modules in my power. I guess that for me to be able to sell 5, 10, 15 or 20 modules, I do not know, they will need to know what I'm going to use them for, I guess, I'm not sure.
    It baffles me a lot that they do not do the simple job of answering the emails, I have been correct and I explain my intentions well. I suppose that in order to sell the OEM material directly to builders, you must need many quantities. :whistle:

    The US ICE rep has always been very prompt in getting back to me. But yeah, I think you generally need to lay out a very specific business plan in order to get their attention. And keep in mind that the NAMM show is only a few weeks away, and many manufacturers are crazy busy right now because of that. In any case, I've often found that a telephone call works much better than email in a situation like yours.

    Also, you mentioned selling modules, but hopefully you mean buying them, right? They want and expect you to sell a finished product, not raw modules.

    And finally, there are many DIY'ers and others on Talkbass who might like to see what you've already built. I can tell you first hand that plenty of industry people do pay some attention to that. Yel_wink.

    Thanks friend Passingwind. I agree with you, and confirm my suspicions about the attitude of B & O.
    My project is slow, since it is a super specific equipment to be used with the electric bass (mainly) takes many parts machined in Aluminum, 3 floors of PCB, valves, etc ... which generates a job in 3D design and CNC later, it is very compact, so everything must be well measured.
    Now, i,m with the prototype, and from there, build 5 units ... to see how the idea works among my professional bass friends. As this is a hobby, but a little more serious maybe, in mid-2018 you may have the website prepared, the rewiews made and everything well checked. For the moment ... I will buy the Ice Power modules on Ebay.
    Thanks for your words.
