I was a avid fan of the stereo review in the 80s and these gadgets caught my imagination. Never did get a chance to test them out or hear a demo. They were awesome to me. Anyone hear owns any of these or at least heard a demo them?

I recollect seeing pics of B&O audio equipment in Popular Science
mags - they looked literally out of Star Wars.

yep, the B&O range of audio and Video products were way ahead of their time. I guess even today those flat AVRs that B&O used to make in the 70s and 80s have no parallels even today.
