Dear B&O,

We love our beolabs. Would be great if you could upgrade the Receiver 1's and the Transmitter to work with Beolab 5. Please also make sure the Receiver 1's is designed so they fit inside the back casing, for a cleaner setup.

I guess i am not the only one wanting to wisa-enable the beolab 5's...

Cheers!Yes - thumbs up

As it happens, this morning my B&O dealer's engineer repaired one of the PL connectors (BL5 to BV11) and we talked about WISA connecting my Beolab 5 speakers. My BV11 has WISA so he said I only needed to buy a receiver, i.e. implying that what you (and I) want is possible already. Can anybody confirm this ???  Thanks !

As far as I know, it’s not compatible with the BL5s.

Hi davelarue,

In theory, you CAN use Transmitter1/Receiver 1 with Beolab 5.....  Simply use an RJ45 to RCA cable from the Receiver 1 output to the Line input of the speaker, then activate the speaker in Line mode via the B&O remote:-

Maybe this isn't the perfect, seamless solution we all wanted, but it will at leaast allow the Beolab 5s to work wirelessly.

Kind regards, Steve.

You mean "in practice" (line-in tip), because in theory (Powerlink), you can't... Wink

Here is an extract of the press release:

BeoLab Transmitter 1 and BeoLab Receiver 1 run on the WiSA standard to allow wireless connection between Bang & Olufsen components in the same room. The receiver works with all Bang & Olufsen active speakers with the exception of BeoLab 5.

Hi CB,

Thanks for that, you are quite correct....  I have a decent grasp of electronics, my English, however could be better! Whistle

To summarise - yes, you CAN use Beolab 5 wirelessly with Transmitter 1/Receiver 1, by using the Line inputs on the speakers.

Kind regards, Steve.
