Hello, I just wonder if anyone here has connected a couple of Beolab 20 via Toslink to an Airport Express? In that case what is the experience? Would the volume level be adjustable from the IOS unit? What about sound quality? Will the Toslink connection put the loudspeakers in standby when not used and put them on when used?

Best regards

I use GoogleCast device rather than an AE - and yes, speakers turn in and off in step with the source starting to play or stopping the play.

Volume is adjustable from iPhone but you mus keep it quite "low" as it is very easy to have BL20s SHOUTING rather than singing.

Quality is good.

Thanks. Sounds good. I will try a chrome cast solution when I receive the speakers and then later I think I will add an Beosound Core or an updated Moment.

The google audio puck is cheap enough that you will barely feel any pain if you decide you don't like it !
