  • Re: S8 + connection hub

    [quote user="Petedub"] Thank you for your info. Does the range of volume control through the hub give a full range. e.g. zero up to earth shattering? [/quote] I too have an S8 connection hub in use with a non-B&O TV and Beolab 9. Yes its volume control goes full range zero to ear splitting.

  • Re: 5.1 B&O active speakers to non-B&O processor. Seems easy, but local installer claims I'm looking for trouble. Would like confirmation.

    Yes it will work. I used that same cable (from Powmas cables) to connect a BL8000 & BL2 to a non-B&O preamp without issue in an earlier set up. Triggering worked perfectly and yes it handles standard 12v > 1,5v trigger no problem. You might also need a din8 > b&o new-style rj45 cable to connect to BL20s. B&O loudspeakers are line-level so therefore always at maximum volume, you control the actual SPL by attenuating the input signal. Properly wired and shielded cables do not

  • Re: Send audio via Apple TV to Essence ?

    [quote user="davelarue"] Anyone tried streaming a movie with apple tv, where the Essence has been chosen as audio source? Is this working reliably? I'm asking because i want a wireless setup. Thanks. [/quote] I tried something similar once, it does work BUT... On the AppleTV selecting a speaker for Airplay (audio), the settings do not save. Once either box goes to standby or sleep, you have to once again select AirPlay speaker (Essence in your case). Annoying. Honestly I would think

  • Re: The BeoLab streaming computer

    Filled out the survey. Basically I would want a solution that would be a cut-down beosystem forgoing loads of inputs however, combining modern toslink or HDMI-ARC & CEC. Use case is a non-b&o tv and analogue Beolab 9. Might eventually upgrade to BL5 which has its own unique connectivity. Currently use a Beoplay s8 hub which is great, but no integrated streaming. Beosound Core now has AirPlay great, but only one input and volume control is the same flaky wheely. So basically the music system

  • Re: Beolab 8000 Bass Calibration

    I've not heard of setting a particular number to amplifier output other than on BL1 & 9 which is to match individual driver sensitivity. b&o mark each driver according to some testing procedure. Perhaps b&o are referring to VAC peak rather than RMS? Is your meter capable reading VAC "true" RMS? Most cheap meters on AC only are reliable a low mains frequencies 50-60hz. Audio amplifiers (apart from real PA ones) actually output relatively low total power.

  • Re: Beolab 8000 Bass Calibration

    Could be. Earlier 8000 had an additional analogue 'passive' xover rather than the later ones both drivers being wired in parallel. Also are you testing with or without a load (driver) connected? It's pretty standard to test AC outputs loaded, audio or otherwise. This is due to the tiny resistance that DMM places on circuit under test, leading to inaccurate readings. Tiny components are one thing, 'power' sources are another.

    Okay. Did you twiddle with the other unit as well?
