  • Re: BeoLab 50

    [quote user="ps57"] Hi all BeoWorld nerds - being new to Beoworld blogs I dare to give my thoughts on BL50. A speaker that might cause me to spent the money! I am very impressed by the sound quality of BL90, especially image location and the low frequency ability without resonances. Huge improvements to BL5 based on the technologies "Beam Direction Control" (in full frequency range) and "Active Room Compensation". Looking into Geoff Martins blogs regarding technical

    [quote user="Puncher"] UNLESS ... some of this wizzo-tech filters down into a real 8000 replacement for the legion who would be interested (but they better be quick about it)!! [/quote] As I've previously said on this forum.....the BL5's sold a few thousand through life cycle, the BL90's probably will sell a few hundred (bet there are more in showrooms than in homes). I've also heard that the 90's are definitely a halo product with very little margin. So on that basis

    [quote user="olvisab"] The positiv fact for me is that they kept at least one acoustic lens (appears and disappear) [/quote] This would be a good economical way to do a "Wide/Omni" and "Narrow" beam width without trebling up on drivers and amps. Whether there is too much difference in how this voices from one mode to another I guess we will have to wait and see (hear)

  • Re: Time to upgrade?

    To add a little more..... No compunction to keep the latest and greatest TVs. A lot of media is either poor quality or cr@p to watch anyway. Give me decent music, decent rendering and some proper loudspeakers to listen to and I'm happy

  • Re: Time to upgrade?

    Interesting views and no-doubt time are a changin'. The game I'm currently playing is this; all the (old) speakers (BL3s) are now disseminated around the house connected to Essences and good until they die or become un-economical to service. TVs - buy new or lightly used, one lady owner stuff. Trickle-down every 3 years from lounge to sitting room, to bedroom 1, to bedroom 2, to office. Either it is unserviceable, can be sold privately, or p/xed to buy a stand or a remote. All in all you

  • Re: Time to upgrade?

    [quote user="moxxey"] The key additional problem for me, apart from the trade-in price difference, is simply the quality of the new TV compared to your existing panel. Sure the BV14-55 has a brighter and sharper panel, but is it *that* much better than my superb BV12-65? No, minimal. So, maximum outlay, for minimum visual return. [/quote] Moxxey, With the 12-65, I would state you have a great usable TV for many years to come. Just because it is not the freshest dairy product in the cooler

  • Re: Beosound5 Radio woes (again)

    If you can, have a look in this windows file structure iirc, there may be some *.ibx files in a backup file. I don't have access now to run through it and give a more definitive answer. Alternatively, if you can install and run the old beoplayer on a PC, register and connect to the BS5, this may activate the radio stations. Not very intuitive but that's B&O for you.

  • Re: Beosound essence can you help me for configuration

    If you have access to a iPad and download the BeoSetup App (soon to be discontinued), you gan setup the Essence to a) give maximum volume (0-90) and b) show default start-up volume. I assume the Android app does the same.
