  • Re: Garden Speakers

    I'm planning to install the Sonance Sonarray SR1 this summer, but wondering how to connect it. The installer is adamant about using the Sonance amp SR 2-125 to power it. How would I connect this to a Beosystem 3? For amp inputs, it has L/R RCA, SPDIF Coax, or Toslink. Can I use a PowerLink to RCA and have it as a speaker zone? If I use an Essence, can I use an RJ45 to RCA cable? Image of the amp:

  • Re: New Beoplay H5, bluetooth

    I'm not sure how it's hard to understand that I enjoy my purchase, as do others. I am saying they fit comfortably, I enjoy the sound, and the cable noise is rarely an issue. I found the cable noise in my H3's more noticeable. For what I do - lots of travel and conference calls - they suit me very well, unlike the airpods or over the ear options. I need quick in/out on/off the phone or one ear at a time, etc. There are probably plenty of other options, but I am very happy with my purchase

  • Re: Where are B&O going right now?

    [quote user="Jeff"] Here's a point about pricing. I would love a surround sound processor like the Beosystem 4, however they don't make a separate center channel speaker anymore, and the BS4 is, in my view, very overpriced. [/quote] Totally agree on this. Plus, the BS4 doesn't have 4K or WISA built in, so it's not really the full guts of the current tv range. I've got an extra BL 7, but that would look quite out of place under the thin screens on the market today. Out

  • New Beoplay H5, bluetooth

    [quote user="Duels"] Can I ask what sort of music you listen to? [/quote] I listen to a wide variety of music from hard rock to orchestral. Maybe it's because I don't like the over the ear designs or the bass heavy trend, but these are significant steps above previous earbuds and the A8/3i's I used to wear. I find the H5 has much more bass than the A8/3i and other less expensive earbuds. So far my only complaint is I wish it had longer battery life. I still keep my H3s with

  • Re: New Beoplay H5, bluetooth

    I'm on my second pair of H5's (first pair got stolen), and it's been my favorite B&O purchase the last couple of years. I find the sound great, the microphone works better than my H3 ANC, and the freedom of no cables is a major benefit. Particularly as I travel constantly for work, these have been great for the plane and airports.

  • Re: Death Spiral?

    That's not good about Atlanta, but I know there is one shop in Houston, one in Austin, and a new shop in Dallas being fitted later this year. A couple of years ago there was nothing in Texas, so I was seeing positive signs...

  • Re: Beovision 14-55 buy now or wait for LG update?

    Having just listened to the B&O Q3 Interim Report, it sounds like the recent TV refresh is meant to last for some months, and they had little news on the LG partnership. I've been hesitating on an Avant NG, but think I may go forward since the software issues look to be getting resolved and I don't see anything imminent from LG (nor do we know specs, design, sizes, etc). I could wait for eternity always thinking about what gets released next...

  • Re: LG and the new/coming BV's - interesting read

    From the articles and rumors on this site, two thoughts come to mind. First, we are unlikely to see anything larger than 65" in the near term come from the LG agreement, so it seems the Avant stays in the range at least a few more years. Second, since we have BV14, Horizon, and Avant NG running Android, and older sets running something else, how likely is it B&O supports yet another user interface with the LG sets? Is Android temporary or is it here to stay? I've been on the verge of

  • Re: Receiver Specification Needed

    I'm in a similar position and trying to upgrade some parts (particularly video) while integrating our existing speakers and audio systems. It may help to list what you currently have and what you are looking to achieve.

  • Re: H3 or H5 ?

    I replaced my A8's with the H3 ANC and was surprised at how great they sound. The ANC is great for plane travel and noisy areas. I also picked up the H5's because I got the iPhone 7. The dongle and ANC "pod" were cumbersome for quick usage or to take a call on the go. It's going to depend on usage. The H5's are easy to carry and use but need to be charged regularly. The H3's are a little better sounding and don't have to be charged, but you have a cable (and in my
