  • Re: BeoSound Core Compatibility

    Thank you for your feedback Rudi. That's sad news because the product does not deliver on its promise then. If the Core would have a good DAC and no problems with the powerlink connection I would be willing to ditch my Sonos Connect. B&O should take this seriously because an improved interface can be a game changer for a lot of B&O users which currently use Sonos. I know that several people on the forum don't believe in high res streaming but it's out there now with Tidal and

  • Re: BeoSound Core Compatibility

    Rudi, I don't have the answer to your questions but I am very interested in these as well. What I know is that in contrast to the BL5 the Core can convert high res audio files up to 192 kHz. However, the question is whether the DAC of the Core in sound quality at least matches that of the built-in DAC of the BL5. To me this is not clear because B&O has installed an optical output on the Core. Also, DACs have evolved considerably the last decade while the BL5 date from early 2000s. If you

  • Re: BeoSound Core Compatibility

    Hello MM, Being interested in the BS Core myself, is there any info available on the quality of its internal DAC? I am very interested in the product and would like to use it with my Beolab 5 speakers. Until now I have fed the BL 5 with a direct coaxial signal from Sonos connect or my TV via a manual switch. The BS Core would provide a straightforward solution alowing me to switch from Sonos to B&O for music while accepting digital in from my TV. However I would need to use powerlink cables I

  • Re: What drives your BeoLab 5's or BeoLab not5's?

    For me it is : 2: BL5 + music hall DaC (digitally input + output sonos + oppo) 3: BC2 + beolab penta I find it a pitty that that the BC 2 cannot be digitally connected to the BL5. This is my solution for some years now. Maybe I can connect everything digitally to a Beosystem 4 in the future. Regards!

    It seems that this player indeed would fit my needs! Since I am sure to stick with B&O there is no need for an A/V receiver. Of course a pre/amp for multichannel processing offers a lot of flexibility for future changes although I have the impression that this player could also do the job. It is amazing that you adjust all output signals in function of your set. That is precisely want I want to do. Volume control is no problem for the BL 5 but how would you control surround and center speakers

    I have scanned the manual of the Oppo and it indeed allows for volume control of the analog (multichannel) signals as such solving the potential problem for the surround speakers. This is great as it is really perfect for my needs: I am sold and will buy it when I will be in the US in September. As recommended I will use analog rca2rca cables for the connections: in front to the Beolab 5's and for the surround channels to active Beolab Pentas (these are the only other ones I currently have).

    Soundproof, I wish it had the pre-outs as shown on your example of the Oppo but it hasn't. The connections are shown here: http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/review/home_entertainment/panasonic/dmp-bd65/367507 It concerns a simple 'stereo' analog output. I have just connected this with analog cables to the line-ins of the beolab 5 but noticed not any improvement in bass compared to the digital signal. It all remains pretty normal (bass) even at high volume levels. What I will try now is

  • Beolab 5 low Frequency Effects

    Hi everybody, Since a couple of weeks I am the happy owner of beolab 5's which I have installed in my living room. As I use Sonos - digitally connected - for streaming music a marriage with my beocenter 2 did not offer a good solution because of the "CD repeat" problem. As an alternative I now use a Music Hall 15.2 DAC with spdif output which serves as a digital bridge between on the input side a Sonos, Blue Ray player and the usb input from my laptop and on the other side the beolab

  • Re: Beolab 5 low Frequency Effects

    I agree that too much low bass is not desirable in all situations. But here we are in a movie so I don't understand why the subs of the BL 5 are not activated (or very little) in an action scene while the sub of my silly 2.1 system - based on an analog signal - is really active? Would a surround preamp which redirects all LFE to the BL 5 solve the solution? I cannot imagine that a BL 2 is needed for movies? Thanks
