In the newest B&O pricelist I see a 'BeoAmp 16' listed.

Does anyone know, what that is?

Itemnumber 9709 under BeoLink - DK price is 22.295 DKK.

Had a chat with my local B&O retailer today regarding the BeoAmp 16 and they were very helpful.

My new property will have passive ceiling mounted speakers, installed by the developer, and the BeoAmp would allow me to 'zone' these speakers by room.

I was quoted £2500 for the BeoAmp 16 but told I'd also need an Essence, for each zone, connected to the BeoAmp. So this setup would be £4860...

Is there any other way to control the BeoAmp or is connecting multiple Essence's the prescribed route? If so it seems like an oversight that the Essence wasn't built into the BeoAmp from the beginning...

Here is a bit more information:

As I understand it (?), it is quite versatile.

You should be able to connect any audiosystem, but using Essences seems obvious, since this is thought of as a hidden installation with the speakers built-in to the wall/ceiling.

Another scenario might be using some of the channels for a BSys4 cinema setup with in-wall speakers and the rest for one or more zones with the Essence and/or a BS9000 together with a NL/ML Converter.

Some people want that sort of 'clean installation'.

Building-in (8) Essences would make it a very fixed solution.

Would be nice to hear about real life experiences with this amp.

I used one recently for an install where I was replacing an existing (non-B&O) whole house audio system.

The customer had recently bought a moment and a pair of speakers, but also had a (non-B&O) whole house audio system that he wanted to replace.

In each room in the house there were passive speakers in the ceiling as well as a cat5 cable for the room controllers of the old audio system - all of these were wired back to a central cupboard.

I installed a beoamp 16 in the cupboard, along with 6 x Essence boxes (one for each room), and used the existing cat5 cables to install an IR-eye in each room connected to the corresponding Essence, and connected each Essence to a pair of channels on the BeoAmp 16.

The BeoAmp16 is very flexible, you can use the channels individually, or if higher output power is required, you can bridge two channels together. (you can also turn off individual channels using the DIP switches if they are not all needed).

Thanks Martin,

is my idea of combining e.g. 5 channels for the output of a BSys4 right, then?

Could be a uniquie possibility for some users/buyers.

Yes, you could even use to connect passive speakers for the entire 12 channels of output that the BS4 is capable of providing, and still connect a couple of BS Essence boxes as well for speakers in other rooms, or perhaps bridge all the outputs to provide 8 channels at 160W (maybe for a 7.1 setup, albeit most subwoofers tend to be active these days).

If you'd use a WiSA transmitter, it would be no problem to integrate a BL19 (or two) with the BSys4.

Using the BV11/Avant etc it would be even easier.

The BeoAmp 16 is a 16 channel Amplifier that has RCA inputs and screw terminals as outputs for passive speaker like BeoVox 2

Yes, Bjørn - that is what we already have learned from the previous posts.

P.S. Feel free to post pictures directly - Beoworlders are very fond of pics ;-)
