Hi all,

I find myself more and more listening to music on my BeoLit 15, streaming from my iPhone - even though I have a Beovision V1 with two Beolab 6000 connected to it, with an AppleTV that happily receives music streamed from my iPhone also!

What is going on here? Is this possible? Is it just me getting old? Help!

Thanks,

Christof

Same here. And I have Beolab 9s, 8000s and 4000s. Beolit 15 is a lot of sound in a small package. Easy to carry around the apartment and punchy sound. It connects quickly and is easy to use. That's why I use it mostly. The other speakers are great but not portable. It's funny really Smile

One of these days they'll build a mobile phone into your speaker, so you don't need to carry a separate phone around Big Smile

Hi Didole,

I truly do the same! I think it's because we've become so used to music citing into our lifestyle and travelling with us. I've lovely B&W CM1 in my lounge but for the last few years, I take my iPhone around the house and... use its little built in speaker - it's just so convenient and instant. I use it in the kitchen even music on the toilet :)

Ok, so in the end you are all saying that for convenience reason, you are doing the same.

But what about the quality of the sound? Am I wrong, or does the Beloit 15 sound as good as (or better) than the Beolab 6000, at least for rock and pop music?

More bass in Beolit 15 and punchy sound. Less stereo and quality maybe but I prefer Beolit 15. But it's because it's portable and for music on the go.

For a tv I prefer regular speakers (so BL6000 would be preferable there).

Music wise I think BL6000 sounds good but less party than a BL15Smile

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

 The truth is that everyone is now listening to music in a more personal way than they used to. People generally listened to music in the past  in the living room with a large, powerful stereo system. Now, people listen with a small, independent system while they are doing work in a smaller space. It is a function of architecture, different social living habits and the fact that the designers have finally figured out  that they need to cater to how people live. I do the same thing; the Beolit 15 is more than adequate for 90% of what I do.

I wouldn't have said this a particularly new thing since when I was growing up I had my own radio and record player in my bedroom, pre streaming people carried portable radios everywhere and listened too and enjoyed music, the walkman made music both personal and portable, streaming has given us a broader catalogue.

As I see it there are pros and cons, on the one hand people listen in isolation and tend to flick more between tracks or albums, on the other hand when you do have a party everyone gets a chance at being DJ and you open your mind up to different music.

But the difference now is that a Beolit 15 s enough for a party. Small speakers has evolved tremendously over the years.

true - I have to admit that I am tempted to move with the times - I was shocked at just how good the A1 is.
