They should not vibrate on there own. Before i've fixed my 12-2's on the wall i've heard many unpleasing sounds as they are designed to have a specific aperture for the bass in conjunction with the wall. Also they had room to vibrate as they where not fixed to anything.

Check your wall, loose cables, cable-caps that came loose. Also check if the dry-wall-plug's are not protruding from the wall. My brackets seem to vibrate as they are not 100% flush with the wall. Good luck!

The wall is concrete and everything is attached as it should be.

Finally BS2 arrived! I like it very much but I had to reduce the bass with the equalizer from iTunes.

You can see he/she likes the pedestal! Connected to the Loewe? (Like the candle-led-light!)

Very nice indeed Benoît.

Are you saying that BS2 is too boomy (like Beolit 15) ?

Yes it is, and much more than the Beolit 15. The 'beast' has much more voice... More clear and precise sound. It's probably placement dependent for the bass. So, I reduced drastically the bass frequencies (-6 till -10db for the low frequencies in iTunes). Now it's perfect for my taste and bass are still strong and powerful but not boomy anymore. Maybe in a next update there will be a software placement switch like for the new M5...

Only problem : I couldn't set my TuneIn account in the BeoSetup app. Maybe it does only work with a paid account ('connexion failed')?

I have heard that an update will bring tone controls like the A6 got recently.

two questions, Benoit:

- what's the manufacturer and model of the great big lamp on the left?
- where did you put your BS2? What is that nice looking white thingy?

BS2 is an interesting product but slightly overpriced and unfortunately I am still a fan of stereo sound.
But I agree that in the flood of wireless gadgets something special.

You have a nice environment for the right combination.

Can show what it looks like LED lamp on the other side- close up :) ?

The light is called Flame (Ingo Maurer) and the flame moves on the led panel (which is both sides of the light)

I agree it's a bit overpriced but I had a small discount. Although not stereo, I'm impressed on how the sound is spread in the room.

TWG:

The light is from Ligne Roset but the model has been stopped I think. It is called Extensia (https://www.ligne-roset.com/us/modele/lighting/floor-lamps/extensia-fluo/598). It has an light diffuser to the back as well.

The BeoSound 2 is on a small side table made of fiber glass and painted with white lacqer. I bought a couple of them (small+ larger one) but don't remember the brand.

Which white thingy are you speaking about? The marble ball? It's Bong (fake marble painted) from Cappellini. Or the egg with legs? This one is a small sculpture from a french artist Pascal Profit.

Same here Chris. I love mine, hope I can keep an iPad alive and functioning for a good long while to support it. Kind of a scary looking place for one there though, looks like a slight bump would have it skiing down the slope and into the water!

Sadly no, because only the black one is a 15. We did pair the 12s once using a mixer and cables, but that was an unsightly setup to say the least Big Smile
