Hi guys,

can anybody please tell me when the change Beolab 3 from MKI to MKII had taken place. Wasn`t it somewhere in 2007? But with which serial-no? And is the MKII the latest version?

Thank you very much for your help.

Take care.

Uff,

after one hour searching the old forum, I found the thread with the answer from Peter.

The woofers and ABRs were changed in September 2007 - supposed to be improved but sound quality seems the same. There are some small changes to the electrical chassis to compensate. The type number changed somewhat confusingly from 689X to 687X

Quite right - the materials and the method of production changed but they should sound just the same! September 2007!

Peter, do you think it will make a difference regarding quality of sound and material if somebody buy a pair of MKI from beginning of 2007 or a newer MKII pair?

I doubt it - B&O themselves state that the changes in the chassis are to maintain the sound quality to the way it was. I wonder however if the change in materials was to address an issue or whether they simply changed supplier. I suspect the latter.

Don`t the newer MKII BL3 came as the BL2 from Czech Republik, the older ones from Denmark?
