But do we have more information about the Beosound Core?

I cannot seem to find a manuel.

In the new pricelist it have taken over Essense MKII which now must be AOL.

Beovision Eclipse, Beolab 20, Beosound 1 Google assist, Beoplay M3, Beoplay H6

What kind of preamp would you use to drive 4x BL5?

What I would like to know is if all this BL50 magic isn't 90% due to the room compensation feature.

If you run 4x BL5 from a Beosystem 4 you will have sound spread all over your room, in all directions as they are very wide. If you run the same setup from a preamp with Dirac Live, for example, the sound will be much more detailed.

I've tried this configuration in my 7.0 setup (1x BL10 4x BL5 and 2x BL8000) and the improvement was very impressive. Still I'd like to hear a pair of BL50 for comparinson.

I'd be bright red after hammering my credit card for £23k. Then my wife would turn blue. Does that count?

Nothing better than a straight sale. I'm genuinely delighted for you Smile

These really are fabulous speakers.  I know this may sound nonsense - but they really are worth £23k.  The pleasure I could get from a pair of these, if I had the right setting for them, would be immense.  

Please, everyone, and I mean this - don't judge anything until you've seen them, and properly listened to them.  Once you've done this, and if you comment negatively afterwards, I will properly respect your opinion.

Pounch. Go to your room, immediately, and think about what you've just said.

Once you're ready to apologise to me, your Mum and Dad, and everyone else - you can come downstairs and watch telly.

Now I'm really curious about the price of a pair in the US. Am I so jaded with B&O that the price point seems like a downright bargain? LOL

£23k is about $30k USD.  I have never seen the British price lower than the US price at least by that much.

That may be because the UK pound is about as valuable as Donald Trump's pocket fluff...

They are beginning to grow on me. Has anyone mentioned the likeness to Minions?

Heard (and saw) them the second time today - just as impressive as last week ;-)

I had a demo yesterday afternoon. Aesthetically they are truly beautiful, to my eyes at least. There is an aire of real quality and weight to them. Bigger and more imposing than the photos suggest. Then came he audition. 5 seconds. That is all it took. They demolish Beolab 5's! Huge tight bass and a very impressive sound stage. Imaging was also very impressive. Mid detail in a different league. It was noticeable to me that they didn't sound like B&O. They have that richness and warmness usually missing from most B&O speakers. I have to say for the first time ever, I found speakers that really blew me away. And that includes the 90's which did not! I came home to my 5's and was bitterly disappointed. 

So now I have a problem. I've fallen in love with this girl and just have to have her! She may be an expensive *** but when you are in love you don't care.

She will haunt me now til I have her!

That's a great analogy... when I first saw them in Denmark in May it was love at first sight - I immediately forgot about the other products I had seen they very so impressive. Never heard a speaker that can go down to 15Hz before - the whole store shakes. I love sound that you can physically feel
