The BS Essence has now (August 2017) been discontinued and replaced by the BS Core.

However, you can't find any User Guide for the Core (as box) yet.

I suppose, that it will work with the 'wheely' remote and the BeoRemote One/BT.

Anyone knows if it has support for the ir-receiver/ir-eye just like with the BS Essence?

his does mean, that there is a new ‘version’ of the Core, right?

No, only a hardware upgrade, when I got the boxes it just set with a red marker IR. In the small docu I got from the dealer in Dutch it just said the only way to Know if it is IR version is: Type - and partnumber Type 3051 Partnumber 1293042. (Both) Core without IR is 1293039.

You need at least the SW version 1.1.19508. They mis-used the DPL port, it still says DPL they dit not print IR on it.

 

With ‘old eye’ do you mean the one for the Active/Passive Link boxes?

Yes normal @red eye

 

Or is it a new version of the current ir eye with the Join button, that is used for the Core?

New Eye is green and contains join just like the Essence, it is the same.

I guess I am one of the first a guinny pig. 

 

Yesterday I was shocked, apparently I did not connect one of the cores correctly with cat7 and it automaticly sends out a network to join without password, this is really not OK, You should at least get a pop up instaed of simply sending out such a signal, any one can break in.

1st edition Core's (those that ship with BeoSound Shape etc.) will not have IR. There is another version of the Core which will have IR functionality released eventually. What remains to be seen is weather or not that change implementation will warrant a MKII or if it will just be an implemented change.  

Ah, you know... A little B&O here, a little there

The core is on the price list now and the essence is gone!

€745, think that is more expensive than the essence was

Indeed - and thanks BeoMegaMan, that sounds promising.

According to BeoMegaMan, yes.

congratulations - I am sure we will all be interested in your experiances

is it the "standard" non-Shape Core ?

- how does the eye attach ?

- what is its firmware level ?

..... mine is v1.2.2169 (which is a beta)

Attached the same as an Essence 2 with rj45 on the DPL port. It does not say IR.

They added a new part 1293042 it is a hardware upgrade, and not backwards compatable with older cores. Type 3051

I am running latest sw 1.1.19910.

I can press it turn volume up and down, but no command on beo 4 or beo 1. Maybe something in the settings? It does blink when using the remote but nothing happens?o who can help me out?

I will be adding one to my bathroom tomorrow attached to a beolink passive and some beovox 1.

If I have wired it wrong it will come out tommorrow but I doubt itCool

My Essence’s IR eye blinks it’s green light when I change volumes.

Are you at least seeing the eye from red eye (lol) to green when the Core is activated by the App ?

Ehhh, I feel stupid. I am not really familiar with the Netlink products yet. Should have put it in option 1.....Wink

Works just like the Essence MKII in a linkroom.

Now the challenge, the passive is not switching on. I did get a special cable, but not a 5v relais?

Hi chucky,

It is worth double-checking the cable, as a normal RJ45 to Powerlink cable won't trigger the Passive correctly from an Essence, PlayMaker or Core (or an B&O TV since the V1).  You don't need a 5v relay, just this specially wired version of the cable:-

Kind regards, Steve.
