Hi,

 

Thanks for having another bash at my options settings dilemma. As requested, here's a map of my system in the house - as mentioned, I really can't get the settings right to enable both the BC2 and BM5/BS5 to work together. Withe the below settings, I get no sound out from the BM5/BS5 although the BC2 shows the metadata.

Anyway, thank you for the drawing and thanks for watchingYes - thumbs up

@ Ammier

Was that the s8 connection hub? if so that's very unfortunate, because I was thinking in the back of my head that you could always get one of those, if your tv doesn't have a surround processor, and have 4x bl5 just in stereo. that still would've been an awesome setup :p

Your experience sounds very similar to mine unfortunately as in ''it's the customers fault until we find out it's our fault all along''. I don't remember it ever being like this before and I don't think it's a good long term strategy.

I still don't understand the idea of making and selling products that they themselves don't fully understand. They must know themselves what their resources are, so that is a real head scratcher to me. I don't mind that they improve existing products, I don't even mind helping them in the process, but if I am basically a beta tester at this point I don't feel it's fair to pay full price.

We'll have a good show again on Sunday (7pm Amsterdam time :p), if you or anybody else has any more questions and or ideas feel free to let us know! Thanks for watching :D

 

 

Sorry Michael, I missed this one. I have been travelling like crazy. Anyway caught the latest couple of episodes, really enjoyable. You all seem to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the brand as do I Big Smile

In response to your question it was the S8 hub and may that device burn in hell for all the problems I had with it! lol. As you mentioned on the latest episode, I have also had a look at Loewe, its great stuff but I agree with you not great in the audio department. They have a nice price spectrum on TV´s and its not so hard to integrate, all made in Germany, and processing is developed in house. It think its a great brand!

I was thinking if you move to the 90´s, maybe you should consider a demo pair if cost is a consideration which with them I think it is for most Smile. I mean I have seen them in Sweden and UK, the latter was new from dealer, a cancelled order. It knocked about 20k Euro off them which is not bad.

Hi Ammier,

No problem at all! That’s why it’s on youtube, so if you don’t catch it live you can view it when everBig Smile

Up to 7 months ago, i had nothing but love for the brand. I really don’t like how i’ve been treated and how this is handled. Iam still amazed at the “blame the customer” game until they had to come clean because i got myself in the clean. I can only imagine what Willie goes through, because he won’t play that game and he’s an honest guy. Beyond that when he has to make service/warranty calls in Canada it’s usually several hours drive each way. Also when you help integrating products in houses that are built from the ground up you want to know what you integrate is a solid product, especially at these sort of prices.

Erik so far seems lucky with most things Stick out tongue

The rest of the time i think we’re mostly confused with what the intention is of the product the release or the actions they take Stick out tongue but if i look around on the forum it seems very normal lol

Hope all your travels went well? Was it for fun or business or a bit of both?

The loewe bild 7 doesn’t compete in sound, but that doesn’t make it bad either. It’s quite capable, just not to the same extent. Not is it in the integration with speakers but again it’s still good enough for most cases probably.

I am looking at the price drifferential between showroom model vs new. Iam also still thinking if, if new, i can trust the quality control.

Anyway i’ll keep everybody updated, but any suggestions are always welcome :D

Hi frog,

I spoke to Willie and we’re both impressed with your setupYes - thumbs up

Anyway, he asked me to ask you to email him at beowillie@gmail.com

So he can help you out step by step via email.

Hope you can get together and fix your issue :) also send him your drawing please. I did that but for some reason it got resized to a fairly small picture. Hope this helps you outBig Smile

Hi Michael,

Hope all is well. I have not been around for awhile, work and two small children takes up a lot of time Smile 

I am all caught up on the latest from you guys, really enjoying it. Some good banter!

The only thing I would suggest is, only if it makes sense, to have a downloadable podcast version. The episodes are quite long and it would be easier to catch them on the go, I rarely have time to catch them live.

In terms of topics: latest rumours is always fun, I think a session on alternatives to b&o products (competitors) could be cool and possibly general tech developments relevant to B&O.

How is it going with the 50s? Whats the latest? The white ones were crazy, loved them!! Still thinking of the 90s? Have you thought about getting a demo pair, you save about 20k. I have seen a couple in the Netherlands and Sweden. If you got the warranty, it might make sense. 

I am waiting to move before I decide whats next but with a 9 months old and 3.5 years old maintaining the perimeter around the 20s is exhausting, might put up an electric fence Big Smile. Perhaps I am at a life stage where everything has to be on the wall.

By the way I thought you might find these vids interesting as a fellow tech enthusiast:

Sennheiser are launching a soundbar with active room compensation, its how I imagine a B&O´s would be. Got great reviews at CES:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iejOs7EFc5I

This was also a cool video on the latest development in tv tech, really interesting watch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fdj3rwP7fN8

I also heard the other day, the Kii three active speakers and I think they are based in the Netherlands, fantastic sound but ugly. Would definitely consider them in a more dedicated room!

Anyway, good luck with the next Beotalk!

Hi Ammier,

Sorry for the late response, i’ve been busy. Glad to hear you’ve been doing wellBig Smile

Where would you like the downloadable podcast to be? Or what platform? Apple, soundcloud? Or something else? I can look in to it!

I’ll take the topics into account, after all all sound and tech interests meBig Smile OPPO now makes awesome phones Stick out tongue

The bl50’s are still the same, good and bad... i think i’ve come to a decesion but need to look at the money first. Who wouldn’t Stick out tongue but yeah the white ones were awesome! Jawdroppers lol

I haven’t seen any demo pairs of 90’s in holland, if you see any plz let me know!

Good luck with the kids and the 20’s, atleast the aren’t cats lol i can’t imagine having to keep them safe. Maybe make one of those baby fences around them, electricity seems a bit much Stick out tongue

Thanks for the links, i missed the sennheiser one. It’s supposedly fairly expensive but i do trust sennheiser to get it right. I haven’t seen the kii three yet, i’ll look into them. Always nice when something is more local Big Smile

Eric is on vacation so tomorrow (sunday 7pm Amsterdam time) it’ll be willie and I, and mostlikely that’ll mean we won’t stay on topic lolBig Smile

Anywho also let me know where you’d like it in an audio formYes - thumbs up

Hi Everybody,

Our podcast will live again tomorrow evening 7pm Amsterdam time. Last week we did a little review of Erik's vacation in London, half way through my PC crashed so there is an A and B side.

Turns out however that my cpu cooler was dying and the pump stopped working(it worked intermittently), that is why we didn't have a live show on Sunday. I am very sorry this happened! However I have fixed my rig again and we're ready to rumble :D

If anybody has any questions, suggestion and or topics feel free to leave them here on join us live tomorrow on YouTube (link down below)

hope to see you all tomorrow, and if not, you can always watch it back later at your own leisure :)
