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.

@ 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
