I am a 25 year veteran of B&O and have recently bought some second hand kit.

I have Beocentre 2 and Beolab 3500 joined by masterlink cable

The Beocentre does not turn on the speaker when CD is played

The Volume "ring" does not adjust speaker volume

 

The remote control does both of those things.....what am i doing wrong?

 

Ive connected the DAB aerial and yet have no reception....

 

Any help would be most appreciated

You’ve done nothing wrong.

The BL3500 is not a speaker - it is a (Master-) Link Room Speaker - meaning that it has its own ir receiver.

This means, that it is controlled directly from where it is located.

The BL3500 can not be turned on by controlling the BC2 (neither directly or by remote), like when ‘normal’ BeoLab speakers are connected to it via PowerLink (e.g. a set of BL4000).

As for the DAB question - that is hard to comment on from here....without further details.

And - welcome to Beoworld.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Is the Beocenter 2 a DAB version? There are a BC2 version without DAB.

Where are you located?

Sure that there is still DAB broadcast, where you live - and not just DAB+ ?

here in the UK DAB is broadcast.

 

I just get absolutely no reception which is strange

Apparently Dab reception can be very unreliable here in UK.
