A Wisa receptor with digital Spdif outs???

Or a plastic Acoustic Lens that you can attach over the original lens to narrow the high frquencies dispersion?

Well the first day was one full of frustrations. The app refused to recognise them and they refused to connect wirelessly for hours until finally they did. However they were now stuck in wireless mode with the only way out through the app. Additionally, one lens was in narrow and the other wide. 

Late last night I gave up as now the master appeared to die.

This morning, with a fresh mind we started again. The master power lead had fallen out! After 4 attempts the app finally found them. Success! Now I could use a wired Beosystem too.

And wow! I'm sorry but my 5's just had to go on listening to the 50's the first time a year ago. There is no comparison. The 50's are 5 killers in every sense. The detail is there whereby I am hearing much that was previously absent. The colour is warm all through the range. The treble sweet and light. The bass rich and huge.

 

These are hugely impressive and capable speakers.Expensive yes, but I can see why. If you can afford them I am sure you will be pleased with the performance, just try not to get too upset during the installation process!

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad

Yes, but part of them works... it is “only” ;

1. Frequency Tilt, Sound Enhance)
2. Selectable Sound Designs
3. Automated Measurement of Speaker Distance(for time-alignment at the listening position) via mic..
4. Loudness on/off
5. Sound Design control
6. Manual Selection og Re-naming innput
7.  The “About” menu mangler Speaker Info om “Input Signal” to display detailed information about the input audio signal or “Temperatures”
8. USB Volume enabled?
9 APP manual/instruksjon 
that is is missing as of today.
