Dear members,

is there a way to connect the Beosystem 7000 to the Beosystem 3 directly without the use of a Beolink converter? Reason I'm asking is that I have compared direct connection of speakers to the Beosystem 7000 vs. connection to the TV and link between 7000 and TV (via 1611 converter) and the sound was much better with direct connection of speakers to the Beosystem. This observation leads me to the second question: can the use of the 1611 converter have such a negative impact on sound in your experience?

Greetings,

Kai

I did not notice a reduction in sound quality but I’m using my BS3 with DPLII to create surround sound from the BS7000. So any potential quality loss might be masked by the improvement in immersion I’m experiencing.

Dear Kai,

Yes, if you have line of sight to both systems for the remote control then you can directly link the Powerlink output of the 7000 to the red and white RCA audio inputs of the Beosystem 3 (eg. AV4) with this cable to avoid needing the converter:-

Please set the Beosound volume to a high level (50-75%) to give you the full range of volume control from the Beosystem 3.  

Kind regards, Steve.

Thanks for the answers.

@Steve: with that solution, I would need to put the Beosystem 7000 to option 1, wouldn't I?

@ DMacri: any Beosystem 3 does have DPLII, do they?

Probably buying a Beosystem 3 is the best solution for me.

Thanks!

Kai

Hi Kai,

Yes, option 1 will work for the 7000.  Beosystem 3 has 8 pin Powerlink outputs, these can work with any B&O powered speakers, via the correct cables, so either newer RJ45 connections or DIN connections are fine.

Kind regards, Steve.

Yes, I have two MkI models and they include DPLII, Dolby Digital, and DTS and can run in 7.1 channels. They have analog, coax digital, and HDMI inputs. Very flexible.
