I am about ready to upgrade my 20s to 50s. Unfortunately I do not have a dealer near enough to me to listen before buying. I have heard the 90s. I know the 50s will not perform as the 90s. But I did want to ask anybody who is familiar with both, how does the imaging of the 50s compare to that of the 90s?

Some free advice - not that I think you need it.

Check with your Dealer what the source is going to be. Personally, unless it was for movie going, I’d ensure there’s a decent audio source somewhere handy. Listening to Spotify/Dezer etc via a BV Powerlink connection.....well think what you want...it’s ones and zeros and anything more than 320k can’t be distinguished right??

Demo will be using a Core, possibly a video source, and some high resolution files on a USB. I am thinking that should give me a pretty good idea of how they sound? (I will take and welcome any and all advice😊)

Oh my gosh, that feeling is so unforgettable. I remember the trepidation ordering my first Beolabs in 2000. I was so nervous and thought “what the hell, life’s short, do it!!!” It’s second only to the first few seconds when you power them up and that gorgeous music bathes the room. Bliss!

We want to see photos ASAP!

Excited for you.

Good move, the BL50 are definitely a massive step-up from BL5.

You will not regret it one bit.

Has anybody seen the metal grill on the piano black edition and have an opinion how it looks in person? How shiny is it in person? Am thinking of ordering silver 50s with black cloth on the back and metal grill on the front.....am trying to visualize how the silver of the 50 and the silver of the grill would look together.

Thanks!

Only seen pictures of the piano ball and does remind me of the Mercedes grille. They are rare and I’ve only ever seen the standard aluminium and black cloth version at dealers. Looks flash now but probably will be a bit dated in a few years. I’m not sure if I like it or not. Depends a lot on your decor I suppose and personal taste. One man’s meat is another’s poison an all that....Would be worth hunting a pair down in piano black.
