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?

I finally got new cables but still no luck, again it's a lot less but I think either in the tv or in the master there is a bad ground somewhere. Cat7 between the speakers is fine and so are other cat 5e or cat6 cables, but between the tv and the master is where the problem is... cat 7 gives ticking, cat 6 gives ticking and an electro sound when changing volume and or anything speaker related(data ground) and cat 5e gives the least of ticking and my cheapest cat 5e cable doesn't give any but the most electro sound. Spoke with Willie and he also confirms that's a bad ground on the data channel, so now we have to find out if it's in the tv or in the master speaker. I don't want to burst your bubble, but this is what I am dealing with

What exactly is the problem ?

Are these cables for PL?

@BEOVOX141

 

Sorry I missed it, but it seems like i had a cable issue as in the shielding broke or something but even with the new cables i had the same weird issue and then all of a sudden it was gone. So in short they're fixed now, but we have no idea what the problem was(is/has been) as nothing has changed but the issue is gone. so yaaay and Huh?

Hi

Unfortunately, I'm not the owner of Breolab 50 or 90, nor Beolab 5

But I listened to these..one of the songs on Beolab 50: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtwUyDPXROQ

Amazing ... what a divine sound, The room is very acoustic next to a bottle of 25 year old cognac and a pleasant company :)

The entire album, Famous Blue Raincoat is brilliant.

Try Song of Bernadette on the same album

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

I am! Setup and connection to the app went smoothly and the tweeters are rising and falling simultaneously, something I understand does not always happen😀.

No grills yet. They are lost in transit. Along with the microphone. Hopefully they will arrive next week, or dealer is sending replacements. And I disconnected all of the cables to my BV7. Had sat box etc in an old Beosystem 1 cabinet but with the size of the 50s, I decided to get rid of the cabinet as no longer fits well. Have cables all over the place right now. Was planning to post pictures when things are looking a little better. Have not figured out the cable management issue yet. My 20s were plugged in to a Panamax unit in the Beosystem 1 cabinet but my understanding is that 50s need to be plugged in directly to an outlet. Have lots of ugly outlets behind the 7 but using them looks horrible. Am trying to come up with a way to hide everything.

You did the hard part.

White braided sleeve you can find see below. You can buy shorter mains cables in white very cheap from Amazon. If you don't want to pay electrician to move your outlets you can create and paint a very correct-size false wall panel to channel cables from floor. And I WOULD use a surge protector. Good luck.
