Hello all,

I am pondering a thought on purhcasing Beosound Core.

- Have you got any experiences on Core?

- Encountered any problems in usage?

- Thoughts on lifecycle of this product? I bought Essence MK1 as new and unfortunately I was a too early bird for this product to find out (after numerous problems with the system itself) a couple of years later B&O decided not to support it anymore. Huge letdown for customers from the highly respected manufacturer, I would say.

Cheers, folks! Cool 

Audiophiling with:

Beosound Core, Beolab 9s, Beolab 12-2s, Beolab 19, Beosound 1+2, Beoplay M3+M5+M5 David Lynch Ed. and Beosound 3000.

I enjoy mine. I have it running sound for my television connected to a pair of BeoLab 3s & a subwoofer. I'm controlling it with a Control4 system when used for video and either AirPlay 2 or the B&O App for music. The sound is excellent and I haven't had any network issues that were common in a few of the earlier networked products. 

As far as the lifecycle, it's as current as the sources it plays and what firmware it can take, but that would seem to be pretty good as the whole BeoLink Multiroom portfolio is AirPlay 2 compatible which happened to most products well after release. That seems to bode well for active support.

I had significant problems when I tried it in October 2017 and it was all down to the poor software of B&O app at the time. Those issues may in part be resolved. I returned mine for a refund and been using Roon which has been perfect and 100% reliable. I’d encourage you to borrow one from a dealer and try it for a couple of weeks before you buy one or buy on condition that the dealer will refund you if you are not happy. It is all about what you want and whether it meets your needs.

Hello,

maybe to late but here is my experience with the Beosound Core/ app. I’ve bought the BC three weeks ago. Installed the app en became a Deezer member. The BS is connected with my Beolab11. My Beolab3’s also connected to the Beolab11. Also connected to the BS is my (old) T&A K1 av by cd-out with coax cable, transformer and then by 3,5 mm jack to the Line-in on the BS. The reason for connecting the T&A all in one is the very high quality cd-sacd player. It all works😊

The results sofar with the usage of the BC is very nice. No network/ wifi drop-outs, very beautiful sound and high quality. The app is also stable, no problems. Nice settings for finetuning the system. There is no problem with the system goes on standby and activated when there is a signal.

So, I hope that you also enjoy the BS!

With regards, from the Netherlands.

DPL sorry, it’s the digital power link I guess , 

I thought That the only sound that you can get from the digital out of the 9000 it’s from the CD player so maybe you can not get the audio from the Beogram ?

Yes, that is the reason why Carolpa writes the line-in of the Core…..meaning the analog input port.

(That would work - not considering the somewhat clumsy volume/remote controlling).

DPL is - or rather was supposed to be - a digital powerlink output.

This has never been realized on the Core - the port is used for connecting an ir-eye nowadays, if that should be needed.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.
