Hi, I’m trying to upgrade from Playmaker to Core, but the single powerlink plug is giving me some headaches. 

I thought I’d be able to split it using a RJ45 splitter, 1x male to 2x female, but it doesn’t work. See picture linked below

 

It’s described as Cat5 if that makes a difference?

They dont sell a RJ45 splitter tho :(

 

The powerlink splitter would require me to exchange the entire cabling out to the speakers, as those are currently RJ45 to "round Powerlink"

 

Does anyone know if powerlink signals strictly require a certain kind of RJ45 cable? Such as CAT7 is ok but CAT5 is no good..?

I think the best result can you reach with the original powerlink splitter from B&O

If you don’t have or buy the B&O RJ45/PL cables look for specs and infos how to make these here:

The RJ45/PL splitter is best bought from your lical dealer

Thanks smuehli!

Unfortunately this female shielded RJ45 coupler is one of the few items that I couldn't get any of my suppliers to make reliably.  Please avoid any non-B&O products for this item, as they are likely to have the same production issues that I encountered!  A genuine B&O product from your dealer is the best option here.

Kind regards, Steve.

My local B&O dealers here in Copenhagen couldn’t offer anything. Guess I have to redo the cabling. Bit silly of B&O not to offer a solution...

There’s a solution!!!

The part number is 3132047 for the PL Y splitter RJ45 and you’ll need a short PL RJ45 to RJ45 cable 0.5m part number 6271212. Maybe contact another dealer that is able and willing to assist you.

Sorry.....but was the picture in my post not visible???

That should contain everything you - and especially - your dealer should know for ordering.

By the way - I bought one from my dealer recently......he had that in stock in the shop.
