Hunting for a pair of Beolabs for the bedroom. What could be more lovely than waking up to Mozart at 6:30am before 3 young kids come rushing in at 7am asking for whole day of entertainment during the family COVID19 self-isolation? At present I have a horrible iPhone alarm tone to shatter me from my slumber. I’m thinking about a pair of BL6002 or BL6000. Is the BL6002 (about £600-£650) worth paying more for over the BL6000 (£400-£450)?

I’ve also seen mention of the ‘Chanterelle’ colour version of the BL6002 which would look divine in the room but not seen one in the flesh. Has anyone seen it or had this colour?

I have had a pair of 6002, but I unfortunately sold them. Then it comes to sound the Beolab 6002 can not be compared to the 6000, they are much much better. I also had 6000 at the time and did a comparison, and I was surprised by the huge difference. I was most surprised by the difference in weight, with the 6002 being noticeably lighter. If I find another pair for a reasonable price I will definitely buy them!

I confirm the improved sound of the 6002, more dynamic and with more bass.

I don't remember anyone at the time claiming audio improvements for the X000 to X002 change. I thought the main change was from linear amps to Icepower, primarily to meet EU standby power requirements rather than a performance upgrade.

On the other hand I may have just made all of that up!Laughing

It seems that there is no sound difference for the 8000 MKII vs 8002. For Karel, I did compare the 6002 and 8002 I am owning too: There is a difference to the advantage of 8002, but not big.

Perhaps because of age. But I had  both 8000 mk2 and 8002. The 8002 to me sounds better overall. It has more clarity in the mid and upper range. The best way to describe is that the 8000s sounds more muffled to me than the 8002. I do not have the 6002 but a late model 6000 right before the 6002 came out. The 8002 is paired with a BL 2 and the 6000s with BL 11. The specs say the 8000 and 8002 are supposed to sound the same but they didn’t to me. My 8000s were from the 194xxx serial number. I recently sold them on Craigslist...

B&O products I use by zones in my home: 

Platform: Apple; TV/Office: Beolab 8002 (Red) + Beolab 2 [Sony 65A1E OLED TV, Apple TV 4K];  Living: Beoplay A9 (MK2); Bedroom: Beolab 6000 (Red) + Beolab 11 + Beosound Core [LG UST Projector, Apple TV 4K]; Dining: Beosound Stage; Portable: Beosound 1 (GVA, Anthracite), Beoplay P6, Beoplay H9 (3rd Gen)
