Hi all,

as newbie I have a question on my newly acquired Beomaster/Beosound 5.

I would like to be able to stream music to the Beomaster. I was told this could be an easy thing to do, via the USB connection on the back.

Could somebody enlighten me on what would be needed and where to get it? 

An additional question would be to understand how to refurbish my Beosound 3000, and if this can be done using a repair kit or best left to a repair centre? The problem relates to the doors not closing.

Thanks for your input on both questions!

regards Ben

Hi Ben and welcome to the forum.

For the BS5/BM5 you can use this one:

https://www.behringer.com/Categories/Behringer/Computer-Audio/Interfaces/UCA222/p/P0A31#googtrans(en|en)

Please note - you can also buy that from the sponsor of this site SteveSoundsHeavenly.

 

For the 3000 question - just wait.......or repost the question in a couple of days.

Hi MM,

thanks for the link. Not sure though, can I connect via Bluetooth, or I need to plug in my phone or iPad to be able to work e.g. with Spotify ?

You'll need this USB-Interface to add the AUX-In physical connection to your Beosound 5.

To the interface you can connect a Bluetooth adapter with a cable. Search for an aptx-compatible Bluetooth-Receiver (if you plan to use non Apple sources as well) as it provides better sound quality

Hi and welcome here.

1: Are you sure you have used the input connections of the USB interface.

2: Did you expect the BS5 to change automaticly to A.Aux? 
This is not the case - you will have to choose that manually....using the ui of the BS5 or a Beo4.

Moet je AUX niet eerst activeren in het instellingen menu?

Er staat me zoiets van bij.

Dat het standaard niet bij de bronnen staat.

Maar wel nadat je het hebt geactiveerd.

I don’t understand what you write ;-(  allthough I think I get what you mean.

And that was part of the picture from the userguide, that I posted before.

Alle instellingen zijn zoals in de beschrijving. Zelfs al een keer gereboot. Maar zonder resultaat. Zit in de Beomaster denk ik. Wellicht naar een B&O-dealer gaan

Zoals op de NL forum reeds gevraagd: heb je een BS5+BM5 combi of alleen een BM5?
