Thanks Michael!

I think you could teach me a lot about how to get my other half to accept more B&O! Big Smile

Congratulations, Steve, and well-deserved. 

If you're looking for topics, how about a compare/contrast of the BL 4000 v. BL17s? 

Also (I think I've asked about this in the past, and may have missed your answer), how should one prepare for a speaker audition at a B&O store, and what should the audition experience ideally be like?  For example: should we expect the dealer to arrange to rapidly switch between speakers A and B?  Should we expect the dealer to compensate for volume differences between speakers A and B?  Or is this something we should manage ourselves?  Or write-off as a hopeless task Laughing   etc.

I usually work on the basis that forgiveness is easier to obtain than permission ;-)

Honey, we’re not going on holiday for a few years as I bought some 90’s and I didn’t trade in the 50’s either as those are now rear speakers. Please forgive meStick out tongueWhistleBig Smile

Hi Steve

What about a volume control comparison ?

Old/new gear, full analog/full digital...

I think there was a thread on this topic here, may be started by Geoff Martin ?

Thanks guys,

These are some great ideas!  I do like the Beolab 4000/17 comparison, that is planned for as soon as I reach 4000 subscribers.... Whistle

Can anyone find a link to Geoff Martin's thread that CB mentioned please, so that I can check this out?

Kind regards, Steve.

Hi Steve,

A comparison between old and new stuff would be great. Like what does the quality of 6000s nowadays compare to. Is it the m3, m5... pair of lab 8000s sound like the edge? And so on and so forth.

A different topic of interest for me would be Restauration of old‘ish speakers. E.g. I have a set of lab 1‘s which I really would like to keep as long as possible. Do i have to refoam them. Is there anything I can do?

And a last and short one. Whenever I want to listen to music loudly, should I start with lower volumes for the internals of the speaker to warm up, like a car which i want to speed up, Or can I just annoy my neighbors right away?

Thanks a lot and looking forward for the next episodes!

Thanks Robin,

These are some great ideas!  I am planning a few old vs. new speaker tests, plus a video on speaker listening.

I'm not the person to cover repairs or refoaming unfortunately, as this is outside my skill set, I will leave that so one of the repair experts to consider! Geeked

Kind regards, Steve.

Maybe a video to demonstrate the beauty and the benefits of Beolink NL as it seems unknown to too many users.

Something like how to set it up on various hardware, how to include AirPlay as a Beolinkable source and how to distribute legacy sources such Beograms to modern equipments by a simple physical touch !

Like Robin mentioned, would be very interesting to heard how the old Beolab classics (or even some of the best of Beovox) compare to the newer lineup.

Beoplay A2
Beoplay Earset
Beoplay H6 (Gen 2)
Beoplay S3 (pair)
Beoplay S8
Beovox CX50 (2 pairs)

Beovox RL 6000

Just working on a speaker listening video now, ready to post before the weekend.
