Hi all,

Looking at adding the LG CX / Stage / Stand combo to my setup but it would mean moving my A9.

The easiest place, without wallmounting, is on the landing but this would be next to a floor-to-ceiling glass window which is south facing. Has anyone had any issue with sun-damage with the A9 in direct sun?

Thanks,

Nick

I have a very similar issue. I would like to buy an A9 but the best place for this appears to be next to south facing glass doors: Mediterranean sunshine.

Did you move it into the sunshine? Any issues / UV damage?

Known issue for 8 years that B&O hasn't fixed.  Putting it in the sun will make it pop and click more. Can't tell you about sun damage, if anything the white model MIGHT as well as the fabric.

Thanks for the pointer - that’s a valuable thread.

I think the info I’ll draw from this all is that direct hot sunlight is probably a bad idea! I’ve found an alternative in the Level, which also has the benefit of not being overkill in my small apartment…

Cheers!
