Hi Beoworld,

I'm a completely new to this world would love to understand how to setup the following:

I have Beolab 5 MK2 speakers and Beovision Eclispe (2018). 

How do I set up these devices in the best way that I can: connect it to a turn-table with a Pioneer amplifier, and make it very easy to stream music from Iphone/Ipad with Spotify&Youtube?

(I know these are probably stupid questions...)

Welcome to Beoworld.

No stupid questions here!

When you want to connect your (BL5) speakers, you must select which speakers you have connected to each Power Link (PL) socket in the Speaker connections menu.

Best see he Setup Guide here

https://support.bang-olufsen.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042756811

under Sound Settings - also watch out for how to make Speaker Groups etc.

 

The Sound Center also has a line in connection port.

However, I am not sure, what you mean by ‘a turn-table with a Pioneer amplifier?

Since the speakers of the Eclipse - including the BL5’s - are powered speakers with their own built-in amplifiers, all you need is the socalled RIIA amplifier.

These usually have L/R outputs, so that you would need a Phono L/R to stereo jack cable for the connection.

 

Since the Sound Center has support for both Spotify Connect and AirPla (2) you can easily stream music from the iPhone/iPad.

 

Have fun with your Eclipse/BL5 combination.....that is an excellent setup.

 

Pardon me the question - didn’t your dealer offer you any setup advice?

Oh thank you so much, that’s such a helpful reply. 

I bought the setup from a dealer abroad and we are communicating over email/WhatsApp. As the dealer was already arranging so many things, I felt a bit uncomfortable to also ask these simple setup questions...

But thanks again for helping me out, it makes me feel totally confident about my purchase :-)

Good to hear!

Please report back how you get along with your setup and if you like it.

P.S. Feel free to post more questions - lots of users here with experience.
