Hello everyone

I’m about to have an extension built, and part of that extension will be a wall with our 11-55 mounted on it. I’ve decided to keep our Beolab 2 and build this into our setup. Flanking the 11-55 I want some supplementary speakers, apro pro achieving surround sound.

I’ve had 6 and 8000s in the past so I’m aware of the differences, and I’m not that interested in massive sound. What would be the benefit apart from age between the standard 6000, or 6002? They’ll be wall mounted on brackets.

Regards Chris

My understanding of the change to 6002 (and 8002) was to meet European standby power requirements, b&o at the time  made no claims to have improved the audio performance in any way (I can't remember them claiming to have made it worse though, either)Laughing

Ban boring signatures!

Why would you settle for the 6000's ,when 8000's are far superior. ( Unless it's a dollar issue ?)

I've had both, and a B&O engineer is on record as saying that the 6000's sounded like a car radio playing through a downpipe !

I know it is a matter of taste but I actually like the 6000 design better than the 8000.

I have a pair of 6000 but never had the chance of listen to the 6002. Some people report that the sound of the 6002 is a little more dynamic others say it is more or less the same - probably a matter of taste and you ears ability.

I just want some surround type speakers at the front. I’ve had both and agree the 8000s are more powerful, but as they’re backing onto my mother in laws living room, I don’t want to deafen her more than she already is!

At to be honest, I want more of this look. Something a bit more subtle.

Guys, I couldn't agree more. In my mind these are actually more iconic than the 8000s. From a design perspective, they are perfect; proportions, form, the material and workmanship, dialled down and perfectly resolved where as the 8000s take it just over the line, which for me is a step too far. That's not to say that the 8000s aren't super, but the 6000s are just mhmm.

And let's not forget, which BeoLab is in MoMA's permanent collection?

When the BeoLab 6002 (and 8002) were released I was rather stunned that the lower part "effective frequency range" of the 6002 was better than the 8002 and and way better than the 8000. Also the 6000 was rated as 2x 59W, 6002 as 2x 125W (same as the 8002!) Unfortunately I never had the chance of hearing the BeoLab 6002.

Anyway... Since 1 month the owner of BeoLab 6000's with silver cloth... Nice addition to the 8000's and BL11. Can't complain (anymore) about the surround sound :-)
